Matterport is the world’s leader in 3D Tours allowing homebuyers to literally walk through a home and view the complete interior coupled with very high resolution 360° images of the exterior. Homebuyers can view three-dimensional dollhouse views from every angle.
Matterport literally creates a digital twin of the captured home. Over the last 10 years, they have created more than 15 billion digital twins of homes, offices, and other facilities, even the Sistine Chapel. These tours literally allow homebuyers to walk through the entire home on a 24-hour basis. The results of these 3D tours are truly extraordinary.
Snap2Close provides its clients with two versions of Matterport 3D Tour. Each version is thoroughly enhanced with special features that no Arizona competitor offers, bringing more life and flexibility to your 3D Tours and allowing homebuyers a novel shopping experience.
Our special features include background music, a floor plan image map that shows your progress while touring the home, a compass, a photo capture tool, a view by area feature, and more.
The Standard Matterport Tour is included with our Platinum Package and as a stand alone service. The Standard Matterport 3D Tour allow Snap2Close to create 3D Tours much faster than our Architectural Matterport 3D Tours. This speed is welcomed by most all listing Realtors and their customers as it means less time in the home. The speedier capture is because of Matterport’s artificial intelligence software.
Matterport’s Cortex AI software set a standard for creating three-dimensional homes and structures using infrared measured data from billions of facilities scanned over the last 10 years. Using their significant data structure history and unique features of Photogrammetry, Matterport is able to create amazing three-dimensional room mesh structures and digital twins of homes.
SAMPLE STANDARD TOUR
Architectural Matterport tours are captured with a higher resolution Pro2 Model 250 which is a three-dimensional camera that captures measurements with infrared cameras. The 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°. That translates into 18 shots x 5 bracket HDR = 90 captures vs a 360° camera’s 2 shots. Plus, each shot is 134 MegaPixels. The Architectural Tour is available as an add on to our Platinum Package and as stand alone service.
The precise infrared measurements are ideal for larger commercial real estate shoots requiring more detailed OBJ 3D mess data for programs like AutoCAD, Revit, etc. However, if you still want the Pro2 Version you will find a category to click on in the add-on services of our menu to request the Pro 3D Tour.

While Matterport 3D Tours are perfect in themselves, Snap2Close believes in enhancing our client’s tours by adding additional software amenity features.
Each of these features has a place with Matterport 3D Tours when used for real estate. After all, the goal is to educate and entice homebuyers. We believe that our Enhanced Matterport 3D Tours do exactly that.
Statistics show that 77% of homebuyers would like the ability to be able to take Virtual Reality House Tours before actually visiting prospective homes. Knowledge of exactly what you have to offer will increase clients’ confidence in their decision to come view the listing and add to the professionalism of your image. It also shows people you are on top of the latest industry trends and technologies. As a Realtor who uses professional Matterport True 3D Tours it also helps give an edge you need over competitors.
Listings with Matterport True 3D Tours also simplifies the shopping process of homebuyers that live too far away or are too busy to do tours in person. By pro-actively meeting these homebuyers needs, you're setting yourself up for success.
Smart agents now share their Matterport True 3D Tour links directly with others via email and social media. The tours can be seen by anyone on any device which increases your customer engagement and reach.
Matterport 3D Tours remain online for either six months or less if the home is sold sooner. If you want to increase the hosting time it will cost $49 per year.
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.
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 CubiCasa Floor Plan will more accurately capture the true dimensions of the home.
