The Advantage of 3D Virtual Tours

Featured

There is new technology making it easier to view homes without ever stepping foot on the property.  These Matterport cameras can take 360 degree shots of almost every room in a home and make you feel like you are there experiencing a tour.  You can easily follow the marks and move through a home, see the views, details and flow all from your computer, tablet or phone.  It is adding a piece for Sellers to market and creating a new way for Buyers to engage their interest and potentially make the decision to buy a property.

Our latest listing to go on the market is a 4,000 sqft, 4 bedroom/3.5 bath, 3 level home in Old Town Mukilteo with stunning Sound, ferry and sunset views and even an elevator!  The dollhouse model can provide Buyers a complete picture of this home from every angle; they can see into any room or look at the floor plan of each level laid out and they can view it as many times as they want without time constraints or the pressure of taking everything in at once.  Take a look at 634 Park Ave., Mukilteo online. If after taking the virtual tour, you’re interested in the home or have qualified buyers, and would like to schedule an in person tour, please let me know.
