360° virtual reality tours are the closest thing to exploring a new home without leaving your existing one, and for those with mobility problems I guess it makes looking for your new home a lot less daunting.
We’ve been providing 360° virtual reality tours for many clients and it’s one of these tours that Pennaf housing group found when looking for a solution to a problem, how do you show a home in a way that’s immersive and lets your potential customer really get a feel for the place when that home is still under development and not easily accessible?
Steve Robinson is the Extra Care Services Manager for the Pennaf Housing Group which is currently developing the three new schemes in North Wales: Hafan Cefni in Llangefni, Llys Raddinton in Flint and Maes y Dderwen in Wrexham.
Steve said “The 360 virtual reality tours allow a greater number of people to experience the show apartments at our three new extra care housing schemes and see for themselves what a brilliant housing opportunity they provide for those aged 60 or over. It has worked especially well while the schemes are under construction as we have limited access to the show apartments. It’s great that people can now make a virtual visit in the comfort of their own home 24/7.”
The 360° tours have been designed with a desktop computer or tablet user in mind and are embedded seamlessly into the Pennaf website similar to the example above, however for that fully immersive experience they also work in VR mode in a virtual reality headset.
Now the project is complete Steve says “Antony Woodhouse Photography have done a really professional job, it’s the perfect way to help people visualise what their new home with could look like. Allocations are going well at each of the schemes so now’s the time to apply or get in touch if anyone wants to find out more – contact details are on each of the virtual tours.”
Having completed the job I think these appartments are fantastic, having grown up with and cared for my father who had MS it’s great to see the thought that has gone into these homes, they haven’t skimped on space and the wet rooms are incredible. What also struck me was how close they are to local amenities. Check out Pennaf’s website for details of these homes and if you’re looking for help with your project and would like a 360° VR tour please contact us.
