Montgomery Homes reinvents display home experience through virtual reality

Newcastle based Montgomery Homes has introduced a new virtual reality tour experience as part of its commitment to allowing buyers the opportunity to visualise every inch of their new property before it is built.

Unlike other VR which requires participants to be stationary and tethered, Montgomery Homes’ VR allows users to physically walk in an unobstructed space in the real world with no cords or cables.

At a realistic 1:1 scale of the property, potential viewers can experience every area of the house, giving an authentic understanding of the size, space, scale, light, connection and flow of each room. It gives buyers the ability to walk around the home and count steps for how large each room is, allowing them to understand the full proportion and immerse themselves into their future home as it will be built.

The new technology has been made possible through a partnership with EnvisionVR and is available for eleven of the new home builder’s designs. Viewers can experience the virtual display home via VR headset at several Montgomery Homes locations, including in the Newcastle and Hunter region.

Additionally, they will have the opportunity to continue their virtual display home tour from the comfort of their couch. The tablet and mobile app (EnvisionVR app) allows customers to use their own devices as a window into the virtual display home.

Viewers can still enjoy the virtual display home in a small space, with the ability to move from room to room. Equally, viewers can travel to their vacant block of land and utilise the EnvisionVR app to gain an understanding of what the facade of their home will look like from their screen.

Montgomery Homes Managing Director, Jamie Montgomery said the introduction of Virtual Reality display homes gives customers an added peace of mind when making their purchase.

“Overall Montgomery Homes has over 250 designs available, but with only 28 homes physically on display, it can be difficult for customers to visualise their potential new home. Our new virtual display offering removes that barrier, with our 1:1 scale critical for customers to get a complete sense of the size and layout of each room to help inform their buying decision,” Jamie said.

“As a market leader, it’s vital that we continue to innovate and embrace new technology to provide the best possible service to our customers.”

The VR experience will be available in Montgomery Home’s Hunter/Newcastle locations in Thornton, Gateshead and Vineyard.
