Is virtual reality a reality in Real Estate

As we all know technology is changing the way we live. Having been involved in the very first real estate web site in Australia I can tell you technology in our industry has come a long way. The information available to buyers looking for property has dramatically increased with technology being the main driver of this.

A glimpse into the future of buying a home would suggest that it will not be long before buyers will be walking through the open home from the comfort of their own living room using virtual reality technology.

We have recently started marketing property using one of the 1st High Definition 360 degree cameras in Tasmania. This cutting edge camera allows the agent to take high definition video and still shots of the home. Using virtual reality head sets and a smart phone, it is already a very realistic experience looking through a home.

In the future the experience will be even more realistic with the sounds of the garden being played as you wander through the garden or even the smells of pizza cooking in the wood fire oven!

So hold onto your hats folks change is coming whether you like it or not.
