People want to restrict their on-site visits as much as possible.
By providing virtual tours you are likely to only have pre-qualified serious buyers to your premises or home.

The host takes control of the tour and chats to prospective buyers.

Embracing the new normal
Solving Big Problems
360 virtual tours can be an excellent way to confront the challenges we all have in this ‘new normal’.
Zoom Style Guided Tours
Take control of the virtual property tour or let the client.
This pre-qualifies buyers before an in-person viewing.
What is a 360 virtual tour?
Virtual arrows, or thumbnails will direct the viewer to other rooms or positions.
Information Spots, also called Hotspots, can be added to tour to provide additional information at the touch of a button.
These may include pop-outs, links to web pages, documents etc.
How are 360 Virtual Tours photographed?
- a specialist camera with two fisheye lenses
- a dSlR with a fisheye lens mounted onto a specialist tripod
Both methods will result in very wide-angled images that are then ‘stitched’ together.
How are tours viewed?
They can be uploaded onto Rightmove, Zoopla or On The Market so that visitors to that site can view them.
Businesses can also upload images to Google Street View.
How are the images edited?
There is an additional stage whereby the edited images are stitched together by specialist software to create the 360 look.
What is a Live Guided Tour?
An estate agent will give a link to a prospective customer and once clicked on will be able to speak to and see the estate agent Zoom style.
Either the agent can control the tour, or pass control to the prospective purchaser.
This is great way to pre-qualify purchasers before an in-person viewing. And it saves on the tidying up also!
How long will the photographer be on-site?
With a small flat or house, or small business it may be as short as 30 – 45 minutes.
We would expect the property to be photo-ready when we arrive.
The editing and construction of the tour take longer than the actual photography due to the number of processes involved.
