I want to let Real Tour Vision know how much I enjoy being a virtual tour provider! I used to work with other methods of creating virtual tours and I wasn’t able to give my customers the total package that I wanted to. Today, that’s not the case. Real Tour Vision’s photo stitching software is truly superior and my customers are very satisfied with the results. My customers now have the professional appearance they need to stand out on the Internet. Plus the Real Tour Vision team continues to make improvements which helps my company stay ahead of the competition. Real Tour Vision virtual tours are by far the best on the market! Keep up the great work guys!

If you are a Realtor®, you are probably always looking for that edge over your competition. But you are only interested in marketing that works. The PanoRider™ provided by your Real Tour Vision virtual tour provider is just such a marketing tool.

The PanoRider is a custom sign rider that hangs off your broker’s sign. It contains a property specific web address for the property along with a full color panoramic photograph of the property. The web address is the same as the property address so it is easy to remember for prospective buyers and neighbors.

The Statistics

• The top scoring source of information for buyers is now the Internet, mentioned by 77% of all Home Buyers.*

• In addition, 71% of all Home Buyers surveyed, mentioned the yard sign as an important source of information. *

*National Association of Realtors® Home Buyer and Seller Survey 2006

A PanoRider combines the exposure of the Yard Sign with the power of the Internet. It drives prospective buyers to a 360 virtual tour of the property, even if no one is home to let them see the inside. The statistics support the need for every listing to have a PanoRider, regardless of market conditions. And the virtual tour contains your phone number, website and email, so you get the most exposure possible to secure an offer!

Property Specific Websites (

The web address on the PanoRider is for a property specific website for your listing. This website contains your full interactive 360 virtual tour with enhanced listing features including these options:

• Integrated Panoramic and Still Photos with Interactive Hot Spot Navigation

• Map, Satellite View and Driving Directions

• Mortgage Calculator

• Optional Music, Floor Plans & Brochure

Breaking News!!

Real Tour Vision has ARRIVED. After years of deprivation, struggle, and minor health problems we now purchase water from the Culligan Man.

It all started when Panorama Jack was having trouble with facial tics. He went to our company doctor, Dr. Damitol, and was told, “You have too much lead in your diet. You need to cut back.” So Jack started cleaning up his diet. No more snacking on paint chips, using lipstick, or licking children’s toys. Still his problems continued.

Jack decided it must be the water. But what to do? Coffee is essential to the wellbeing of Panorama Jack. Not one to be held back when confronted by an obstacle Panorama Jack did what any plucky, kick butt, virtual tour photographer/movie mogul/ladies man would do. He started making his coffee with 100% Florida orange juice. Do not try this at home. Or if you do, for the love of all that is good and green and wonderful, use PULP FREE juice. Yes, Panorama Jack had to buy a new coffee maker after that fiasco. But he also got a date and some great advice. Forget the juice and go back to water in the coffee maker.

So Jack mulled. He pondered. He wondered. He called his mom. She said, “You need the Culligan Man.” Jack didn’t waste any time. He dialed up the Culligan Man so fast his fingers were afire. He got the deluxe setup with hot and cold taps, and the pleasant glug glug of water now fills our offices. Once again Panorama Jack (and his mom) has saved the day! Jack’s facial tics are gone.

This new change has benefited the other employees too. The mood is lighter, we smile at one another, afternoon Tea is sweeter, the virtual tours are more beautiful, and life is GOOD.

In Shreveport and Bossier City virtual tours seem to be everywhere these days. Buyers are looking at them, sellers want them, realtors have them, but how effective are they really? Here are some statistics that may surprise you. According to a recent survey* conducted by the National Association of Realtors® 77% of all home buyers listed the internet as the most important source of information about a listing.

Statistics like this show us that buyers are shopping on the internet. And why not? They can view more homes in less time at their convenience by shopping online. And that’s not the end of the story. According to the NAR®, listings that have virtual tours are 88% more valuable than ones that don’t. Not to mention that states that the “virtual tour” feature is selected more than 100,000 times per day**.

Clearly, virtual tours are not just that new thing everybody is getting. They are becoming a necessary marketing tool. All virtual tours are not created equal. Everything from slide shows to 360 tours is being labeled as virtual tours. Some of these are high quality and some are not. But with 77% of all home buyers looking to the internet for information, at Ark-La-Tex Virtual Tours we strive to provide that information.

As an RTV provider we are able to effectively “show” the home with high quality, viewable photographs and panoramas that leave the viewer with a real sense of the property. Our virtual tours are able to provide all the information to the buyer that the Realtor would provide in person. Not just the price and square footage, but information about the neighborhood, the community and the features of the house itself.

We can offer the buyer a printable flyer to easily remember the property. We can give them a 3d floor plan of the home and a map to the property. We can even offer them a mortgage calculator, information about the area schools and community links. Thanks to RTV’s efforts to be the cutting edge of virtual tour technology, we can provide all the information a buyer is looking for and more.

So, how effective are virtual tours – really? According to recent statistics, they should allow the realtor’s listing to become 88% more valuable with 77% of the buyers. Very effective! And if a Realtor has a professional virtual tour company, such as an RTV full service provider, which can help them put that tour to work for them, the possibilities could transform the real estate market.

Thanks RTV!
