VRheadsetWhen selling a home or condo that has yet to be built, the tried and true thing to do is to provide renderings that illustrate what the property will be like.  Virtual tours that allow a person to pan around around a room have also proved popular, but they still provide a limited feel for what a pre-construction project will be like.  When developers are trying to sell units within a building costing millions of dollars, it’s important to try and show a buyer or investor as close to a real world experience as possible.

You may have heard of the just released Oculus Rift, the Samsung Gear VR, or the upcoming HTC Vive.  Each of these technologies provide virtual reality experiences thanks to a headset that immerses a person into a scene and allows them to explore a property as if they were actually there.  Builders and developers are taking note of the technology and thanks to its robust capabilities, a developer could feasibly provide or create a virtual reality rendering of each unit within a building.  This can be incredibly useful for international buyers whose time is limited.
