Mark Middleton’s Virtual Tour Success Story

By Alyssa Morrison |

When you know, you know.

Many buyers will say that their new home just gave them that feeling—when they caught a glimpse of the front yard, when they took a look inside, when they saw themselves living somewhere new.

Sometimes, however, you don’t get to make the judgment from inside the house. In a recent sale by Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty global real estate advisor Mark Middleton, the buyers decided the home was right for them after a two-hour FaceTime tour of the property.

“The buyers were in remote Alaska,” explains Mark. “I did the FaceTime tour with them the day before we made the offer. It’s a classic Bainbridge property with an incredibly unique dock complex. It’s a one-of-a-kind, magical property—built by a world-renowned naval architect Ed Monk Sr.”

Mark wasn’t only working with clients who were making an offer from afar. Once the offer was written, Mark contacted the listing agent who was about to board a plane in South Africa. Ready to negotiate, Mark and the listing agent got the deal under contract in an hour.

While taking an in-person, thorough tour of a home for sale can help you decide if it’s your next address, that’s not always possible. Whether it’s a client who is buying from afar or if life just makes seeing a home in person more complicated, Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty brokers like Mark offer intelligent solutions so you don’t miss an opportunity.

And by the way, this opportunity did move quickly. After going under contract, the home sale closed in just 10 days. Congratulations to Mark and his clients!
