By using both these feature, property buyers can save 90% of time by not visiting the wrong places.

Lalit Mangal, Co-Founder and CPO, CommonFloor.com said, “We live in a world where getting a 360 degree view of the house is just not enough. When property projects are marketed, very few share details pertaining to the immediate vicinity. Brochures tend to not mention closeness of a project to places like graveyards or garbage dumps. This is where Locality Virtual Tour comes-in and provides eager property seekers with a panoramic street view of the area, helping them understand the nuances of the location before they purchase/ rent/ resale a new property or a plot.”
