So the app that we are looking to build would be similar to You Visit. http://www.youvisit.com/tourbuilder#_=_
Finished tour would be more like this:
It would first work with the camera on the users phone to take panoramic photos and stich them into 360's but should also work with our camera and other 360 cameras.
We want a Camera very similar to google cardboard camera in terms of layout and function. Exactly like it actually.
Tours would be Only Limit to Just 360, panoramic and photos with a link to maps and google street view for address that would let the user explore the neighborhood.
The app would require the MLS# then pull the data from MLS to pre-populate the required rooms for the tour and then prompt the user to shoot the house with pics and 360 pano’s from the outside front of house through the rooms and features listed in the MLS listing. Then when completed ask for any special rooms or features they want to add. It should also tie into google street view for the map feature and make a listing page that can be printed.
When the our is completed it should allow for multiple options to publish and promote the tour/listing.
Primary publish points are Facebook, Google Cardboard, and Google street view. But as many social media posts as possible is the goal. So Twitter, Linked in and Pinterest are also important.
The tour/listing Should allow users to use cardboard to view the tour and navigate within the headset to the rooms in the our and also to the pictures of each room as well. It should also work without the headset by navigating with the arrow keys and mouse.
Think of the tour/listing as an add unit, and the app as an add server. We need the ability for people to share the listing as well as communicate views shares etc. on social media etc.
The users should be able to contact the realtor from the tour/listing and see more listings from the realtor. Prompt them to download our app.
In the Homeviewer app, each listing should also post to our app, They should be listed by zip code and sorted by date and time. Each new listing in the zip code should push down older listings in the list. Realtors should get notified when their listing has dropped spots and be offered the ability to bump the listing up to the top for a fee. 1.00. Also a fee to hold the number one spot in a zip code. Ability to highlight a listing somehow would also be good.
On the back end some sort of Social CRM system that allows to track and push and respond to connects they send listings too, like add their contacts and push emails with their new listing or listings in a zip code and track responses etc.
Doesn’t have to be robust in the first version but obviously adding features will be important.
The VR portion is important as is google street view but equally if not more important is the ability to post to social media and to use google cardboard headsets they distribute to clients that will log into their listings/tours. Also the ability to track leads and convert them to sales and manage that process is very important.
