It depends on multiple factors such as the budget of your project, who is your target audience, what type of property it is, what’s your goal, etc.
We don’t recommend a virtual tour for 1 BHK homes or low budget apartments. The cost-benefit is not that higher. It is a good option for mid-range and luxury apartments, bungalows, and independent homes. If you’re an architect working with an independent homeowner, it can be useful to showcase the design and collaborate with them to finalize the project.
It can be a good option for real estate society projects to show the different apartments, views from them, society amenities, and more. We also recommend VR for commercial projects as it can be a useful tool for collaboration and testing the different work environments. So, it is a good option for a variety of projects; do your cost-benefit analysis and see if your project needs a virtual tour. If used well, it can increase sales, improve ROI, and increase satisfaction.
