We recently sat down with Knotel to discuss how Commercial Real Estate is having its moment with VR.
5 of our favorite takeaways from that round table discussion:
- VR enables end users the ability to essentially “test drive” a space - which is what most everyone prefers to do for other expensive purchases, like a car.
- The global pandemic has accelerated deployment of a lot of lasting trends like VR that were already working - and now truly feel like a natural part of conducting business.
- You can do a lot more with a digital space than you can with a physical space, and you have a lot more flexibility and fluidity to control the buyers/owners experience which can be complicated and have a lot of moving parts - showcasing different design options, layouts, color palettes, etc, essentially for free in a digital environment.
- VR humanizes the experience, particularly when thinking of people returning to offices and the evolution of what those will look like and what the experience will be like - reassuring people that safety is properly accounted for, going a long way for establishing trust and confidence.
- In sales and in presentations, you pick up a lot on how people move both through a space with their body language. With VR you get that, allowing you to reap these benefits ordinarily reserved for in person interactions and tours.
