How Effective are Virtual Tours – Really?

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!

Can I Have Fries With That?

I own a Southern Pines, NC Virtual Tour Compnay and we provide Virtual Tours, floor plans, professional printing (with an affiliate) and other various services. I have been taking some classes with an unmentioned real estate group just to see what Realtors are up to and how they are looking at and approaching things. I figure what better way to get into a Realtors head than to take a class with them and learn what they are learning. Not to mention they know I am a Virtual Tour Provider so how convenient when they are talking about marketing they have a marketing tool right at hand!

I have had many things just kick me in the face and make me wonder “why haven’t I been doing this?” Realtors much like Virtual Tour Providers are trying to market them selves and their ability to do something for some one else that just about any other Realtor can do so it is more important than ever to find out what your customer really wants? I was told a quote that will stick with me for the rest of my life… “Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there!”

So Real Tour Vision has put me on the right track and I am not about to sit here and get run over by the competition. We offer a better and much higher quality Virtual Tour than any of our competitors so why wouldn’t people want to order from us? This is the biggest question and the biggest problem. Until you have figured out the exact answer to this question you have no other problem. The phone not ringing, no orders coming over via fax, emails not pouring do not even matter if you are unable to answer this question. What makes YOU better? What makes YOUR product better? Why should they use YOU if your prices are $25 higher than your competitor?

Customers don’t care that you have better equipment they don’t even care if you have only been doing this for 2 months or 2 years they want to know how YOU benefit them. NOT how Virtual Tours benefit them (because they already know this if they use them) but how YOU benefit them. What are YOU able to do that none of your competitors have even began to think about? Maybe it’s 3-D Floor Plans or even just your personal attention to their needs and wants.

Don’t promise them the world then only provide a City. Promise them a City then give them the whole country. Under promise and always over deliver. If you over state what your abilities and intentions are you are setting your self up for failure for sure. Why not promote and offer a smaller amount of service and provide a lot more. Doesn’t it feel better to you if someone offers you a hot dog and then gives you a chili dog with fries? This also will get people talking.

When someone brings up Virtual Tours, they will immediately think about you and how you promised them a hot dog but gave them a chili dog with fries. Although you are offering a smaller amount of services you have the ability to exceed their expectations and do what you normally would do but make your services appear more valuable. It is not about how much you do but how well you market what you do. So from now on look at things like a Burger joint and don’t ask would you like fries with that? Just give them the fries they wanted but didn’t ask for.

Automatic 3D Walkthrough Praise

Dear Real Tour Vision,

I just wanted to thank your entire team for all of your hard work on making our dream a reality. It was amazing how quickly you put together our first 3d virtual walkthrough from the 2d Floor Plan sketches that we faxed you. I am so grateful to you for being so easy to work with and always responding quickly to our requests.

We are in the process of building and selling a home so naturally we are very excited to be able to show what they house will look before it is even built. In the past we simply had to show someone a floor plan and the customer would have to visualize which is not something that everyone can do very well. Your floor plan and 3D walkthrough service really made the house come to life before our eyes. We are so grateful to you for making this happen.

We have just started to use this tool and we will be sending in over 20 more sketch and fax floor plans over the the next week or so because we are so happy with the product that you have provided to us. We are very glad that we found you and your company and we will be talking to you soon about the new floor plans and the new builders that this tool will attract.

Floor Plan Software Now Available!

Creating floor plans with Real Tour Vision for real estate or businesses is an easy and rather inexpensive approach to making your clients home or business stand out. The combination of a floor plan and a virtual tour gives viewers a real sense of place and perception. The perspective gives them the ability to see how rooms come together, allowing them to visualize themselves there.

This release of the Real Tour Vision floor plans is phase one of what will be a two step process. Phase two is when our floor plans become fully integrated within our virtual tour viewer. Buyers will then have all the information they need about your property and business by looking at the virtual tour while they look at the plan and the panorama on their screen.

Real Tour Vision has made creating stunning floor plans very simple and easy to do. We have setup and established for all of our virtual tour providers three simple ways to create and offer 2d and 3d floor plans. We have taken into consideration the fact that many of our virtual tour providers will want to learn how to use our new floor plan software while others will not.

Option One – Make Your Own Floor Plan

This first option that we now offer we feel most of our virtual tour providers will take advantage of and that is the ability to draw a floor plan directly from our tour management system. Our easy to use floor plan software will allow even a novice to create stunning 2D and 3D floor plans as well as order 3D walkthroughs of homes with just the click of a button. The floor plan software is now active and ready to use for all Real Tour Vision virtual tour providers.

Option Two – Floor Plan Sketch & Fax Service

The second option that we are opening up to our virtual tour providers is a service that we call floor plan sketch & fax. The Real Tour Vision floor plan Sketch & Fax allows our virtual tour providers to take our graph paper into the home with, draw a rough sketch of the layout and fax it into Real Tour Vision. We take care of the final floor plan measuring, drawing and production. It’s really that easy!

Option Three – Order Full Service Floor Plans

Finally our third option to our providers is our full service option. We now offer a national floor plan service in most areas of the USA. You are able to simply pickup the phone, call Real Tour Vision and we will place your floor plan order right over the phone. At the day and time of your scheduled floor plan a representative will show up, measure the home, draw a floor plan and deliver that to Real Tour Vision. This is by far the easiest solution we now offer for our virtual tour providers nationwide.

If you are in need of 2D floor plans or our new and exciting 3D floor plans make sure you contact us today and we will put you in touch with a Real Tour Vision floor plan provider who can help you fulfill your floor plan order!The cost per plan will vary depending on the square footage of the home.
