Can we create tours from our scanned properties to view with headsets such as 'I am Cardboard'?

Google Cardboard is not supported yet, only the Samsung Gear VR which is a more expensive investment

Yes. Matterport 3D Showcase Tours can be converted to Matterport VR Beta (here).

As @Tosolini noted, today (16 January 2016), Matterport only supports Samsung Gear VR. That said, I imagine that Matterport will support other head mounted devices, such as Google Cardboard.

In this guest We Get Around blog post, the Matterport VR team talks about how to optimize models for VR conversion.

Matterport Photographers: How to Optimize Your 3D Tours for Gear VR

Here are MUG Forum threads about VR and Virtual Reality.

I signed up for the beta of this new VR authoring system: http://www.instavr.co/

I haven't tested it yet, but it seems that the direction of these tools is to lower the barrier of entry by using a drag & drop UI and package together little apps. This wouldn't work with MP anyway, unless you get creative and slice a 3D model into various videos linked together from a menu. Still not a full MP experience.
