The way homes are sold has certainly changed in the past year with processes moving online and walkthrough tours going virtual when on-site appointments are not available or convenient.

However, despite these changes, buyers are quickly adapting and choosing to view and purchase via virtual means. To help, Kiper Homes put together its top steps to buying a new home virtually to ensure the process goes smoothly and successfully.

Secure Pre-Approval Online

No need to go into an office to get pre-approved for a new home. Kiper Homes believes the home financing process should be as easy and efficient as possible for its homebuyers. To protect the safety of everyone involved, the builder’s preferred financing resources allow homebuyers to get pre-approved for their new home and sort out other financial details online or over the phone.

Watch Online Videos

Want to learn more about a particular Kiper community or floor plan design? Head on over to the YouTube channel or Media Gallery. Both pages feature a variety of videos that truly highlight and capture the incredible lifestyle each Kiper community has to offer. Videos include photos from the community’s decorated model homes and area amenities as well as video testimonials from satisfied Kiper homeowners throughout the years.

Take a Virtual 3D Tour

The best way to envision life in a new home is by taking a walkthrough tour. While private on-site tours are available by appointment, it is encouraged that interested homebuyers also take advantage of the virtual walkthrough tours available on the Kiper website. Each floor plan page features a “3D Tour” to virtually explore each decorated model home. These Matterport tours capture the space in 3D to offer an immersive experience unlike any other, and homebuyers can virtually walk through each room, view the spaces from a variety of angles and even learn more about available features.

Schedule a Virtual  or Safe On-site Appointment

Decorated model homes are currently open by appointment only. Interested homebuyers who opt to explore new home options offsite can schedule a private virtual real-time tour over video call. Whatever way homebuyers choose to communicate and proceed through the homebuying process, the Kiper Homes team is happy to accommodate buying a new home virtually.
