In conversation with Tim Denbo of VirtualTourCafe, we asked a simple question: "Why should agents create a virtual tour for their listings?" Tim obliged with a compelling list of substantive reasons. After you've had a chance to check out our list, please comment below and tell us:

You're the expert – you know what works and what doesn't. That being said, when the thing your client asks for has the potential to be helpful and is relatively inexpensive, it might be prudent to follow their wishes.
