Overcoming Sales Avoidance with UTour Voice

By UTour Digital Media Team on Feb 25, 2021 12:15:52 PM

From seeking a digital-first experience for browsing new home plans to signing remote contracts, today’s new home buyer behavior is often boiled down to one driving attribute — sales avoidance. It’s how they prefer to shop for everything else, so why not a new home? Most buyers, and especially millennial homebuyers, do not want to go through a one-on-one siloed experience with a salesperson. They want instant access. They want convenience. They want transparency. That’s where UTour comes in, providing instant access to schedule and tour a home on their terms.

Your UTour Questions, Answered

By UTour Digital Media Team on Jan 15, 2021 9:41:01 AM

Chances are, if you’re in the homebuilding industry, the concept of self-guided tours has crossed your desk at some point in the last year. It might’ve gone by different names — unattended access, or maybe on-demand tours, but they all represent the ability to provide your shoppers a way to schedule a tour online and then visit a community and tour their home of choice without having to interact with a salesperson first. It’s home touring on their command and on their time, and the data shows that it is an incredibly successful supplement to help builders bring more qualified, motivated home buyers to the table.

Toward the end of 2020, we held a webinar with our partners at BDX to answer all the questions we were receiving about how self-guided tours work. We wanted to provide access to the recording of this Q&A session for those who are just learning about UTour for the first time. If you’ve got 30 minutes, we couldn’t recommend it enough. Read on below to get a full picture of all the answers you’ll receive while watching the webinar.
