Tools to create virtual tours of real estate

Since the pandemic began and social distancing has been mandatory, real estate companies have resorted to new technological solutions that allow them to maintain closeness with their clients and digitally continue the procedures for the purchase and sale of real estate.


The virtual or 360 ° tours have become one of the most popular instruments because they allow seeing the inside of a property without having to go to their physical location, enabling buyers the information needed and streamlining the process. Similarly, digital modeling better known as BIM (Building Information Modeling) makes it possible to create virtual tours even before you start building a home. matterport photographer near me


Before the health contingency, the use of virtual reality in the real estate sector was already listed as a trend, an example of this is that in November of last year, the National Chamber of the Housing Development and Promotion Industry (Canada) signed an agreement with the 3D technology company BIMx, with the aim that its affiliated companies could implement it. 


Today, there are various startups dedicated to the creation of this type of service, such as the case of Floorfy, a Spanish company that announced that after confinement its customers increased by 50%. This indicates that more and more, the actors of the sector and private owners are interested in adopting new media.


On the other hand, although the use of virtual modeling software requires specialized equipment, companies such as Redfin and Matterport have launched mobile applications that allow access to this tool for anyone with a smartphone, making it possible to quickly and deeply capture data and images of space, just by pressing a button to generate a virtual 3D twin of any property.
