What is a Virtual Tour?
Firstly, the phrase “virtual tour” is often used to describe a variety of videos and photographic-based media.

Virtual Tour in Real Estate.
Virtual tours are becoming very popular in the real estate industry. Several types of such tours exist, including simple options such as interactive floor plans, and more sophisticated options such as full-service virtual tours. An interactive floor plan shows photographs of a property with the aid of a floor plan and arrows to indicate where each photograph was taken. Clicking on arrows shows the user where the camera was and which way the camera was pointing, among many other viewing options!
How Can I Create A Virtual Tour?
Here are the five (5) easy steps to create a Virtual Tour to sell your house – FAST!
- Find the Right Equipment & Software
Once you find a virtual tour software you want to use, consider your 360-degree or HDSLR camera. Choose a camera that gives you the features you need without much excess functionality. Too many options, buttons, or settings can complicate photo shoots.
- Create a Room List of Images & Shots.
When you find a good spot in each room, pretend you are the camera and think about the best place to stand to highlight the features of that room. It is important to make a list of every room in the house that you want in your virtual tour.
- Prepare the Room & Camera for the Test Shot
Level the tripod to make sure the camera is steady, clear away obstructions, and test remote operation of your equipment. Be sure that there is enough lighting to make the features of the room stand out. Take a few photos to make sure you are getting the shots you want and review to select the best view!
- Create Your Virtual Tour with the Apps
Make a virtual tour by uploading your selected images to the software you’ve chosen earlier. and adding extra features like transitioning between screens, clickable hotspots, mouse movements, audio voiceover, and music.
- Share Your Virtual Tour.
Once you finish your virtual tour, it is highly recommended that you at least add the virtual tour to your website and send traffic to it via paid advertising from Google or Facebook. Virtual Tours are made for these purposes anyway!
