How to Feature Real Estate Properties in Virtual Reality

Oculus-rift-vr-headsetAre you trying to figure out the unusual landscape of virtual reality and how to use it in your real estate business? For most people, they haven’t had the opportunity to experience Virtual Reality, but they will get their chance soon as the technology goes mainstream.

Virtual home tours, as they have existed for many years, have mainly been panoramic images that are static photos and displayed in a web browser only.  The next generation of virtual tours is 360 degree videos which can be viewed on both a web browser and through Virtual Reality headsets.  In March of 2015, Youtube debuted their 360 Degree videos channel.
