Including a panoramic tour in your single property site can boost the number of showings and help buyers form an emotional attachment to the home even before they walk in the door. Here are five (free!) ways you can turn your listing photos into a panoramic tour.
1. Use your camera
Many digital cameras include a free photo stitching assist within the camera itself. Even pocket cameras like Nikon's Coolpix allow you to create panos using nothing but the camera.
2. Use your smartphone
There are many apps available for smartphones that use the photos taken by the camera on your phone to create a panoramic photo. Photosynth is a well-reviewed and easy to use version for iPhone users, available for free in the App Store.
3. Use your iPad
Photosynth can also be used on your iPad 2, or try another stitching app such as Panorama Free or TourWrist, reviewed here.
4. Use the Internet
Websites such as CleVR allow you to upload your images and stitch them for free online, no download required. Once you've created your panoramic image, you can save it to your computer and use it anywhere you'd like.
5. Use ours!
