Virtual Viewings

123estateAgents is delighted to offer Virtual Viewings to all of our sales properties. This innovative 3D property technology allows prospective buyers to immerse themselves with a virtual walk through of each of our properties 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, whilst in the comfort of their home, work or wherever they may be.

 How is it created?

A Virtual Viewing is a 3D image of your property that can be viewed in a virtual reality system. Using the latest Matterport cameras, we are able to provide the most accurate digital representation of your property. The camera’s multiple sensors measure each room’s spatial depth and distance and construct a 3D model where each room can be walked through with a 360° orientation.

Why use Virtual Viewings?

Our statistics show that it takes 25 viewings per property to sell a home. A Virtual Viewing is produced just once at the outset, thus creating an online ‘viewing ready’ property which is available 24 hours a day. This will ultimately filter out those viewings which have no potential and reduces the time necessary to prepare for each viewing.

What do you need to do to prepare?

On average the 3D virtual viewing tour set up will take around 2 hours to be scanned by the cameras. Before the visit the property ideally needs to be prepared as if you have a viewing and we are happy to provide some practical house doctoring tips in advance. The Matterport cameras take a 360° scan of each room, so it is important that the room is as de-cluttered as possible with valuables removed and ideally there should be no guests or pets visiting whilst filming is taking place.

The full 3D experience

The end product is a 3D walkthrough of each room and space, enabling buyers or tenants to fully explore a property; entering and exiting rooms, going up and downstairs and entering outdoor spaces, such as terraces and gardens. The scans also create an accurate 3D dolls house version of the floor plan. The Virtual Viewing will be supported in all browsers and will be hosted on 123 Estate Agents web site and all four major property portals, Rightmove, Zoopla, OnTheMarket and Primelocation.

3D Virtual Viewings can be viewed on any digital device and also through 3D headsets for a more immersive experience.
