As a prospective buyer, I love virtual tours on websites and say "10" homes come up in a search, I do click the ones with tours 1st. My Wife also likes them because while nothing substitutes the real walk-thru, you can really "picture" the house.

Even when buying a house for investment purposes, I really appreciate the virtual tour feature. I feel that we Americans are a virtual consumer. SURE SURE SURE we like to go see the house, or kick the tires at a car dealer's showroom, but we love getting as MUCH info as we can beforehand. It's an information society. It's a "I want it now" consumer in my opinion.

If the house has some unique features to it, or certain rooms look really cozy or nice I'd go virtual. If it's vanilla, i'd not worry about it.

Good luck!!! Hope the sale does you right!
