Ethical Home Open - by Encore Property Group - Virtual Viewing Online

View our Ethical Standards Here

Representing property owners and buyers as well as landlords and tenants it is a challenging process.

We apply competency, fairness, and high integrity in our day to day operations.

The new technology available nowadays allows us to use our ethics even further! 

We are proud to be one of the first in Australia to offer to public Virtual Open Houses.

The old open house concept is not easy for any party involved. 

“It is amazing - a person needs more identification to hire a few dollars video than just go and wander around a house"

For house owners THERE ARE a few BIG DANGERS WITH OPEN INSPECTIONS. The most important is the security risk and damage the value of your home.

For  home hunters Open houses are also too time consuming. Open houses were a way for buyers to see as many properties as possible in one day and get to know a community.

Open houses are out-dated and necessary. Our clients are so relieved when we tell them they don't have to have strangers coming in off the street in order to sell their house! 

Encore Property Group is proud to introduce a new approach for HOME OPENS. 

A compelling new way to digitally engage home buyers or prospective tenants in real time. This Virtual Home Opens will allow viewers to interact through comments.

By conducting a Virtual Open house we can give interested parties a preview of properties they may not be willing to take the time to visit in person based on photos or descriptions alone or even videos. It will allow home buyers/prospective tenants to see raw, real footage of a home, not just images that have been “scrubbed and edited,” or a description that might be misleading.

Our Virtual Viewing Tours are fully interactive.  Our agent will show property LIVE, while walking you through and anyone can ask questions immediately.

They are not time consuming, you can view on your mobile phone, your computer, tablet or iPad from the comfort of your own home, or stop your car during travel and watch for a few minutes or even on the bus or train. Prospects can invite family or friends and watch together.

Our agent can also spend more time to show you areas of the property of interest over again. We are confident that our interactive tours online will attract more  internet savvy buyers who want to see the inside of property right from the comfort of their homes.

A much more convenient way to view any property.

The Internet may be the fastest way to find homes for sale/rent, but there’s nothing better than actually walking through a house and seeing it first hand.

Virtual Open House will meet that need. You can view, unedited video when it is happening and asking questions like you were there. Then of course you are able to schedule a real viewing by private inspection, if the house meets your criteria.

Most people agree that a home can’t be fully experienced or completely appreciated through pictures alone or videos alone. Virtual Online Tours is a great opportunity to see a property before you see it in person


For Sellers/Landlords
  • In the case of "Virtual Tours Online", buyers can be screened ahead of time to ensure that they are serious and trustworthy.
  • Inspections can be advertised to a wide audience and knowing in advance how many people will attend online viewing.
  • Buyers will love the convenience of seeing properties at a time which suits them and hence more exposure
  • When prospective buyers come by your home for a traditional showing, they often give you little notice beforehand - making it difficult and very inconvenient to making time.  It is more Secure and less time consuming.
  • You can schedule an Virtual Tours so it fits with your schedule. It makes your lifestyle a whole lot easier when you choose the time - you never have to struggle to make appointments with a few buyers at a time, at times that are inconvenient for you.
  • If a potential buyer has already saw your house advertised on Internet yet they don't have time or they are a bit far to visit , they will be able to attend no matter what they do and see home and ask questions. Pictures are great, videos are great but experiencing a home tells a bigger story. It's an added bonus that buyers can bring family and friends along to Interactive Tours and seek advice.
  • Your home gets more exposure as it is not confined to local area only. Anyone around Austrlia or even overseas can watch our Virtual Tours.
  • The recorded video can be watched over and over. That make it your home viewable 24/7.
  • In this way we can attract the maximum number of buyers/tenants.
For Buyers/Prospective Tenants

If you are a home buyer or looking for a rental, what would you rather do - meet an estate agent who shows you homes at a time convenient for you, OR, would you prefer to drive around inspecting open-houses at a time set by the agent?

  • The recorded video can be watched over and over 24/7 and you can invite family or friends to watch with you
  • You are not distracted by time limited viewing or other people attending and asking questions
