Virtual Tours are a new, innovative way to look at houses that are for sale online. From the comfort of a person's home or office they are able to log on the Net and navigate their way through different homes that are listed for sale. Once logged on to the Web, shoppers can visit sites that offer them to enter a city name and receive hundreds of listings, complete with virtual panoramic tours of homes. This is convenient for buyers who are relocating because they do not have to make as many trips to scout out new areas.

         Virtual tours can help people eliminate properties without wasting time and money driving around town. Once a person has found a home that interests them, they may contact a real estate agent or the owner directly, if the owner is selling the property without a real estate agent, to view the property in person. Virtual tours are an aid to selling a property but buyers are not likely to purchase a property without personally inspecting it.

          This interactive research tool can be fun and exciting to use. The Internet can be convenient, helpful and intriguing, but it is not always accurate and up to date after homes sell. This can be frustrating to buyers interested in homes that appear to be on the market but have sold. Some shoppers have complained about missing or misleading photos of homes on the Internet.

"Virtual tours have been beneficial to Arvida. It gives people an idea of a house. I have gotten people to look at houses after stimulating their interests with a virtual tour. Usually after they are interested they want to go inside and see what the actual house looks like before making a decision."--Jeanne Wolfe *

"It's extremely hard to determine by a computer screen whether grandma's four poster bed you inherited will fit in the master bedroom or if the wall in the dining room will accommodate your large china hutch unless you see for yourself."--Rick Miller *
