Virtual home tours have surged in popularity, especially during the pandemic, and self-tours even more so. Toura Home is not only looking to capitalize on that but push the sector forward with a revolutionizing process.
Whereas real estate portals work with proptech providers and visual capture companies to offer virtual tours through different avenues, Toura Home is a one-stop-shop for self-tours. Toura Home works alongside brokerages to offer a secure, efficient, and convenient way to book a self-tour of a property online.
Toura Co-Founder Jeremy Gamble explained:
"Today's buyers want convenience. When they find a home, they want to schedule a showing online, at a time that works for them. If they can tour it instantly, that's even better. Toura makes that possible."
What sets Toura apart from the rest is how it works with MLS. With this type of offer, most of the time, the company forces the user to choose its own system to find listings. Toura allows for its users to tour with an agent or completely by themselves, appealing to the “traditional buyers and the tech-savvy DIY buyers,”
For sellers, they are in complete control of showing request approvals. Toura offers identifying verification protocols as a layer of safety for the self-tour process.
For agents, Toura closes deals quicker and easier. The process allows for quick bookings that lead to more showings and faster sales with opportunities to earn both sides of the commission.
