There are numerous benefits that virtual tours bring. Find out what is a virtual tour and how to make a virtual tour that will help with your listings.
What is a Virtual Tour?
A 3D virtual tour (or 360 virtual tour service) depicts a simulation of a certain living area – an existing location or computer-generated imagery of the space that hasn’t been built yet, usually composed of a sequence of animated videos files or static images. It usually consists of other multimedia features, such as sound effects, music, or text. This kind of approach ensures offering clients a complete experience and a comprehensive understanding of the space in architecture or somebody’s business in general.
Talking about the benefits of the tours, we must first analyze the added value virtual architectural visualization brings. Being priceless for real estate agencies, brokers, developers, builders, and architects, 3D architectural visualization pushed the boundaries of real estate marketing and this market field in general.
Benefits of 3D 360 Virtual Tour Services
Interactive: 360 virtual tour allows your clients to comprehend our business online. This makes it possible for the clients to focus on their usual activities while maintaining contact with their customers.
Fascinate clients: plain dull text and still images are not so captivating for your website’s visitors. A virtual 3D tour keeps viewers engaged for relatively longer than simple images do. The option of placing Media Tags combined with various content helps the viewers be engaged with the product.
Expand the engagement: using the opportunity to view listings from the comfort of their home, clients and buyers are more likely to like the product and visit the subject of their interest in person, increasing the probability of purchase, eventually.
Time and effort economy: instead of missing buyers after business hours, it is very likely to increase virtual overviews and offers by being virtually open for anyone who wants to make a purchase. This saves the most critical resources that would otherwise be spent catering to customers who may never buy but just come in to look.
A stronger online presence: Last but not least, having a 3D virtual tour integrated into the website as a part of the Google Business Listing offers clients the chance to see more and learn more about our business. When clients respond and interact with the increased level of online content, it initiates Google to give a specific elevation to your business in online search queries, which puts you leaps and bounds above your competition.
Because many clients tend to use the convenience of shopping from the comfort of their homes, many of them do not want to physically walk through the space they’re buying. Besides all other benefits, 3D virtual tours are considered more reliable than actual property photos. In many cases, images are not adequately impressive and striking. In addition, 3D virtual tours eliminate certain risks that a picture or a photo has and provide a proper real estate perspective.
One thing is for sure – we should not make promises that we cannot keep. A 3D tour can help us make promises that would be easy to hold on to, either selling the listing or building it for our client.

How to Make a Virtual Tour?
There are two basic ways to compile 3D virtual tours. The tour can be made out of virtual staging images. It is made out of pictures taken of the existing space – vacant photos furnished virtually. A better solution is a tour made of computer-generated images (CGI); hence it gives the additional option of getting the general appearance of the space that doesn’t actually exist yet. Therefore, this way of presentation brings additional value to the perception of the space by the client. The most significant benefit of the CGI 3D virtual tour is that people can get a picture how what the space looks like even before it gets built.
The essential principles of building virtual tours consist of detailed documentation needed to build the space in the first place – if we talk about CGI virtual tours. Talking about the tours made on the basis of the virtual staging, the only thing needed is to take good pictures and provide them to us as editors. The rest is history.
