St. Petersburg is the largest city in Florida that doesn’t serve as a county seat. As part of the Tampa Bay area, almost 3 million people live in this area. The community was founded in 1888 by John C. Williams and Peter Demens, who purchased the land and brought the railroad industry there respectively.
The two held a coin flip to determine who would name the community. Demens won, so he named it after his hometown of St. Petersburg, Russia. Williams would name the hotel he built in the community after Detroit, which was where his home was located.
Most folks call the community St. Pete, although it shouldn’t be confused with St. Pete Beach. The Guinness Book of World Records recognizes the community for having the most consecutive days of sunshine ever (768). When you add in the low cost of living, this place is a popular spot. That’s why your real estate listing needs to stand out.
When you have a 360-degree virtual tour created for your property, then every prospective buyer can take an interactive tour. They get to control their movements from room-to-room in real-time. That makes it feel as if it is more like an open house than a walkthrough.
There are numerous optimization benefits to consider with a virtual tour as well. You’ll have a longer time on-page with this option, a better bounce rate, and more social clicks. That leads to higher levels of organic traffic, so you eventually get more eyes on the property.
