It may have been a dream come true for the owner of the world ‘most popular real estate website’ but a virtual reality experience called “Avalanche” may soon become a reality.
The website, which was designed to provide “a new reality experience” to the people of New Jersey, is shutting down at the end of the month due to its owners’ financial struggles.
The owners of the site have not been able to meet the requirements to remain online, which means they can no longer accept payments, and are asking that people not donate to their fund to help them pay their bills, the website’s website states.
But instead of just offering a virtual experience, “Avexion” is bringing the same experience to the real world, allowing people to “play” for real.
“Our goal is to provide the ultimate virtual reality experiential experience,” the developers wrote in a post to their Facebook page.
“In this game, people can become real.
You can experience real life as if you were there, with real people, in real places, living and working together, and making real connections, memories, and stories.”
For those who have not yet played “Ava”, it is essentially a real estate simulation.
You are tasked with finding homes, buying them, and managing them in order to become the most successful real estate seller in the city.
You need to rent them out, make sure they stay in the area and manage them, build properties and keep the properties running smoothly.
You can play through the game, but you will not be able to pay rent.
There are also no sales or mortgages involved.
“AveXion” was designed by “Trufit” and “Cinematic Real Estate” from the US, and is being developed by “Brick & Mortar”.
Avalanches owner Jeff Davis told The New York Times that he started developing “Alevon” in January after seeing that virtual reality was “being used for a lot of different things”.
“I was like, ‘That’s really cool,'” he said.
“Theres a lot people out there that really don’t have any idea about virtual reality.”
He said it was “so fun to get to do a lot more things”.
