What are Virtual Tours
A virtual tour is a simulation of an existing location, usually composed of a sequence of still images or even just one still image. Virtual Tours are created using a special camera and web hosting that supports viewing of equirectangular photos. With a virtual tour anyone can virtually walk through a property using their phone, tablet, computer, or even a virtual headset. Users are able to move the camera and have a 360 view of each picture.
WHY CONSIDER USING A VIRTUAL TOUR?
- Virtual tours offer users the ability to see rooms, properties and any item in 360. This eliminates the problem of bad angles or clicking through multiple photos just to get an idea of what a room or place might look like.
- Virtual tours also offer realtors and businesses the ability to post info spots and videos within the tour. These interactive features are great for pointing out what makes a property great or showing of what is great about a business.
- Permanent Open House. The virtual tour is like having a 24/7 Open House – without the presence of the realtor or home seller to show the property.
- The Virtual Tour can be easily found online and provide instant information for a home buyer or for a business.
