Matterport True 3D Virtual Tours - 24 Hour Virtual Open House

There can be little doubt that Matterport True 3D Virtual Tours captured with Matterport PRO2 4K 3D cameras are vitally important during this COVID-19 Pandemic. A Matterport PRO2 4K 3D camera allows homebuyers to have a truly immersive walkthrough experience. The Tours are also very interactive without sacrificing quality. You can view the space from virtually any angle and get a 360-degree view while exploring from a first-person viewpoint and at 4K quality.

In many ways it is better than an open house because it allows homebuyers to view your virtual open house 24 hours a day 7 days a week. They can view this 3D representation on a desktop computer, a mobile device or with a virtual-reality headset for an even more immersive experience.

Matterport True 3D Tours Helps Appraisers & Inspectors During COVID-19 Pandemic

Home appraisals required by a lender generally include a site visit, which is not possible in some parts of the country where this is not considered an essential service. While we are not yet to that point in Arizona, many appraisers are refusing to enter homes or at the least very hesitant to do so. Having a Matterport 3D Tour allows the appraisers to tour your listing from his desktop computer. The appraiser could also refer to the Matterport Tour as part of his appraisal when submitted.

Inspectors could also refer to the Matterport 3D Tour when sharing their reports with clients. This is especially true if the inspector was sharing his screen with the potential buyers during his report.

 

Why Matterport Pro2 3D Camera vs. other 360° camera systems

The Matterport 3D Tour is technically in a class all by itself and one of the industry's leaders in Photogrammetry. It’s rather expensive PRO2 Model 250 3D Camera uses three separate high quality lenses and a capture resolution of 4K square per skybox face, shoots 5 frame brackets for HDR, and has an auto rotating motor that takes 25 seconds to rotate 360°s. That translates into 18 shots x 5 bracket HDR = 90 captures vs a 360° camera’s 2. Plus, each shot is 134 MegaPixels vs 15 MegaPixels for a 360° camera. (Click here if you want to learn more about the camera's specifications.)

Additionally, it uses six infrared transmitters and receivers that literally maps the items seen and creates a three dimensional technically accurate textured mesh of the space when uploaded to their central computer system. Their Cortex artificial intelligence system, which is a deep learning neural network, creates robust and accurate 3D spatial data. Cortex actually makes their all-in-one 3D data platform the most powerful on the market.

Plus, their sophisticated computational photography algorithms automatically adjusts white balance and color correction, HDR tone mapping, denoising, haze removal, sharpening, saturation and luminance of each image captured which results in a rich, professional grade looking digital twin of the home scanned.

This innovative technology allows homebuyers to literally walk through the home at 5 to 8 foot intervals. It is truly an amazing technology that homebuyers genuinely appreciate.

 

Matterport Floor Plans

While sellers are wowed by by the immersive virtual tour, they still expect you 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 off-line 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.

Note: While Matterport Schematic Floor Plans are accurate to 1 or 2 percent if the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera can visually scan the areas inside of closets, pantries, etc. If the home is vacant and you specifically want all doors open then a Matterport Schematic Floor Plan is extremely economical and the right choice for you. However, if you want all closet doors and pantry doors closed during the scan then the accuracy significantly drops off to as much as 10%. While it is still a good representation of the flow of the home and the approximate sizes, we believe that a a CubiCasa Floor Plan will more accurately capture the true dimensions of the home.

 

Video of Matterport True 3D Tour

Snap2Close offers a short video of the Matterport 3D Tour as an additional service. For $49 we will create a video with music that literally tours the home without the viewer having to do any additionally work. This video can be embedded in both your branded and unbranded tour property websites which are used as virtual tour links on AMLS. The option allows a quick initial preview and then, if the viewer is truly interested, manually tour the property though the actual Matterport True 3D Tour. See the sample to the left.

 

 

 

 

 

Enhanced Matterport 3D Tours

Snap2Close also offers two Enhanced Matterport 3D Tours which include music, a compass, and an interactive floor plan. These affordable enhancements allow the viewers/users to actually see where they are on the floor plan as they navigate through the home. These two versions consist of a floor plan image generated by Matterport or a 2D architectural floor plan.

Our image-based Matterport Floor Plan Enhancement only an additional $10.

To view the floor plans click on the play button for the Matterport tour below and then click on the small and almost transparent looking floor plan on the top right of the tour. This action will expand the floor plan. You can grab and drag the floor plan to change its size by clicking on the bottom left corner of the floor plan.

 

 

 

Our Architectural 2D Floor Plan Enhancement is an additional $40. This additional cost is based upon the amount of time it requires our staff to match the 2D plan to the Matterport Scans. This also assumes that you have already selected either a CubiCasa or Matterport 2D Floor Plan as an additional option when scheduling your photoshoot.
