Getting Started

  • What is VR and how does it work?

    VR (Virtual Reality) is a computer technology that allows users to experience an artificial environment, which can be either a fully immersive 360-degree video or computer-generated imagery. Virtual reality is the next big thing in the real estate industry. The first virtual reality headsets were shown to the public in 1968, but over time this technology has become more sophisticated and accessible.

    The way virtual reality works is that it uses human sensory input to create an artificial environment. Virtual reality headsets are used to simulate experiences by feeding video footage directly into your eyes, while also reading your head movements. It creates a 3D world for you where you can move around with your head and hands tracked by its sensors.

    With new technologies like VR, there are more opportunities for people to feel like they are in the right environment before making a decision.

  • How can VR be used in the real estate sector?
    Typically, VR is used in marketing or real estate because it can give buyers an immersive tour of a property they are interested in purchasing. This way they can experience what it would be like to live there before actually committing to buying the house.
  • What type of home is PropertyVR able to show?
    PropertyVR is able to show all types of homes.
  • What kind of devices are required for VR?
    VR is often displayed on a computer screen or with a virtual reality headset. You can also use it on your smartphone or tablet.
