The future of real estate listings
Virtual reality which was introduced in the 1860’s has evolved dynamically. Virtual reality (VR) is a computer technology that makes use of Virtual reality headsets, sometimes in combination with physical spaces or multi-projected environments, to create realistic images, sounds and other sensations that simulate a user’s physical presence in a virtual or imaginary environment. It is the combination of two words ‘virtual’ and reality’.
This technology works on the synergy of our natural sense i.e. your sense of smell, touch, taste, sight, and hearing in combination with brain activity to create the world that is not real and make it look real. A person using virtual reality equipment can view the artificial world, and with high-quality VR move about in it and interact with virtual features or items. VR headsets are head-mounted goggles with a screen in front of the eyes. Programs may include audio and sound through speakers or headphones. Virtual reality involves presenting our senses with a computer generated a virtual environment that we can explore in some fashion.
In modern times virtual reality is now applied in sports, fashion, medicine, arts entertainment, and architecture. There are many types of Virtual Reality systems, but they all share similar characteristics such as the ability to allow the person to view three-dimensional images. These systems ensure that our new virtual environment is not only realistic but also enjoyable. The technology is becoming cheaper and more widespread.
Today, Virtual Reality and 360 Tours are applied to Real Estate and could mean a new dimension for the business. By the way, a 360 Tour is a thorough and complete 360-degree by a 360-degree view of a physical property. Each virtual tour is designed from a number of photographs, which are ‘stitched’ together to create a distorted panoramic image. Imagine going to a housing fair and you are not only able to see your soon-to-be house but also how your furniture will sit, and your interior décor would look like. Virtual Reality can and has made this possible. Virtual Tours have created a 360-degree experience that has changed our entire perception of virtual reality. Virtual tours have allowed us to visit places as if we were there in person. With advances in video technology, properties can now be viewed in three dimensions. Matterport now offers a new technology to make real estate catalogs more lethargic. Before long, you’ll be able to attach a VR headset to your phone and get an open house experience without having to go to the property in person. Google Tango and roomy are new Virtual reality technologies that allow you to see your room or house with all the furniture arranged as you would love them.
So, you can see the virtual reality of your already built house, what about the house that is still under construction? Using 3-D modeling, Virtual Xperience allows VR headset users to access the full walkthrough experience in a property that is in development or under construction. These technologies can be used by agents, buyers, sellers, and investors to make the property business more satisfying. A virtual tour on your site can help you build a brand and sell your product as a real estate agent. Already 360 Virtual Tour companies offer touring services to intending property buyers. Some include Open House, Real Tour Vision, Imagine a home, Floored and a whole lot of others. All these fantastic Virtual Reality technologies bring properties to life. They are the future of Real Estate Industry.
