Apartment Photography & Virtual Tours with RTV

Apartment Photography

Choosing an apartment or a condo to rent is an important decision—and the more information you can give prospective renters, the more likely you’ll be to get your lease signed. If you are a real estate agent, property owner, or virtual tour service provider, don’t overlook creating virtual tours for rental properties like apartments, town homes, and condominiums.

Why should you create virtual tours for apartments?

Most people who are looking to rent an apartment are just like home buyers in that they want a place to call home, where they’ll be comfortable and happy. Whether they’re moving locally or from a long distance, an apartment virtual tour will give them the opportunity to experience individual units without having to schedule an extra trip to the property. This convenience helps you to attract more interested renters, who are able to see exactly what your units look like right from their computer or mobile device.

In addition, virtual tours for apartments allow you to point out the unique characteristics of each unit you have available. Not all apartments, condos, and townhouses are the same, and renters like to know that there’s something interesting or different about the unit they’re considering.

What to include in an apartment virtual tour
As with any effective virtual tour, a great virtual tour for an apartment will show all of the major areas that renters want to know about. Include stunning, high quality images and video of the unit’s living area, kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms. For units with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, be sure to include photos of each individual room—even if they have similar or identical designs.

Your apartment virtual tour should also include images of the interior of the unit building, along with any shared amenities available to tenants, such as laundry rooms, vending machines, or gym areas. Show the exterior of the building, as well as outside areas for use by tenants such as courtyards, porches, or balconies. If you have dedicated parking areas for tenants, include them in your virtual tour as well.

Finally, many renters want to know about the surrounding neighborhood and community. Take photos and videos of nearby amenities and conveniences, especially those that are within walking distance or accessible by public transportation. Don’t forget to include contact information at the end of your virtual tour, so interested renters can find out more or schedule a viewing!

Why Apartment Photography & RTV Interactive Apartment Virtual Tours?

We live in a world where styles change constantly and fresh images and interactive virtual media are always in demand. Professionals in every field, especially housing, must be aware of these changes and possess the flexibility and imagination to stay ahead of the trends.

The new rules of internet marketing are moving away from traditional monologue and making interactive virtual media a MUST. The central goal of online marketing is ENGAGEMENT. This means getting your customer or potential client involved with your apartment and staff before they ever actually pick up that phone. When customers like what they see this creates a virtual relationship between your apartment complex and the customer right there on the Web. It hooks them in and encourages the most qualified clients, and serious inquiries to reach out to you online.

Does your apartment complex need a virtual makeover? If you’re ready to take on more renters and fill your complex as soon as possible, let RTV help today! With our apartment photography and HD virtual tour services we can be sure to help give you the boost that you’re looking for. If you have outdated and unprofessional pictures of your apartments, clubhouse, pools, fitness centers, laundry areas, and offices, we can help turn it all around.

At RTV we specialize in professional apartment photography and much more. Not unlike real estate photography, having good images and solid virtual tours for each of your apartments can mean the difference of several leads. The fact that “photographs and virtual tours” are the most commonly used tool while searching for real estate and apartment rentals alike, it’s more important than ever to invest in continual upkeep on the images you provide to potential renters.

Welcoming in people online through our professional and high resolution apartment photography will start getting you the renters you want sooner than you might think. Generally, as in real estate, the more pictures the better. You want to make sure that you are showing off your best features and that the onlookers can see everything that would be important to them when looking for a new place to call home. A riveting tour of the different floor plans, the common area, the grounds, and more could easily help a potential client choose you over the competition. Engaging people through your listings and letting them interact with you before they even step foot at your apartment complex is a key element in gaining more renters and earning you more money!
