Boston Real Estate for Sale

More than 70% of apartment renters say they would be happy to rent an apartment without seeing it in person first if they could check it out through a 3D virtual tour.

That’s according to a survey jointly commissioned by Zumper, a rental marketplace, and Matterport, which provides 3D and virtual tour services. The survey notes that just like home buyers, renters are also taking their property search online during the coronavirus pandemic, and would benefit from having more access to modern tools that allow them to view homes and sign leases without being there in person.

Beacon Hill Apartments Video Tours over Pictures

While photos of an apartment are important, the virtual or video tours component is far more useful in giving prospective tenants an idea of what it actually ‘feels’ like inside.

Video apartment tour searches have spiked since the pandemic and consequent lockdowns began, according to Google Trends data. More than 60% of renters say their apartment search experience has been negatively impacted by the pandemic. According to another survey by apartment listing site Abodo, some 30% of renters would prefer to see photos and floor plans delivered in a virtual manner. Another 27% said they would prefer to see prerecorded videos of units over live, personal unit tours.

The residential market has already turned to 3D tours and video walkthroughs during the pandemic to take buyers through properties, but the concept has been less common with rental listings up until now.
