In today’s Alaska Real Estate, more and more often shopping of all kinds has become a virtual affair. Instant information is at everyone’s fingertips—nowhere truer than in Real Estate Eagle River. No sooner has today’s buyer made the decision to start looking than—boom!—the laptop/tablet/iPhone is out and Eagle River Real Estate virtual tours are underway.  

     What’s most surprising is the key finding of the joint Google-NAR study of the growth of the web in home buying. "90% of home buyers searched online during their home buying process,was the headline highlight. That’s 9 out of 10!   
     “What’s surprising about that?” you might be asking yourself. The answer: that data is more than two years old! And we know online searches and virtual tours have skyrocketed since then. 
     To capitalize on the online home search juggernaut, real estate agencies increasingly bring video to their Eagle River Real Estate virtual tours. Many video formats are being used, but the even the most basic use zooms and pans that draw prospects into the picture in a way stills cannot. 
     First-rate Real Estate Eagle River virtual tours, whether they include video or not, augment the buyer’s search experience. Motion makes it feel as if you’re right there, touring the house in person. 
    But…The negative aspects of some virtual tours using video are, unfortunately, just as clear. Slow download time and lagging video streams can lose otherwise interested prospects. In some cases the property itself forces awkward angles that make filming complicated and viewing uncomfortable. It’s simply true that virtual tours are not a good idea for every Alaska Real Estate property. They are, however, a great idea for some. 
     How can you tell the difference? It’s usually a question of the spaciousness of the property itself. Usually, the bigger the home, the easier it is to film a tour—and the better impression it will make on viewers. High-end Realtors® gain from producing and sharing video virtual tours on their websites, but others get strong results by just sticking with high-quality photos. Sometimes the best impression of a small dwelling will be made by a talented still photographer. When selling your Alaska Real Estate home, in a well-rounded marketing plan it is the unique aspects of your property that should shape the media.
