View properties from home - with virtual tours

The corona pandemic is forcing many industries, such as gastronomy, retail or service providers, to develop new distribution channels. This necessity can also be felt in the real estate industry. Especially in the field of virtual tours, an increased interest of sellers and buyers can therefore be observed at present. The advantages in times of COVID-19 are obvious: Instead of viewing a property on site, the digital tour provides a digital impression, which you can view from the comfort of your own home. In the following we will tell you what is behind the technology and why sellers should rely on this technology right now:

Hamburg - Property viewing despite corona crisis? No problem, thanks to virtual tours! Find out what is behind the current trend:

What is a digital tour?

A digital tour is basically a virtual, three-dimensional image of your property. For this purpose, each room is scanned individually in advance. The scans are then merged to create a complete 3d image model. Virtual property viewing offers many possibilities: The property can then be explored just as if you were viewing it on site - with the difference that you can do all this from the comfort of your home. Information boards can be displayed in the virtual property to present visitors with additional facts about the property - for example, where underfloor heating is installed, what glazing was used for the windows or which direction the bedroom faces. The digital image of the property can either be made available to all visitors as part of the online exposé or shared with selected interested parties as a link via email. Interested parties then view the property either on screen or immersively using VR glasses. 

How do digital tours work? 

For sellers, the effort involved in creating a digital tour is minimal: all they need to do is make their property presentable. All technical processes, i.e. the scanning of the property, data processing and the making available of the digital viewing, are handled by the Engel & Völkers real estate agent. For this purpose, our real estate expert scans the interior of your property with the help of a modern 360° camera in order to subsequently process the data on his computer. The entire scanning process only takes a few hours.   

What advantages does the digital tour offer?

The most obvious advantage of digital tours is safety: Instead of holding personal viewings, which currently may only be carried out under strict safety conditions, the virtual property can be made accessible to a large number of interested parties in a short time. In addition to safety, the virtual tour thus brings significant time savings and at the same time a larger target group for the seller. Therefore, this is currently most certainly the best method to market a property digitally.
