Virtual housing support
September 15th, 2021
We have always had it in our service portfolio – the virtual housing support. Mostly favored by the young professional who did not want to spend much time on the home search or save money for temporary accommodation and preferred to have an apartment in place upon the date of his arrival.
With Corona however, things have changed. During the first and second peak of the Corona waves last year, people did not want to go house hunting and avoided physical contact with other people as far as possible.
That’s where we stepped in by offering our virtual housing support. Based on the search criteria provided, we make a selection of suitable properties form which the clients can select their favorite ones for which we then arrange a virtual viewing via face time – or, if the client is not available during the scheduled appointment due to different time zones, we take photos and make a video which we send with our comments.
Now, despite the entry ban having been lifted for most of the countries and regulations having eased up considerably, quite a few of our clients still find them themselves in the situation of having to self-isolate to comply with the Dutch quarantine regulations. Also for the clients in quarantine virtual housing tours are a useful tool to make up for the time lost and secure a property as soon as possible after their arrival.
With Corona, our virtual housing support has gained in importance and popularity among wider circles of our clients.
We are pleased to be able to offer this service to our clients to speed up the home search for them.
