Ideas for Real Estate Agents Showing Properties Using Old School Video Tours

From the staff at AccuTour 3D virtual real estate photography in South Florida, here are some tips for you Real Estate Agents when doing a property showing via video. 

Although AccuTour’s 3D Virtual tours do not have music included inside the embed code, it’s not a bad idea to listen to some tunes while watching one of those old school virtual tour videos.

No doubt there are millions of tools on the market today for realtors to increase their customer service.  One of the latest innovations that is stealing the hearts of both realtors and homeowners is that of 3D Virtual Tours.  This latest technology dates back to 1994 and was used for the reconstruction of the Dudley Castle located in England.  Today, not only is this a hot commodity among luxury property brokers and real estate agents, it’s also been used for architectural projects, office buildings, events and exhibitions.  With these many different applications, often times the customers and the person deploying the tour will ask if there should be a musical background playing while a person is taking a tour. Here are some tips on how to decide if a music bed should be added to your tours that might help.

Remember that this technology is mostly used to enhance the viewers experience.  It’ a multimedia, interactive, panorama entity that changes the face of how potential clients, investors and other key players view a specific location or building.  By offering your clients the opportunity to endure both visually and hearing, you’re taking the viewership to a different level. 

Get the client involved. Give them the choice for music to be added and have them pick out the tone or genre they like.  As long as it’s not rap or something inappropriate, there is a wide selection of backgrounds that are perfect for the home, office or any other property.

Make it interactive like the tour is by giving them options.  You can always have the tour created with an audio button for the sound to be turned on or off.  This gives your viewer the control for turning off the audio if they care to do so.  Remember by having a nice music bed playing in the background during the tour, you fill in the dead space and keep them engaged while they’re walking through the tours.

Music Selection:

Use license free music and nothing from the top forties. In other words, there are plenty of companies that produce license free music that can be found online. Freeplay and Easy Pano are two great sites to check out for this type of enhancement.  The editors know that they must use music that is legal to use without stepping on anyone’s intellectual property.  Spend time listening to some tracks and you’ll soon find that they as unique as a fingerprint. 

The right music shows the home’s personality and character.  It also helps avoid static and continues to entice the client into wanting more. While luxury property videos tend to have mostly music in the Jazz and Classical genres, new age or lounge without vocals is another nice selection.  The last thing you want to do is bore them with elevator music and there’s plenty of musicians out there that want their music to be heard even if it is all instrumental.

By leaving the choice to include music in the video and selecting the proper track that helps to heighten the levels of interest in your tour, you’ll not only give the viewers an adventure, you’ll give them a magnified way of looking at their world.
