Earlier this week a good friend shot me a link to a 3D Real Estate walk through tour and I was blown away! On my first digital walk through, I felt a little dizzy zipping around the house but got a great feeling for what it would be like to actually be in the home. Once I found the ‘doll house button’ I was impressed yet again! How did they do this? I frantically scrapped the internet to find out how these walk through’s work!
Everyday technology is bringing concepts to life that have only been seen thus far in the movies and television. This should be very apparent after taking one look at Microsoft’s Hololen’s and Samsung’s VR products. The future is here and technology will continue to change every aspect of our life including the home buying process. Less than a decade ago video walk through’s revolutionized how clients could view properties online with the lowered cost of video camera equipment. Moving from stagnant pictures to full scale 2D visual walk through videos has given home buyers an even better understanding of properties without having to see the home in person. The ever increasing drone videos are now giving home buyers birds eye view looks of homes, their yards, their views, and the neighborhoods in which listings are located.
Just recently we have seen 3D Real Estate walk through tours hitting the internet. This video technology is going to completely revolutionize the industry as the technology becomes even more affordable and the word gets out. Imagine being able to virtually walk through a home out of state or even as soon as it goes live on the market (without having to set up a showing). In the crazy sellers market we area currently experiencing homes are moving fast! You may not have the time to drive to the other side of the Great Seattle area to get to a home in time. With a virtual walk through you could get the best possible feel for a home without ever stepping a foot in it’s neighborhood!
