There are many COVID-19 trends starting back due to vaccinations, but some are just here to stay.
As the world slowly opens up again, one trend in real estate probably continuing is the virtual property tour.
With more and more improvements being made in VR tech, businesses plan to use it to give customers a truly immersive experience, and real estate agencies adore using the tech to help customers truly get inside the home and see what it’s like.
Rather than visit a house or apartment you want to buy or rent in person, you can view it online. In many cases, VR headset tech is used to immerse yourself in the home in a way some JPEGs online cannot emulate.
There are still many though who would still see a home in-person with their own two eyes. Being able to feel around the house and being able to notice details a VR headset may not show are valuable.
But there are still a variety of reasons for guided virtual tours, and you’ll learn why VR tech is here to stay.
There are a variety of reasons for VR implementation in home buying and real estate.
VR has come a long way from what it was even 10 years ago, and plenty of businesses are taking advantage of the changes it allows.
More people are working from home, even after the pandemic ends, and have more freedom to move wherever they want.
If someone wants to move far away, they may not want to travel all the way just to tour a home.
There’s a chance they may not like the house, or someone signs the contract from under their feet, but VR allows the person to find the perfect home right from their current home.
As VR improves and becomes more immersive, it can become close to resembling touring in-person. Internet speeds become faster, there will be less lag.
The images look realer and allow the prospect to see details they would have missed 10 years ago as well.
Scheduling is also benefited through VR homes, since agents can help people see homes at all hours of the day, even at weird hours.
With VR tours, it can be a lot easier, as the prospect can take the tour any time.
How Guided Virtual Tours is changing Home VR Tours
There are various startups coming out to help property owners who are interested in providing virtual tours to their prospects. One of them is Guided Virtual Tours, a startup based in Tampa.
Most virtual tours are self-guided, but sometimes, the prospect wants a guide to show everything. Guided Virtual Tours uses a guide to lead the prospect through the property they are interested in, making the experience more accurate to an in-person property tour.
Guided Virtual Tours is not only good for real-time tours, but tours can be recorded and uploaded to social media, allowing more people to see the home and introducing more interest to a home which may not have been noticed before.
Guided Virtual Tours is available through mobile and desktop, allowing the prospect freedom to tour whenever. In addition, the property owner can send tours through text and email in addition to other methods of virtually touring them.
It facilitates buying for both the seller and the buyer, and allows properties sitting on the market to be bought quickly.
Guided Virtual Tours is the child of Chris Vasilakis, who has VR experience as well as a background in American Mensa and the Marine Corps. Vasilakis also has startup experience.
He is confident with Guided Virtual Tours, even saying it will “change the industry” and “be global.” While it’s too early to say, the future does seem bright for virtual tours of homes.
A Clear Picture Forward
VR tours won’t be a trend that dies anytime soon. For now, expect companies like Guided Virtual Tours to lead the charge on making it easier for both sides. Whether you’re a property owner, a prospect, or an investor, don’t count out virtual tours for homes and other pieces of property.
Strap on your VR goggles, get comfortable, and prepare to have a home tour which feels almost like the real thing.
