Have you ever wished that you could buy time?  I do!  While we can't buy time, we can certainly utilize tools that make us more efficient.  Virtual Reality is a burgeoning technology that will shortly be a part of every shopping experience, e.g. from buying homes to viewing what's on the shelves of your local grocery store.    The whole premise is based on creating immersive experiences from the comfort of your living room.  We have saved our clients hundreds of hours by previewing homes in virtual reality.  Here's how:

When you hear about virtual reality most people think you need to have special goggles and software. 

Oculus Rift Goggles



Yes, these goggles are great and provide a true immersive experience.  However, technology has come a long way in a short period of time.   Our team has made significant strides in adopting immersive technologies and it's something unique that we offer to our clients.  You don't need to have these goggles or special tools.  Most of the social media platforms have adopted an interface that allows you to see pictures and videos in a 360 degree, virtual reality format.    Here's a great example:
