Jacksonville Virtual Tour Company Stands Out

I was wrapping up a meeting with a client last week when another real estate agent from the office walked in. This other agent proclaimed he was a huge advocate of virtual tours and regularly used ‘the competition’ for all his virtual tours. He said he believed virtual tours are a tool that is as effective at getting listings as agents are to sell a particular property.

I shared the fact that we had just finished up redesigning my client’s banner and tour window to align with her new brand and website design in support of her listing and sales approach/goals for 2008. That got his attention. The ‘competitor’ simply used a generic tour window with his picture and agency logo and had never offered to sit down and customize the tour to align with his other marketing. That opened the door and now I have a follow up meeting with him next week to discuss more on how Ad Vantage Virtual Tours can truly take his real estate virtual tours to another level.

As an independent Real Tour Vision virtual tour provider in the Jacksonville and St. Augustine area, we establish our own standards of service and create packages tailored to meet the needs of our local market. RTV provides the software flexibility and functionality that allows us to create truly customized tours aligned with our customers’ brand. With the addition of PanoRiders, floor plans and now the new advanced hit statistics, the bar continues to be raised on the service and products we offer clients. What better combination to truly differentiate ourselves from the competition?

Single Property Websites and Panorider Show Off

Have you ordered a single property website yet? Still not sure if the PanoRider is an effective marketing tool? Sure this is an intuitively strong tool, but are there statistics to back up that notion? Well, with the NEW Real Tour Vision Hits Report released yesterday, you can now see for yourself!

When used properly, the PanoRider is EXTREMELY effective! Take a look at one specific PanoRider implemented just a week ago at 7021 Hunter Lane, Hyattsville, MD 20782 found at In just over a week, this virtual tour has achieved 212 hits with 145 of those hits coming directly from the individual property website URL that was placed on the PanoRider. That’s over 68% of the visits to this property directly from the PanoRider!

See more examples of single property websites below:

www.543independence.comHit Stats for this Virtual Tour
www.4406belpreroad.comHit Stats for this Virtual Tour
www.6504nwoak.comHit Stats for this Virtual Tour

Each PanoRider advertises the single property website URL with a high quality photo. The single property website for each tour accounts for at least 45% of the hits and for one virtual tour is as high as 76%! Check out the stats on each one.

The bottom line is that this tool is something every real estate agent should be implementing. And it is your job as a Real Tour Vision provider to make them aware of these significant statistics! The number that should be used is, “…around 50% or more of traffic to your tour will come from the PanoRider…”.

So if you have not ordered a PanoRider yet, you REALLY should think about getting a sample to use for selling to your real estate agent clients. Once they see the product in person, backed by these statistics (feel free to print out a Hits Report from any of the samples above), there will be no denying that you WILL sell these to your best clients! So place your order today and start generating extra revenue in 2008!

Individual Property Websites And The Panorider

Have you seen one of the PanoRiders offered by Real Tour Vision? If you haven’t, you should consider ordering a sample to keep in your car. Why? Ever since RTV started offering the individual property website and PanoRider service I have kept a sample in MY car to show all of my clients. Sure you can explain the product to the agent, and in most cases they “get it”, but realistically it is so much better to view the full color Panorider rather than just hear about it.

I usually start the conversation by saying, “Hey, I have a new product in the car I want to show you. This is the PanoRider. What we do is forward the finished virtual tour to an individual property website for the house. Then we make this sign rider you can hang right here (as I hold it under their sign)…”. The result is that about 90% of my customers buy it right there on the spot! I charge $100 for this service, and those that “get it” have no problem with that price! The moral of the story is that if you don’t have a sample in your trunk, you have to sell using words. The combined power of the single property website and the full color panorama sells itself. All you have to do is show it to them. And you don’t even have to sell them the real estate home tour because you are already there to do it anyway!

All Shook Up About PanoRiders

I am sooooo excited about the new RTV Single Property Websites and PanoRiders! Of course, I had been waiting on pins and needles for these to finally arrive and become available! Not only for the absolutely gorgeous panoramic photos that can be displayed prominently on the riders themselves, but almost more so for the incredibly easy way to CRUSH the competition with the website url!! Combining the two is the BOMB! Seriously! What better way for a Realtor or anybody for that matter to promote their business and that particular listing itself! Why would anyone not want to take advantage of this?!
I have to admit that I had a few concerns with my first “trial” order. It was the PanoRider sign size. In reality, it just wasn’t going to work with our signs. I tried to talk to my husband and to figure out a way that we could rig it to work with the existing signs, maybe even make some sort of contraption to attach to the sign to hold the rider on top…. but he convinced me that it would look bad. I had to get with Real Tour Vision to custom make my PanoRider which was absolutely NO PROBLEM! I tell you, these guys are great and will go the extra mile, no questions asked! I sent them the dimensions and they made the rider. It was that easy! Unfortunately I had second guessed myself and instead of going off the actual dimensions of the sign rider I have sitting in my living room office, I went off the dimensions of the generic ones that we can order online. Unfortunately, when it arrived, it was just a smidge too big. My husband modified it gently with the power saw with not so perfect results. Although it didn’t look bad, it wasn’t perfect. When we put it in the sign itself, it did cover up the imperfections, but still cut off the top of the lettering…. But even still, this is something that nobody else offers!! A cut above the competition and a way cool bonus to the sellers!!
My second order is absolutely PERFECT (pictured above)! I am so excited about it and am LOVING everything about it! I don’t know yet if everyone else is as excited as I am about this new revolution in marketing, but I think it’s just GREAT! In the meantime, who has time to blog?! Thanks to the recommendation of this Realtor I’m currently working closely with, I’ve just received an order for 17 full blown virtual tours from another builder on all his current homes for sale!

PanoRiders for Realtors

If you are a Realtor®, you are probably always looking for that edge over your competition. But you are only interested in marketing that works. The PanoRider™ provided by your Real Tour Vision virtual tour provider is just such a marketing tool.

The PanoRider is a custom sign rider that hangs off your broker’s sign. It contains a property specific web address for the property along with a full color panoramic photograph of the property. The web address is the same as the property address so it is easy to remember for prospective buyers and neighbors.

The Statistics

• The top scoring source of information for buyers is now the Internet, mentioned by 77% of all Home Buyers.*

• In addition, 71% of all Home Buyers surveyed, mentioned the yard sign as an important source of information. *

*National Association of Realtors® Home Buyer and Seller Survey 2006

A PanoRider combines the exposure of the Yard Sign with the power of the Internet. It drives prospective buyers to a 360 virtual tour of the property, even if no one is home to let them see the inside. The statistics support the need for every listing to have a PanoRider, regardless of market conditions. And the virtual tour contains your phone number, website and email, so you get the most exposure possible to secure an offer!

Property Specific Websites (

The web address on the PanoRider is for a property specific website for your listing. This website contains your full interactive 360 virtual tour with enhanced listing features including these options:

• Integrated Panoramic and Still Photos with Interactive Hot Spot Navigation

• Map, Satellite View and Driving Directions

• Mortgage Calculator

• Optional Music, Floor Plans & Brochure
