L'property purchase is a complex and important process. It requires numerous decisions to be made, particularly in terms of location, budget, size and type of property. To help buyers project themselves into their future homes, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies have made their appearance in the real estate sector.


Virtual reality

Virtual reality allows users to immerse themselves in a computer-generated virtual environment. Thanks to a VR headset, the user can move freely in this environment, and interact with the objects in it.

In the real estate sector, virtual reality is used to create virtual tours of properties for sale. These tours enable buyers to walk through the rooms of an apartment or house, without having to move.

Virtual reality visits offer many advantages for buyers. They make it possible to :

  • Project yourself into your future home, and imagine your life inside it.
  • Compare different goods, without having to travel
  • Save time by avoiding physical visits

Augmented reality

Augmented reality adds digital information to the real world. Using a smartphone or tablet, users can see information about an object or place that is not visible to the naked eye.

In the real estate sector, augmented reality is used to display information about properties for sale. This information can include floor plans, photos, videos, or data on the real estate market.

Augmented reality applications offer many advantages for buyers. They enable :

  • Get complete information on a property, without having to visit the site
  • Compare different goods more intuitively
  • Research the real estate market

The impact of VR and AR technologies on real estate purchases

VR and AR technologies are having a positive impact on real estate purchases. They enable buyers to project themselves into their future home, compare different properties, and save time.

A study conducted by US company Cisin has revealed that buyers who use VR virtual tours are more likely to make an offer on a property. The study also revealed that buyers who use augmented reality applications are more likely to feel confident in their purchasing decision.

VR and AR technologies are still in development, but they have the potential to revolutionize the real estate sector. They enable buyers to make more informed decisions, and find the property that best suits their needs.
