Virtual tours save home buyers countless hours driving around looking at houses. We value our time, and visit half as many homes if we take virtual tours first. When the virtual tour allows viewers to go between panoramas by clicking on icons, we’ve really done our job:
Selling the house with as few “curious viewings” as possible. It’s frustrating to “pack up the family for half an hour” .. and then experience the roller coaster of feelings afterwards.
Research what’s available and choose a tour you would have on your personal residence. Several Realtors have called us to have a Real Tour Vision virtual tour of their personal residences because they know they work!
Did you know that all Real Tour Vision providers have the ability to resell our entire product line and earn perpetual sales commissions on their accounts? Do you have someone that wants to become a Real Tour Vision provider? Do you have a current client or a prospect in your area that might be interested in our national Tour Track System for their virtual tour requirements? Has anyone asked you if you could provide 3D Walkthroughs of a condominium complex that has not been built yet?
All these represent opportunities for you to earn extra money as part of Real Tour Vision’s Referral and Reseller Programs. For more information and the latest policies and changes to these programs please visit your Real Tour Vision Tour Management system or if you are not yet a Real Tour Vision provider contact your sales representative right away.
Summer is coming! Make sure you have your virtual tour company website up and running! Having a virtual tour company website is only one of the many credibility boosters that you should have for your virtual tour company. You have four options when choosing a website:

We are even currently offering a rollover program for anyone with an old Real Tour Vision template site. Call your sales representative right away and make the rollover happen with no downtime and no cancellation fees.
Virtual Tours…they don’t always have to be 360 degree views!
Real estate agents and their clients are sometimes hesitant to use a virtual tour to show a less than perfect property or one that doesn’t have great neighborhood views. To them I say, “No problem”, we’ll just show the good parts in half a circle or so. Once they realize we are not limited to full 360 views, their eyes start dancing around the property looking for all the good views.
Careful camera positioning can make a huge difference in the way certain shots look. Use walls, window frames, furniture, plants, even slightly open doors to hide unwanted items or views. For an example, I just shot a house on a golf course. Right outside on the other side of the open metal fencing was a huge tree stump. I just put the camera in a spot where the fence post/wall lined up perfectly with the stump and the stump disappeared from my scene. The art of any and all good photography is the details. Keep this in mind when figuring out the best way to utilize virtual tours. Try using only two shots to make a scene. Even a little motion/pan of a view sometimes better than a full 360 or static still shot.
