A showing is an opportunity for a buyer to determine if a home is right for them. Each of the different types of showing plays a valid and necessary role in marketing the home. Some buyers may start by looking at homes online, which can lead them to drive by the home to see if it still meets their interest before they schedule a showing.

Online showing: This is when a buyer looks at a home's listing online, including photos, videos, and a description. This can be a great way for buyers to get a general overview of a home and see if it is worth scheduling a showing.

Drive-by showing: This is when a buyer drives by a home to see it in person. This can be a good way for buyers to get a feel for the neighborhood and the surrounding area. It can also be helpful for buyers to see the home's size and layout from the outside.

In-person showing: This is when a buyer schedules a time to visit the home with a real estate agent. This is the best way for buyers to get a true sense of the home and see if it is right for them. Buyers can ask the real estate agent questions about the home and the neighborhood. They can also walk through the home and get a feel for the space.

Virtual Showing: Virtual Reality (VR) can be used to stage, remodel, or update a home for sale by creating realistic images of what the home could look like with different furniture, appliances, paint colors, countertops, or flooring.  By creating images of the home in different staging scenarios, the agent can show potential buyers the potential of the home and how it could be used.

Each one of these types of showings contributes to the marketing of a home.  By offering different types of showings, a seller can reach a wider audience of potential buyers and increase the chances of selling their home quickly.
