BOSTON - Sept. 10, 2018 - PRLog -- Real estate technology startup, Wizio (http://www.wizio.co/), has capitalized on the September 1st turnover in Boston, collecting 360 photography for hundreds of properties throughout the city. Nearly 80% of all apartments in Boston turnover from August 31st to September 4th, largely due to the 152,000 college students that begin class every fall.

Wizio partnered with some of the largest real estate brokerages and property managers in the city to create virtual tours (http://www.wizio.co/demo) of their units during this short period. Conquering this operational challenge, an undisclosed number of Wizio photographers navigated the city to increase Wizio's database to more than 5,000 unique apartment listings, representing over 5% of Boston's rental market.

"Wizio's virtual tours are the next technological step for high-demand rental markets. Their content allows our clientele to save time, view more properties, and ultimately secure the best unit for their needs in the most efficient manner," said Dave Monheit, Partner at Encore Realty.

On the property management side, Jessica Henry of Octagon Properties shared, "We wanted to capture virtual tours of as many apartments as possible during the September 1st apartment turnover period and the professionals at Wizio were extremely accommodating and easy to work with. The high-quality tours produced by Wizio will be a key marketing tool used to rent our apartments in the future."

Wizio is raising the bar for the consumer experience and provides its next-generation virtual reality platform for both apartment seekers and real estate firms looking to set themselves apart from peers in the industry. Wizio's CEO, Devon Grodkiewicz, stated: "We are excited by how receptive the real estate community and consumers have been to our technology and look forward to providing this experience for every apartment in the city."

Launched in 2015, Wizio is driven by the vision of a transparent, data-centric apartment seeking process and provides a platform for real estate professionals to manage and market properties with next-generation virtual reality content.
