Aberdein Considine has launched new virtual viewing and valuation services to get the property market moving again.
The current restrictions on moving home are expected to be eased later this month if the Scottish Government can move to phase two of its route map out of lockdown.
Until such a time that the restrictions are eased fully, we will give clients the option of using technology to keep social contact to a minimum.
As we prepare for the market to re-open, we are now offering viewing, valuation and mortgage services digitally....
We have invested in the latest technology from the United States to create stunning virtual tours of the homes we sell.
Our Matterport cameras can scan every inch of a room in just a few seconds, creating a 3D simulation that you can walk through using your phone, tablet or computer.
These tours allow buyers to get a real feel for a property without physically entering it, helping sellers to minimise contact with other households.
We have also now launched virtual valuations, which allow our experienced property experts to assess the value of your home without visiting in-person.
Using video call technology, sellers can walk our agents through their home so that we can accurately predict what your home is likely to achieve on the open market
This is the only way homes can be valued at present, although physical valuations will return in the next phase of the Scottish Government's route map out of lockdown.
Our mortgage advisers are also using video technology to fully resume operations and offer consultations.
Our advisers offer free whole-of-market mortgage advice to find the best deal for our clients - so if you're thinking of moving, speak to us first.
