Is iPhone Your Solution?

Is an iphone your solution? Recently I was reading an article by Erika Christopher on the use of an i-phone to try to improve the look of a house. Even though she mentions a set of available software to fulfill these objectives, there are some obvious difficulties on it.

•1.      First it is obvious you need not only an iphone but an specific  provider that provides these services.
•2.      It really does not cover the possibility of room staging.
•3.      You will not capture and receive immediate feedback on your phone when a prospect contacts your listing.
•4.      It does not allow you to improve the SEO of your website by social networking.

All these can be solved by using virtual tours and the other services provide by Virtual Florida Tours.
Our virtual tours allow you to increase your SEO since they offer automatic social networking, and by a small extra payment you may obtain a complete virtual staging of any room of your listing, or receive immediate feedback in up to 10 listings for only 29 dollars per month.

Virtual Staging in South Florida

Got Vacant Listings? You might decide to accomplish a complete remodeling and decoration of the house which can become rather expensive. If you decide to remodel or decorate remember you are doing it for the general public. Do not forget to draft a budget and look for a professional remodeler to help plan the project. Check his/her references and check the contract before you do anything else.

After that the first step is to paint the outside. Do not crowd the room should only cover 30% of each room, anything else will make the room look too cluttered.  Do not place drapes or open them you need as much light as possible in all the rooms. The real problem of this solution is that it is extremely expensive.

Virtual Florida Tours is very pleased to announce our all new virtual home staging product. We will take any unfurnished room and stage it to your taste and style for only $60.00. You’re able to choose the furniture from our online furniture library. Ordering virtual staging for one of your properties can be done by giving us a call from the number below anytime!

Home staging is frequently employed by homeowners and real estate agents to help show properties to their best advantage. We all know that a staged home shows better than an empty home. As wonderful as traditional home staging is there are some drawbacks.

This is where virtual home staging really shines. Virtual home staging is the process of taking digital photos of empty rooms and inserting digital furniture, window treatments, and other decorations.

The attributes of each property are enhanced by the staging, rather than showcasing the taste of the homeowner. Virtual home staging costs a fraction of a physical staging and is a great tool to help showcase the home to prospective buyers. Most people looking for a home search the internet first and having a beautifully decorated home captures the interest of buyers and motivates them to schedule a showing with a real estate agent. Photos of empty homes are not as impressive as a staged home and may not help a potential buyer make an emotional connection to the property. Start virtually staging your vacant homes today!
Are you ready to start showing your listing totally decorated?

Tour Tracking Through Southern California

Brad and I have been professional digital photographers for many years and use only professional Canon Equipment, Lighting, and Editing Software.  We pride ourselves on our relationship with our agents, vendors and clients.  This was an incredible trip to Southern California and should serve as a model to other RTV virtual tour providers who are willing to push themselves a little out of the box.

We had a party scheduled in Santa Barbara, Ca on Saturday night we really wanted to go to but wanted to optimize the trip with business as well.  It started with a seven hour drive to Santa Barbara from Scottsdale on Friday.  Saturday morning when we woke up, we had scheduled an exterior virtual tour photo shoot of a custom home built on Oxnard Beach.  The weather cooperated fully and just as we needed to shoot, the clouds, the sky and the sun came together to provide a magnificent combination of elements to enhance our picture (which we shot in HDR).  From there we went to the marina and shot some 360 virtual tours to make samples for our website.   Then back to the hotel for a nap and to get ready for the party in Montecito.

We are shameless, we met a couple of real estate agents at the party and gave a pitch on RTV’s new virtual staging product.  I had my blackberry with me so I was able to pull up Jason’s samples from his newsletter to show them.  By the way – a great time to show our Scottsdale Mobile Text Marketing sample site, and don’t think this didn’t make an impression on them as well.  Party, Party, Party and back to the hotel.

Sunday morning was mentoring time.  We hooked up with a retired TV/Movie Producer/Director who mentored us on light and video.  The afternoon was spent with relatives looking at kyacks for a future trip to California.

Monday morning we were exhausted and needed to rest up because……
WE HAD OUR FIRST TOUR TRACK job from RTV. By letting RTV know we were going to be in Southern California we were able to get a Tour Track scheduled and bring in additional income to cover the trip.  Boy are we green for professional photographers.  We figured 5 hours was fine for a shoot, but….did you know that two different sets of dusk and twilight shots cannot be shot at the same time if they are a 20 minute walk apart from each other.  Did you know that when shooting a Model home that is suppose to be furnished, that furniture may not be provided (great opportunity for virtual staging by the way).  Did you know that an occupied unit in no way shape or form can conform to the rules of Tour Track without weeks of cleaning, straightening, boarding the pets and moving personal belongings.  Also, can anyone define:  get a neighborhood shot of Sprinter.  Anyway, we did our best, we were scheduled for 30 shots and ended up taking about 60, so I am sure the client will be happy.

But, the most important lesson is this.  We took all the Formula, Image and Tour Track advice.  In no way, shape or form can an apartment complex be adequately shot in less than 6 hours and meet the standards.   Lesson to you fellow providers: whether it is a high paying tour track or the lowest paying, be sure to scout out the property first.  Even if you have to take neighborhood outdoor shots the day before and mark on a map your outdoor shots of the complex or hotel, spend the extra time – you will need it to properly light the caves that show up as apartments, to creatively carve out shots without parking lots or cars or people and to meet all of the shot requirements on the list.

Good luck on your Tour Tracks – they are a great source of income, and can be fun to shoot as there is very little post if you do it correctly and definitely no setup, juicing or boosting required.  Above all Tour Track is a way that Mother RTV gives back to its’ loyal virtual tour providers. Even $175 for the complex and the 5 hours time to shoot more than makes up for the time to do post and/or set up all of the things you promise to clients.

P.S.  Jacque Burque and her crew are great to work with.
