One month ago my Minnesota virtual tour company, Loop Photography, received another client lead from RTV. This one was a little different though, the customer had already used another RTV provider in Florida to help advertise a home for him there. He said he was excited when he talked to RTV again to find out there was indeed another virtual tour company using the Real Tour Vision Technology in the Twin Cities metro area.

Yesterday I completed my fourth 360 virtual tour for him since meeting him last month and every time we talk he mentions another home he will need shot soon.

His newest 360 home tour can be seen here.

If it wasn’t for RTV and a great virtual tour provider in Florida I may never have come in contact with this client, my thanks to you both.

Loop Photography provides the highest quality interactive Virtual Tours in Minnesota as well as providing professional architectural photography services for builders, remodelers, stagers, decorators and for print. For more information please contact Jeff at 612-384-8037.

We’ve loved going through different homes and determining how it should be shot. My wife and I are also actors and directors so we look at things from a theatrical point of view. It helps tremendously.

The frustrating part has been the local real estate community. I think some of them will have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the computer age. Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina have been booming areas for real estate over the last 20 years and now that things are slowing down drastically they’re scrambling to figure out which end of a keyboard is up.

But it’s been the most enjoyable thing I’ve done in years. I look forward to many years of digital photography and 360 home tours. Thank you Real Tour Vision for the spin!

Found It! Virtual Tours is coming up to its first anniversary in less than a week and it has been a interesting, fun and sometimes frustrating ride. While we’ve only been operating on a part time basis up to now we look forward to using the new marketing tools from the RPM marketing system to help expand it to a full time operation.

A recent blog entry mentioned the viewing stats for two particular tours – one was put onto and the other wasn’t. Of course, the one on received the most views due to it being the most popular real estate website and having numerous outside links.

Yes, charges a fee to link the tour (unless the agent has enhanced listings) but most agents don’t understand the return on investment it produces. A virtual tour does little to no advertising on the agent’s site alone. Getting it linked out to the various real estate websites is crucial to marketing. ‘No one is going to know about it unless you get it out there’ is what I tell them.

Last year I shot a virtual home tour for an agent and within 3 days of the 360 tour going online to and various other sites, the home sold. The agent credited the virtual tour as the key point in selling the home so quickly. How do we know this? Because the buyer was from out of state and bought the home just from viewing the tour multiple times. And last month a new realtor who didn’t use to market, even though he had a tour, decided to give it a try. The very next home I did a tour on for him sold within 7 days and the buyer cited the virtual tour on as the key element in making a decision.

Those two real estate agents are talking to others and getting the word out that our virtual tours linked to the various real estate sites are key to selling the listings. There is no better form of advertisement than referrals. Give the realtors in your area a little insight on the marketing power and watch your virtual tour business grow!
