The sales agents at O'Donnellan & Joyce auctioneers have been embracing new technology and working hard to bring you alternative ways of viewing properties. The team are currently filming all of their properties that are for sale and are vacant, in order to provide customers with virtual viewing tours.
The virtual viewing tours will come with a voice over commentary that gives a vivid description of the property, combined with the all of the attributes for each location.
According to Colm O'Donnellan this will give people the opportunity to view what O'Donnellan & Joyce has to offer without leaving the comfort of your own home - the virtual viewings allow people to remotely carry out viewings and guarantees the safety of both customers and staff.
With Covid19 confining many people to their own homes for long stretches, it gives them the opportunity to look at the suitability of their own home. Some may even consider at some time in the future when Covid-19 has passed to look at downsizing, and for others it maybe be a chance to upsize.
You can now see what is on offer in the current market and have a tour in private of each house from the comfort of your armchair.
Also if you wish to have your house valued free of charge, email the team at [email protected]. Provide them with the address of your property and a brief description and they will revert to you with an indicative value.
The company will endeavour to provide more virtual tours on all properties in the coming weeks.
In response to the current guidelines on social distancing due the Covid-19 restrictions – the company has made the decision to temporarily close its office on Mary Street. However, the firm remains fully operational across all aspects of the business, albeit remotely.
