Virtual Reality the next Secret Weapon for Real Estate Developers in New York

As a Brooklyn based design studio specialized in 3D Rendering & Virtual Reality, we experience everyday new challenges as well improvements not only from the technological stand of point, but also from the consumer’s new demands and needs.
According to a recent study from Digi-Capital, by 2021, the market for VR (Virtual Reality) & AR (Augmented Reality) tech is expected to reach the 108 billion dollars. To put that into a wider perspective, with this same amount we could bail out Greece, which currently has a debt of around $110 billion*.
And according to Goldman Sachs, VR alone will be an $80 billion dollar market by 2025 — with $2.6 billion of that coming directly from the Real Estate market.
The actual definition for virtual reality, according to the Virtual Reality Society: Virtual reality is the term used to describe a three-dimensional, computer generated environment which can be explored and interacted with by a person. That person becomes part of this virtual world or is immersed within this environment and whilst there, is able to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions. Even by simply reading the definition, it’s clear to see how helping a person become “immersed” within an environment without actually having to travel there physically could be a beautiful thing for Real Estate agents, so what are Real Estate Developers experts saying about it:
“Homes with photographs have higher perceived values, and I’d bet homes with 3D Renderings have even higher perceived values”. Jeff Harris, Vice President at VR Matter.
“Why look at a picture, when you can walk through a world?” Peter Alden, VP at Flooring.
So one thing is to read about it from experts in the field, but if you really try it on, it just makes sense. If the right photos can work wonders for a listing, now imagine the real power of 3D & VR for a specific listing. In fact, investors predict even more innovative disruption in the real estate VR and AR space. Matthew Hood of the Hood Real Estate Group at Sotheby’s International Realty said: “A number of young tech companies are exploring an entirely in-VR experience where you enter search criteria like price, location, and number of rooms and you’re presented a number of homes and you can virtually tour….Once that happens, you’ll look back and say, ‘How did we do this before?’”
Thanks to new technologies such as the ones we specializes here at 3D World renderings, Inc., all you have to do is put a VR headset on and get yourself immersed into another reality. All the perks of an open house without the need to attend one… That is the essence behind why Real estate companies see huge potential in the use of both VR and AR. While Virtual Reality can serve as an alternative to open house, Augmented Reality might help potential customers visualize an empty space, and fill it with your desired furniture, the same way we did it for our friends and clients at Ollie | All Inclusive Coliving in Manhattan, NY. Before the construction was done, and based on their design, we were able to recreate the entire space in 3D, so future tenants could explore all the amenities of the space, before it was finish. Check it out here: Real Estate Secret Weapon.
This is becoming our new reality as seen on the latest Blockbuster movie from Steven Spielberg, Ready Player One. Real estate investors in our opinion are always looking to add new tools to their tool set box. Virtual Reali
ts their rentals, conducting renovations, advertising, and communicating with tenants are just a few ways of how we believe VR will improve the lives of real estate investors. VR is going to be a game-changer for real estate investors and the industry as a whole.
If you are a Real Estate Developer, an Architect, Interior designer or a Contractor in New York City or abroad, don’t miss out on the future. This is the future. This is already happening as we speak. As an overall takeaway, you should always hire a Design studio that specializes in 3D Rendering or Virtual Reality and is trustworthy and established. If you don’t, you could wind up having to do a reshoot and they might not be open to refunds.
Knowing what to look for when hiring a 3D & VR Design studio is only the very beginning of the things you need to know so you don’t make a mistake that could cost you hundreds (or in some cases thousands) of dollars.

Why Virtual Reality can Help you close more Deals?

Leaving aside degenerative brain disease, your brain never loses the ability to learn and change because it’s effectively plastic and constantly rewiring itself, according to a recent study by the Daring Adventure Team.

So why should 3D Rendering technology be any different? If our brains are constantly rewiring itself, and we are assuming that it’s constantly getting better and sharper as we grow older, why wouldn’t our 3D & VR technology get better and better?

We were happy to see that some of the articles out on the innerwebs were questioning whether 3D Renders were fulling or deriving the people. Meaning, because our technology is gotten better and better, we are now able to simulate reality to almost perfection. At times fooling the untrained eye, and as a consequence this had false expectations on the home buyer, for instance. This was one of their major concerns. As a team of specialists in 3D & VR, we understand completely that there are constrains within reality that do not exist in the virtual world.

However, we do not want to take our technology for granted, we would like to improve upon it and make it better. We would like to believe we are visionaries of what is possible in reality as we are shooting for 200% to reach a 120% in reality.

Next week, will go deeper on the whole process of buying and selling real estate in this new era of 3D Renderings & Virtual Reality!

Virtual Reality vs. Real Life

We are excited to see the world evolving in an unimaginable rapid matter. Not even 30 years ago, people could not communicate easily with people in their same city, nor less with people across the world. Today we are privileged to be able to jump on a plain a be on the other side of the world in a matter of hrs. Here at 3D World renderings, Inc. in New York, we stand in awe of how not only our 3D technology is advancing daily, not just our communication, but our ability to relate with people and convey an idea!

At our Brooklyn studio, we say we are able to see into the future and predict how it might look. In other words, we are able to see a project fully developed virtually, with our 3D renders, Real Estate 3D animations, VFX and VR tools, before a project is completed in reality. How? You may be asking? Well, we are able to communicate with our tools what needs to be done for future projects or, better yet, what exist already, and anyone can see across the globe.

On the most recent article from The Investors Business Daily they said if someone’s in Moscow and sees a picture of this home, they say, “Eh, it’s over in Malibu, all I see is this photo; I’m not enthused,” Ryan said. “But if we send them a High Resolution 3D rendering, fully immersive experience, they can really see the waves and get a feel for this house and say: ‘It’s perfect for me”.

Allow us to expand, we learned that Virtual Reality and 3D renderings or as Architects and Interior Designers would call them “Architectural Visualizations”, are able to take someone who is on the other side of the world, through an experience. They are able to imagine, feel and experience being there, without physically traveling anywhere but their browser. On a recent business lunch with a Real Estate Developer in Manhattan, NY, we learned that they were increasing their sales by expanding their market across the world using 3D & VR. They would send their potential buyer a preloaded VR set of their available listing and were able to find their client the right fit without having to travel across the country and having to go from place to place. Imagine that!

So we are happy to see how our 3D and VR technology is able to convey an idea to exactitude, and how this is helping people relate in ways they never imagine possible 30 years ago.

Next week, will go deeper on how could you implement not only 3D renders, but also add motion graphics to your upcoming presentation and secure that sale or investment and make more money!

Why we Believe the Key to Architecture is Knowing how to Express an Idea!

In a world where our time is the most value resource we might want to start to think about what are the tools that help us save the most time and resources in the long term. You want to be able to convey your idea, help your client see it, and feel emotionally connected to it.
At our Brooklyn studio we see a simple solution. You basically have to be able to explain your ideas and help your clients see what you see. Using relatable terms and using comparisons to other already existing projects. This will be easy to do with people who are visual, as they may be imagining what you say in their head as you speak. For someone who is not visual and may be more on the digital sense you may have to be more precise and speak in direct terminology.
When it comes to helping your client connect emotionally, it’s useful to help them relate to the mood or help them imagine how it will be one they have their property. You can use terms that indicate they already live there and own the place to help them connect with that possibility. You may also, and most importantly, ask them how it would be if they did indeed have own the place – you can then watch for the illumination in their face to see if they are feeling that it’s a right fit. This can also indicate that it may not be the right fit, in other words it doesn’t feel right for them, so you may want to move on to other options or ideas of what you can propose.
If all of this sound good, yet it sound like a lot of work, and you want to find out if there may be another way! Our friends at Archdaily agree that “clients often lack the ability to visualize a space before it is built”. Here at 3D World renderings, Inc. we believe that the options are limitless when it comes to conveying a message and closing the deal, nevertheless, we also know what we do works!
Here we can create that exact vision you might have for your next Real Estate Development, Interior Design or architectural project, we can set the perfect mood, and add any important detail that will convey your ideas into reality so that your client can instantly see what you’re envisioning and help them connect with your design.
We will always do our very best to get your vision on point, to create the perfect mood so that your clients are instantly connected and will want to buy.
For more information on any of our services: 3D Rendering, Architectural Visualization, Product Design, Virtual Reality, Real Estate Video or Animation & VFX, contact us for a free consultation with one of our senior designers, we will get back to you within one business day.

Renderings and VR better than Reality Itself

Reality is overrated. As a team of Virtual Reality developers and 3D rendering artists we stand firm on that statement. Why do we love Renderings and VR over real life, you might ask? “I knew designers and tech geeks were kind of weird”, am I right? Well, the answer is very simple and not that philosophical: We can modify a render with one click. 

The world of renderings and virtual reality is one you - and your clients through you - can fully control. You want to see how your dreamed living room looks under twilight? Click. There you go. You want to see a bit more lightning over the shelf? Click. You got it! Now, to be honest with you, we were just trying to hook you up a little bit with that first line. Of course reality presents a set of elements, like people and feelings, that can't be designed with a computer but consider that we work with architects, interior designers, Real Estate developers, marketers and product designers. Those are all fields where a big investment has to be done just to get the skeleton done. 

I don't even know how people used to do it back in the day. Clients trusted architects and designers just because! I mean… sure, they had their scale models and their plans but I bet a lot of clients weren't that imaginative. They couldn't picture the projects they were investing maybe their lifetime savings. Are you kidding me now? How was that even possible?! I guess I can picture my grandpa shaking the hand of the architect that built his house saying: “Oh yes, I feel it in my gut. This is one good architect and he will get it right…” I am sorry but that just sounds insane to me. 

I guess it's just different times but I do need to try it, to touch it, to feel it before I buy it. That is the only way I can be really sure that I will get what I'm paying for, as simple as that. So when old school companies come to us and don't see how important it is to let their clients get a close to perfect, fully-detailed look on how the final project will be like… I just don't get it. People want to know, people deserve to know if their ideas were translated correctly to the creatives and designers. If not… well, that's gonna be someone else´s house. 

At 3D World Renderings we are experts on 3D rendering of any type of space or product. We are also razor sharp when it comes to Virtual Reality experiences, whether the whole digital structure needs to be made from scratch or to simply digitize a real space to put it inside a headset so people can tour wherever they are. We do 3D animation and VFX as well and we do it with so much care and love because we know it's important, we know firms need it and their clients need it was well just to be sure their dreamed spaces are coming to life in the exact way they want them to. 

3D Rendering and Virtual Reality should and will be getting closer and closer to reality itself. And at some point it will be even better. Yes, better! We need it to be better so we can see more, so we can make sure every single string on the carpet, every single mosaic at the shower is just perfect and it will remain that way when it is built in the real life. Contact us and hire our renderings services so you can see how your projects come to life!

Is Designing Hard for you? We've got the Solution!

My grandma used to say that no one is good at everything. I didn't really believe her. I was sure I could be good at everything I wanted to do. It's just a matter of patience and discipline after all. As I grew up, I realized that architecture was my thing. I started drawing everyday and even if I can't say I was the best of my class, at least I had the basics well tamed. My surprise came when I found out that a big part of my college class wasn't really that into drawing. What else could it be about? I decided to mind my own biz and keep on doing my best in every course. 

I remember a building plan I had to deliver as a final exam. I worked day and night on it for over a week. I got a C+ which was alright, I didn't feel that strong in that signature. Then one of my classmates came out with a peaceful look on his face and a grade better than mine. No way I was letting that roll just like that! 

-How did you do it?! - I had to ask. 

-Did what? 

-How did you get so good at designing all of the sudden? 

-Oh, that! I paid someone to do it for me. 

My head just boiled. I felt my blood burning through my veins. “Cheater”, I thought in my mind. I didn't say another word. Just turned around and started to walk. Should I tell on him? We were too old for that but something had to be done… Justice had to prevail! 

-Listen, do you want her contact for future projects? She is a great designer and the price is quite fair. I got her working for my at my firm and if you want to... 

-Firm... -I glanced over my shoulder- What firm? 

-My firm, friend. My architecture firm. Some friends and I gathered together and we are already out there making some green, you know what I mean? 

I couldn't believe my ears. This guy being extremely less talented and passionate about architecture than me already had a firm while I was still figuring out how to apply what I was learning. I exploded! 

-How dare you?! - I howled - How can you have an architecture firm when you don't even know how to design? 

-Oh, well! It's just that I feel much more confident on sales. I bring the clients to the table and then I hire someone else to do all the hard work for me. They make money. I make money. The client is happy with the results. Everyone wins, right? 

He was right… I had to learn the bad way that you don't really have to do it all by your own because, well, you just can´t be good at everything. School has been over for a while now and at some point I even worked with this guy and became close friends. Real life doesn't really care about grades or how you hack it to get it done. The only thing life really cares is: Results. 

As a member of the 3D World Rendering team, I wanted to share this short story of how I found out the best way to keep growing. If you or your firm are having a hard time with design, 3D Animation, 3D Rendering, or VR experiences, give us a call and we will be happy to lend you a hand in whatever you are stuck with.
