Why Adam likes to ask listing agents/sellers about video/pictures prior to showings

Updated: May 3

Put simply, even when a Matterport 3D tour of a property interior & exterior is available, no listing will ever have pictures covering every surface, whether you're looking under a sink, in a crawl space, in an attic, at a label to see the model number and other information (my most common picture in showings), whether there is some sort of change since the original photos, video a dripping pipe to send to a listing agent that likely doesn't know about it, look at an area not possible to view with your eye directly due to a difficult space (i.e. window above eye level on a locked shed w/ no key present), etc. In addition, I often work with buyers on sight-unseen purchases & sometimes represent buyers who waive a home inspection where time is of the essence in a relatively brief showing.

For a more detailed explanation, see below:

5. Why ask in advance? Buyers in many cases don't request pictures prior.

6. How pictures/videos by me/buyers can benefit sellers/listing agents

7. How recorded pictures/videos by me/buyers can benefit sellers/listing agents
