You can view Transported tours in fully immersive virtual reality with the Samsung Gear VR mobile headset. It's inexpensive, high quality, and easy to bring with you whenever you go.
Samsung Gear VR is great for:
- Showing off VR at a listing presentation,
- Shopping for homes with a new client, or
- Lending your headset to a buyer, so they can shop at home.
How It Works
The Samsung Gear VR works in conjunction with (and requires) a Samsung phone. You can choose from: Galaxy S8, S8+, S7, S7 edge, Note5, S6 edge+, S6, S6 edge.
Transported recommends the Galaxy S7 or S8.
There's no need to activate the phone with cellular service if you only want to use it on WiFi. Once you view a home on WiFi, the Transported app saves that tour so it can be viewed offline when WiFi is not available.
How to Buy a Samsung Gear VR
The Samsung Gear VR is available at many retail stores or websites where electronics are sold. It's easy to buy one from Amazon.
(Amazon also offers last year's model and refurbished ones for $35-50.)
How to Buy a Galaxy S7 or S8
Getting a pre-owned Galaxy S7 or S8 is an affordable way to get started. There are many ways to do this, but we like the website Swappa.
If you'd like a slightly better display and improved performance, then consider the Galaxy S8.
Once you have your new VR headset set up, search for Transported in the Oculus Store to get started!
