Virtual Tour of Real Estate

Virtual Reality has made house tours much easier. Everyone would want to take a look at the Real Estate and only then proceeds with the buying of the property. Many a times pictures wouldn’t be satisfactory nor would you get a clear understanding of the structure of the property.

There are a lot of other problems faced as well which includes lack of time to visit the place, unable to travel if the property is far away. All these problems existed in the Real Estate industry and now with the use of Virtual Reality, these are eliminated.

VR helps you visit the property virtually and makes you feel like you are physically taking a tour of the property. All these are possible even without stepping out of your house.

It helps you visit multiple properties within a matter of time and later decide on visiting the place. It helps you save a lot of time and provides you a clear idea.

Virtual Furniture

A real estate place filled with an adequate amount of furniture will always look better than an empty Real estate space. A Real estate space filled with furniture would be easier to sell and would impress you more than an empty one.

According to a report by the National Association of Realtors, 77% of the Real estate agents have claimed that a home filled with furniture has helped the buyers to imagine their future homes.

Filling actual furniture in a newly built house or an empty house is going to be a lot of investment and would cost more for the agents. Virtual Reality helps in showcasing virtual furniture which helps the buyers to imagine their future home and picturize it in an easier way.

Visualizing Real estate Models

Selling an architectural idea has always been hard. Most of the time the design which is sketched by the architecture would be satisfying but sometimes the end model wouldn’t come up to your expectations.

If it is a bigger project you can find architects or developers coming up with a small model of the project with the roads, community, buildings, etc. in a miniature form. For the interiors most of the time the developers would have to invest in setting up a similar design in a showroom.

This again would require a lot of investment from the developers and would consume a lot of time. Virtual Reality helps in solving these problems and would help in visualizing the interiors and exteriors of the properties which are yet to be constructed.

Through Virtual Reality, the client can easily set his expectations and he would know what the end property or the model would look like.
