Gone are the days when real estate agents have to post signs, newsletters, and give out brochures to sell homes. Change came when the internet made it possible to view houses without even going to the sight. Videos were made of houses or properties that are being sold on the market and can be viewed by interested buyers. Actually, buyers used the web as an online shopping tool due to its convenience and it showed that 2% of the population is doing it in 1995. Then it rose to 74 percent in 2004 and shoot up to 92% in 2013. Still, another positive change is happening.
Smartphones are now playing a great role in boosting sales of homes and properties in Naples. Many are joining in this current trend. Others might see this as blind buying. Of course, in every aspect there are pros and cons in doing something as extreme as buying a home without even actually seeing it. Videos might not show those minute details like dirt and molds accumulating on the grout. However, these are superficial problems and can be fixed as minor repairs. The best thing about these videos is that buyers do not have to fly to the home site every time an interesting property comes up on the market. Flying back and forth can be quite expensive for those looking for home with a tight budget. With the use of a smartphone, the real estate agent can just call the client on another state or abroad and just send them a video of a new home. This out of the box thinking has helped homebuyers acquire houses before another interested buyer grabs it. With real estate rising up again, homebuyers are grabbing every chance to close a deal while the property is still selling low in the market.
