The Middle East has grown to be a global hub for luxury property with high percentage of real estate developers offering off-plan sales to international buyers, a real estate expert said.
With its extravagant 2020 city plans, the UAE will prevail in its architectural engineering exceeding the global standards of design known today, said Salman Yusuf, the founder of Takeleap, a Dubai-based digital agency with expertise in projection mapping and Augmented Reality.
The standards of real estate should surpass the traditional expectations of the client, on par with city’s innovative architecture, and offer clients an in-depth involvement in their housing experience, Yusuf said.
Building further on previous models, ‘My Virtual Home’ and ‘Zayed Communities’, launched in 2014 for Sheikh Zayed Housing project, Takeleap developed its latest technological advancement in real estate sales, offering an immersive experience in UAE.
A digital application has been created that allows users to take visual tours of potential properties with multilingual and interactive interface.
There has been a drastic increase in sales even prior to completion of the project, in case of Sheikh Zayed Housing project through use of digital tour experience, pointed out Yusuf.
Yusuf said that the ground-breaking technology of Takeleap is playing a major role in bridging gap between developers and potential buyers. Through this, customers can enter the three-dimensional cube with floor to ceiling screens of the model at hand, which offers them a complete sensory experience that is almost real. They can experience every inch of the interiors and exteriors of the homes and community. This, in turn, will help them in designing their homes to suit their individual tastes.
He further said that by allowing potential buyers to visualize their future homes at such a magnitude, will generate enough experience and support them all through their decision making process.
