Buying a Home? Spring Into Action – Right from Your Livingroom!
Spring a great time to shop for a new home and this year doesn’t have to be any different. Although this may not be the best time to go house to house, technology has made it easy to tour almost any house you are interested in seeing without leaving the comforts of your own home.
Instead of spending time and money driving from house to house, buyers can use our many online tools to narrow down the list of options and get a great first impression by viewing an Online Open House.
Many of our new Eastbrook Homes are easy to tour right on our website. Home buyers can take advantage of our built-in tools like virtual walkthroughs, interactive floorplans, and the Feature Gallery, as well as research the communities that best fit your lifestyle.
For example – visit the Home Plans page on EastbrookHomes.com and you’ll find a quick overview of each model. There, you’ll find enough information to eliminate designs with too many or too few bedrooms or bathrooms, or which do not have features you truly want, such as a first-floor owner’s suite.
Clicking on The Ivy floorplan will open a lot more details for people who wish to take a closer look. The available photographs and Home Brochure are a great place to start, but clicking on the 3D Virtual Tour will allow you to see the inside of the model as if you were actually walking through the house.
By moving the arrow to places you wish to stand and clicking on the floor, your virtual point of view will change as if you marched several places ahead and stopped. From each vantage point, hold down the mouse and drag to change your point of view.
For an even more immersive experience, look to the tools along the bottom of the 3D Virtual Tour page. You can even resize the tour to you get a full-screen walkthrough or use different options such as the measurement tool to ensure that big comfortable sectional couch will fit.
Speaking of that sectional, whether you already own one or it’s part of your future plans, our Interactive Floorplan tool will help you decide what features, options, and furnishings will fit in your selected floorplan.
Above the 3D Virtual Tour, you’ll find two more tabs, including the option to select the Interactive Floorplan. Once selected, click on Personalize this Home Plan to shift your focus. This view includes a column of tools which can help you personalize your selected home plan and see how everything from outlets, to fireplaces, to your intended furnishings will fit in the finished home.
Click on the Standard Options tab to turn on and off additional options throughout the home. One category down, Components allows you to drag and drop everything from light switches, to security cameras, to utility sinks wherever you would like to see them installed.
Slide down on more category and you can drag and drop different furnishings into your home plan. You can even change the measurements of each piece to fit your existing belongings and see how they will line up in each room.
Once you’ve completed your tour of the home plan and then created the perfectly crafted layout, look to the left side to print or save your choices to share with an Eastbrook team member.
When you are done with the virtual and interactive tools, you can slide further down the page to see which communities feature that home plan. If you already know where you’d like to build, you can quickly verify that your chosen home plan is an available option.
Choose from the wide variety of Eastbrook communities and see what each has to offer. Depending on your lifestyle, there is one that will fit your wants and needs. Whether you would like the option to play golf right in your own backyard, or wish to live on the beach, or have access to beautiful hiking trails, there is a community that was made for you.
Once they’ve chosen a home plan, most buyers will want to see the model they have chosen in person. However, it’s never been easier to tour a variety of home plans and locations and to narrow down your choices without leaving the comfort of your existing home.
Check out our virtual tools today and take part in an Online Open House. For more information, contact one of our Eastbrook team members and we’ll help you get the most out of your online experience. At Eastbrook Homes, we give you more home, and more ways to select a home, for your money.
