What is a Virtual Tour?

A virtual tour is a set of panoramic images that offer a 360-degree view of the surroundings. It has been around for a while, and it has seen a lot of improvements in recent years.
Some people might think that virtual tours are just “virtual reality tours” or you can call them “VR tours”. But that is not the case. A VR tour is just one type of virtual tour. The other types are 3D models, panoramic images, and even interactive videos.

The world has evolved in many ways. One of the most significant transformations is how people buy and sell their homes. The homes are no longer just for living in, they are also investments that can provide financial security. It’s no longer just about the neighborhood, schools, and commute to work – there are now so many other factors that buyers might consider when deciding if they want to purchase a home.

A lot of things have changed in this modern-day real estate world, but one thing has remained the same: people still want to get a good feeling of what it would be like to live there before making an offer on a home. This is where virtual home tours come into play – these tours enable potential buyers to virtually walk through properties before committing to buy them.

Why the Increasing Popularity of Virtual Tours in Real Estate?

The virtual tour has become an essential part of any agent’s or real estate company’s marketing strategy because it gives potential buyers an immersive experience of living in the property. Likewise, with the increased popularity of ‘Sell By Owner Portals’ enabling owner sellers to sell without an agent– our Interactive Open Home Tour is a perfect tool to showcase a sale-by-owner property to prospective buyers.

Virtual tours are a great way to show off the property in more detail than just photographs or an agent walk-through video. They allow potential buyers to interact at their own pace, imagine themselves living there as they go from room to room, and also how good the interior design is. 

They are also a great way to generate interest among those buyers that are unable to make it out for in-person viewing. In the current hot market and covid-19 restrictions, we’ve seen numerous buyers go to contact to secure a property, pending a physical inspection once they are able to attend at their earliest convenience.

The technology transforms a regular property listing into breathtaking virtual reality, giving potential buyers the opportunity to explore it thoroughly online before deciding to buy. Property seekers spend more time looking at listings with a 3D Tour than those without one.

Virtual Tours Create an Instant Sense of Ownership in Emotional Buyers— they also give potential buyers a really clear look at all the features of a property meaning that they don’t have to spend extra time or money to go see every house in person. An emotional buyer is more likely to pay a premium price for a property in comparison to an investor or the more typical logical buyer.

– Make sure that you have high-quality images and videos of the property.

A study from Australia found that homes with virtual tours sold about 6% faster and sold for 3% more compared to similar listings without virtual tours. Studies have also shown that the use of virtual technology for real estate has had positive results. People stay 5–10 times longer on real estate websites with virtual tours. The more engaged they are, the higher chances of converting them into paying clients. It’s a win-win for everybody!
