It’s common to hear “video virtual tours” and “virtual tours” lumped together in the same category, as if they’re the same thing. Video virtual tours and real virtual tours, like Matterport 3D Virtual Tours, are worlds apart in what they offer.
A video virtual tour is a slideshow of your professional photographs with "Ken Burns-Effects" (also known as "pan-and-scan"), background music and motion graphics. Video virtual tours generate an emotional and entertaining viewing experience for the potential home buyers as well as giving the realtor an excellent piece of media to help engage future clients. The advantage for realtors is that video virtual tours are inexpensive at only $35.
Snap2Close's video virtual tours (slideshows) are template-based and created using Adobe After Effects software. Each Virtual Tour is produced twice - one unbranded for your custom unbranded website and ARMLS and one branded for you to share on Realtor.com and multimedia.
Snap2Close offers four separate video virtual tour templates. Three of the templates require a minimum of 20 photos and a maximum of 28 photos. The Feng Shui template can hold up to 32 photos.
When placing your order of a video virtual tour, either as an add-on service or as part of our Gold or Platinum Packages you may specifically request one of these templates. If you do so then please let us know by using the “Special Instructions” box when you schedule your photo shoot.
Below is a sample of each tour. The tour on the left will be the unbranded version and the tour on the right the branded version.
Note: Since these Video Virtual Tours are template based the graphics information is mostly fixed. Information such as price, square footage, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, etc. is pulled directly the listing information you enter when scheduling the photo shoot. We are unable to switch names for logos, etc.
