In this article, we will discuss the game-changing features of digital twin and virtual tour technology that can help you sell more homes and drive engagement.
If you’re in the business of selling homes, then you’re aware of the crucial role first impressions play. Prospective buyers often form opinions about a property within moments of their initial viewing. This is why ensuring that your listing photos are top-notch is crucial. But what if there was a way to give potential buyers an even more enhanced view of your properties? That’s where digital twins come in.
In the realm of real estate, a digital twin refers to a virtual replica or representation of a physical property or building. It utilizes advanced technologies such as 3D modeling, data analytics, and virtual reality to create a highly accurate and detailed virtual counterpart of a real-world property. Digital twins in real estate provide a comprehensive and immersive experience for potential buyers, allowing them to explore and interact with a property virtually before making any physical visits.
Whether it’s an enhanced virtual replica of physical space or a high-quality 3D render visualization of an unbuilt space, digital twins are flipping the script on how properties are showcased and experienced. Let’s explore the key features of digital twin technology that can significantly benefit property marketing efforts!
1. 4D Virtual Tour
4D virtual tours add an extra layer of interactivity by incorporating elements such as a 720-view walkthrough, audio narration, clickable hotspots, multimedia content, and even virtual staging. This technology enables potential clients to explore the property virtually, offering the ability to experience various lighting conditions and envision potential renovations or interior design modifications. The interactive nature of 4D virtual tours captures attention and keeps viewers engaged, leading to a more positive and memorable experience.
With just a few clicks, viewers can utilize the measurement tool to gauge the size of rooms, doorways, or furniture placements. This functionality eliminates guesswork and allows individuals to envision their belongings fitting seamlessly into the space.
Additionally, you can include a schematic 2D floor plan or a 3D floor plan — adding a more in-depth perspective that makes it easier to understand the space’s spatial relationships, proportions, and flow. With 3D floor plans, potential buyers can navigate through the virtual space, zoom in and out, and explore different rooms and areas at their own pace.
3. Customisation & Touch-ups
Real estate professionals can incorporate branding elements like logos and color schemes to maintain a consistent visual identity throughout the virtual tour. Customization allows for adding interactive features that provide additional information about specific areas or features of the property.
With MetaTwin Space, you can adjust or enhance a virtual tour using its editing capabilities. For example, an undesired object or element within a room can be erased or removed from the virtual tour, providing a clean and polished presentation. This level of control ensures that the virtual tour showcases the property in the best possible way, maximizing its appeal and capturing the attention of potential buyers or tenants.
4. Scan or Render
Digital twins provide two distinct options: the ability to scan an existing place or to render a place from scratch. Scanning an existing place involves capturing detailed 360-degree images or using specialized cameras to create a virtual replica of a real property. This approach allows for an authentic representation of the actual space, showcasing its unique features and characteristics.
On the other hand, rendering a place from scratch offers the freedom to create a virtual environment tailored to specific requirements. It is perfect for showcasing development properties or offering virtual staging options. Both scanning and rendering capabilities enable potential buyers or tenants to explore properties remotely, gain a realistic sense of the space, and make informed decisions.
By introducing a virtual guide or representative, potential buyers or tenants can receive personalized assistance navigating the virtual tour. The virtual avatar can provide real-time information, answer frequently asked questions, and highlight key features of the property. This interactive element enhances engagement and creates a more dynamic and immersive user experience.
6. Live Guided Tour
An immersive live guided tour, or VR Talk, offers a dynamic and flexible way for real estate agents to showcase properties from anywhere. Through a video conferencing tool embedded in the virtual tour, agents can remotely guide a group of potential buyers or tenants through a property in real-time. They can highlight key features, answer questions, and address specific interests or concerns.
All participants have the unique opportunity to take control and actively engage with the virtual environment. They can navigate the virtual space and click on different hotspots to explore certain areas of interest.
8. Private Cloud Deployment
Imagine having a virtual tour platform impervious to external threats, ensuring that sensitive property information and precious client data remain locked and key. You can host and manage your virtual tour applications and data within a dedicated and isolated environment by utilizing a private cloud.
With the scalability of private cloud resources, real estate companies can easily accommodate increased usage and deliver a seamless virtual tour experience to a growing audience.
9. Data Analytics
The data analytics feature in digital twin technology provides you with valuable insights and metrics to optimize your marketing strategies. By collecting and analyzing user engagement data, such as the number of views, areas of interest, and dwell time, you can gauge your virtual tours’ effectiveness and identify improvement areas.
