Cruden Homes is utilizing virtual reality technology to overcome the problem of giving buyers who snap up a new home off plan long before a showhome is available, a realistic view of what their new home will look like, writes Beverely Brown.

While this is not intended to replace a showhome, it fills the interim gap and allows the viewer to slip on a headset and "walk" from room to room and between floors while sitting in the information suite. Currently operating at Cruden’s Baron’s Vale development, off London Road in the east end of Glasgow – where many of the two and three bedroomed terraced and semi-detached houses are being sold off plan – I was invited to test it out. Having "walked" around a beautifully furnished two bedroomed home, I can vouch for its effectiveness – way better than a CGI image or video.
