SothebysRealty.com Integrates New Technologies

Sothebysrealty.com Adds 3D Tours with Virtual Reality Capability for Property Detail Pages

Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC today announced that its global website, sothebysrealty.com, now supports 3D Tours on its property detail pages allowing real estate consumers the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in homes listed by the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand. The 3D Tours will also feature a Virtual Reality Tour (VR) experience that can be viewed through a compatible device such as an Android phone or VR headset.

The 3D and VR Tours are produced by strategically placing specialized cameras throughout a home to create a result that transforms the traditional way people view homes online. The 3D and VR Tours add an additional layer of content to the existing property detail pages on sothebysrealty.com which also provide a written description, high-resolution photographs and high-definition videos.  At launch, the Sotheby’s International Realty brand will have 3D Tours available on over 1,000 properties that are viewable on desktop, tablet or smartphone.

“Introducing 3D and VR Tours on sothebysrealty.com is just another example of how we are keeping theSotheby’s International Realty brand on the cutting edge while creating an immersive experience for consumers,” said John Passerini, global vice president, interactive marketing at Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC.  “Distance can present a challenge when looking to buy a home and virtual reality has provided a provocative solution. This technology is allowing buyers to purchase homes without having to physically travel to view them, which is especially relevant to the global clientele we serve.”

The sothebysrealty.com site experienced 16 million user sessions in Q1-Q3 of 2016, a 60% increase year-over-year. Property detail pages on the brand site support Matterport, a past winner of the 2014 Realogy FWD innovation summit, and additional compatible 3D Tours.

In coordination with this announcement, Sotheby’s International Realty is also a real estate launch partner forMatterport’s CoreVR release— the largest collection of virtual reality content across multiple disciplines.  With the adoption of CoreVR, Sotheby’s International Realty will be able to offer both a 3D and VR experience.  Additionally, Sotheby’s International Realty property listings on Mansion Global, the digital luxury real estate destination from Dow Jones, will also be equipped with the 3D Tour feature.

Art & Home | Kitchen Culture

The latest volume of Art & Home is here! This month, Iyna Bort Caruso takes a bite out of Kitchen Culture and invites you to dine in some of the finest kitchens from around the world.

“Knock-your-socks-off gorgeous,” is how Jamie Gold, a San Diego, California-based certified kitchen designer and author of “New Kitchen Ideas That Work” describes kitchens at the top end of the market. “It’s about brand. It’s about impression. It’s what the neighbors are doing–only better.”

Today’s kitchens are swoon-worthy showplaces of good looks, high performance and sophisticated wizardry.

Mass market is out. Fresh design interpretations are in. As dominions of personal expression, kitchens are places homeowners put their signature and showcase their style with handcrafted cabinetry and bespoke fittings and finishes.

A recent survey of more than 500 architecture firms by the American Institute of Architects reinforces the role of kitchens as the command center of the home, with a caliber of appliances and appointments that not only reflects homeowners’ tastes but also makes them and their guests feel good.
