Technology has dramatically shaped the way real estate projects are being marketed in the competitive industry. Virtual tours have become a powerful feature to show the property to buyers from the comfort of their homes. With eye-catching visuals and animation, 3D virtual tours have become a revolutionary tool in helping estate agents sell properties.
Statistics say buyers spend more than two-thirds of their time online when searching for a property before they actually buy or rent. When you provide them with more information about the property, they are better equipped to make an informed decision.
1. Buyers can view their time viewing a home
There is no rush with a 3D virtual tour. Potential buyers can view the tour as many times as they want, at their own pace, anytime from the comfort of their own homes.
2. Helps tell the story of the property
A professional virtual tour helps tell the story of the property in a much more engaging and interactive way, making the prospects feel like they are at the property, without having to visit it. Styldod’s 360 virtual tour provides clients with a hyper-realistic and accurate view of the property, enabling any customer in any location to easily walk through the entire home from the basement to the attic over and over again.
3. A virtual tour is an open house 24/7
The 3D virtual tour is available 24/7. This means the home is available for the buyer to view anytime. The benefit is that the seller or the real estate agent doesn’t need to prepare the house or schedule the property visits.
4. A solution that adheres to the social distancing norms
360 virtual tour adheres to the social distancing principles, which is so essential during the COVID-19 pandemic. These virtual walkthroughs continue to be a powerful tool to keep buyers engaged in the market.
5. More views and increased online engagement
A real estate listing with a 360 virtual tour receives 50% more perspectives than a competitor’s site without a 360 virtual tour.
Your online communication with your clients gets stronger when you offer a 3D virtual tour, thus increasing your online engagement. Potential buyers can comment in real-time on a listing aspect as they go through the virtual walkthrough.
6. Easy to email and share on social media
A 360 virtual tour can be easily shared via email to a list of prospective buyers. You can simply integrate the tour into your website and other promotional emails, including text or WhatsApp. With just a click of a mouse, you can share the real estate virtual tour to popular social media platforms.
7. Effective on real estate search engines
The 3D virtual tour helps your listing to rank better on real estate search engines, thus increasing your chances of attracting and converting leads.
Not too long ago, providing quality, rich visual media of the property on sale was a thing of luxury. But, now it has become a necessity to effectively market the property on sale to attract buyers. If your property listing doesn’t have a 3D virtual tour, it’s high time to get it done; it will be worth the investment.
