What is a virtual video tour?

Burton Media has revolutionised the property industry by introducing virtual video tours to facilitate safe, in-depth viewings of homes from any location. With the flexibility and convenience afforded through this service, customers are now able to conveniently tour multiple properties within a single day – all whilst remaining secure at home! Virtual viewing offers unparalleled access for those seeking their next dream abode in locations across Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex or beyond.

Although most are optimistic about virtual viewings using video tours, there are others who have their reservations and doubts. One of the top reasons why many people may be sceptical is because they felt the videos would purposefully miss out on the less attractive aspects of the home. At Burton Media I try and elevate this fear by showing all aspects of a property and of course, you will want to go on a physical viewing before you decide to purchase. The films are just a very quick way to narrow a search and avoid unnecessary viewings that take up time.

How do I put buyer’s minds at rest?

All of my films start from the outside of the property much like a physical viewing. The outside of the property and the entrance one of the first things in the video tour along with some shots from the local area to give a feel for how and where the property is situated. As I walk around the property and edit the footage I aim to show how and where rooms are in relation to the rest of the property. Viewing the film with a floor plan open can also assist a buyer to really feel exactly what it would be like to be at the house.

Key highlights and features of the property are shown using title screens at the appropriate time in the video tour. Further information about the property can always be found in the brochure.

Which features do I emphasise?

Every effort is made to show every room in the property however I do emphasise the rooms that greatly influence the decision making process when purchasing a new home. The films will include the kitchen, living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms. In the virtual viewing, I do tend to spend a bit more time in kitchen areas of the home to give the potential buyer the chance to take it all in and see all the features the rooms have to offer. I tend to spend a lot of time in the kitchen and it is a very important part of any family home.

In each room I aim to focus on a unique feature such as appliances, exposed wooden beams, fireplaces, high ceilings and sash windows.
