PropertyVR.co.za is a completely new approach to searching for a property to buy.
As opposed to the conventional method which starts by looking in an area and applying certain filters then looking at photos of properties that don't disclose the exact location, PropertyVR.co.za allows you to search through a GoogleMap and then zoom in to exact areas.
The map will then display pin locations of properties for sale. Clicking or tapping on this pin will display the basic information of the property and a link to the virtual tour.
The virtual tour gives a 360 degree view as well as ceiling and floor view.
