It's possible you are a very busy person who doesn't have a lot of time to go house hunting but you still need to buy a new home. It's also possible that you have health or mobility problems that make it difficult to go in person to search for a house. These are all good reasons why you could choose to hire an agent that uses digital real estate services.
While they can still use the traditional methods and this is often a good idea, more agents are using digital means to help you get your home. Here are just a few reasons why.
More Flexible Access To An Agent
If you are a busy person, you may not be available to speak with your agent during their office hours, or when they are between clients. This is when an agent can use their real estate services in a digital way. You can have flexible access to your agent whenever you are free to speak with them. Agents tend to work at almost any given hour of the day, so if you are only available in the early morning or later in the evening, you can speak with your agent remotely.
Also, it's easier to meet with the home seller using a virtual meeting platform like Zoom or Google Meetings at times that is convenient for you both. This also takes the stress of having to be ready for potential buyers and their agents to come by constantly for the seller too. They can meet with you online instead.
Easier Home Showings
It's not always possible to go to the house to see it in person when it's convenient for the homeowner. When you hire an agent to provide real estate services, they could tour the home for you and live-stream the tour so you can view it in real-time along with them. This allows you to still ask questions of the owner or agent while you are viewing the home.
An agent can also use digital means to record the home plus take pictures of the property, and send you the link to the video, or email you the video and pictures so you see the home when you have the time. You can then email or private message your questions to your agent so they can find out the answers. It takes the stress out of showings for both you and the seller.
