Once you’ve placed your order for a property tour you will receive a confirmation e-mail of your appointment.
If you haven’t ordered a tour before or set up your agent account you can sign up and complete the account at any time. It’s to your benefit to get as much information on your account as you can and you can even sync it up with your social media accounts so once the tour is activated it is automatically posted to them for you.
After the appointment takes place you’ll receive an e-mail letting you know that the tour has been created – at this point it is NOT a live tour.
All tours are created as drafts to ensure agents have time to go in and update the information to their liking and the property is listed within the MLS before the tour is available for the public.
Once you get the e-mail notifying you that your tour is available you can log into the tour dashboard and have access to all of the images and tour information.
Before your tour is activated and live you should check the items below to make sure all the information is correct and to your liking because once the tour is activated the YouTube video will be generated and links will be posted to any synced social media accounts.
Once the tour is created you have 3 days to make any changes to the property address, after that time it becomes locked and cannot be changed.
Your images have been uploaded in to various galleries, you can go through and change the gallery names, the images that are inside the galleries and the order the galleries appear in.
If your tour included 360 images you can go through them and create “hotspots” to point out various features as viewers are moving through the image.
You can also change the name, details and order that the panoramas show up in.
Go through and arrange the slideshow images as you would like them displayed with the tour and tour video as well as turn off any images you would not like shown.
Further slideshow instructions can be found here.
Update the information for the property to include at least the basic information such as price, beds/baths and property type. To get the most out of your tour you should add as much information as you can.
You can also provide property information before the tour goes live by using this form, any information you provide before the appointment will be added to the tour for you. Once the tour is created and sent to you you’ll be responsible for adding the information.
Once you have all of the important details and the photos arranged to your liking you can activate your tour or schedule it to be activated at a specific date.
