The Best Single Property Website

I wanted to share with you all a little something that Virtual Vista has been offering to its clients.

Virtual Vista has taken the Single Property Website to the next level! We have created a template that uses the embedded virtual tour and the specs that normally appear on the side of the tour window. Also, we have added a link to Realtor.com for more detailed information. We have also added a slideshow, along with the RTV mortgage calculator, school information, and a Google map.

Another cool feature we have added is the request for information form, which is then forwarded to the agent’s e-mail. We have also created a page that allows the client to view the traffic to the property’s site.

Each site can be customized with the company logo, agent picture, and the color scheme of choice. Our property websites look great; they are simple and user friendly, and extremely functional.

We also offer a standard and premium panoramic sign rider.

Please, check out our Property Website Packages. We are very excited about this, and would love to know what you think!!! Please send us some FEEDBACK.

Here are a couple of live samples:

Another quick thing we had to create is a YouTube Tour due to demand in our area. Look at ours, then check out what Circlepix offers. Circlepix who? Yeah that’s what we said!!!

Traverse City Virtual Tour Company Setting Up Shop

I am certainly not one to brag when it comes to being able to rip out a layout or a marketing piece. In school art class my depiction of people was always by way of stick. Later in life my great artistic ability or lack thereof did not change when I got my first computer. If I was going to run a viable virtual tour company in Northern Michigan, if I was going to be the “Online property marketing expert” I told all of our providers to become, I would need something with punch and pizzazz. Aka…I needed to look to the Real Tour Vision business startup CD that we give out to all of our virtual tour providers when they start up their virtual tour company.

It was there that we told everyone to get the foundations for their power point presentations, virtual tour company fliers, contracts and brochures. Surely our business startup CD would help BlueLaVa be the best looking and sharpest virtual tour company in Traverse City.

It was actually quite funny when I started going through the CD. How on Earth could our providers use this stuff? Where were the goods? Where are my basics? Surely there must have been some kind of mistake. I had been given the wrong CD upon startup. Somehow I received a CD from 2004. I am not a detective by any means but I say 2004 because all of the powerful hard hitting stats on the CD were quoted from internet studies done in 2004. I would have to find an updated business startup CD so I could get on with setting up my virtual tour company.

I was shocked to find out that I was indeed given our most current and up to date marketing CD. “Nope, this is our most current business startup CD. That’s it.”, they told me. It’s horrifying to sit back now and look at how over the years I told many a virtual tour provider to use that business startup CD to make an order form, setup a pricing template, create a slim jim or tri-fold brochure. It is horrifying because it appeared to me to be completely impossible. The only settling and hopeful thought that came to me after this realization was the likelihood that most of our providers would be much more artistically talented than myself. One thing was for sure, we had certainly let our business startup CD fall behind. If our providers were going to compete and hit the competition hard we would have to overhaul this puppy and soon. But how?

So here I am with dated stats and marketing materials all in the format of a PDF which I had no clue as how to edit or manipulate. Meanwhile, BlueLaVa is crying for a grand opening flyer, a price sheet and a simple information packet. I am nearly bald from ten hours of getting nowhere with Microsoft office and I was literally drawing stick people when I realized it was midnight. I should have been home for the day hours ago. I was truly as helpless as the owner of a sick goldfish. That’s it, Real Tour Vision corporate would have to buy a marketing company…and fast.

Grand Slam Grcic

I feel like a clean up batter at the bottom of the 9th with the score 3-0 and bases loaded whenever I walk into a situation where Circlepix, or some other virtual tour company, created what they called a virtual tour. The customer is always dissatisfied until I come in to clean the situation up and win the game by hitting my grand slam with our AWESOME 360 virtual tours and service!

This has happened on several occasions and it is an amazing opportunity to shine through and gain a new account. Not only are the customers unhappy with the quality of the competitors virtual tours, but it seems most often that these other virtual tour companies have slow acting customer service calls centers. All of my clients are relieved to know they can easily and quickly reach a local virtual tour provider who is willing to get the job done quick and fast.

The Realtourvision product and support staff have given me the confidence I need to beat out the competition time and time again and gain new happy accounts. Go out there and knock out the competition with your own 360 virtual tour grand slams!!

CirclePix Virtual Tour VS The B

Okay, so I’m sure some of you in major markets have had the question, “So how do you compare to CirclePix virtual tours?” Well, price IS certainly a factor, but take a look at this example and price suddenly no longer becomes part of the conversation.

What do I mean? Well, recently BakerB Solutions had a “summer shutdown” to let all of our people have a vacation. One of our clients hired CirclePix virtual tour photographer during this time. Upon the completion of shutdown, we received an order from them with the following in the comments section of the order: “VT done by CirclePix during shutdown – CirclePix Virtual Tour is no good! MUST HAVE it replaced with BakerB VT ASAP!”

After completing the “redo” of this property I discovered that, while the property is certainly a challenge to do a premium tour, the CirclePix tour lacked some basic elements of a good 360 tour (regardless of the subject). Here are just a few examples of what I found:

1) The broker’s name was not spelled correctly, they called it “Llewellyn Real Estate” when it is actually “Llewellyn Realtors”

2) The street name was spelled as “Briar Wood Terrace” when the actual street is “Briarwood Terrace”

3) The front shot highlights the dead tree stump in the front yard. It is fairly unavoidable, but look at the BakerB/RTV tour and you will see how the interface allows us to “crop” that portion of the image out.

4) Just take a look at the bathroom shots in the CirclePix virtual tour. Is that what you would expect after paying $120?

For more examples, do a side by side comparison for yourself, and you will see why our client demanded our virtual tour replace the the CirclePix tour.

**Note: Please note that while our tour was done on an overcast day after some rainfall (per the agent’s urgent request), we were still able to get “light” into the rooms by overexposing some shots. The CirclePix tour was done late in the day/early evening.
