The virtual tour landscape has significantly changed pre pandemic and post pandemic. Where 360 virtual tours were once seen as more of a fad and just one of the marketing techniques that the real estate industry regularly deploys, it is now a tool that home seekers expect when they view a new property launch.
During the pandemic, when showflats weren’t allowed to open, developers had to deploy such virtual tours to give themselves at a least a chance of selling something. There was some measure of success as a small number of units were transacted through virtual viewings only.
Fast forward to today, virtual tours have been a mainstay in developer’s latest new launches. Virtual tours are also more visible now in resale listings as agents continue to use virtual tours to filter and minimise viewings. The general public is also now more aware of the availability of such technologies that they would ask agents to use some of these tools to filter property viewers as as to minimise disruption to their lives. This serves to pressure the agents to accede to their clients wishes and not just conduct viewings for the sake of getting leads without properly gauging the interest level.
Among the virtual tour providers that serve this critical function, one of the companies that has been an ever-present, even well before the pandemic struck, is V360Property. Since 2014, V360Property has been servicing property agents in Singapore with quality 360 virtual tours taken with professional cameras and equipment, and not just with a consumer-end 360 camera.
Despite the entry of numerous newcomers to the scene and the adoption of Matterport technologies, V360Property or V360Singapore as they would like to be known today, continues to serve a strong core group of loyal customers that prefer quality over price. They currently also provide content in other ways such as profile and listing videos, alongside the V360 virtual tours that they are known for.
One of their newer services, the 3D V360 Virtual tour, provides a strong alternative to Matterport tours. Similarly, they have a generated 3D model dollhouse view and also provide room measurements in sqm or sqft. One of the key advantages of using the 3D V360 Virtual tour is the ability to generate a traditional 2D floorplan by just hiring their team. This is immensely beneficial to property agents selling old homes that the floorplans could not be found anywhere. SG Floorplans regularly have such requests for old floorplans which are almost impossible to source as there wasn’t a digital presence or strong need to look at floor plans in those days. During that era, when homebuyers wanted to buy homes, they simply turn up!
If you find yourself in such a predicament, do consider using 3D V360 virtual tours to generate the 2D Floorplan as well as give a beautiful visual presentation of the property to your potential clients.
