In today’s digital age, it’s become easier and easier to search online for homes that meet your every criteria, from lot size and square footage to siding and flooring types. At beverly-hanks.com, we make your home search more convenient still by providing you with extensive community information, expanded property features, and a market research center—all available without ever leaving our listing page.
Now, with health and safety top of mind, the real estate market has adjusted to a world of even fewer in-person interactions and property showings. Video has fast become an important tool to help you safely tour homes from the comfort of your own sofa. These tours can serve as digital substitutes for in-person walkthroughs and open houses until you’re confident you’ve found a winner.
We know you want to inspect every nook and cranny of a home before you commit. That’s why we provide digital tours for many of our listings. Those digital tours come in four flavors:
- Virtual Showings
- Property Highlights

- Matterport 3D Tours
