Things to Look for in Your Virtual Home Tour



Virtual reality computer technology allows you to simulate a thrilling and possibly harrowing experience that you might not have the inclination or courage to try in real life. Just put on a headset, engage the VR system and you can “do” everything from flying a World War II fighter plane to skydiving or driving a race car. Many of these systems are so life-like that you will experience many of the same sights, sounds and other sensations as you would if you were there.

While many people participate in virtual reality for entertainment, it also has numerous practical applications. Taking a virtual reality tour is an increasingly popular trend in the real estate industry. Prospective buyers can enjoy a “virtual reality headset retail house tour” that enables them to view the entire house — without ever having to set foot inside. You can download and play the virtual reality content on your computer, smartphone or tablet and insert the device into a headset. This enables you to view and interact with the property just as you would when taking an in-person tour.

Virtual Reality Tour Benefits

Virtual reality tours enable buyers to view several homes at one time without having to visit multiple properties. If you’re in the market for a new home, you won’t have to waste your evenings or weekends traveling to open houses or going from one property to another. The interactive design of the VR system also allows you to take a close look at each room and hone in on features and details such as light fixtures, floor tiles, fireplaces, etc., giving you a true sense of what it would be like to live in the home. You can even use virtual reality to help you design your dream home — you’ll be able to visualize the home before it’s built! Better yet, you’ll be able to see if the home you are interested in has a home security protection service in place in order to help keep your family safe.

If you’re a real estate agent, offering virtual reality tours can give you a competitive edge with younger, tech-savvy buyers who tend to do just about everything on their phones or mobile devices these days. You’ll also find that by incorporating virtual tours with other interactive features such as mortgage calculators, information regarding schools and local amenities and targeted search functions, in addition to highlighting the houses core features such as a home security system, you can provide a more comprehensive shopping experience for your prospects. And you may not have to spend as much time staging open houses or conducting guided on-site tours.

An Advanced Security System Will Provide “Real” Protection for Your Home

Unfortunately, fire, break-ins and carbon monoxide poisoning pose real threats to homeowners in Phoenix, Tucson and the surrounding areas, so it’s important to know whether or not your new prospective home has an advanced home security system in place to help keep your family safe. If you fall in love with a home and find that after you purchased your new home, it does not have a safety and security system in place, you’ll need a reliable security system to protect your property and keep your family safe.
