At Apartments.com, we are always looking for ways to stay ahead of the curve. With the recent adoption of CoreVR, Apartments.com is taking a significant leap forward in enhancing user experience and fueling the Virtual Reality (VR) ecosystem. We will soon be offering both 3D and VR experiences for all of our Matterport Spaces, we’re providing customers with a superior experience that is more immersive and real world.

Apartments.com is the premier apartment rentals resource for renters, property managers and owners. Apartments.com visitors will soon be able to utilize virtual reality headsets (Samsung’s GearVR or Google Cardboard) to experience a potential apartment home. Apartments.com currently has more than 60,000 3D tours available on more than 20,000 properties. Apartments.com has the most 3D tours of any online apartment listing site.

Using this technology, we are delivering a better rental experience for consumers by showcasing a more realistic image of prospective spaces, and helping to narrow the search down to two or three top properties before even stepping outside their front door.

With hundreds of thousands of apartment listings, Apartments.com offers the largest inventory available with the most advanced search tools renters want, plus 3D interactive tours, hundreds of thousands of consumer reviews and neighborhood content. Visit, www.apartments.com for more information.
