Virtual tours are nearing the death zone. The hot part of the market was 3-4 years ago. What's hot is hotonhomes type shows. That's currently, but the market is very fickle. Everyone is short on time now. If you're looking to implement new technology you need to figure out a way to make things faster and easier for the consumer. Most just don't have time to look at videos and virtual tours.

In Central Florida, the real estate market has taken an immense plummet. Being that the market favors the consumers best interest, it is vital for real estate agents to take marketing into their own hands to ensure that their listings stand out above the rest. 80% of preliminary home purchases begin with the internet thus meaning that agents need to have more of an online presence. Virtual tours are not an end all marketing solution, but when incorporated with branding, lead generators, property maps, major online distribution and other excellent features, agents can really benefit from a small investment. Many virtual tour companies have given tours a bad name due shoddy work. A true virtual tour should give the viewer full spherical freedom. The average tour of 5 images should be no more than $100 and 10 images $150. (Orlando Florida) charges $89.99 and $119.99. My goal at Trulia is to educate real estate agents on useful marketing technologies. As tours may not be for Bruce Lynn and some others, many agents have seen the help these marketing tools provide and have joined modern society on the web.

Consumers lately seem to favor stills. Video is great for a small select audience. Consumers have been frustrated by poor quality virtual tours.

Bruce and Maggie,
Isn't this just spam? It's not even a question! Russell has no information in his profile, and signed up only yesterday. My guess would be that he created a new profile simply to post this NON-question. By replying to spam--even with good and relevant information--aren't we just encouraging more of it? Please re-post a comment if you have a differing point of view. I'm just getting my bearings on trulia.... Thanks!

P.S. - Bruce, your comments were on target!

Russell, I'm not in Orlando but Miami. Is your pricing competitive? I like to keep tabs on what's happening in the industry, even if not nearby =)
