In the first part of this blog, we discussed the issues that builders and property developers usually have when searching for the real value of using VR architectural visualisations. By now, we know that a great one shows an unbuilt structure’s presence. We can achieve this when we create a hyper-realistic, choreographed VR journey that can mimic real-life tours. We can also add elements that make the building more engaging and meaningful for the clients.
We opt to continue the blog to address the issues further and remove the fears that keep some builders and property developers from embracing VR technology.

Challenge 4: VR is sometimes isolating
People who have tried VR before confess the feeling of isolation. For some, the solo VR experience is enjoyable. But, there are instances when people feel hesitant to immerse themselves in VR alone.
When this happens, it’s best to reassure that person that they are not going in alone, and they can do a group viewing in a physical VR setup. With a multi-user setup, VR can be social. The people in the same room can interact with the VR environment, and tell about the actual space itself while testing it.
Challenge 5: Clients rarely make decisions alone
Usually, there are more than one decision-makers. Clients rarely make decisions alone when buying properties. It’s a collaborative undertaking — they always do it with their partner, friends, relatives, or with their parents. They need somebody whom they can discuss the potential investment.
Sometimes, the other stakeholders are far away (e.g. residing in another country, state, or city) and can’t make it to a VR viewing on an office.
It’s the reason why we strived to make our VR accessible to a desktop computer, laptop, smartphone, tablet, and a VR headset. We want people to view the building, similar to visiting an existing property. Buyers can also customise and finalise the design of their future home using VR. Property developers and builders can use this feature to engage their clients in the design process.

With better content, the problem will go away
The problems and issues of most builders and property developers about using VR architectural visualisations do not lie on the hardware. We have a growing list of powerful VR headsets today. Problems arise when they don’t offer VR content and provide immersive experiences that aren’t valuable to people. ∎
