Virtual house tours use technology that allows buyers detailed, up-close tours of any property from anywhere.

Virtual house tours provide better buyer experiences, happier sellers, and faster sales at higher prices!

These easy-to-create virtual tours extend access, making it simple for busy buyers or buyers at a distance to carefully and closely see a property. 

So, in this blog post, we’ll show you the 8 best virtual house tours of 2023. But before we dive in and look at the top providers, let’s explore what is a virtual home tour.

What Are Virtual House Tours?

Virtual tours allow potential buyers to view a home through a 3D video/photo tour, making it feel like they’re really walking through the house while sitting in the comfort of their own home or their favorite coffee shop.

This technology became more popular during the COVID shutdowns for safety reasons — but now it’s here to stay because buyers and sellers love these tours. 

For example, consider just some of the benefits to both buyers and sellers: 

  • Buyers don’t have to spend the time and effort of seeing every home in person, making it easier to narrow their search 
  • Meanwhile, sellers don’t have to constantly have their house in pristine condition, ready to show at any moment’s notice
  • And even better, virtual house tours allow the sales agent to guide the tour, calling out the home’s best features

Not convinced yet? How about this — a recent Quicken Loans study found that almost half of potential buyers would make an offer on a home sight unseen if a virtual home tour was available.

A virtual tour helps you reach a larger pool of potential buyers. As more buyers sort through listings whenever and from wherever a virtual tour can help your home’s listing get more views.

Therefore, these tours benefit all parties involved, including prospective buyers, sellers, and you as the sales agent.

One last important note. You need to purchase a Matterport 3D camera for nearly all their services — and the camera starts at around $300.

One side note, their website uses sales terms such as “Big Holiday Sale,” “Huge Discounts,” and “Awesome Bargains,” and a count-down clock for some of these specials. I kept wondering if I accidentally ended up on Walmart’s website.
