The Middle East has become the global hub for luxury property with a high percentage of real estate developers offering off plan sales to international buyers. With its extravagant 2020 city plans, UAE will prevail in its architectural engineering exceeding the global standards of design we know today. In parallel to the city’s innovative architecture, standards of real estate must surpass the client’s traditional expectations and provide them with an in-depth involvement of their housing experience.

SZHP’s contribution to the market has therefore set out to develop a top-of-the line virtual reality experience. Thereby, setting the universal benchmark for the manner in which real estate presentations are conducted.

Middle East based creative technology agency TAKELEAP developed their most recent technological advance in real estate sales giving an immersive experience in the UAE. Building upon their previous models, “My Virtual Home” and “Zayed Communities”, launched in 2014 for Sheikh Zayed Housing project, a digital application was developed. Thus, allowing users to take visual tours of potential properties with a multilingual and interactive interface. Founder of TAKELEAP, Salman Yusuf, states “Through the Sheikh Zayed Housing project, we saw a drastic increase in interest and sales even prior to the completion of project, through our digital tour experience.” He adds, “We believe that allowing potential buyers to visualize their future homes at this magnitude can generate an incomparable experience and support them throughout their decision making process”.

Customers are able to enter this 3 dimensional cube with floor to ceiling screens of the model at hand offering them a full sensory experience close enough to almost touch. They will be able to experience every inch of the interiors as well as the exteriors of the house and community. This will assist them in designing their homes to their tastes accordingly. Takeleap’s groundbreaking technology is playing a significant role in bridging the gap between the developers and the potential buyers.
