Realtors Using Virtual Tours To Show Properties for Sale
Virtual Tours for Real Estate Sales/Rentals
360 Virtual Tours have always been a very powerful tool realtors and other real estate professionals have used to give buyers a feel for a property they are selling or renting.
It particular worked well with buyers who were abroad or unable to come view the property to give them an idea of what the space looked like.
Now amidst Covid, with tighter open house regulations, Virtual Walk Through tours have been increasing popular.
If your are not familiar with how Virtual Tours work, it entails a photographer (or perhaps you, if you are tech savvy enough) taking 360 degree photos and using a 360 Degree Virtual Tour Software such Kuula (we recommend this one the most for real estate tours) to put together an interactive walk through tour that gives the user the ability to jump from room to room and visual the space in a 360 degree perspective.

Staging the property helps potential buyers/renters visual their future residences and not just an empty building. Additionally staging the home with nice furniture and accessory increase the perceived value of the property.
