Thought it'd be fun to chortle at some of the horrendous attempts to sell houses using virtual viewing.

The exposed pipe work in the need to be ripped out bathroom  and corrugated roof of the factory behind had me drooling on the first one. 

The old hipster opening the door did feel a bit 1970`s smut video to me.

In the first video is the old hipster the seller or agent? He says my crib so that implies the former, but then he’s doesn’t know if the dishwasher is staying? Just wtf is he wearing ?

His mrs is being sold with the house ?

500k for that!?  Depressing people are prepared to pay so much for so little.  Tbe CGI in the video should seal the deal though ?

So I'm considering spending a fair chunk on a property... And the EA wants me to trust them to provide a fair, complete and unbiased video of that property? Are they mad? They could skip over dodgy bits, mute the sound of roads/trains, avoid the smell of damp. Nuts.

Likely they'll have zero screen suitability so a good opportunity for Alexei Sayle to make a comeback as Mr Belovski.

Ahh, that takes me back a few years.  My dear, now departed Dad would always shout "Hello Boys" in a Jerzei Belowski voice when he came in from work.  Never got old.

That was absolutely horrendous, my ears hurt, what did they think that music added!? and the sparkle things? wtf.

And film in landscape! did they not upload it and wonder why it's all a vertical slot, honestly a 10 year old could do a better job.

I used to rent a flat with an identical layout to that. The only difference was that his "bedroom" was my living room, and I slept in the second bedroom. Kitchen and bathroom much the same.

His combined "open plan" LDK* was dreadful - a kitchen with a sofa in it.

*living-dining-kitchen - a Japanese acronym for their cramped apartments, but I think it's about time to start using in the UK.

This is the correct layout for these Victorian conversions. They are 1 beds. Squeezing a 2 bed in there is cramped with no social space. 

The key problem with the bedroom at the front is the wheelie bins directly outside the window. It will get very annoying very fast when the upstairs flat (and basement in some conversions) access their bin at 6am each morning. From experience, I can confirm that the falling lid is exceptionally loud.

Waking to a thud each morning is not an experience i'd pay 0.5 mil for. And, and. it's in Acton! Oh sorry, i mean 'W3'!

Virtual Viewing

Estate agent’s virtual viewings a hit with Aberdeen buyers

An Aberdeen estate agent has found a way to work around the Covid-19 lockdown – by offering virtual viewings.

And within 48 hours of Aberdein Considine launching the initiative, an offer was made on a property in Bucksburn which has now been accepted.

The firm has used technology from the United States to create the virtual tours of homes it is selling.

Its Matterport cameras are used to scan every inch of a room in a matter of seconds and create a 3D simulation enabling prospective buyers and interested parties to stroll through the home from the comfort and safety of their own using a phone, tablet or computer.

And within two days of the launch of the technology, the first property to utilise the scheme, 14 Mill Drive in Bucksburn, Aberdeen, went under offer.

The walk through and video attracted around 6,000 views in 48 hours and an offer was quickly submitted for the two-bedroom property, which has now been accepted.

This kind of virtual viewing is the way to go.
