Orange County Real Estate Agent Brittany Leighton on 3D Virtual Home Tours

What’s a 3D Virtual Home Tour?

Selling your home can be a challenge, but the right marketing tools can have a significant impact. Modern technology has given the real estate industry a variety of different tools, including 3D virtual home tours. So what is a virtual home tour and how can it help you sell your home faster? That’s precisely what we’ll explore in today’s article from Southern California Berkshire Hathaway Realtor Brittany Leighton.

What Is a 3D Virtual Home Tour?

A 3D virtual home tour is created using special camera technology, which captures your home’s interior and even portions of the exterior in a manner that allows the viewer a chance to virtually “walk through” and tour the property. 

In fact, virtual home tour technology first became mainstream with the arrival of Google Maps street view. Google Maps street view utilizes the exact same technology as a virtual home tour, except you can walk off the street and into the home’s interior!

With a 3D home tour, the viewer can navigate through the house, getting a 360-degree view while inside. 


A 3D virtual home tour is more than just a cool novelty. It’s also a wonderful tool for showcasing your home to potential buyers who live outside of your immediate area; individuals who may not be able to view your home in person before making the purchase. 

In addition to marketing your home more effectively to individuals outside of Southern California, a 3D home tour allows potential buyers to view the house before they schedule a private showing. This can be beneficial for anyone with a home that shows far better on the inside than it does from the outside. For those homeowners, you can pull in more potential buyers since you can showcase the interior far more effectively. 

Plus, a virtual house tour makes your property more memorable, which is always a benefit. It’s not uncommon for a buyer to view dozens of different homes, so you get a bit of an edge when your house is extra memorable.


A 3D virtual home tour is filmed using special cameras that capture your home’s interior in 360-degrees. 

It does take a few hours to perform the filming, as the camera must be moved throughout the house to capture all of the rooms from a few different perspectives. 

The cost of a virtual home tour varies depending upon the size of your home. It can range from a few hundred dollars to $1500 or more.
