3D technology like Matterport enable buyers to get a feel for a property’s layout, while it allows sellers to easily showcase their property to anyone with the 3D virtual tour link.
With a virtual tour, users can tour the property as if they are walking through it themselves (think of Google street view) and it also givers users the ability to see a birds eye view of the property floor plan.
Although it does not replace seeing the property in person, it comes very close to doing so. If any of the properties do not catch your eye, subscribe to our new listing alerts for properties for sale with 3D virtual tours.
