Thanks to the internet, you can shop for a new home from the comfort of your couch. Virtual marketing has turned home buying inside out, so you can sift through prospective homes with a 360-degree virtual tour.

When looking for a new home, you have a lot of homework to do as you answer questions about what you want.

Should you build or buy? Do you want to live in a new area or established neighborhood? How are the schools and the shopping?

Once you’ve narrowed it down, the real effort starts. After work and in your free time, you spend endless hours driving to locations and tromping through homes with your real estate agent until you find the right home.

Or do you?

Thanks to the internet, you can shop for a new home from the comfort of your couch. Virtual marketing has turned home buying inside out, so you can sift through prospective homes with a 360-degree virtual tour.

What is a 360-degree tour?

Rather than being limited to still photos of rooms and exteriors, virtual tours give a realistic feel of the home. These tours allow you to experience the size of rooms in relation to one another, as well as how it will feel to walk through the layout.

With a Fischer Homes virtual tour, for example, you can click and swipe through your prospective home. And this isn’t some shaky, poorly lit view from someone creating a homemade video. This virtual tour is a fully interactive experience: You can see floor plans from a birds-eye view, tour floor by floor, or do a virtual walkthrough in 360 degrees.

Virtual tours are especially helpful if you’re looking to build a new home, as you don’t have to pore over floor plans anymore to try and imagine the house in three dimensions. Because Fischer Homes new build tours are no longer limited to 2D modeling, neither are you. You can choose from dozens of prospective home and condo interiors, all beautifully designed to fit your lifestyle and family needs.

With a virtual tour, you can view the family room from the corner of the couch, pace off the garage, stand at the kitchen sink, and walk in the master bathroom. You can picture where your furniture will fit, how many people you can host during the holidays, or check if your kids’ play area is visible from your office space. It’s that easy.

Making home shopping simple and fun

Virtual home tours can be done anywhere you have an internet connection — home, work, even your kid’s basketball practice. So, save the time and energy of driving from location to location to see yet another home that won’t work for you or your family.

A virtual home tour takes the stress and guesswork out of home shopping and makes it fun, so try a 360-degree tour for yourself and, if you decide that a Fischer Home is right for you, visit a Design Center to customize the home of your dreams.

“This truly one-of-a-kind service from our designers and outstanding resource center allows you to preview the products that will be in your new home and offers a palette of exciting ideas on how to create a home that reflects your individual lifestyle,” Fischer Homes says. “Make all the selections you want to create your dream home!”
