Austin, Texas (PRWEB) November 10, 2011
FloorPlanOnline.com, the leading provider of full and self-service floor plan oriented virtual tours for real estate, today announced a partnership agreement with the Texas Association of Realtors® to be the exclusive virtual tour provider for the Association’s member benefit program.
Under the agreement, the Association will provide members with a free “TourProducer Lite” account. Each virtual tour includes large photos, property details, a flier, and an editable video with music, captions and more. Members can upgrade their account to enhance their tours to a complete single property website tour with 100+ photos, an enhanced video with automated YouTube uploads, enhanced flier/brochure creator with multiple templates & automated QR codes, and more. Tours work on any device, including the iPad, making it a powerful listing tool.
Paid subscribers can also add floor plans to any tour, either through the floor plan clean-up service (for drawings, sketches or architectural plans), or through the floor plan creation service, where FloorPlanOnline creates a plan onsite. Full service floor plans are available in most parts of Texas. Tours and related content can be linked to an agent’s website, as well as the MLS, Realtor.com®, YouTube, and even an agent’s Facebook business page.
“We are very pleased to be part of the member benefit program for the Texas Association of Realtors®,“ said Kris Cone, CEO of FloorPlanOnline.com. “Texas real state is still going strong, unlike many other parts of the country. Our new subscription program will enable us to serve markets in Texas where we were previously unable to provide our products. What makes us unique is our ability to add a floor plan to any listing as the need arises. Multiple research studies confirm that buyers want to see floor plans as they are shopping online, that floor plans drive more interest in properties, and that floor plans can increase listing agent commissions. Floor plans also facilitate sales – several agents have sold properties without any physical visit – the buyer just saw the tour! We hope to bring our services to the state of Texas in a big way through our partnership.”
FloorPlanOnline provides some of the most unique and desired content for real estate listings, and that was one of the things that really attracted us to them,“ said John Gormley, Vice President, Communications and Marketing for the Texas Association of Realtors®. “We look forward to providing a cost-effective tour option to any Texas Realtor® as part of our member benefits, and then encourage our members to upgrade with floor plans. The FloorPlanOnline tours, with 2D and 3D RoomPlanner, really help buyers visualize and experiment with how they could live in a property. This is something you can’t get from just seeing photos.”
