Popular in the real estate industry, virtual home tours are 360° virtual tours of a home, essentially put for sale, rental, or buying. Gone are the days when one needed to go house to house, hunting for a dream home. Now real estate agents can bring the experience to your doorstep with a 360° virtual home tour or a 3D house tour.
A virtual tour is a series of panoramic images stitched together using VR software to create a virtual experience of any location. Whereas, a 3D house tour requires building a 3D simulation of the home. The buyer or customer can digitally walk through and inspect the home up for grabs. Not only are they cost-effective, but help save time and money that goes into house hunting. Further such gamified experience also helps the real estate company or agent to market their property option in a much more engaging way, garnering more attention from prospective buyers.
Further, the homebuyers or people looking for rentals no longer have to queue up for their visit, while being able to visit multiple homes at different locations in a matter of seconds.
