Other outdoor buildings

Some homes have a garage or summer house, a swimming pool or a separate terrace with a fireplace. All these buildings contribute to the total cost of the home and should be visited by potential buyers during the tour too. They will be able to see their condition and functionality.

Be careful with landscaping

 

Not all people enjoy taking care of lawns, bushes, flowers, so it is enough to give a general view of the area beside home and pay their attention to trees growing in the yard. It is possible to focus on their healthy look and possible benefit like shade on sunny days.

Focus on the benefits of drive- and walkways

 

Not all people enjoy removing snow from long driveways, but a real to can focus on its size from the beneficial side. This way takes people further from busy roads and noise as well as allows having pleasant strolls in the evening. They will provide kids with a lot of fun in winter and take care of the vehicle.

Look at the land

The state of porch and terrace

The state of porch and terrace

The first thing to show buyers is a general look of this home part. Then, you should focus on details including roofing and possible leaks, quality and condition of the deck, how well they are attached by grabbing and shaking the railing, etc.

Take a closer look at home sides

Look from an angle does not allow to see any cracks, damages and other deficiencies. Therefore, it is important to move a phone from the basement towards the roof to let viewers evaluate all possible problems. It is also a great way to see the state of windows, doors, trim and if they have spoilt, negotiate the price.

Tell about smell and sound

Since mobile devices still can not transfer smells and tastes, it is necessary to communicate your own feeling about it. There might be the smell of mold in wet areas or poor piping can produce another unbearable smell. If you feel the smell of flowers or any plant located nearby, you should say it. The same is with sounds. Wind and speech do not allow people to understand if this area is noisy and what they can expect living there. Therefore, any sounds you hear standing next to a home for sale should be explained to the potential buyers. Who knows, they may hate bird singing or ship sirens. 

As you can see, homes should be toured not only inside. All the details in the exterior should be evaluated too, so keep in mind these details and make your video tours more informative to satisfy your clients.
