3D Virtual Tours - A New Dimension to Home Buying

June 1, 2016
Homebuyers are able to experience and gain a more personal connection to a property when taking a 3D virtual tour. Homebuyers navigate through the home online remotely just as they would if they went to an in-person home house. They can see rooms from every angle and zoom in on details. Homebuyers can click their way through the home without ever stepping foot on the property.

Take a 3D Virtual Tour

Remember the days long ago when home listings were only available on paper? With the introduction of the internet, online home surfing became popular, but scrolling through pictures can be frustrating and details can be lost in photos. Videos are also limiting because homebuyers can’t see rooms from every angle or get a sense of the flow of the home. Enter 3D virtual tours using Matterport software...

Imagine being able to tour an entire home from the comforts of your own living room! New software from Matterport called 3D Showcase allows homebuyers to experience a property online. Matterport describes 3D Showcase as an online experience that lets home buyers move through a property and see it from any angle.

Here's a sample of a 3D virtual tour:

Experience a 3D virtual tour on your own by clicking:

Homebuyers use their computer's mouse or arrow keys to navigate through the property and enter each room of the home. 360 degree views of each room are available and homebuyers can zoom in on specific details. They can navigate to any room of their choice in the home and explore the space virtually at their own leisure as they would at an in-person open house or tour. They can view each room at any angle at their own pace. By controlling their own virtual tour, homebuyers can feel the true flow of a property. They can click their way through the home, without ever setting foot on the property.

A dollhouse view and floor plan of the home is also available so homebuyers can see a layout of the house from a wider point of view.

The use of 3D virtual tours provides so many benefits to business of home buying. The tours can save time for realtors and homebuyers by identifying specific properties to visit in person. Homebuyers can peruse a property at their own leisure and can virtually tour a property any time of the day. 3D virtual tours also enable homebuyers to tour homes remotely without needing to travel to long distance destinations.

Even after visiting a home in-person, home buyers can virtually tour the property to reconnect with the home. A 3D virtual tour provides a more personal and emotional connection to a home that pictures and static videos may not achieve.
