Finding your dream home can be an arduous venture that usually requires time and travel, when all you really want to do is relax and enjoy your retirement planning. Dataw Island, a coastal South Carolina gated golf and country club community, has just introduced a 3D walk-through tour of their main facilities.
The 3D tours are accessible without downloading any software, and although they are also offering pre-recorded videos, the real fun is “walking” through the space on your own, using the simple point-and-click navigation to discover Dataw. A great way to learn more about one of the top South Carolina gated communities.
“Dataw Island is one of the Lowcountry’s true gems that attracts members from all across the U.S., and even overseas,” says Dataw General Manager Ted Bartlett. “Many people search online when looking for their perfect retirement destination, and in true Dataw form, we strive to use new technology to provide convenience and ease to our members’ — and potential members — in all that we do. This is a great tool that simplifies search and makes it easy for current and potential members to discover Dataw.”
First in the region and ahead of the national curve, regional real estate company ERA Evergreen has invested in the high-tech equipment to produce the 3D tours that Dataw is using to showcase their property. ERA Evergreen will utilize the service to enhance the buyer experience by capturing unique images of their real estate listings.
With a full 90% of home buyers searching online, 86% using video to find out more about a specific community, and 70% using video to tour the inside of homes (according to a study by Realtor.org), ERA Evergreen’s Owner/Broker Michael Gonzalez recognized a need for this service, saying “House-hunters have so many choices to sift through, and their time is at a premium. We especially see that home-seekers from out of the area benefit from being able to preview properties from afar; we hope to make the process easier and more convenient for them to find their dream home in their ideal community.”
Dataw Island is a gated golf community located fifteen minutes outside of historic downtown Beaufort. The island features two recently renovated golf courses by designers Tom Fazio and Arthur Hills, a tennis center, a community center with workout and massage facilities, two restaurants and croquet lawns. The community has also been ranked the number one best retirement destination in South Carolina for May — September of 2015 by www.bestretirementdestinations.com.
