Virtual Tours and Beyond

Real estate agents have to stand out above their colleagues more than ever to retain and satisfy their clients by selling their property in a reasonable time frame. Homeowners are skeptical about which agents to hire and sign on the dotted line with. After all, a fairly big commission is being paid to that agent; the homeowners want to know that they are effectively getting their money’s worth by having their home marketed properly-in tune with today’s current online trends.

Scheduling a 360 virtual tour is the first step in gaining a great online presence. 360 tours are so economical when you see what you are getting. After all, with Real Tour Vision technology anyway, they stay online for two years and then you can still renew for another two if you choose to. Can you say that for your local newspaper? A solid one year ad in the paper for every house would cost you around three to four thousand dollars while a 360 virtual tour photographed by a professional will only cost around $100.00 for a full two years! A virtual tour costs nearly $.27 per day while an ad in the newspaper runs nearly $13.00-$15.00! With 85% of home shoppers starting their searches online I know where I would put my marketing dollars in 2008.

A professional virtual tour photography company is the way to go with virtual tours. Most Do-it-yourself kits don’t offer the bells and whistles, and your photographs will be obvious they came from you, not a true professional using professional equipment. Having their home photographed by a pro is impressive to clients and is not something to be skimped out on. Todays homeowners are smart enough to find a new agent if you are not impressing them right from the start.

Upgrades are a fantastic way of going above the virtual tour experience. By adding a 2d or 3d Floor plan, a viewer can get the actual layout of a home. This may be important to parents wanting to see where they would put the nursery relative to their own bedroom and away from the stairwell. It also gives those looking at investment properties the tools they need to get started on their next project.

Floor plans with 2 D Picture Plus Technology showcase the home from the sellers point of view…giving viewers a floor plan with clickable photo icons, allowing a viewer to scroll their mouse over the icon and obtain an actual photograph of the room directly from the floor plan! This photograph can then be enlarged for advanced viewing capabilities.

3 Dimensional floor plans are also a great upgrade to enhance the standard 2 Dimensional plan, making the plan easily understandable. 3 Dimensional plans are absolutely impressive. A great feature to add to any tour and is sure to enhance an agent’s online presence with giving great service.

Going above and beyond, an agent will order a 3 Dimensional Walk through. This is an awesome feature! It gives the viewer a computer animated version of the house using the floor plan. Furnishings are added to give the viewer a clean interpretation of a property’s potential. This feature is also well sought after in the building community. Builders can have their floor plans converted into 3 Dimensional walkthroughs giving the viewer the sense of what the home will appear like when it is finished being built.

Upgrades are the complete package when showing a client they are working with a top agent. It shows the homeowner that the agent has stayed abreast o f technology and will spare no expense in marketing their home to its fullest potential. The best part? The agent just has to find a great virtual tour company in their area that is a true 360 degree virtual tour company, using Real Tour Vision Technology, so they too can take advantage of these remarkable features. The company does all the work and the agent can sit back and concentrate their time on getting more listings!
