Sherry FitzGerald, Ireland’s largest firm of estate agents, is showing projects of yet unbuilt houses to potential clients in virtual reality by the help of Samsung Gear VR.
Samsung announced that its Samsung Gear VR headsets will be used by Sherry FitzGerald to show prospective purchasers what houses in the Lucan Village, West Dublin will look like inside when completed.
The VR technology will allow people to conduct a virtual walk-through in order to experience the layout, proportions and space in details.
This it what Ivan Gaine, the head of New Homes at Sherry Fitzgerald, says about this innovation:
We are hugely excited to be leading the field in this exciting cutting edge technology. The freedom it gives our viewers to go on a virtual walkthrough of an unbuilt property and appreciate the proportions of the rooms, see the views from the window and experience the expected finish of a show house all by simply putting on a headset, is very futuristic.
To better understand how the VR experience looks like, have a look at this video:
Sherry FitzGerald is planning to bring virtual reality experience to commercial properties and have VR headsets in every branch around the country.
The virtual reality technology will enable people to buy properties from another city and would make house hunting so much easier and faster.
This is definitely a milestone in the future of real estate!
