I’m always looking for innovative ways to help people find their dream home on the Costa del Sol and when I discovered Smart Viewing, I knew that it was the perfect tool for every buyer who is “time poor’, as the current expression goes. So, let me tell you about how this ‘smart’ service works and how we can use it together – buyers, sellers and property finder –to ease the process of finding exactly the right property in Marbella, Estepona, Benahavís or any of the other residential areas on the beautiful Costa del Sol.
I’m sure many of you will have heard of ‘virtual tours’ and you may have looked at some. Smart Viewing takes the virtual tour to a whole new level and enables you to make more informed choices when you’re viewing a property overseas.
First of all, it eliminates the need to travel to southern Spain in person to search for properties and make a shortlist of your favourites. Experience shows us that this can be a time consuming approach to a property search. Similarly, only being able to view static images of a property doesn’t provide enough information and some buyers can be disappointed when they turn up for a viewing only to find that the area around the property, as well as the residence itself, isn’t what they had hoped for.
With Smart Viewing you can explore not just a property, but also the surrounding area as if you lived there. You will be able to see where it is located in relation to beaches, golf courses and other facilities, which play a very important role in your final decision.
But that’s not all. Once you’ve made a shortlist of properties that tick your wish list boxes, you can then book an interactive property viewing online with me. It is just as if we’d arrange to meet for a physical viewing where I would walk around the property with you, but now we can do it online. Plus, this means you can ask me questions about any aspect of the apartment, villa or townhouse and I can answer them in real time rather than have to answer your queries by email or via a phone call.
After that, we can arrange a physical viewing. But, as you can see, most of the groundwork has been done online without you having to travel here. All you have to do is book your online viewing by clicking on the ‘Online View’ button.
And, if you have a property to sell on the Costa del Sol, this service will increase your chances of a quicker and more efficient sale. Click on the ‘Book a Valuation’ button and I’ll be in touch to set up a Smart Viewing virtual tour of your home.
