Gerry Coffey Auctioneer has recently launched a new property website in conjunction with Ireland’s largest property portal Daft.ie. The new website has many new and exciting features – one of which is the virtual tours. ‘This is the ultimate way to show your house at its full potential,’ according to Gerry Coffey. ‘Using a qualified auctioneer valuer and estate agent like our company to sell your property ensures that your property is given maximum exposure. Virtual tours make good economic sense as research shows that 80 percent of house buyers use the internet to find their new home.’ The property market has changed over the years and it is not a matter of just putting a sign outside a property to have it sold. The internet and virtual tours are revolutionising the way people buy and sell property. Properties with virtual tours on the internet commonly attract 6 to10 times the number of hits and visitors per property than those properties which don’t have a virtual tour. A virtual tour shows off the rooms in the house including the gardens, driveways etc. to the front and rear of the property. This is a far superior method of selling compared to a static photo of the property. The virtual tour gives the viewer the feeling of the space, character and a feel for the house and its surroundings. It actually gives the person the feel of being in the house from the comfort of their computer. Virtual tours are now being used by a select few of the leading residential and commercial auctioneers and estate agents nationwide. Check out www.gerrycoffey.ie for more details.
