Investors and future homeowners rejoice! Buying property can still be done – all in the safety of one’s own home. That’s right, the future is here, and virtual tours might just be the answer to an immediate and pressing property problem (VR goggles not necessary). We have compiled 10 property developers in Malaysia that offer virtual tours of completed and upcoming projects.

On average, a person visits a site/property between two to four times before making a purchase decision. With virtual tours of completed or up and coming properties for sale, you don’t need to expose yourself unnecessarily; do your initial recce of properties virtually from a safe place before narrowing the list down and choosing one to move forward with.

Wash your hands, save your masks and let’s find your newest property purchase!
