The use of virtual reality is not just a trend, but a way of life for the future. Technological changes have historically influenced commercial real estate - and virtual reality is no exception. Analysts at NAI Global have described how virtual reality is changing commercial real estate.
It is often difficult to convey your vision of space to your team. Not all people can present a finished product only from drawings created by architects.
"We aimed to show brokers and tenants what the finished product would look like," says Pike Pike, senior vice president of a company engaged in virtual reality implementation for real estate. "They saw how virtual reality technologies are used in other areas of business, and they decided that it's time to involve them in ours."
This is perhaps the most useful aspect of virtual reality for commercial real estate.
Sometimes it is impossible to convince a troubled entrepreneur to come to the site, not to mention a whole group of people at the same time. This is especially true for international clients.
Now, instead of going through the whole city or sending an assistant to another country to see the building, you can inspect the property from anywhere.
Companies such as Matterport use photos of the property to create 3-D models that offer users a panoramic view of the property.
Photos and videos have already become an integral part of the sale of real estate. In addition, the use of drones makes it possible to see the object "from a new angle."
Technological advances continue to change commercial real estate: websites, email, SEO, social networks ... and now virtual reality.
If there is a new way to get closer to people using technology, then this technology will in any case be used in commercial real estate. And, of course, in such a competitive market, companies are always looking for new ways to get ahead of competitors.
