SPS is an approved Virtual Tour provider for Realtor.com®
If you have paid Realtor.com for a Showcase Agent Enhancement service, then there is NO fee for linking your Single Property Sites as the Tour link on your listing.
Homestore operates Realtor.com, and they have a fee-per-listing service called PicturePath which is designed to enhance the visibility of your listings by linking a virtual tour to it. This fee currently is $24.00 PER TOUR for this service. We collect this fee and pass the majority of it along to Homestore as it is their policy to charge for this service only through approved virtual tour companies, rather than directly charging the Realtor who has the listing. This service is completely optional on each of your listings.
When you pay for PicturePath, your listing will appear when people choose to "Display listings with virtual tours first."
According to Homestore, listings with virtual tours receive 40% more views than listings without a virtual tour. So you're gaining advertising visibility for your seller and your listing, along with pre-qualifying more buyers.
SPS automatically creates an unbranded version of your Property Website that can then used as the virtual tour link for your listing in the MLS.
Unbranded Tour links comply with the following MLS rules and requirements:
Every Single Property Site you create has the ability to be displayed automatically without branding if that is required by your MLS.
See the Listings Promotion section when you EDIT your site for details on how to use this special link.
