The COVID-19 economy has pumped up consumer demand for virtual home tours.These presentations, created using 360-degree and 3D tour technology, provide an immersive experience for viewing homes while limiting in-person contact.Virtual tours give buyers a perspective on the home’s layout and flow that can’t be achieved with still photos, says consultant Jeff Turner of Santa Clarita, Calif.The tours help buyers weed out houses that are in their price range but that don’t fit their style, says Turner, a consultant to virtual-tour provider Immoviewer and entrepreneur in residence at Second Century Ventures and Reach, the National Association of REALTORS®’ strategic investment arm and award-winning technology accelerator.“Consumers are hungry for the opportunity to have a better online shopping experience, and to me, that’s the promise of 3D, 360-degree virtual tours.” Data shows that virtual tours drive sales, says Amir Frank, a content manager at Matterport in Sunnyvale, Calif.Compared to other media projects, virtual tours generally require more time to plan, shoot and edit because they have both media and web components.In this section of the guide, we’re going to discuss project timeframes and go into detail about what you can expect in each stage of the process.The time frame to create a virtual tour is unique to each and every project.A typical planning cycle can range from one or two days to a few weeks, depending on the shot list size and the number of stakeholders involved.Often places like a community centre will take a couple days to plan, whereas a post-secondary campus will take at minimum a few weeks.
