360 Virtual Staging is the newest craze. Most cameras now have a 360 feature that enables people to take full circle panorama images. It’s no wonder this technology is catching on in real estate as well. As with 2D Photography, there is a need to enhance and edit the photos to make them presentable for listings.
Blue-Sketch has been perfecting our 2D Virtual Staging capabilities over the years and are now proud to announce we can offer the same extremely high technical quality of staging also for 360 panoramas. Take a tour in this digitally staged home and see for yourself.
Who would use this and why?
If you log onto Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com or any listing site you are bound to see videos, 3D walkthroughs and Virtual Tours. Technology providers include Zillow 3D Home, Matterport, iGuide, just to name few.
Zillow 3D allows anyone with an iPhone to download an app and create 360 tours. Once you capture the entire home and upload your panoramas to Zillow, the app creates a seamless tour that you can preview, edit and share privately or attach to a Zillow listing. These tours can be uploaded to Zillow with your other listing materials such as 2D photos and floor plans. Zillow listings that feature 3D Home tours get priority in search results.
According to the 2018 Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends Report, 41% of millennial buyers find 3D tours or recorded video of a home very or extremely important in helping them decide on their home. Virtual tours not only help buyers experience a home in a deeper, more immersive way, they can save time and enable buyers to only visit the homes they really want.
For reference, here is the same house empty, as it was provided to us for staging.

Depending on your technology provider you may be able to upload them with the panos of empty rooms to create a Virtual Tour that consists of both empty and staged rooms.
