BuyRentKenya.com, Kenya’s leading property portal has launched a 360 Virtual Tour app to allow agents and private sellers to create virtual tours from their mobile phones in a move expected to help property agents in the country to double their sales and increase their revenues.
Speaking exclusively to TechMoran, Jamie Pujara, CEO and Founder of BuyRentKenya.com said, “It is no secret that having a virtual tour improves the customer experience and allows a user to get a better feel for a property. The challenge in our market has been to find an affordable and convenient solution. We have many providers who can offer the service but it’s usually unaffordable at a mass scale”
“Through our partners Spectando Virtual Tours and Cato Solutions we have been able to deliver an amazing app that will allow users to take virtual tours from their handheld devices at a very affordable price.”
Jamie added that virtual tours will greatly improve listings and agents and private sellers who incorporate virtual tours in their listings can expect a 60% increase of time spent on the listing which will result in better quality leads. Before the virtual tours, property buyers would also come back from more images after the initial inquiry.
These will save both time and increase leads and sales revenue for both agents and property developers.
The process is self explanatory, download the app, login and follow the instructions to add a new property and room. Then follow the instructions to rotate the phone around the room. Users will receive a link whereby they are able to edit the tour and then publish it. For those looking for a higher end solution we have the option to have them use their DSLR cameras to provide an even more stunning tour.
