The latest and most advanced providers of virtual tours are simulated “real-life” experiences like the holodeck on Star Trek. New camera technology is driving this innovation, allowing professional photographers and advanced hobbyists to capture everything the eye can see onto a digital canvas.

Cameras used in these advanced virtual tours make use of 360-degree rotation and 3-dimensional image resolutions. Photographers do not even use the term “take pictures” anymore. When referring to capturing everything in a room, they refer to it as “scans.” Once the interior of a property is scanned, the opportunities to present the property in the best possible way are limitless.
These camera scans have given birth to a new genre of editing tools. New software allows professional editors to truly create virtual environments that homebuyers can experience on any screen (mobile, desktop, tablet).
In the development of these virtual environments, decorative changes can be made to a property to enhance its marketability without misrepresenting a home. Remember, when listing a property, its contents are not normally included for sale in the listing. It is not unethical to virtually restage the home to demonstrate its potential.
Now, agents can work with these advanced virtual tour vendors to take the bones of a house and really make it stand out with virtual staging–even staging the same room in different styles–redecorating, and even twilight conversions and automated floorplan and room size calculations.
Virtual Tours have finally come of age and are living up to the concept of “virtual.” If you decide to buy, the focus should be on value and not price. And when it comes to software for your real estate business, the best tool is the one that you love to use and the customer service that you get.
