3D Virtual Reality Listings Embrace The Change
I currently offer a Free 3d Virtual Reality Listing package on ALL my listings. Why all listings? Because regardless of the price of the home it is somebody's castle and it is going to be someone else's castle soon!

In real estate, it is a time-saving resource for both sales and rentals. Imagine how many times a buyer walks inside a home, and the walls are closer together than they like, or the flow does not work for them. Well, there are a good number of buyers/renters that will not like the home at all, yet they get in the car with an agent and spend everyone's time on something they will definitely not like. This happened to me in a particularly unique rental, the tenants called me and asked to see the home, so I showed them the 3D Virtual they called me back and said it was not their style and thanked me for saving them time.
Of course, the 3D Virtual listing also had the opposite effect on another couple that fell in love with the 2nd-floor balcony addition overlooking the lake as well as the seclusion and privacy! They came by the next day to confirm it was indeed the house and rented it. It is easier to motivate my clients can to "Virtually" see a home they believe they won't like thant it is to motivate them to drive to that same home. I can also show more homes quicker using virtual lisings!
It is usually the agents who cannot understand the concept. I have to state “No, it is not the sliding picture show” and “It is not the spinning room show.” I also tell them that if they have the Samsung VR or Cardboard VR, they and their clients can virtually walk through the house!
I believe I am the first agent in my area doing this in all homes. The clients are impressed and know it will save time! Here is a page with both Rentals and Sales www.757Tours.com . Whether selling or renting, the home is the home. It is a reality that some owners are not going to prep the home as well as others; it is better if the buyers and renters KNOW what to expect. If they see the 3D Virtual tour and still visit that is great news!
The owner has to understand that this cutting edge technology cannot be edited, there is NO way to “photoshop”- what you see is what you get! It is another reason for owners to put in a little more effort to clean and stage their home!
There are many uses for 3D Virtual reality. I can see it utilized by a city or state emergency services in the event they need to find something or someone fast, or before visiting a facility like a gym, you can get the feel and know what to expect before you set foot inside!
I am wondering how many agents are using this 3D Technology in their local cities.
