New! Virtual Tours

Welcome to C21Colonial VR - Century 21 Colonial's Virtual Tour Platform! 

 

When it comes to marketing listings, we like to take things to the next level. Literally. We are excited to offer our clients a fully-loaded virtual tour experience in the Prince Edward Island real estate market!*

What Does 3D/360/VR Mean? 

Good question! Our property virtual tour experience comprises of three parts:

1) 3D model (called a "Doll House") of the property.

2) 360° virtual tour that allows you to look floor to ceiling in 360 degrees and move from point to point to tour the property in available rooms.  

3) VR or Virtual Reality is the next level of the 360 tour. One can use VR goggles* to get a more in-depth experience in the home. You'll feel like you're actually in the house! 

 

Why 3D/360/VR?

Essentially, our virtual experience allows you to take your property shopping to the next level. 

  • ​Allows interested parties to have an unique experience to get a first hand look at a property from the convenience of their own home.
  • Public can visit a property 24/7 (an open house that is always available).
  • Allows the viewer to get a better lay of the land, see the space in more true form (floor to ceiling viewing).
  • It's a fun new way to market a property! 3D/360 Tours/VR is an attractive new technology, which is gaining a lot of attention.
