Lettings platform PlanetRent has partnered with virtual reality technology company The 360 View to offer virtual tours of rental properties.

“Landlords and agents who use PlanetRent will be able to instruct our partner to carry out virtual tours of their properties, and they will take care of the rest.
“Virtual property tours have seen a surge in popularity since the coronavirus lockdown, and we’ve certainly spotted a gap in the market for high-quality video virtual tours for the residential property market.”
