 When you’re looking for a house over the internet or leafing through agents particulars, what do you look for first? Pictures tell a thousand words or so they say, agents descriptions are often full of superlatives but a good old fashioned floor plan answers most questions with one glance.

New Homes companies have been using floorplans to successfully showcase their homes for over a decade yet many estate agents have only recently started to use them with any degree of frequency. In fact, research by Metropix recently concluded that only 51 per cent of available properties now include a plan.

Why is this? Estate agents are a famously old fashioned breed, leery of new technology at the best of times but buyers love floorplans – to the extent that a Rightmove 2009 study showed properties incorporating plans attracted up to 30% more interest than those without. We can all think of reasons why – does the kitchen overlook the garden so you can see the kids playing when you’re cooking or could you knock through the sitting room into the dining room to create that sought after open plan space?

If you’re a fan of plans, welcome to the new generation of marketing. At Madison Oakley, we are proud to announce our properties not only benefit from classic plans for every home (regardless of price or size of property) but now also enjoy interactive floorplans with inbuilt pictures (via Rightmove or available on this site shortly). If you’ve ever wondered where the photo was taken from or what exactly you’re looking at, our technology shows you in an instant. Click on our interactive plan and you’ll see camera icons in rooms, then;

  • Hovering the mouse over an icon displays a thumbnail view
  • Clicking the icon opens a full-sized photo
  • Room-by-room, viewers get a real "picture" of the property
  • On a separate tab - a full-screen, high resolution, slide show with text additions displays all pictures associated with the plan
What better way to show off the interior of the house to best advantage? No more flicking between windows on websites – this technology marries pictures and plans seamlessly, saving time and effort for buyers straight away.
