Fieldspace using tech to innovate property sale process

Apr 18 2017 16:03

Johannesburg - Fieldspace Property Group believes the local property industry has not yet made full use of current technological capabilities.

According to Fieldspace, one of the most difficult tasks for a broker is taking a potential client into a space and convincing them that it will meet their unique requirements.

"We are giving brokers the opportunity to show their clients a view of a fully refurbished space using the latest virtual reality technology. All the broker needs to do is to spark an idea in their client’s mind that will enable them to imagine the possibilities in the spaces we have to offer," explains Fieldspace.

It has also launched a broker concierge service and for those who prefer to avoid the commute, 360 degree tours of certain Fieldspace properties are available on its website. This gives potential tenants the ability to experience a virtual tour of the premises without commuting to the actual building.

"This is common practice in the residential market overseas. However, the South African commercial property market has not yet capitalised on this functionality until today," says Scott Field, CEO of Fieldspace Property Group.

“We constantly strive to improve our offering and give potential tenants everything they need to assist them in the decision-making process. We understand that it’s hard to visualise your perfect space when looking at an empty shell, and we want to assist with that process as much as possible.”
