Interactive technology in the real estate sector has created tools that improve the shopping experience and facilitate the successful sale of a property. In this article, we are going to explain what a virtual tour is🌍, and step by step how to create a virtual tour for a property with the FLOORFY app and a 360 📷 camera.
What exactly is a 360-degree virtual tour?🔄
The 360º virtual tour allows the real estate agency and its agents to show homes to prospective buyers, from the office itself, without the need to physically visit each one of them.
This saves an enormous amount of time⏰ in addition to generating an important bond, since the buyer will appreciate the fact that we make it easier for them to make a decision that is already complex.
Through the virtual tour, the user can literally walk around the house🚶♂️, zoom in and out of points, see the finishes, see all the rooms, how the light affects them. In short, they can evaluate all the aspects they consider relevant.
