Virtual tours through Real Estate
Interested parties can take part in virtual tours of several properties without the necessity of being there physically. This saves time for both the real estate agent and the customer. Interactive elements can be added to these virtual house tours, allowing the visitor to inspect the property in detail. For example, a customer can then open cupboards or switch between different rooms. More often than not, the overall ambience of a place is the major selling factor for customers. Virtual house tours have proven to be the perfect medium to interactively showcase stunning interiors from up close. This way, potential buyers are able to experience the feeling of ‘being there’ while immersing themselves in their surroundings before actually making a buying decision.
More and more companies in the real estate industry use the advantages of virtual reality even during the planning and conception stages. Potential customers can give feedback on projects in real-time or incorporate their own ideas. The result: the entire process from the first model to the finished product is simplified and personalized thanks to virtual tours.
It can be difficult for real estate agents or property owners to give the customer a first impression of a building if it is not yet built. Explaining a detailed construction project to potential buyers without visual aids is often an arduous task. With a virtual tour including 3D models, you cannot only visualize a concept of a building, but also let clients explore the premises beforehand. It is even possible to integrate CAD data to allow projects to be viewed from all angles when presenting real estate in virtual reality. The good news is: with the right platform, all this can be done with little effort and with no development skills whatsoever. Thanks to low equipment cost and next to no entry barriers, Virtual Reality as a means to visualize buildings is now a cost efficient tool for most homeowners.
