theta 360 for real estate

I'm about to buy one for real estate photography. Is there anyone out there already doing this and what are some things to know?

I don't think it has the image quality needed. Low light performance is noise, dynamic range is limited, strong purple fringing.

And the viewing format is not universal - you either need to embed code or provide a link. For real estate you'd want to mount it on a tripod and operate it via a smartphone app that connects via wifi. But wifi will kill the battery pretty quickly so you'd better bring a charger.

It's a fun toy and all, but not quite a pro tool for real estate.

It's great if you're a buyer, the Theta really helps you remember the layout of each house. Could potentially be used for listings as well, but if you need high-res images I'd go for an ultra-wide lens like the Samyang 10mm.
