June 24, 2020–Virtual home tours are not a new thing, but they have grown considerably in importance recently, allowing prospective buyers to review a number of features and models prior to making the decision to visit a model. It is also a very good way to get initially acquainted with a builder, their home-building experience, values and design offerings.
In Viera, there are more than 25 models in 11 neighborhoods. Eleven of those new home models are available right now by Virtual Tour on this website, VIERA.com (and by direct link from anywhere at VIERA.com/virtual-tours).
According to John Burns Real Estate Consulting, a nationally known group who annually surveys and ranks the nation’s Top Master Planned Communities*, the virtual tour provides access to homes when it is convenient to the buyer. Virtual home tours allow potential home buyers to share features with family members, and discuss and plan the kind of questions they may need to ask when they do make the decision to tour a special home in person.
With so many people spending more time at home and social distancing, the things buyers are looking for in a home are changing too. With remote working conditions, a family may be looking for a home that offers two home offices and a bonus space suitable for student homework. A spacious central gathering space/kitchen/great room may be of growing importance to many buyers. Storage spaces, pantries and other organizational features may be additionally enticing. Energy efficiency may be at the top of mind for some home shoppers.
Pent up demand and low interest rates contribute to the current activity in residential real estate. Being able to study home options virtually and learn a little about neighborhood features at the beginning of the home buying journey is a great option appreciated by many.
*Viera, Florida is ranked among the Top 25 Master Planned Communities in the U.S. by both John Burns Real Estate Consulting and RCLCO Real Estate Advisors.
