After searching for a professional virtual tour provider that could help me with my new business venture, I found RTV to stand out from the competition. I compared RTV with 2 other popular virtual tour providers and RTV was the best choice. They offered so much more than anyone else. When I contacted Jason at RTV, he returned my calls promptly and answered all my questions very honestly. Now that I’ve made the decision to move forward with RTV, they’ve treated me like family. There has been a lot of time, thought and work put into RTV over the years and it shows. As a virtual tour provider, their software is user friendly and well thought out. The other competitors didn’t offer half of what RTV does. I’m pretty happy I made the choice to partner with RTV!

I started using Real Tour Vision about a month ago. Jason and his staff were extremely helpful. Jason took the time to talk to me and email numerous times while I was deciding which virtual tour provider to work with. He helped me purchase the Panono and even chased down the UPS truck to make sure I got it in time for a big shoot I had. The technical staff also went above and beyond answering my endless questions and helping me to get up and running. I love this service and so do my customers. There are so many things it offers that I haven’t even tapped into yet. They really thought of everything. I am very happy with my total experience so far and look forward to working with Real Tour Vision for a long time to come. Thank you, Christine Caso

Assuming you already have a computer, photo editing software, and a good internet connection, the costs involved in becoming a virtual tour provider will range from $500 to $5000.  The large variant here is due to the types of virtual tour technology that is available on the market. For example, if you wanted to only offer Zillow 3D home tours you could easily start up your business with the purchase of a 360 camera. While this would be very limiting to your business offerings, it’s a viable solution that many have embarked on over the past years and have found success. Most virtual tour providers also want to offer a stand-alone solution and therefore align themselves with a virtual tour hosting company. A good virtual tour hosting company will likely have a startup fee and monthly fees associated with it but will allow the virtual tour provider to offer a wide variety of offerings from single property websites, virtual tours, weekly seller’s reports, image delivery, and sometimes even photography job scheduling.  Choose a company that is forward-thinking and one that is continually updating its platform. 

To find the best virtual tour provider, you must start by determining the type of virtual tour that you’re looking for. If you simply want to have a still photo virtual tour created of a real estate listing or a business, most real estate photographers will be able to provide such services using third-party software or even YouTube as a hosting engine. It gets a bit more complicated when you’re looking for 3D virtual tours or even video walkthrough style virtual tours.  Most videographers can provide you with an edited virtual tour of a home or a business by collecting video clips and walking through a few times to gather the right takes.  That footage can then be edited and pieced together to make a full video virtual tour production of your home or storefront. The 3D virtual tour which is sometimes referred to as a walkthrough style virtual tour is by far the most complex and will require specialized hardware, software and training to acquire. Once you locate a few individuals that are able to create this type of production for you, be sure that you ask for examples of their work so you can compare the quality.  Plan on the video virtual tour and the 3D virtual tour being the most expensive since they will require the most time and editing to create. Most quality virtual tour productions will require an annual fee to stay online and will also include hosting of the virtual tour for you. 

To become a virtual tour provider, you will first need to choose a virtual tour technology that is most in alignment with your end product and goal. There are many types of virtual tours that you can create, so identifying this first will determine your pathway to get there. 3D virtual tours like those from Matterport and iGuide will require very expensive and specialized equipment. Floor plan virtual tours will require some knowhow on making a floor plan and integrating that into a presentation. Mixed media virtual tours are those that are made up of still photos, 3d or 360 photos and full motion video. This will require more equipment too. We recommend finding a technology that you like and then speaking with a representative of that company as to what you will need to purchase to get to the end product for the customer. There are many great products on the market these days, and the most reputable virtual tour hosting and virtual tour software companies make it very easy for you to test out the virtual tour system before actually signing up.  No matter who you end up choosing, you should plan on buying a 360 camera, a good computer, photo editing software, and maybe even a panohead and a fisheye lens before your finished gearing up. If you’re brand new to photography, you’ll want to plan on learning how to take great looking still photos as well as 360 tour images.  Always remember that you can’t list a home without still photos.  You don’t want to only offer the virtual tour service as it will make you too vulnerable to replacement when the real estate photographer decides to start offering virtual tours. Knowing how to take amazing still photos will be a requirement on your journey in becoming a virtual tour provider. Several companies will also provide real estate photography training too so whomever you decide to invest in make sure they give some training in this department too.
