For most people, buying a property is once in a lifetime opportunity. Therefore, one would always want to consider as many options of properties as possible to get the best value for their money.
However, that normally involves a lot of time & effort. Consequently, even on a Sunday you can’t really sit back at home and relax as the property agents keep calling you to check on the properties, some of which, would not even meet your requirements and that means a total waste of your time! Magicbricks.com is India’s No.1 portal for Property and has recently launched Magicbricks Experience Center for masses at Western Express Highway Metro Station in Mumbai. At the Magicbricks Experience Center, you can experience properties in 360 Degrees in just matter of minutes. Also, most of the corporate companies are nearby, hence opening up an Experience Center at Metro makes sense as commuters can come and experience it at their own convenience.
Magicbricks Experience Center Equipped With Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality & Large Touch Displays
Use Of Virtual Reality :
Virtual Reality is the future & also one of the only ways to experience things in 360 degrees. Magicbricks has done a great job of using this technology in the Real Estate business. Magicbricks Experience Center is at Metro Station you can go anytime and use technologies like VR, AR & Large Touch Displays to find out best properties in your desired area. By using VR Headset you can take a Virtual tour of the home from the lobby to bedrooms in 360 Degrees.
We had a firsthand experience and honestly it was more than we ever expected it to be. We almost felt that we were on the location and this is what makes this concept already a huge success. Clearly,this saves a lot of time and money since you don’t need to travel on weekends to have a look on the property and you can easily reach the experience center during your daily commute and conveniently check out properties.
Use Of Augmented Reality :
As per the survey conducted by Magicbricks, approximately 60% of the buyers end up buying an apartment which does not have adequate ventilation or enough natural light. Here is where AR comes into play. As a buyer, you can have an aerial view of the entire society and see if there are any buildings blocking the natural light. You can also check out the landscapes and greenery, the view from the window and many such things.
Use Of Large Touch Displays :
Large touch displays can be used to calculate EMI’s. You can view popular locations on maps, per sq ft cost, graphs of the prices per sq ft & many such things on the large touch displays.
There is also this great feature where you can connect with the customer support by just picking up the headset because at times we need someone to resolve our queries. So having an instant customer support is a bonus. Moreover, the attendants at the experience center are there to help you if you have any queries.
Mr. Sudhir Pai, CEO, Magicbricks.com, said “the experience center is a coming together of high-quality hardware and software that addresses very specific ‘issues’ in the consumer’s property journey. We imagine that the center would enhance the home buying process to a whole new level. This experience center celebrates our strengths in applying technology to solve real problems in a meaningful, scalable manner.”
This initiative by Magicbricks is set to initiate a life-changing landscape in real estate. Also, I feel in coming years this is how we will search properties and by taking this step they have already reduced the hassle of a customer to quite an extent. So, if you are from Mumbai and if you ever plan to travel to the WEH Metro Station then you MUST visit the Experience Center.
I am already excited to see what will be the next big step from Magicbricks.
