When we first founded Uptown Photo, we knew that we wanted to be one of the leading real estate virtual tour companies, so we set out to learn what real estate agents want from their virtual tour provider, so we can put together an ideal blend of products and services to help them maximize the effectiveness of their real estate marketing.
We also took a close look at what real estate buyers wanted when they looked at properties online, and what kind of content national real estate web sites prioritized in their search results, and one thing was clear... the VR industry continues to gain momentum nationwide, so immersive 360 virtual tours are an important part of property marketing.

We are not just a 360 Virtual Tour Company...
We are a comprehensive 360 Photography Company
Although we are a 360 virtual tour company, we also do a lot of other things well. We have worked hard to offer all of the real estate marketing services you need under one roof.
Here are examples of the services we provide:
real estate photography
360 virtual tours
interactive floor plans
cinematic video tours
real estate photo retouching
property virtual tour web pages
So, speaking of all the ways in which we can help you market your listings, here is the second type of "virtual tour" that we offer, which is actually a property web site.
It's hard to know sometimes whether a 360 photography company is speaking about a 360 virtual tour, or a property web site.
The term "virtual tour" refers to two different things... one of which is a "360 virtual tour," and the other is a "property web page/site."
We provide both of these services, so whichever kind of "virtual tour" you need, we can help you with that.
Property Web Pages
One place to showcase everything about your listing.
Show photos. Show 360 tour. Show video. Show floor plan. Show map.
If you need help right away, we are here for you around the clock to book appointments and answer questions.

Beyond 360 virtual tours...
It's true that we are a 360 virtual tour company, and as virtual photographers we really like 360 virtual tours. However, it's important to remember that a 360 virtual tour is only a part of a complete marketing plan.
Other services you may want to consider besides doing a 360 virtual tour are interactive floor plans, and cinematic video tours, aerial photography, and real estate photography.
Why do you need those?
Well, because they give buyers a more complete understanding of the property they are viewing, and they have strengths that 360 virtual tours don't have.
For example, 360 virtual tours, while very impressive, are also quite warped when it comes to showing true proportions. Walls look like they are leaning in/out, and in general they give a sort of "fun-house" look to a listing, which while it is very impressive and informative to buyers, it is also somewhat misleading.
Buyers have a difficult time understanding true proportions when viewing the ultra-wide-angle views that a 360 virtual tour presents, so it is helpful to also include high-quality real estate photography alongside the virtual tour.
Cinematic video tours also have the added benefit of creating a narrative (sometimes with voiceover), and showing quick highlights of the property, often with special visual effects to enhance the presentation.
Lastly, interactive floor plans give a bird's-eye view of the property, and allow buyers to see where all the photos were taken within the property, which can provide them with a clearer frame of reference as to the layout of the property. So, be sure to ask your virtual tour provider about that.
So, whatever virtual tour company you wind up hiring, just remember that the more photography/marketing assets you commission upfront, the faster your listing will sell, and the more money it will command.

"It was a rush digital art order, and they had it ready before the due date! It looks great. It was a pleasure working with Daniel."
Cindy Barnhart AlturasAnalytics.com
"Daniel was awesome to work with! We wanted photos of a few properties when the weather was decent & our company is located out of state. Daniel was great about keeping us updated & getting the job done. He delivered the photos fully edited the next day after they were taken and if I had changes he redelivered within hours of my request. I look forward to working with him on any future projects my company has."
