Cornerstone Realty is pleased to announce that this Saturday, August 11th they will be hosting Staten Islands' first ever, "Virtual Open House," at their office location of 847 Annadale Road. This live-streamed event will provide the opportunity for buyers to view and walk through multiple homes, all from 1 location. Buyers will have the opportunity to walk through 3 distinct homes in minutes and all from the virtual reality center located in the Cornerstone Realty office.
"Being able to bring technology and VR to the home buying process is a big part of where this industry is headed. The speed at which we can use information and act on it, that's your advantage in a competitive market. We want our clients to get a first hand peak at how this can help them speed up the process and have the opportunity to view more properties in a shorter time. Through our virtual reality center, you actually feel like you are walking through the house and you can view multiple properties to help in your decision making process in a matter of minutes rather than the hours it may take you." stated Frank Rizzo, President and Broker of Cornerstone Realty.
Virtual Reality walk throughs have started to appear in the marketplace and because of the cost, typically most of the properties that had it been used for were at higher price points. Cornerstone Realty had made the investment in this technology and made it a standard part of their Premier Marketing System, which benefited properties at all price points.
The consumer, while being able to recognize the property may be available as a VR tour, typically does not get the full effect if they do not have the corresponding VR technology. At the Cornerstone office, the VR connective devices are there to present buyers with a complete picture and scope of the future. "We felt that buyers were not getting a complete picture trying to view 4D on a 2D screen. This open house gives buyers an opportunity to view these homes like they should be viewed. We are really excited to be able to host this first of it's kind event for the public and we look forward to more in the future," stated Frank Rizzo.
The featured properties this weekend include 48 Tillman Street, 99 Arlington Place and 33 Harrison Street. This event is open to the public but you can reserve time by calling 718 447 8100 for more information.
