Top tips for pre-recorded viewings


Pre-recorded video viewings are a fantastic way to generate interest from potential tenants, and it couldn’t be easier – all you need is a smartphone to upload these onto the Lettingweb portal! 

These video viewings will allow potential tenants to view and register interest from the comfort of their own homes.

But what should you consider when recording a viewing? We’ve set out some tips below to help you.

  • Think about the main features first.

Do a walk through and familiarise yourself with the property. Make a note of all the key points before filming. A good place to start would be the key features section of the property particulars, noting all of these so that you don’t forget any.

  • Make a list of questions tenants mostly ask during your viewings. 

Treat the virtual viewing as you would any real viewing and think about all the questions you are asked. Make sure you answer all questions that people viewing the property would normally ask, however trivial.

  • Utilities and Council tax

Tell the prospective tenant about the EPC rating and what it indicates the utilities are likely to cost. You might also want to talk about the Council tax band and what this equates to in terms of cost.

  • Transport links and schools

Commuters will want to know where the nearest bus stop or train station is in relation to the property. It’s also useful to let viewers know the nearest motorways etc. 

Likewise, it’s important for families with children to know where the nearest schools are, so it’s worth including this in your video.
