What’s the difference between a video/virtual tour, a virtual showing, and a virtual open house?

Video/virtual tours – Recorded, static on-demand presentations of a property. A virtual or video tour can be a simple video slideshow, a produced walkthrough of the property, or even an interactive 3-D model (like Matterport). Here’s how to add them to your listings.

Virtual showing – Earlier this month, ShowingTime introduced the ability to set up virtual showings. A virtual showing is a private, live online video conference arranged between listing agents and buyer’s agents, similar to arranging a showing at the property.

Virtual open house – A live, online video version of a conventional open house. It’s a scheduled event where the listing agent hosts multiple buyer’s agents and potential buyers to review, discuss, and ask questions about the property.
