VRARA Chicago Chapter - How VR & AR Affect the Real Estate Industry

RSVP here

Screen Shot 2018-09-28 at 10.55.39 AM.png

Real estate is one of the industries that quickly adopted immersive technology. Virtual reality and augmented reality provide buyers and renters with a new way to experience properties, both on the commercial and residential side. With VR, prospective tenants can quickly view multiple properties without ever leaving their broker's office, gaining a better physical understanding of the spaces than flat photography can provide. Augmented reality allows prospective tenants to see potential office space layouts within the context of a raw space that they may be viewing. VR/AR Chicago is happy to bring together a panel of experts on Real Estate and Immersive technology to answer whatever questions you may have about how XR technology is going to affect the Real Estate Industry.
