Today, finding one’s dream property is largely dependent on the vicinity of the property. A home’s location not just determines the future value of investment, but also many aspects of a buyer’s everyday life. A seeker’s dream property needs to be perfect in terms of the comfort factor and proximity to all important amenities including: civic infrastructure, health care, shopping and entertainment, education facility, safety aspects, dining options etc. Keeping precisely these parameters of property selection in mind and working on the vision of enabling property selection in half day, CommonFloor.com, India’s leading online real estate platform has introduced a first-of-its-kind innovative feature called the ‘Locality Virtual Tour’. This remarkably innovative feature offers a virtual walk through of a neighborhood of any locality selected by user.
Property buyer can get 360 degree view or a street view of the location mapped on Google maps (along with geo-code) this eliminates the need to visit the location in person which provides buyers a comprehensive perspective of the locality.
Commenting on the launch of this new feature, Sumit Jain, Co-Founder & CEO, CommonFloor, said, “After the successful launch of Live-in Tours feature, Locality Virtual Tour is yet another add-on to simplify the property search process and empower the customer’s with better information about the locality. By using both these feature, property buyers can save 90% of time by not visiting the wrong places. Currently, we have mapped 100 localities in Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai on this feature and we intend to list out 500 localities across 10 cities in the next six months.”

Lalit Mangal, Co-Founder and CPO, CommonFloor.com said, “We live in a world where getting a 360 degree view of the house is just not enough. When property projects are marketed, very few share details pertaining to the immediate vicinity. Brochures tend to not mention closeness of a project to places like graveyards or garbage dumps. This is where Locality Virtual Tour comes-in and provides eager property seekers with a panoramic street view of the area, helping them understand the nuances of the location before they purchase/ rent/ resale a new property or a plot.”
