On Thursday of last week, the nation’s leading online brokerage – Redfin® published a news release that they have experienced a 500% increase in requests to agent-led video home tours. This was up from 80% the prior week. As a result of business restrictions related to COVID-19, 1 out of 5 requests by consumers on Redfin.com is to have an agent at the house and provide the consumer with a live or recorded tour of the house. Redfin launched this program on March 3rd.
Delta Media, just launched DeltaNET 6 at the Leading RE conference last month and moved quickly to deliver a similar, high quality lead generation and customer engagement tool for brokers and agents on their platforms. “Our customer’s ability to continue conducting business as we work through COVID-19 is our number one priority,” says Michael Minard, CEO, and owner of Delta Media. “It is our job to help them seamlessly navigate the hurdles they are facing.”
The Virtual Open House feature allows consumers to schedule these virtual showings just as they would an in-person showing. Moreover, if there are other firms offering Virtual Open Houses as indicated in the MLS data feed, they will incorporate that on IDX listings. Delta Media has integrated this feature across all 350 MLS markets covering 93% of all listings in America.
Delta Media also extended support for this feature across modules that reside in the platform including Open House Search, Market Watch Reports, New Listing Emails, Lead Management platform, Ad Wizard, email marketing platform, and their Automated Facebook marketing platform.
