Augmented reality is a cost effective way to allow potential home buyers to tour a property without ever stepping foot in it. Of course, nothing will ever beat the real deal, but AR is especially helpful in terms of helping clients think about how their potential new home might look with a few updates--or even their own existing furniture. Here are just some of the benefits of using AR in your real estate practice.
1. Increased Perceived Value It’s been proven that staged, high quality, two-dimensional photographs can increase perceived value. So, it only stands to reason that a multi-dimensional virtual reality tour will add even more perceived value.
2. Hosting Virtual Reality Open Houses Especially if you’re selling your home yourself, you may be trying to host open houses while still living in your home. Virtual reality (VR) headsets are an awesome way to host an open house either in a part of our property, or at an entirely different location. And who doesn’t love a headset and a new experience? What an incredibly fun spin on the old standby, the open house. Virtual wine not included.
3. AR and VR Appealing to Millennials Millennials are about to become a major part of the homebuying market, and as a generation that grew up with interactive technology, they’re ready to embrace a homebuying experience that features AR and VR.
