How we help Plymouth sellers reach house-hunters across the world


Gone are the days where you could only market your home locally to people in Plymouth and the surrounding areas.

Now, thanks to our YouTube channel, Lang Town & Country is able to reach house-hunters right across the world.

The Covid-19 lockdown has presented estate agents in Plymouth with a unique set of challenges when it comes to marketing houses.

During the past 12 months, we have seen people’s tastes change when it comes to properties.

Some need a home office for work, others want a larger garden, and many are looking to relocate to be closer to loved ones.

As restrictions begin to ease, the world left behind in the aftermath of coronavirus pandemic is likely to be hugely different.

What steps has Lang Town & Country put in place?

Individuals and businesses throughout the UK are constantly evolving to adapt to these changes, and we estate agents are no different.

While lockdown restrictions initially made things more difficult, there are many positives to come from this experience.

Undoubtedly one of the most successful steps we have implemented since last March is our virtual tours.

By posting these short videos on our growing YouTube channel, they also allow us to reach people right across the world.

Here’s how our virtual tours are helping vendors in Plymouth and the surrounding areas.


What are our virtual property tours?

Here at Lang Town & Country, we’re constantly thinking of ways to help our clients sell their homes as quickly as possible.

The thought of moving right now may seem daunting, and you could be forgiven for reconsidering your new-home plans in 2021.

That’s why we’re so proud of our virtual tours, which allow you to get a feel of a property from the comfort of your own home.

And since implementing our virtual viewings in March 2020, we’ve enjoyed enormous success on behalf of our clients, while ensuring they feel safe and secure.

What’s more potential house-hunters can subscribe to our YouTube channel here for a sneak peek inside our newest properties.

How do our virtual property tours work?

When we visit your home, we will film a walkthrough video which we then add to our YouTube channel.

We don’t claim to be Steven Spielberg, but these short films are perfect for offering people a first look inside.

We also use our VIP Facebook group to market your home. This group already has more than 400 members and is growing by the day.

Paul Preen, Managing Director, says: “When instructions are received to market a property, we revisit to take the photos, floor-plan measurements etc.

“This then has to be prepared and sent back to the vendor for approval before we can start to advertise it online.

“The beauty of the video tours is that they are a true representation of the property and get uploaded to the YouTube channel instantly.”

How our virtual tours can help you sell your home

We’ve enjoyed tremendous success since launching our virtual tours service.

And we have sold a number of homes before they’ve even been listed on Rightmove and Zoopla.

More than 650 people have now subscribed to our YouTube channel.

Signing up to our channel is the best way to watch all of our guided property tours.

You’ll even receive a notification the moment we upload a new video.

We also utilise our social media channels, which allows us to showcase homes to a larger audience and gain maximum exposure for potential buyers.

Happy home

We can market your home on a global scale

Since January, our videos have been viewed more than 1,000 times by people in Hong Kong alone.

In fact, we’ve already sold two properties in Plymouth to people who currently live in the Chinese region.

We’ve also attracted viewers from the United States, Romania, Vietnam and Canada.

What we think of our virtual tours

Our MD, Paul Preen says: “Unlike some agents who advertise video tours, ours are just that – a virtual viewing that gives you a real feel of the property.

“We believe that the video tour has been a game-changer and represents the future of marketing properties.

“To see in advance what’s coming to the market before the usual property portals advertise them, simply subscribe to our YouTube channel. It’s free and you can book viewings as soon as you see the property.”
