A growing number of house hunters across the country are making the biggest financial decision of their lives sight unseen.
According to a recent survey by Redfin, a national online real estate brokerage with more than 1,000 agents, almost half (45%) of people who bought a home in the past year made an offer on a property that they hadn’t seen in person, the highest share since at least 2015, according to a new report from Redfin (www.redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate brokerage. That’s up from just 28% during the same period last year, and 20% in July 2015, when Redfin posed this question for the first time. Redfin agents cite health concerns around the pandemic, accelerating migration trends, and competition fueled by a worsening housing shortage as reasons more buyers are bidding on homes before visiting them.
And in a survey of 45 New York City-based agents conducted by Realtor.com, more than half said that in the past six months they had worked with at least one buyer who was purchasing a primary home without visiting it first.
HomeViewNV offers a clear path for remote purchases, providing peace of mind for buyers and a valuable tool for sellers during uncertain times and uncertain rules on public meeting protocols.
More primary home buyers purchasing already-built properties are willing to go in blind, in part because technology has improved the remote-viewing process. It is becoming more than necessary to use these tools in a hot market like Northern Nevada that is being fueled by new businesses, especially in the high-tech and advanced manufacturing category coming into the region, particularly from California.
HomeViewNV gives agents and sellers the best tool for remote sales. It’s not a Facetime walk through on a cell phone: The Matterport platform is a virtual walk through that allows viewers r to move as they would through the home. The platform also provides accurate measurements for home furnishings or move-in remodeling plans.
As the buying public leans more and more into e-commerce, HomeViewNV stands ready to put your listings in front of the new marketplace. Click here https://www.homeviewnv.com/realtors/ to find out more about our Matterport platform and suite of marking tools.
