Virtual tours of one sort or another have been around since the 90s, but these days, virtual tours for real estate are a huge added value if you’re selling your home. Online real estate tours used to be low-quality affairs that weren’t a particularly good representation of your home, but those days are at an end. Recent technology advances have turned virtual tours for real estate into sharp, high-definition “walkthroughs” whose quality rivals HD television and modern video games.
At Inhabit Missoula, we’ve adopted a new 3D technology called Matterport that allows us to create scary good virtual real estate tours for our customers. Take a look at these additional examples to see what we mean.
What’s a Virtual Real Estate Tour, Anyway?
For those may not know, a virtual real estate tour uses Internet technology that allows prospective buyers to “walk through” your home without having to physically be there. Think of it as a kind of online open house that’s available 24/7.
Can a Virtual Real Estate Tour Help Me Sell My Home?
Yes, most definitely. First of all, did you know that 90% of all real estate purchases start with online research? We research everything before we buy it these days, so it’s not surprising that buying a home (one of the biggest investments ever) would start online. And that’s where a virtual real estate tour can help your property really stand out. It’s a natural bridge between research and seeing it in real life. Plus, the prospects who do come to your home in person are per-qualified; they’ve already “seen” your property and decided they like it enough to come and visit. Your MLS listing also now includes a space for a virtual real estate tour of your property, and we encourage you to use it.
In fact, we’ll create a Matterport 3D virtual real estate tour of your home absolutely free when you list it for sale with us here at Inhabit Missoula. Please contact our brokers Lorin and Amy Peterson to get started.
