Virtual Reality (VR) for the Property & Real Estate Industry

In the property and real estate industry, Virtual Reality (VR) presents an extraordinary opportunity for home builders to transform the way they showcase and market their properties. With VR, builders can create immersive virtual display homes, eliminating the need for physical, real world, display home. This saves costs, time, and resources while providing an incredibly realistic and interactive experience for potential buyers. VR also enables home builders to bring 2D off-plan designs to life, allowing clients to explore and visualise their future homes in a three-dimensional space. This enhances spatial awareness and fosters an emotional connection, helping clients envision themselves living in the property. By harnessing the power of VR, home builders & real estate agents can revolutionise the way they present properties, streamline the sales process, and deliver unparalleled customer experiences in the ever-evolving real estate market.

How VR is is being used in the property & real estate industry

Virtual property showcases

Clients generally need to see several properties before making their decision to buy. A VR walkthrough means buyers can see multiple, carefully selected properties without having to leave their homes. Realtors can give guided tours through the property either through a fully immersive VR experience or a 360 pano tour. Buyers can view multiple VR properties in an hour, rather than spending a whole day driving around the city.

Off-plan visualisation

Selling off-plan can bring challenges. Choosing to show a VR apartment or VR house means clients can experience their potential new home or business premises in an immersive, impactful way. They can imagine themselves living and working in the space, highlight any concerns and be shown immediate solutions. VR real estate can become the client’s home, almost immediately.

Personalised buying experience

VR gives agents the chance to offer a personalised buying experience. Home staging can be maximised by showing the VR building with a client’s preferred style of interiors or showing a business with the complete retail set-up or office design. As well as making property incredibly easy to sell, this kind of experience fosters positive relationships between the buyer and agent, creating clear and open communication.
