Snap2Close is not the originator of Interactive Floor Plans. It is however the only real estate photography company in the U.S. that has developed its own system that allows Realtors to affordably add interactive floor plans to their listings. We do this through our property websites or as a separate virtual tour link.

First let's clarify what a true Interactive Floor Plan is. It uses an easily understood basic floor plan with camera icons strategically placed in each room or area of the home, including the front and back yards. Each camera icon is positioned at the same angle on the floor plan that the photographer captured his photograph. When the homebuyer moves a mouse over the camera icon the exact photograph taken at that camera location automatically opens up. When the homebuyer moves the mouse over the next camera location, a new photo opens up. Every camera location shown on the floor plan is linked with a photo taken at that location.

The sample below is from a 1725 sq. ft. home with twenty-seven photographs. Notice that you can virtually and quickly walk through the entire home in less than 2 minutes.
