Buying a property is perhaps the most expensive investment of their lives for many people. So conducting a thorough check on the property before buying is critical; there’s a term for this – property title research. One must do it to ensure that the property he is going to buy checks the following –
- Carries a faultless title
- Free from any kind of charges
- RERA registered
The main objective for Title Search and due diligence is to get answers to the following questions:
- Does the seller have the legal authority to sell the property?
- Does the seller acquire all the rights to sell the property?
- Is the property free from all kinds of charges?
- What are the restrictions on property use?
The title search also prevents the buyer from getting hoodwinked into things like mistaking a property’s super area for its carpet area, which is a big bone of contention between buyers and real estate sellers. The carpet area is the area enclosed within the walls of the flat where the buyer is going to live in. Super area or saleable area is the carpet area of the flat plus the space that covers common amenities in the property complex like corridor, elevators, staircases, and lobby area. Builders try to deceive buyers by touting their project’s super area. But what the buyer gets to use is the carpet area which can be up to 70% of the super area. So it’s important to have a clear idea of the carpet area of the property. This is just one of the aspects of property buying among many others; if any of those fall through the cracks, it can coil the buyer up in future troubles and ugly legal battles. Therefore, it’s recommended that property buyers take help from experts like Flatworld Solutions for a thorough property title search before putting in the money.
Speaking of due diligence on the property before buying, virtual tours are gaining traction with buyers. Here’s how virtual tours development in real estate can help one to close more deals without any ordeals.

How Does One Implement Virtual Tour Technology in his Real Estate Business?
Here are some simple tips to do the same:
- Getting a camera
One needs to choose a camera that clicks 3D images. After that, the first thing is to collate the images to create a 360 video. When it comes to creating virtual tours, one essential element is frames per second or FPS. As the users will be surveying the property through virtual reality, a low FPS will lead to lagging. This will adversely affect the user experience and confuse.
Pro tip – One should look for a camera that can clock a minimum of 90 FPS; anything less can lead to disorientation and a bad (grainy) experience for the user.
- Planning the shots
One should make a list of every room in the house that is going to be a part of the virtual tour. To get the best shots, one should place the camera in the center of the room as from that vantage point the camera will be able to capture most details.
- Implementing the virtual tour
After obtaining all the images, one has to upload the images into the virtual tour creation software. The software will stitch the static images together and create 3D virtual tours. One can also use the software to assemble panoramic photos for a 360-degree tour.
