In the case of Real Estate agents, if every 9 out of 10 homebuyers are looking for a house online, what are you going to show them? It is not enough to show professional photography, viewers want to see more! A 3D tour allows a potential buyer to navigate freely around the house and get the feeling as if they were there. This virtual tour is like giving them a virtual key in which the user can visit the house as many times as he wants. Once inside, they can explore the entire space and access to all angles of the house as if they were there, but from the comfort of their couch.

This makes the properties more attractive to potential clients and eliminates unnecessary visits. By adding more accessible choices to buyers, Real estate agents have found that virtual tours have helped a lot in the sale of their homes.

Following 3 simple Steps: STAGING, SCANNING AND DELIVERING FINAL PRODUCT
First, STAGING. Our professional photographer will arrive punctual. They will help staging if necessary before scanning the property. It is necessary that the property looks nice and uncluttered.
The second part is, SCAN. This is how it works. The operator places the Pro 2 in every eight to 10 feet in the room in order to do multiple scans. Placing the camera is important so the flow of the tour similates a real one, that’s why capturing strategic angles will turn out in a better results. For each scan, the Matterport camera Pro 2 makes one full 360-degree rotation and captures millions of 3D data points, which Matterport’s software stitches together to create a 3D virtual photo view, that has depth-sensitivity. .
Meanwhile, timing of scan completion can vary depending on the size of a house. Usually, it can take between 30 minutes to 2 hours approximately. An average size home of 2,000 square feet takes one to two hours to scan depending if the house is furnished or not.
