What is a Virtual Home Tour?

Virtual home tours is an innovative approach through which prospective buyers can visit and have a look at their property from the comfort of their home. They are also known as 3D house tours. These tours are different from video listings in which the home shoppers can view property from selected angles only. Using this technology, buyers can view the entire house and explore the different parts. You have full control to see whichever room you want to see.


Thanks to technology, there are several benefits of virtual home tours that were not there before. Below we will discuss a few of them.

Convenience and Comfort:

Using this technology, you can visit the house from any corner of the world, and you don’t need to go exactly at the place. All you require is a smartphone, tablet or laptop along with a stable internet connection and you are good to go. For walkthrough real estate tours, you have to travel around town for several hours in order to visit a few different properties on the same day. So, if you were looking to buy a home, you’d likely spend a good chunk of your time navigating through traffic, finding the correct address, looking for parking space, dealing with foot traffic and much more.

Off course, visiting the property from the comfort of your home saves your time which you can invest in other things. For example, if you have multiple properties to visit, then it will take a lot of time but using this tool, you can do very easily.

Interactive and Reliable:

Virtual house tours present a realistic picture of the property and are much more reliable than viewing listing photos or videos. They are also very interactive, as the prospective buyer has full control over which part of the house they want to see and which corner to want to focus on.
