New self service virtual tour system launched for estate agents

Virtual tours for everyone

There is no doubt now that virtual property tours are the perfect way to explore homes in a new world of social distancing. It also provides additional benefits to everyone, including saving on travelling time, having to clean up the home for every viewing, and giving buyers a better overview of the property 24/7. It is just the perfect way to compliment every listing.

With many virtual tour systems available on the market, cost and functionality differ between all of them. Our team has scratched their heads, and since we are used to building highly optimized & efficient systems, we are able to offer a free virtual tour platform for estate agents through our MyProperty platform.

Get started right now

If you have a 360-degree camera, you can get started right away or even transfer your existing tours  by creating an account: https://www.myproperty.co.za/tools/virtual-tours

No camera? Check out this article for some suggestions and be sure to get a tripod too. With a one time investment, you can now do your own virtual tours on all your listings.

Virtual tour integration options

Tours can easily be embedded in websites as per below and links can be added to management systems like Base to feature on your own website.



Another example:





The virtual tour viewer is responsive so will work on any device, including mobile:




A full screen view option further maximises the experience for the user, especially useful on mobile phones:


More features to follow

We've rolled out this first phase version which aimed to provide a basic service that is highly available and stable 24/7. Our team will research and add more features over time, including:
  • Ability to link scenes with clickable icons to facilitate walkthroughs.
  • Allowing for larger 360-degree photos to be uploaded.
  • Customisation of the viewer including agency branding.
  • Integration options for management systems, allowing you to access and upload tours on listings.

Are there limits?

You can upload all your tours and create unlimited scenes per tour.
Right now we only allow a maximum size of 4MB per 360-degree photo.



Our paid Matterport 3D offer will resume as soon as photographers are able to do so under current lockdown regulations in South Africa.
