Here’s as good a way as any to practice using Redfin’s 3-D “Walkthrough” technology (which it plans to start featuring on all its home listings): Tour a home filled with creepy characters and decor, as shown on the Inman site.
As someone who doesn’t virtually tour homes every day, I’m as good a guinea pig as any for the walkthrough. I found it mostly cool, if sometimes confusing.
I got it that clicking on a circle takes you right to the spot, and the arrows help navigate in all directions.
But there were a couple of doors that remained closed no matter how hard I bumped the arrows into them. Is that just because they didn’t have enough ghouls to go around, or would that be normal on a regular home tour? I hope the former.
The dollhouse and floorplan features are worth a look, and help reduce dizziness and disorientation if one goes a little too wild with all the 360-degree navigation.
Oh, and don’t miss what’s written on the bulletin board next to the refrigerator.
