Look at that photo...is the tredmill melting? What shape are the windows? Is this place next to a light house?
I really Hate Virtual Tours. The way the spinning, distorted, fisheye, slow to load tours and even slide shows of 2 inch wide low rez photos make you think you are getting more than you do. Frequently you need a computer science degree to understand the tour navigation. Even Worse is the opposite - when its just a few photos in a slide show. If Agents are going to pay so much for so little or to make buyers sick, it should come with Dramamine and an airsick bag!
Yet we in the industry are forced to use this term, seemingly across the board as it is the only thing out there that people recognize for what we do - yet, at FPO we don't spin, don't distort, use clear big photos (and lots of them) and provide extra clear information - but its still a "Virtual Tour".
Agents now say "I don't do virtual tours, they make people sick" Then we say "yes, however this is different" "well are you a Virtual tour company or not?...Then it turns into an Abbot and Costello who's on first bit....

The idea of navigating a home with a floorplan as refrence and providing FloorPlans for comparison with isn't new, home builders have included this feature in marketing promotions since the dawn of time - What is new, is abandoning the spinning tour in favor of FloorPlanOnline next generation Virtual Tours.
