With Matterport, we make it possible to experience interior spaces in new ways
How The Matterport 3D Pro Camera Works
A 3D-Virtual Tour starts with Matterport camera sitting on a tripod and rotating 360-degrees scanning a room. This process allows for the collection of 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. The cloud server is where the images are organized, and a 3D tour of the home is assembled.
Matterport stores the rendering and a portal allows you to share the 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. Of course you an also use VR headsets if you have one.
The Benefits of Matterport Technology
3D virtual home tours can be shared on any device through your existing marketing channels. Buyers 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 allows you to provide out of town buyers, the ability to experience your listing in an immersive environment. This can make 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.
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.
Features of our 3D – Virtual Tour
3D Virtual Tours is an online experience for home buyers to move through a property and see it from any angle. Our distinct Dollhouse view gives them a completely unique sense of the property.
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.
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.
3D-Virtual Tours have become more and more popular in today’s world. They are great for both small and big spaces as well as residential and commercial properties.
