A live virtual tour is different than a Matterport or a staged pre-recorded video.  A live virtual tour is a face to face presentation with potential buyers and or their selling agents.  These are a great way to keep buyers and sellers safe from COVID-19 while also presenting and answering questions about your listing live.  When virtual open houses are entered into Paragon, the tour feeds to syndication portals and online tools.  Check out the online marketing for this listing being presented by PSAR member (and YPN Chair)  Amber Tannehill.  For step by step instructions to set these up, follow the link at the bottom of the page called Learn How to Market Virtual Tours.

Your virtual open house will feed to Homesnap, Zillow and other online tools so home home shoppers and fellow agents can find your tour and interact with your listing safely from the confines of their own home.  Schedule your Virtual Tour on your favorite online video conferencing tools so potential buyers and selling agents can schedule a tour with you and discuss your listing live.

This is what the marketing looks like on a few of the common consumer portals. open house tool
