360 Degree images
Walton and Hipkiss have been trialling an innovative new way to display online photography – one that is unique to us and can make your property stand out from the crowd on property portals.
Although we will still continue to take our normal high-quality photographs we have decided to take a step up from everyone else and also use our unique 360° images on our website portal. This will enable a prospective buyer to take a 360° view of a digital photograph, including the floor and ceiling, giving them a fuller perspective of the property.
We have been testing 360° photography with a selection of properties and landmarks over the past five weeks. One of them is St. Mary’s Church in Kidderminster, who kindly allowed us to use this technology in the main church and at the top of the main tower. This gave us a 360° photograph of the local area. We shared this image on our Facebook page to gauge the reaction and not only did the church have more visitors, but the response was amazing!

Now the 360° images have been fully tested, we are ready to show you what a huge difference this will make when you are researching a property you may wish to purchase. We have already made available 360° images on a select number of properties on our website to demonstrate how well they work in practice.
We know that photographs are an enormous factor in selling or letting a property and this new technology will give you an even greater advantage – enabling a prospective purchaser to move virtually around the rooms in your house from the comfort of their own home. It will give them an entirely different – and greater – perspective.
Our website automatically recognises the device being used and alters the view accordingly. When using your mobile phone not only can you move the image around with your finger, but the image will also move dynamically as you move the phone left, right, up or down. Please note that any interested parties who have access to our Facebook page will also be able to view these pictures, enabling us to reach a wide spread audience. We promote all of our new properties on our social media pages days before they are available anywhere else, to register any early interest and tease applicants with our amazing shots of your property!
Customers who have already benefited from our trials have said it is ‘truly amazing’ and ‘it makes you feel as if you are in the room itself.’
Walton and Hipkiss have been established since 1929 and are determined to go the extra mile to make a difference. Not only do we offer 360° photography, but we also use a specially crafted drone that produces breath-taking ariel shots that prove particularly beneficial in rural locations (subject to CAA regulations). If you are having difficulty selling or letting your property with your current agent, why not book a FREE no obligation marketing valuation with us and see the difference our forward- thinking technology can make!
