Tuesday, October 2, 2018
10:00 AM – 12:30 PM PST
VR Real Estate Workshop Gallery
Learn how virtual reality & 3D technology are shaping the future of real estate marketing. See how agencies and brokers can differentiate themselves using cutting-edge technology.
Participants will come away with a deep understanding of what the current property marketing trends are with frontier technology, what the costs are, what’s involved in creating content such as 3D models, 360° photo shoots, virtual tours, and cutting-edge visualizations such as virtual reality, and a number of shortcuts that we can now achieve by using technology to assist us with things that were previously cost-prohibitive (like custom floor plans). You will get hands-on experience by demoing some of the instructor’s favorite apps and spaces, and will get to learn the difference between augmented reality and virtual reality. You’ll even get to see some innovative campaigns that involve low-tech solutions that can enhance any realtors marketing offerings without huge investments.
