“All Around” Virtual Tours show it all!
In my years of providing Virtual Tours I am glad to say that being an RTV full service provider works out best for our clients. That is what we are there for right? Rather than just taking a few shots of a home, hotel or establishment we take it a step further. For starters our clients don’t always have the time or want to deal with photography or better yet, the virtual tour software and post processing. We do this for them taking into consideration bringing out selling features of the property with images and 360 tours so that the buyers can get the “Big Picture.”
When I shoot a tour I always work with the Realtor walking around the property and inside the house asking for their input of what is important to them and their clients. Then I shoot the property so that the tour will show the property to it’s full potential. This has worked out best for all of us. It’s to the point now that some of my Realtors order a virtual tour they just open the door for me and let me “do my stuff” as I have been told.
Most the time while I am shooting a property the Realtor is on the phone. The other advantage for Realtors, is that they get to tell their customers that they use a professional photographer to photograph the home. When a Realtor gets a call from their client with rave reviews of how well the property is presented it’s a win win situation for all.
The biggest bonus 360 virtual tours provide is the increased exposure from local to long distance. Two instances here for example:
One property I did, I got a call from the Realtor that she got an offer on the house shortly after the tour was online. The second is when a husband was here who was relocating from another part of the country. He went to see the house in person while his wife and family viewed the home from the online virtual tour. No matter which way you look at it, virtual tours are the way to go.
