What is a 360 degree photo?
A 360-degree photo is an interactive panoramic image that surrounds the original point from which the photo was taken.
360-degree photos simulate being in the persons view of a photographer and looking around to the left, right, up and down as desired as well as zooming. The viewer can click or drag any point on the image to the desired position.

You've most likely seen some of your family and friends post an interactive panorama or photosphere on Facebook and if you use Google Street View, this feature has been popping up more and more on the internet.
Why do we use 360 degree photos?
With more and more buyers searching for homes on their mobile devices including smartphones and tablets, it’s important to show that we are keeping up with the latest technologies including; websites, photos, custom aerial videos, social media, blogs, QR codes and 360 degree interactive photos.
We use 360 photos in real estate to give a potential buyer a better representation of the neighborhood, exterior and interior of the property. When a buyer views the 360 photos they have a much better idea and perspective of the property and can make an informed decision whether they would like to purchase the property.
We also use 360 photos when we list properties. We offer a 360 degree street view and interior view of the home. After we capure the images we share them on our websites and social media.
