Real Estate Tip of the Week: Setting up 3D Home Tours
As a real estate agent, it’s essential for you to stay relevant and at the top of your game at all times. The real estate market has fared well with staying up-to-date with technology, but Zillow has helped push access into real estate agents’ hands now more than ever.
With Zillow’s newest app – Zillow 3D Home – real estate agents can capture virtual tours of listings with their iPhone.
And guess what? It’s free.
Agents can capture their entire house within 15-20 minutes. The app captures 360-degree panoramic images and on-screen instructions provide guidance for replicating the best images. After the real estate agent has followed the directions, the app will create the video and have it immediately accessible in the “My 3D Home” dashboard to edit, share, or add to a listing on Zillow.
Zillow’s Senior Director of Product Development, 3D and Computer Vision, Josh Weisberg, comments: “Previously, 3D tours were only found on high-end or expensive homes, due to the high cost and time-intensive capture process. Now with 3D Home, adding an immersive experience to a home listing is fast, easy, and free, which benefits buyers and sellers at all price points.”
For now, the app seems to only be available to iPhone users.
If you’re a real estate agent, then you know how important and life-changing this app can be! 3D tours can get more eyes on your listing and can offer a new way for potential buyers to visualize themselves in the home.
So, get to downloading and get to 3D”ing”! The Zillow app is described more here.
