Virtual tour iiiii Set Up a Virtual Showing with ShowingTime
When in-person showings are off the table, we enourage you to offer video showings using a video conferencing solution like FaceTime, Zoom, GoToMeeting, join.me or other similar tools. This type of showing requires an appointment, a request for feedback, tracking and reporting, and can be used with your ShowingTime account. Another way to easily communicate video showing details is through the messaging features. You can track all conversations and showing data in the same platform. If you have a document you want to share with agents that further explains how to access your video tour, you can attach them to a listing and they will be sent automatically when a showing is requested.
