TechTools Tuesday: Cool Tools to Sell Homes
Prospective buyers who use the Internet to preview homes are often want to know what the homes are like on the inside. Photos and video tours can provide some information, but often it’s still hard for buyers to get a feel for room dimensions and home layout.
Two web 2.0 products now give prospective buyers that sense of space and dimension by allowing agents to include floorplans with their listing information.
Floorplanner lets agents create and share interactive 2-D or 3-D floorplans. Using point-and-click, drag-and-drop tools, agents can easily create floorplans of their listings that can be saved, sent, printed, shared, or uploaded to their website. To get an idea of how it works, click and watch the video above or try the free demo on the company’s website.
The interactive floorplan tours offered by FloorPlanOnline® let prospective buyers see a floorplan of the home and then click on various spots on the floorplan to see a photo of that room. As they say themselves, “there’s no more guessing which photos go with which rooms.” The company offers several different products and levels of service. A self-service options, for example, lets agents submit their own photos and floorplan sketches which the company transforms into Internet and social media-ready floorplans with interactive tours. Or, FloorPlanOnline® can send a professional to the home to take the photos and sketch the layout.
