I recently took an extra step to help a new real estate client. An agent heard me speak at local real estate office in Lancaster, PA. He decided to try a virtual tour on a property that has been on the market awhile – it’s an older home, priced quite reasonably at $215K. Perhaps a lower priced property than most real estate agents order a virtual tour for in my market, but nevertheless I built a virtual tour for this 4 bedroom, 3 bath single home.

When I was finished and delivered the real estate virtual tour, I asked my new client/agent if he would like me to put a small ad on Craigslist for him. He immediately said, “yes.”. So I created a simple ad and placed one of our new “spinning” 360 Take the Virtual Tour buttons in the Craigslist ad.

That was Friday afternoon around 3. Within 48 hours, there were 83 hits to the virtual tour (the new traffic counter/stats report made it easy to see the results). I sent an email to my new client, and told him to look at the stats.

He was ecstatic! He said more people, via the virtual tour, had actually looked at the property than all the open houses he held. He also said that he expected an offer to be made on the property. That little button attracted people to the virtual tour. Creating the link for my client was just a simple HTML command.

As I write this blog entry, I see the results are currently 183 hits – of which 158 are direct from Craigslist. Not bad for a tiny ad with a spinning virtual tour button in a small, one county market here in the Amish country of southeast Pennsylvania.

I am a full service virtual tour provider in Belmar New Jersey and have been creating virtual tours for realtors in the Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex Counties for almost 4 years.

I’ve seen virtual tour companies open and close their doors and have been there to pick up the business. In this tough real estate market it’s important to be consistent and reliable and to offer a high quality product. Realtourvision’s superior 360 panorama software and support allow me to do my job and do what I love best…create the best virtual tours in the business!.

Recently a real estate agent dealing with exclusive multi million dollar properties viewed one of my tours on Realtor.com and I was able to secure a virtual tour for a 6 million dollar property! It was quite an operation and at the end of it I was treated out to a nice lunch. The other agents viewed the virtual home tour and have contacted me to photograph their exclusive listings. The referrals continue to come in.

2008 is promising to be the best year yet for 360realhometours! Thanks Real Tour Vision and all your wonderful staff to help allow me to create the best virtual tours in the business!!

Before I became a virtual tour provider in the Indianapolis area I was a bit nervous about beginning a new business venture. I did some research and made some phone calls and there was a virtual tour company that immediately stood head and shoulders above everyone else.

I decided to start Powerhouse Tours and I have been working with Real Tour Vision for about 2 months. It took me a month to get myself organized and trained and I have been providing virtual tours for about a month now. I am thrilled with the results. From my first phone call with my salesperson, to the continuing support I have received from the staff, I am convinced that I made the right choice.

One of my first tours was an estate property. I was able to take full advantage of all that Real Tour Vision had to offer and make this a standout tour. Using that 360 virtual tour as my sample I have made valuable contacts and sold many other virtual tours including more to the owner of the estate. I am going back to photograph the surrounding building lots so that they can be put on their website as well.

I am extremely happy with my decision and I feel that I am able to offer my clients a superior virtual tour and really showcase the houses in a way that both the sellers and realtors can appreciate. I have recently sold my fist “10 pack” of virtual tours and am steadily growing my business. I owe a big “Thanks” to the Real Tour Vision staff for giving me the tools and confidence I need to build this business into something great!
