Buying or selling a home while in the midst of a global pandemic might seem like a stressful process, but it doesn’t have to feel that way. Virtual and augmented reality technologies are completely changing the way agents at Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty are helping their clients buy and sell properties.
With Sotheby’s International Realty being the first real estate brand to launch and implement a virtual staging app, Curate, homebuyers can now visualize a home as their own before they even purchase it! Through the power of augmented reality, the app takes virtually staged images from a flat 2D screen into the house itself so consumers can envision their lives in a new home all from their smartphones. A new homeowner can also utilize this app to help design and purchase new furnishings for their home.
In addition to Curate, there are a number of other incredible technologies and services that agents at Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty are using to ease the process of buying and selling a home. These include Matterport, which offers 3D virtual reality tours of a home so clients can virtually walk through an entire home without ever having to physically enter it, and RoOomy, a virtual staging service that helps a property to appeal to many different tastes by having a number of design options to choose from.
One of our agents, Brett Dickinson, who is based in Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty’s La Jolla office, is using virtual and augmented reality to ensure his clients have the best experience possible during this pandemic. Below are a couple of his current listings that can be viewed and experienced remotely via augmented reality technologies!
