Turkish realty platform Milliyetemlak.com is excited to announce that properties on its site can now be viewed in virtual reality.
Using Matterport technology, the site, which is visited by over 5 million people a month, will offer a number of options to ensure customers can get a feel for how properties appear by simply putting on a pair of VR glasses.
Through the VR lens
Customers will be able to view floor plans, interior views and mockup views through the realm of virtual reality when they browse properties for both purchase and lease. Those who own Samsung Gear or Google Cardboard can experience the virtual reality directly while those who don't, can check out the viewing options at Milliyetemlak.com.
Müge Seymen, General Manager of Milliyetemlak.com, said VR will completely transform the way that customers interact with property listings.
“We are confidently progressing as the technology leader in our sector, focusing on innovation," Seymen said.
"We care about, and empathize with, the real estate consultant, project owner and the end user, applying an adaptable approach to determine their requirements and provide a solution. We consider our VR project to be an important part of such an approach. This provides an opportunity to view an image that allows a 360-degree view. The Matterport technology allows users the freedom to move as if they are actually inside the property. Our project marks an important first in its own field from this perspective as well.”
Convenience and the VR experience
The ability for customers to browse properties efficiently is an invaluable component of VR, Seymen said in a press statement.
“With this important technological platform, users will be able to identify properties with attractive qualities, saving them unnecessary travel time in their already busy daily lives. Separately, the advertisers will be able to showcase their real estate in a more detailed and effective manner. At Milliyetemlak.com, we are proud to begin an age of viewing and purchasing real estate using VR glasses in our sector. Through innovations such as this, we will continue to lead our sector with new projects based on intelligence and innovation, and we will offer additional value to the lives of all of our users.”
