Technology has changed how realtors take photos of the outside of your home.
Now the inside is getting the same treatment virtually.
And you can see everything, this is so cool.
Apartments.com is testing virtual reality tools of some listings and demonstrated it at a conference in San Francisco.
I think that that would help definitely sell whatever apartment we needed to sell.
Yeah, for sure.
Using an HTC Vive headset with hand controllers potential renters can explore rooms, and even look around corners.
VR is very different than the HD videos that we have.
While they are great, and they're very slick and produced, Apartment renters really wanna tour the space at their own leisure.
The site is also offering 55,000 listings with 3D tours that can be viewed in a Samsung Gear VR headset.
Without the headset you can still view the 360 tours online.
Properties are scanned using a 3D camera made by Matterport.
We get back a 3D mesh of the apartment, along with the photogrammetry and panoramic views of the apartment space.
Sotheby's in Los Angeles is currently using VR and the Oculus headset to sell luxury properties.
One buyer in Dubai used VR to buy a property similar to this one in New Hampshire without actually seeing it in real life.
It's all part of a bigger trend towards virtual realty.
