In response to restrictions (either from local or state government, or from your MLS) that are in place in much of the country due to the Coronavirus threat, Ylopo has added more virtual tools to your home search site.
Virtual Tour Searches and Amenities: We have have enhanced the search functionality to include the ability to search by virtual tour. From the search page, there is now a featured icon in the "featured amenities" section that is specific to virtual tours.
Searching by virtual tour will produce a list of all properties with virtual tours available in that search area.
On the listing details page, we have added a banner at the top of a listing photo that indicates if it has a virtual tour. Consumers will be able to click on this button and the virtual tour will open in a separate tab on their browser.
We have also made the virtual tour the first section for "additional home features" on each property. When someone clicks on this link they will be taken to a new tab with the virtual tour.
Virtual Open House: this will replace the in-person open house information that was previously displayed. The language will now read: "Please confirm with listing agent if this is a virtual open house or an in person one."
Schedule a Private Virtual Tour button: this allows a lead to specifically request a virtual tour of a property, and that request will be sent directly to your CRM. Ylopo is releasing tools to help you provide this service, including a Virtual Home Buying Program page on your Branded Site, and a Virtual Home Buying Tour tool in Mission Control.
Here is a preview of the changes to the Home Search site:
