Tampa, Fl June 23, 2008.
Thinking of putting your house on the market and trying to find a way to stick out from the crowd of homes on the market? Well you might want to try Motion VR. MotionVR has developed a leading edge proprietary technology that is redefining today’s 360º online virtual tour business, and which has established a “first-of-its-kind” marketing tool. Unlike standard low-tech 360º panoramic tours, MotionVR provides online visitors with a “walk-through” tour allowing viewers to obtain a real perspective of what they would actually see if visiting a property or facility in-person. I've started to offer this to my higher priced properties and the results have been positive. But don't take my word for it, you can click on the click below and test drive it yourself.

Only 14 percent of the 1,237 respondents owned their previous residence and moved to a newly purchased home, and the majority (52 percent) went from one rental situation to another. The survey shows that most people relocate for a new job, a transfer within their current job or to seek a new lifestyle, including retirement. About half the moves were from one state to another. Two-thirds moved more than 100 miles and 54 percent moved more than 500 miles away. California is the number one destination state with 6 percent of the total sample moving there from another state, while 5 percent of all relocations move to Florida, followed by Texas (4 percent), New York (3 percent) and Georgia (2 percent).
