TorontoRentals.com Adds VR – GeekEstate Blog

TorontoRentals.com Adds VR – GeekEstate Blog

In March, I said I think we’re early in VR adoption. I still believe that. Torontorentals has added 3d virtual tours to their website. I certainly do think searching rentals are a better initial use for VR than buying a home. Another plus to that use case is consumers are younger — meaning, less likely

That means you don’t need to be home when the delivery happens, and the products are left inside your home rather than left on the doorstep for a thief to

The Quest for IDX Policy Revision, and Redfin’s Advantage

Earlier this week, I saw Victor Lund’s post about Glenn Kelmans’s call for IDX policy revisions requiring link backs to the broker. My first reaction was: this is a brilliant initiative/strategy.
