Sotheby's is hoping to making home-buying more immersive by using the AR Curate app. Sotheby's International Realty hopes that its AR virtual staging app, powered by roOomy, will allow users to better envision their home before purchasing a house. The Curate app promises to revolutionize the buying and selling experience and will give a leg up to real estate agents and new homeowners alike.

The Curate app brings a home's virtual staging images into 3D augmented reality and allows users to see furniture in the space and more around it using their phones. Built using ARCore, Google’s new augmented reality software platform, Curate will utilize the staging area tech set by roOomy to help buyers better visualize a space. The app will also include screenshot capabilities that will allow potential buyers the chance to capture and store images of AR furniture for better reference and potential buying down the line.
