Independence, Ohio— September 7, 2016 —Property Panorama reports that nearly 60% of the 1,632,029 who viewed Property Panorama's InstaView virtual tours over the last month are “unique visitors”, a ratio of unique to total visitors that’s 6 times greater than the average ratio generated by any third party vendor to an MLS.
Virtual Tour products have always been couched as a luxury home presentation and marketing tool. Static images come to life in theatrical style as home tours are published through IDX websites, property portals, social media sites, and YouTube. The impact of this distribution has made a profound impact on the effectiveness of online marketing that far surpasses the benefits of adding sizzle to a listing. As it turns out, tours are impacting overall traffic volume and driving higher visits per listing.
Not all Virtual Tours are equal.
“MLSs and Brokers have begun to recognize that some tour providers like Property Panorama have the added benefit of attracting a wider audience because of automated delivery to social media and other applications,” states Mike Barnett, CEO, Property Panorama.
"Automating virtual tours is a key service we provide to our subscribers," says Carl DeMusz, CEO NORMLS. "Our automated virtual tour solution ensures that an agent's listing is always displaying the current listing price, photos, and status on whatever social media site or customer the listing gets syndicated or forwarded to, solving a big problem for our agents and their listings."
“Our other Internet marketing vendors generate a ratio of unique to total visitors of less than 10%. Our data indicates that more than 60% of the visitors from InstaView are unique, 6 times more than the average vendor,” DeMusz stated.
"We continue to see the largest number of unique visitors to our listings being driven by our automated InstaView virtual tour solution," said Ray Ewing, CEO, SANDICOR, “and we are always assured that the tour content is up to date regardless of where it is displayed on the Internet."
“Property Panorama demonstrates the highest ratio of unique listing views compared to all third party vendors in nearly all markets ListTrac measures metrics in,” said Trent Gardner, Listtrac CEO.
