Making properties easier to see and navigate in a 3D Virtual Tours is important every day. But now with the Coronavirus and social distancing being the norm, virtual tours may be the ONLY way some potential clients get to see your properties. Pictures are great, virtual tours are wonderful and video gives you a good feel for the space. But nothing lets the client experience the space like a 3D virtual tour.
The 3D, 360-degree virtual tours have been around almost as long as the internet. You have probably seen some, and maybe you didn’t like them. Up until recently, the images were poor quality and the navigation was clunky. But technology has changed- has advanced…. and then there is that Coronavirus. No one wants to go out and risk exposure when they can self-guide their own tour from the safety of their own home.
How advanced are these tours? There are a variety of providers, many are quite inexpensive. The leader in the field of virtual tours is Matterport, and that is who we are working with. It cost a little more, but quality is worth that. So what is today’s Matterport imagery like? Matterport has stepped up their game, in both quality and usability. And they have added virtual reality tours. Now, with the proper VR head gear, one can actually “walk” through the virtual environment of the home. Its almost like being there!
Take a look at a modern 3D Virtual Tour by Matterport:
Here is a tour from April 2020…
And this is a tour we did last year for AirBnB Luxe. We did a series of luxury vacation homes in Park City and Deer Valley, and as part of that package for Luxe, each home also got full Matterport virtual tours.
Our Matterport shoot can be purchased as a stand-alone product or in conjunction with our other packages. We charge $100 per 1000 sq. ft. of property for our Matterport Virtual 3D Tours.
Your tour is hosted free for the first three months; additional hosting after 90 days is $15/month, $60/6 months or $100/year, payable in advance. (Once hosting has lapsed, the tour is gone.)
Before you order, make sure you know how and where to post Matterport links on your MLS. We can post them in our property websites that comes free with your deluxe package marketing kit.
