With the help of virtual reality, it has become possible for the buyers to visit the property or have a look at how the estate might look making it easy for not just the buyers but also for the sellers / real estate agents to show the house property at their convenience.
The old traditional method of buying and selling of property used to happen when the buyer and seller meets in person and visits the property. The process includes huge formalities from searching from ways to actually visiting the place. The buyer used to decide the area to shift in and then they contact the local real estate agents of the area and then take priop approval of the property seller for visit. The seller needs to be available for visit and accordingly the buyer and agents had to decide for the same. Also the agents and buyer needed to keep knowledge of the availability of keys of the flat / property, so as to avoid inconvenience.
