Do-it-yourself Virtual Tours

Posted by larrylohrman on February 17, 2006

Do-it-yourself Virtual Tours are an easy, inexpensive way to get started using virtual tours. For from $30 to $50 for each tour you provide the photos and the Virtual Tour vendor provides the tour template and hosting for as long as your listing is on the market. One of my favorites is tourfactory.com.

I think the big benefit of using Virtual Tours is providing 180 or 360 degree photos. These panoramic type of photos give the viewer with a better sense of the space. The type of 360 photos used for these Virtual Tours are easy to shoot and don’t require any specialized equipment. Just shoot a series of overlapping photos and stitch them together with software like PhotoVista. You then upload the result just like a regular photo.
