Real estate reinvented
AVU3D® is a new emulation technology that allows a buyer to visit properties in 3D on the internet from a computer, tablet or smart phone. Visitors are represented by an avatar and can communicate among themselves in a digitally recreated property from high resolution photos. Using a dashboard, the broker can see real-time browsing visitors in his inscriptions and may, at any time, join them virtually to offer his services.
