You have a luxury villa for sale situated near the Mediterranean sea. From the terrace there is a breathtaking panoramic view of the sea. Or maybe you have an inland 2-bedroom apartment with mountainous views which is a holiday home you want to rent out. Both very different property types but both worthy of showing every detail and corner. You can accomplish this with professional photography, videography and a 360 virtual tour.
What is 360 degree virtual tour?
A 360 virtual tour is a collection of images in a spherical format that can be opened online and in a browser screen to give the illusion of actually being present at the place of where to photographs have been taken.
To move in the space, one clicks with the mouse pointer on a position to drag the spherical image to where the viewer wants to go. If the viewer wants to move from one space to another, there are hotspots or nodes on the image (clickable pixels) that will load a new spherical image.
By dragging the images around and clicking on nodes to move to alternative spaces, the viewer has an immersive experience. The walkthrough is similar to what you can see on Google Maps or Google street view: you click on an arrow to move to the next spherical image.

How does it help sell a property?
During the selling process the buyer and the seller (or the realtor) need to pay multiple visits to the property. This is necessary for the buying party to get a good idea of the residential property or commercial property. This is a considerable investment in time and/or money. In some cases, the client lives abroad and does not have the option to get to a property within a reasonable amount of time. No more need for the client to fly into Alicante airport.
The immersive experience of virtual reality and 360 images will give the client, and people around them, the experience of actually visiting the object even if they are living on the other side of the globe. So much more so than for example a panorama image that many professional photographers use or mobile phone panoramic photography (iphones and other smart phone have this option).
The 360 virtual tours are self guided tour, can be done at their own pace and can be done as often as the buyer wants to take a tour. It would be similar to have a 24/7 open house experience and no tour guide needed.
How can a client view a 360 walk through?
Clients can view the real estate directly full screen on their desktop computer, laptop computer, tablet or mobile device without having to install additional virtual tour software. No login is required, no special virtual reality software needed. All standard web browsers (like Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer) work with the. No vr headset needed to take a virtual tour. This makes it very easy and accessible. The interface is clean, self-explanatory and simple. The tour can be personalised and branded with your logo.
Can I have a 360 tour on my website?
Yes. In general every website can integrate the online virtual tour. You do not need special virtual reality software. One of the requirements is that you have access to your webhosting control pannel. Any technical help needed for the initial setup is available and your hosting service can help with the initial setup.
How much does it cost?
Pricing depends on the size of the property or object. Pricing starts at EUR 170 excl IVA. Special offers available for bulk packages or packages that include professional photography (still images) or a video tour.
How soon can I have a virtual walk through made?
We need approximately 1-2 hours to shoot the tour and half a day to edit the images (no panorama stitching needed) and upload to the server. After discussing your requirements, we can schedule a visit.
