Properties can be showcased in many different ways. However, it’s important to accurately show as much of the property as possible. This is especially true when it is a gorgeous home, like the homes we have on Galveston Island. These homes deserve a great viewing experience and virtual tours provide just that.
Virtual tours combine hundreds of pictures assembled in many 360 degree images, usually throughout the entirety of a property. Similar to a video game, the viewer can seamlessly, and at their own pace, move from one point of interest to the next, all while looking around the 360° view wherever they’d like. This gives a level of immersion like none other. The viewer really feels like they are there as they virtually “walk” around a space.
Technology has come a long way in order to produce these types of showcases. With cameras like the Matterport, these virtual tours can be done quickly and easily. These high-end cameras also scan the surrounding environment to produce a 3D model of the space. This allows you to view a house as if it were a small dollhouse, giving you ultimate control in the exploration of a home.
The viewer’s experience is even better when they use a virtual reality headset. Most virtual tours, 360° images, and 3D models alike can be experienced with many different VR headsets. The level of immersion in virtual reality is outstanding and it is the perfect way to experience a space that one simply could not otherwise.

Virtual tours are the closest we can get to the real thing and in some ways they are even better. For instance, someone interested in visiting a home can visit it immediately, at any time of day. Sometimes physical tours of properties just can’t happen, but anyone can take a virtual tour whenever they want and for as long as they want. You can also visit a property on Galveston Island from across the globe in the comfort of your own couch, on the go, or anywhere with an internet connection!
These self-guided, virtual tours are often times folks’ best means on deciding which home to rent for their vacation. People can get a good feel for a property without wondering exactly what it will look like. It can be an amazing tool for bringing in more guests to your rental property. In fact, 74% of photographers have reported generating more revenue by using Matterport tours.
If you own a property on Galveston Island that you aren’t using all the time, renting it out as a vacation rental can be a great source of income. This additional income could be used to improve your property and bring in more guests, making it a huge benefit for you and guests.
