Bronx Homes for Sale: Getting the Most Out of Your Virtual Tour

One year ago, carefree real estate buyers were spending their Saturdays dropping in on open houses to get an in-person feel for homes on the market.

Let’s fast-forward to today. With COVID-19 still dominating news headlines in the Bronx, open houses are a no-go. Our clients are checking out Bronx homes for sale in a very different way: the virtual tour.

A virtual tour will never replace an open house, but some of them come pretty close! You can’t beat the convenience of a virtual tour. Imagine being able to view a property at any time of day. You can even show up to your virtual tour in your bathrobe! How’s that for convenience?

Savvy buyers use virtual tours to determine which properties they want to put on their private showing list. Here are a few ways to get the most out of your virtual tours of Bronx homes for sale:

  • Know what you want ahead of time.
    Do you need three bedrooms? Do you adore the look and function of hardwood floors? Know what you want and search for these specific features as you tour Bronx homes for sale virtually.
  • Understand the dimensions.
    Size is critical, especially in the Bronx. If one of the bedrooms in a two-bedroom home would make a better closet, you’ll need to know that! Print a floorplan that lists room dimensions before your tour to understand the space that the home offers and to stay oriented during the tour.
  • Take notes.
    As you take your virtual tour, jot down notes, ideas and questions. These will come in handy if you decide that the property is worth a private showing.
  • Look outside.
    Pay attention to parts of the tour that include the front entrance, yard or street. If you are doing a live tour, ask the agent to show you these areas. You’ll get a better feel for privacy, traffic and general curb appeal of the home.
