Survey: Most consumers want VR home tours
Home shoppers are embracing virtual reality, saying they believe the technology will make the buying and selling process simpler and quicker, according to a new Coldwell Banker survey. Sixty-two percent of the more than 3,000 respondents to the survey said they would choose a real estate agent who offers VR house tours over one who does not. Further, 77 percent said they desire to take a VR house tour before seeing a property in person.
Beyond the home-shopping experience, survey respondents also say they are excited about VR applications to help them visualize how furniture would fit into a home.
