It’s never been more difficult to market sheltered housing, nursing homes, and residential care homes. Not only is the danger of Covid an ongoing problem, but often, a lot of travel is required and visits need to be done at certain times. However, there is a solution that allows visits to be made at any time of the day, from anywhere in the world, any without any extra danger of contracting or spreading Covid!
A virtual tour or 3D walkthrough allows potential buyers or residents to view and explore accommodation easily and quickly from the comfort of their own home, at any time, from wherever they are in the world. All you need is a smartphone with a mobile data connection or computer with broadband and you can explore in as much detail as you want. the virtual tours are very high definition and can be included seamlessly within any website. They’re easy to control – use a mouse, touch-screen, or keyboard – and information can be included to create a virtual guided tour.
Here at 360 Virtual View (based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire & Bakewell, Derbyshire) Our virtual tours and range of other services can also provide everything you need for a ‘virtual open day’. Here area few examples:
