More news pertaining to virtual tour popularity spike. Idealista has launched a new service that goes beyond just 3D virtual tours, offering a more complete and personalized experience.
Called Videovista, the service offers both prospective homebuyers and agents alike, a way to virtually tour a property without leaving their office or living room. More than one user can tour a single property at the same time, saving time and scheduling issues for all parties involved.
Luca Frassi, Co-CEO of Idealista Italia told sources:
"Videovisita allows up to 12 connections to be hosted on the platform, so in the case of connections with more people, the number of people involved also increases. So the real estate agent can organize real open houses with potential buyers who visit the property simultaneously and the user to involve professionals to be advised.”
Videovista does more than just facilitate virtual tours, it offers a way to generate customers for agents by differentiating them from competitors by offering a market-first product that is not only technologically advanced but with safety in mind.
Frassi further explained:
"It was obviously born to respond to the need for social distancing due to Covid but our idea is that like many tools that have spread in this period, from video calls to online shopping, it will become a standard because it has been tried and used and used more out of necessity than out of will, but it has convenience and advantages that will make it a tool of normal use.”
This isn’t idealista’s first move towards a more contactless real estate process, as it recently launched a completely digital contract tool in order to promote social distancing while also optimizing its offerings to be simple, efficient, and more convenient.
