Dicussing Ways Virtual Tours Can Help Your Business

by Daniel Handler

Real estate businesses would benefit greatly from a virtual tour service feature on their websites. This can be hugely attractive to any visitor on your website. The fact is, whether you're in the real estate business or in some other kind of venture, it's a great idea to show your potential customers what kind of services or facilities you can offer.

Your agency can have increased sales and leases with the help of well designed 360 tours. For starters, let's talk about what a virtual tour is. A virtual tour, simply put, is a model of your existing area or facility. The most basic virtual tours are made up of video footage from the area. Effects and other features such as narration, text, and music are also often used in these tours. Virtual tours can be panoramic or 360. Panoramic virtual tours show an unbroken view of the location being featured. Panoramic and virtual tours are made by the use of still cameras. With this shooting mode, all shots are taken from just one view. In a video tour, the customer will feel as if he or she is walking at the exact location.

Virtual tours are key to growth, especially to real estate businesses. This is because they give an idea to any customer who is interested in buying property or renting it. Virtual tours are therefore an investment in advertising, since it can reel in more customers. Also, it saves the customers time and energy from actually visiting the property. There is a huge variation in virtual tours. These range from simple plans such as floor plans and extensive projects like a complete virtual tour of the location. If a floor plan is interactive then it will show images and arrows indicating the position of the photographer and where the photograph was taken.

Professionals are usually the ones who take on the project of creating extensive virtual tours. You can hire a professional photographer to go to the location you want featured on the virtual tour. The photographer will then digitally capture several images. Afterwards, a professional stitching software will be used to create the complete virtual tour. Because of the costs of hiring a professional photographer and making use of a specialized stitching program in making a complete virtual tour, it's notably more expensive than a virtual tour of a floor plan.

With a virtual tour, an agency can sell their properties easily and quickly. Customers tend to find 360 virtual tours more attractive, because this type of virtual tour gives them on-demand access to a 360 degree view of the property being featured. This helps customers make their decision with added confidence.

Virtual tours offer customers something static pictures can't give, which is an easy way of navigating through the property in question and being able to scrutinize said property more carefully. The customer likewise doesn't have to spend too much time in viewing the property with the use of a virtual tour. Customers don't have to get out of their own homes in order to examine the property, all they need to do is go online.

The customer will also have no difficulty viewing said virtual tours, since they're integrated onto the website. Customers need not download any additional add-ons or plug-ins. The customer can also consult friends and family about the property in question by just showing them the website. Likewise, the property in question can be viewed at any time, any day of the week. With virtual tours, the possibilities are endless.
