Virtual Tours in Real Estate: What Is It And What Does It Do?
Undoubtedly virtual reality is emerging as a powerful tool in many industries, such as education, training, healthcare, marketing, gaming, film and so on. Real estate is also amongst these applications. Over the years some large companies have already provided customers with VR tours in houses for selecting homes without going to different places or to know what they will get before houses are actually constructed.
“Shop for luxury homes in virtual reality”
It was reported that in 2015 the virtual reality marketing as a new showcase had been adopted by Matthew Hood Real Estate Group at Sotheby’s International Realty, multi-million dollar homes based in Los Angeles, as well as luxury residences in the Hamptons and in New York City could be toured via the Samsung Gear VR. Firstly the real estate agent tried filming 360-degree video of homes using a stationary camera set-up with 10 GoPro cameras, however, obviously the 3D type can provide home buyers with the better experience, for its allowing of walking through a house inside with a hand controller for navigation. The virtual reality technology lets Hood Real Estate Group show different homes from across the country or even across the world.
“Virtually discover your home”
A website sothebysrealty also provides a 3D and virtual reality tour to immerse buyers in luxury homes around the world. People can experience the homes online like they were in the houses, using the 360-degree perspective to explore the whole space, or take the advantage of virtual reality tour through mobile devices no matter iPhone or Android cell phones paired with VR headsets. VR videos about different types of housing can be prepared early for customers, then this can save much time and energy for both home buyers and house agents to discover a suitable home.
“Revolutionizing real estate with virtual reality”
Australia’s first immersive virtual reality experience for real estate had been launched by Start VR, in line with New Sydney apartment selling. The EDGE 28, a VR App specially developed by Start VR, uses the virtual reality technology, allowing prospective buyers to experience the Sydney apartment development before its starting of construction. By incorporating high-quality computer generated architectural and combining these with drone photography, Start VR allows buyers to sit in the apartment and see the actual view, and what they see will be what they will get.
