These days, real estate listings can be integrated with the latest technology to make selling property more efficient. Virtual tours stand out as a way to give prospective buyers a way to view the space before visiting the unit. There are two ways to go about it: the 360° Virtual Tour and the Matterport 3D Virtual Tour. Despite sounding similar the purpose, execution and effect differs between these two tours.
Let’s dive into how they differ and how you can use them to make your property listing more attractive:
360° Virtual Tour
A 360° virtual tour consists of 360° views of individual room or space. The viewer can look around and rotate their view, but they do not have any control over the image beyond the direction they are looking at. Although these static images provide limited viewing options, 360° virtual tours are a great way for a prospective buyer to quickly get a feel of individual rooms and form a broad overall impression of the unit.
3D Virtual Tour
Matterport 3D virtual tour stands out by giving viewers full control over what they want to do, where they want to go and how they want to see it. They can explore the property in person, clicking on controls to navigate the rooms like they are physically there – giving them a taste of what it is like to move around in the space. Want to see what’s behind that countertop? No problem. Need a closer look at how much space is in the kitchen? Sure thing.
Matterport 3D virtual tours give prospective buyers a more holistic look at the property, allowing them to explore rooms from different angles - if the prospective buyer needs another perspective, they can even view the property as a dollhouse or top-down like how you would inspect a floorplan. It is also possible to explore the property in Virtual Reality mode to truly take the in-person experience to the next level! Overall, it is a versatile, engaging, and interactive experience that enables agents to highlight the best features of a property and allows buyers to explore the unit freely at their own pace.
The sale process is accelerated because potential buyers can skip the initial stage of first impressions and considerations by getting a feel of the property from the get-go. Those that arrange for an in-person viewing to take up an agent’s time should already be serious about buying the property.
