Real Estate Reinvented
AVU3D ® is a new emulation technology that allows a buyer to freely visit properties in 3D on the internet from a computer, tablet or smartphone. Visitors are represented by an avatar and can communicate with each other in the property recreated digitally from high resolution photos. Using a dashboard, the broker can see visitors navigating its listings in real time and may, at any time, virtually join them to provide his services.
