Making your own real estate virtual tours depends on how much time you have to not only learn the art of photography but also learn how to use one of the many real estate virtual tour software suites that are on the market. While most are very straightforward and easy to use, it will still take time. While making the decision, you should also consider the complexity of the virtual tour that you are looking to create. Simple slideshow virtual tours with still photos are elementary to create, however making a walkthrough style real estate tour will take more time. These complex style tours require that you not only collect more images, but you’ll need to link those images together with hot spots. The cost associated with making real estate virtual tours will range from $100 to $500 for the actual software needed and will cost upwards of $1000 for a virtual tour camera. The cost to have a professional real estate photographer create a real estate virtual tour for you will be between $125 and $300.
