Why use video to first meet with prospective agents

with No Comments

Smart consumers interview potential real estate agents before deciding which agent to hire. Just as you are sizing up the potential for a good fit, rest assured that the real estate agent will likely be interviewing you, too. Be wary of agents who don't ask you questions and probe for your motivation. You wouldn't work with just any agent off the street, and good agents are just as selective about their clients, too. Not all real estate agents will welcome an opportunity to be interviewed and top agents likely don't want to fill out a survey, so try to limit your questions to only the most important for you and your needs. With people being so busy and the time it can take for both seller and agents to meet, it makes sense that initial discussions or interviews be held by video.

Interviews can be done from anywhere and at any time. Sellers can pose a list of questions to prospective agents and agents can respond to each question accordingly. Today’s most talented agents are busy and in demand. One of the best ways to do this is to use video as a first meeting, making it easier for you to connect in a non-committal way. This approach is convenient, which means time pressurized agents will be more likely to connect.

Multimedia enriched experience. This is often the most exciting and overlooked aspect of video interviewing, and the primary reason it should not just be seen as a second class citizen to face-to-face interviews. In fact, there are distinct benefits from having the interview occurring in cyberspace; that is, the interview becomes a live multimedia-enriched. The video interview can and should be a multi media enriched and, in some ways, an enhanced-first experience over that which can be achieved in a face-to-face interview. With expected advances in holographic imaging and augmented reality, one can only expect the video interview experience will be ever more crucial to the hiring process in the year to come.

The use of online video meetings provides a better first round screening and thereby increases the chances of selecting the best agent. With online meetings, it’s possible to base the first selection not just on CV (knowledge and experience), but also on the ‘soft skills’. By replacing the time-consuming meetings at the house for much faster first introductions via the webcam, there is time to review more agents.
