View 3D Virtual Tour
With Matterport, we make it possible to experience interior spaces in new ways
How The Matterport 3D Pro Camera Works
A Matterport camera sits on a tripod and rotates 360-degrees scanning a room and collecting data that is used to create a 3D display. Several sweeps from different locations may be necessary to capture the full image and character of the space. Once you’ve got your scans, you upload the information to Matterport’s cloud server, where the images are organized, and a 3D tour of the home is assembled.
Matterport stores the rendering on their server and a portal allows you to share your 3D renderings with your clients and potential buyers. You can upload a player onto your listings page, and users can click on it to see the 3D tour (3D glasses not required!). The tour is viewable on any device from smartphones and tablets to laptops, desktops and if you have them, VR headsets like the Oculus, Samsung Gear VR or Google cardboard.
The Benefits of Matterport Technology
3D virtual home tours can be shared on any device through your existing marketing channels. Buyer can experience your home tour as if they were physically in the property. VR can help you generate momentum for not only your listing but also your business. This technology captivates buyers and motivates sellers. Matterport allows real estate agencies to:
Expand Your Market
3D imagery and multi-device delivery allows you to provide international or out of town buyers the ability to experience your listing in an immersive environment that makes it feel like they are physically present in the home. The experience is so “real” that potential buyers can develop an emotional attachment to a property.
The international market for U.S. property is red hot! Economic conditions in certain economies are creating tremendous buying opportunities for overseas buyers. Many urban and resort areas like South Florida are experiencing massive growth with international customers. Being able to deliver a photo realistic, immersive virtual experience, gives international buyers the opportunity to view properties from afar, experience them as if they were there, and can save them the time and expense of traveling to a site to tour a home.
Address Sellers Privacy Concerns
3D technology offers sellers more privacy with less foot traffic through their home. It also can act as a qualifying media. For example, buyers who have experienced a virtual tour of a property can be qualified as more serious, if they request a physical visit. With 3D listings, buyers can get a better sense of a property before they tour the home in person. It can help them get a better sense of the property and know if it meets their needs. Having this knowledge helps them come to conclusions earlier in the process so that they can make a buying decision faster. 3D virtual tours help ensure that buyers requesting viewings are serious prospects.

Highlight Reel with a Guided Tour
A “Guided Tour” is an automatic progression through the Highlight Reel once the user presses the Play button. With Guided Tours, you can take more control over the experience you provide your audience, directing them to points of interest and offering a sit-back exploration mode. (This feature is only a $15 add on)
Schematic Floor Plans
While sellers are wowed by the immersive virtual tour, they still expect you to use traditional marketing methods like floor plans. Buyers (and especially new homeowners) have come to depend on floor plans to visualize the space. Floor plans are also great for offline use. Schematic Floor Plans add to your marketing portfolio, create a complete listing presentation, acquire new sellers, engage more buyers, and ultimately lead to more sales. (Add this feature for $25)
