The stunning landscapes taken by Lakeland drone videography may instantly make you want to buy a new home, but the surroundings are not the only things that matter.
When you cannot visit a potential new home in person, the real estate agent can send you videos or even livestream it. This will give you an idea of how much the property is worth to you and what you’re willing to spend on it.
The funny thing is that we can get so lost at the stunning façade of the house that we forget we will spend most of our time indoors. A real estate agent can give you a virtual tour of the house, thanks largely to our ability to do a live stream no matter what part of the world we are in.
If you are depending on a video alone when deciding to purchase a property, the best advice we can give you is to never be satisfied with what the agent wants you to see.
Ask to See Imperfections
Instead, ask point-blank questions about the condition and state of the home—for secondhand homebuyers, of course. Ask the agent to show the imperfections of the house to you such as chipping paint and a collapsed beam.
Even if the house looks gorgeous from the outside, what’s inside truly matters. This is where you and the family will be spending your time. You should be all comfortable inside your house.
Go From Room-to-room
You cannot buy a property based only on what you see on the outside. When an agent offers to show you the property via a video call or live stream, ask to see every room.
Focus on the ceiling and the baseboard because these are were the imperfections will mostly appear. See to it that you have visited every room in the house, including the attic and the basement. These two rooms will indicate how well-maintained the property is.
Do Not Get Amazed Too Easily
The fact that your agent is using Lakeland drone videography is enough to wow you already. That’s a given. But don’t be easily amazed by what you see on the video.
Remember that these video productions are made to sell a piece of property to you. If you focus on the visuals rather than the content, you will easily be hoodwinked out of making a clear and fact-based decision.
