With the development of COVID-19, it has been a worrisome and uncertain time for the whole world, with many businesses wondering how they will hold up. For us in the home-building and architecture industry, it should be a comfort to know that the FHBA and the NAHB are doing everything they can to inform and protect the residential and construction family. We at Artistic Visions want to help by reminding you that while everyone is staying safe at home, now is the time to implement 3D home tour options and other homebuilder digital sales solutions.
NAHB has informative articles with updates on the market, and is also keeping us in tune with their correspondence and requests to the White House. (For example, one particularly helpful article tells how to accommodate for the rise in supply chain costs.) In an article from March 17th, NAHB reported results from their Housing Market Index, done in conjunction with Wells Fargo, which said that builder confidence fell two points, while sentiment levels have stayed constant. Sales expectations dropped four points, due to economic uncertainty. NAHB further reports a drop in current sales conditions, sales expectations in the next 6 months, and traffic of prospective buyers.
With this uncertainty comes the expectation of a decrease in construction jobs in the coming months. While Pennsylvania is the only state so far that has not exempted construction in its state order to close all businesses, there is still the possibility in other states/cities of less workers showing up because of paused transportation, children at home, or simply for safety reasons. Further, during this time there will be a drop in prospective buyers. As people stay home and companies close down, less and less clients will be coming into your sales room to look at potential homes.
While we trust that our country will bounce back from this crisis as virus cases go down and, hopefully, a cure is found, meanwhile the homebuilding and architecture industry should make some changes in order to stay afloat. Now that both you and your clients are stuck at home, you both will probably be spending a lot of time on your computer: you continuing your business, and your clients surfing the web. Now is the time to come up with a homebuilder digital sales solution and implementthe use of 3d virtual tours.
In the National Association of Realtor’s 2019 Profile of Homebuyers and Sellers, they reported that for 44% of recent homebuyers, their first step was to look online for available properties. If this report was taken before the coronavirus pandemic, think of how much it must have increased now that everyone is at home. For all those potential clients continuing their new home search online, your website is now going to be the deciding factor that will make it or break it with these buyers.
This drone integrated animated video shows an exterior to interior 3d home tour. Many builders & developers use these on a normal basis for pre-construction sales, however with stay at home orders during COVID-19, these types of visuals become crucial for all sales.
Even though most of our team here at Artistic Visions is working remotely, we are still at full capacity to be able to meet your rendering needs. While everyone is at home, now is the perfect time to order visuals. Here’s why:
More website traffic
During this time, your potential clients will be more focused on your website. This is why it’s important to keep your website up to date with fresh, stunning images of your work, so that they will stay interested in your company and if not contact you now, contact you as soon as the country gets back on its feet again.
For you interior designers or remodelers, if your client had a project that is now slowing down or has completely ceased, you can keep them happy by showing them visuals of the final product. Providing your client with an interior or exterior rendering of their current project will A) let them know that their project is still important to you and that you haven’t neglected them and B) get them more excited about the project.
20% Off Discount
The final reason you should order visuals is that Artistic Visions is offering a 20% off discount on all visuals. We know this may be a difficult time for your company, and we want to help ease the load in any way we can. Plus, we want to give you incentive because we know the power visuals have on increasing client satisfaction.
Overall, since everyone is at home surfing the web, it is important to have a fresh, up to date website. Other than having excellent visuals, another way to stay up to date is to order our online sales solution, AVWave Interactive Solutions. It seamlessly integrates into your website and is an excellent way to allow your clients to view and personalize homes, even ones that aren’t built yet!
