LJ Hooker Ahead With Technology

With huge growth in technology throughout the world in the past ten years, not only is it hard to keep up with for our average users but even more difficult to get ahead and stand out from the crowd in an already busy space.
When it comes to real estate in a flourishing market, sellers are spending less time on the market and often questioning whether they should of waited for that mainland buyer that couldn’t view the house until tomorrow before accepting their offer.
LJ Hooker Launceston has stepped out from the crowd with a simple solution for the time poor buyers which can not view inside a property.

LJ Hooker Launceston is the first office to connect with buyers in a virtual reality world. To put it in a nut shell – imagine you are in Sydney and able to meet the agent of a property you are interested in buying in the living room of that property in Tasmania without leaving your apartment. This is where the world is heading and at LJ Hooker Launceston we are there and seeing some great results whilst saving a lot of buyers time.

Basically you can meet your agent in the property, discuss the features of the home whilst pointing them out throughout the tour of the home with out the buyer having to get on a plane to visit the property. It doesn’t get any simpler than that!!

This is great for buyers and even better for sellers in the property market to the point of buyers from all over the world being able to get a virtual tour with the agent and sellers not missing out on any potential buyers that may lack in time but looking to invest in property.

Whether you are intrigued and curious or simply want to experience taking a tour of a property from our office, simply call into 309 Invermay Road, Mowbray (LJ Hooker Launceston) and take a tour of a launceston property in virtual reality..
