Augmented reality has gained massive interest in the eyes of the tech community in the past couple of years. Not just the tech industry, even the real estate industry is having some second thoughts on the concept of VR and how can it be used to sky-rocket your real estate business.
First, let’s consider this. You are sitting in a café and your agent hands you a VR handset. You plug that in, and you magically teleport to Miami. You’re in a house, you can feel the breeze, the lights, the beautiful view from your window. You start taking a walk. The dazzling halogen headlights are there in your dining room.
Virtual Reality in Your Real Estate Business
You’re moving towards the ground floor when you hear your agent calling your name. You focus on the voice and everything starts disappearing. You’re back in your room. What did just happen? You just experienced one flavor of VR. In the coming years, you will be seeing a shift in the way we use technology. Here are some of the ways that VR will be affecting us.
The only equipment you need to take you from your sofa to the house in Miami is a VR handset. The beautiful feeling, the walls, the breeze, and the scene that is nearly impossible for humans to see.
Now, with VR, you’re able to carry the whole real estate business in your hands. Just wear the glasses and the magic will happen.
Do you remember the game Duck Hunt in Sega? Where you take a fun and hit the ducks with it. To me that was amazing. To kill ducks just by looks. The most influential thing that happened to date was this VR technology that took our breaths away. This is the same for the Second Life game as well which is the perfect example of virtual reality.
The beautiful illustrations that give people new possibilities to think upon. You can touch, feel, everything that you feel. Such an amazing experience to take you from your comfort zone to the eye-easing future house.
More Personal Connection with Client
With VR elements in the mainstream now you can connect with the clients in a more personal way. Your clients will be able to see what they are about to purchase. Not just see, feel it, and decide what they really are going for.
The best sales are when you take the feelings of your clients and intensify those feelings to create more impact. VR can do that. VR is reshaping the real estate industry.
Licensing and Legislation
When you’re offering the full-service you will be amazed at how easy things are going along. You will not be facing legal and licensing issues because licensing takes time and you can get things done without having to schedule or even come by the property. You can potentially eliminate the problems that are present in the actual sense. You can figure out the problems and do something before you step-into the legislation problems.
Most importantly you won’t be facing any management problems. Right before starting any work, you’ll be able to see what anything will turn out before you assign contractors, managers, or builders on the task.
Your communication will be effective about how the things will turn out. There will not be any occasional setbacks because you already know in advance what is about to come. Are you worried about the massive amount of work you need to do before showing the actual project to the client, well, not anymore?
With Virtual/Augmented reality you’ll be able to create your fantasy house within minutes and eliminate the amount of leg-work you need to do before you jump-into real-life problems.
To wrap it all up
As a serial Entrepreneur, I know what it feels like to cut down the cost and do things in an effective way. If you want to flourish your real estate business you need to add Virtual Reality in your business plan. No matter how little you invest, but this investment will help you in the long-run. A little investment today will help you to load off the big investment you will be doing soon.
We hope that the above-mentioned benefits will convince you to focus your VR efforts on your real estate venture. For it is not just the necessity of time, but the most urgent need of the current era.
