Traditional property viewings are still vital when it comes to finding the right house. However, making these arrangements can be tricky and complicated, juggling work and home life commitments, or simply finding enough time if moving into a new area and traveling some distance.

Booking a Remote Viewing Tour puts YOU firmly in control. Arrange a day and time that is convenient for you to “look around” and I will be at the property at the appointed time to walk you around the house using WhatsApp or Facetime. The Viewing Tour can be as quick or as long as you like, making sure you have a good look round, focussing on the rooms that are important to you. This will hopefully help you decide to arrange an in person viewing at a later date.


If you are thinking of moving and have yet to put your house on the market, or if you are on with another estate agent and have yet to find a buyer, I would welcome the opportunity of sharing my 30 years of estate agency experience with you. Please call Gavin Human for a free, confidential valuation and marketing review with no obligation.
