HomeShare™ Virtual Showings present your properties in a way that many people are already familiar with, TV like presentation. The HomeShare™ Virtual Showings mimic walking through the home, allowing the viewer to either rule in or rule out the property. This helps you spend your limited time and money with prospects that have already become interested in the property. Compared to print ads, mailings, and brochures, HomeShare™ Virtual Showings are a lot less expensive and can generate leads for you that have already selected themselves as being interested in the property.
When it all Starts

When to use Sign in
Note that disabling the sign in will allow anonymous viewing of the home in high quality. Many homeowners still occupy the home, may have small children living there, and are very sensitive about strangers on the Internet snooping their home. And you won’t get leads, just exposure. Make this decision carefully.
In the time period between first listing on MLS and first open house, the property is fresh to the market. Many people use daily email updates to learn about these new listings, so this is prime time for leads. Be sure to get your HomeShare™ Virtual Showing and MLS listing online in the same day and early in the week to maximize your benefits from daily updates while the property is fresh. Be sure to have sign in enabled.
After a few weeks, if the property has not sold, you may want to disable sign in, with the owner’s support, and try to drive general exposure. But you know you have a problem and the property is no longer fresh. Use the ratings and the level of hits to gather information in any presentation to your homeowner about changing strategy. If you have no leads on this one, but others are doing well, possibly there is a price problem, lack of curb appeal, or other problem where you, as a licensed professional, can propose a course of action. You can easily edit your HomeShare™ Virtual Showing to reflect changes and in seconds be online with the new information.
