Question of the Day: How is the MLS ransomware attack affecting you? DanSmigrod 2 8 monthsGETMYVR (1850): It is possible for companies to initiate IP blocks to specific countries in territories of concern. For example, if you're an MLS that services upper Wisconsin for example, the whole world doesn't need access to your data. Through services such as your web host or cloudflare, there is an ability to mitigate wondering eyes from finding you in the first place.
Airbnb and matterport updates? Anyone? pixelray 15 11 monthsfotoguy (835): This is an older post but I will add my two cents. Two workarounds I found is to create a QR code for the tour and have the home owner include it in with their photos. I added text at the the bottom of code that stated "Virtual Tour". The other way is have the owner put the URL in the description of the property using some creative writing such as using the word dot instead of the symbol and not putting in the www. Airbnb may catch...
MLS Size Issue. Your thoughts how to fix please? fotoguy 4 1 yearGETMYVR (1850): @fotoguy try saving the files 2000 PX on the long edge at 300 DPI and no larger than one megabyte. I used to save it the same size that you have but discovered magic when I got a tip from somebody. Give it a try and see if that works better. They definitely get reduced. However, I noticed by uploading the larger size you get less degradation of the quality if it's saved correctly. And the higher quality saved image at 300 DPI makes it print...
Question of the Day: Do 3rd Party Matterport Links Work in Your MLS? DanSmigrod 11 1 yearPhilly (83): Great info, again. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Very helpful given your experience
Workflow to get greatest exposure to real estate websites? Philly 5 1 yearPhilly (83): Oh wow, that is news to me. Thanks for the heads up. Seems like a totally backwards move on their part...Zillow's carousel presentation of media was pretty sharp with a nice UI. My guess is burying the media in facts and figures will just make consumers navigate to sites where the media is presented easier, not hidden down the page
Homejab says Video beats 3D tours in article GETMYVR 6 1 yearlilnitsch (5424): @Dataventurer Agreed. Syndication of media assets isn't a given as many agents do not know what can go where. Then there is knowing the rules of the MLS in regards to Branding many MLS's require that the public facing assets be unbranded so, that they can be shared with the buyers agent's clients without the listing agents contact info attached. I to offer a single property website both branded and unbranded as well as delivering both...

Pocket Listings: $5,000 Fine Begins 1 Feb 2020 DanSmigrod 10 3 yearsDanSmigrod (29855): Inman (5 February 2021) Court throws out pocket listing lawsuit against NAR and MLSs - Judge says failed to plausibly allege the National Association of Realtors' Clear Cooperation Policy harms competition and consumers. To the contrary, the policy has 'some plainly pro-competitive aspects' Your thoughts on how this affects real estate photographers? Dan --- Free 90 day trial of Inman with this WGAN Affiliate Code

Inman: What's standing in the way of a national MLS? DanSmigrod 7 3 yearsExpertise (1178): I'm not sure where you're getting this figure from? If the average TOTAL commission nationwide were $12,000 ($240k x 5%), then you're saying that Zillow is getting $4200 per transaction? Yeah, no. What Zillow does is aggregate buyer leads and sell them to the highest agent bidder. A pretty valuable service. Once upon a time, that's what brokers did.

Thoughts on Virtual Tours for MLS "Coming Soon" before "Formally Listed"? DanSmigrod 4 3 yearslilnitsch (5424): I have shot a handful of Zillow 3D home tours prior to a listing going live for 1 agent and a small team. One of the handful was actually bought by the agent & the others eventually went into the MLS With this handful of listings they were all convenient for me to shoot in between jobs and were quick in & out jobs that I did for $150 (typically my minimum to show up is $300) The small team I have a small stock in so, we often will...
Given the pandemic, why has Zillow not jumped on this opportunity? DanSmigrod 10 4 yearslilnitsch (5424): @DanSmigrod Matterport is about to head off to middle school and still is a startup looking for dollars. While I am vested in Matterport gear and genuinely like their tours they need to get their stuff together or they will be a what ever happened to. Someone will buy their technology only to part it out.

Why are walk-through videos called virtual tours on the MLS? michaelr 10 4 yearsjericreson (84): @CharlesHH And there are professional level tours between the "cheap tours" - also and a Matterport Tour. They aren't necessarily a compromise, especially not in quality when shot professionally with the right equipment, however they can be more cost effective to use, as it isn't necessary to stop every few yards to take another scan. A Matterport tour isn't lowered in value, rather, it is reserved for it's own appropriate use. I...

MLS Competing With MSPs by Offering Two Free Months Matterport Starter Plan DanSmigrod 4 4 yearsHarlanHambright (2073): All technology is going to evolve. Moore’s law. Get what you can while you can, differentiate yourself, don’t get sore at tech developments. Tech has always brought capabilities to dumber people. When Pagemaker came out graphic designers thought they were doomed. Technology just allows uneducated people to create bad stuff more efficiently. And you as a msp have to keep moving too. You don’t want to become a barrel stave maker. Keep...
Publish Matterport to Partners ( is working. is not) Fmodjr1913 10 4 yearsFmodjr1913 (37): Yea, from what I understand, the ONLY way to get a Matterport tour on Zillow is by listing it on an MLS that integrates automatically. Otherwise, you can't include a link and there is no designated spot or way to include directly. I'm assuming this is Zillow's way of making sure thier much less impressive Zillow Virtual Tours get attention. I sure wish there was a way to get some answers or support. There's nothing on the FAQ's on any of the...
Matterport & Custom Tours on MLS and other Real Estate Platforms? JayInLA 7 4 yearshomefinders3d (349): That's interesting, we can't even put a branded tour on our mls. Our MLS also added several video and tour fields and I think some agents are a little confused at where to put the links.
Question of the Day: What size images does your MLS require? DanSmigrod 7 4 yearsDanSmigrod (29855): @Chemistrydoc @lilnitsch @GETMYVR @rzphotoman Thank you for your replies. Too bad the various MLS services do not standardize sizes across the USA and Canada. I could imagine that you already have your workflow for how you do your resizing. The following may be helpful to others ... ✓ RELA platform includes auto Image Resizing - RELA Website | RELA for Photographers Dan
Brokerage websites pulling tours not showing up in MLS.

Could that be the issue with your MLS also, possibly?

How accurate are Matterport 2D Schematic Floor Plans? Use SQ FT in MLS? DouglasMeyers 4 5 yearsJwbuckl (337): @DouglasMeyers To be clear, each room is measured from the inside of the wall to the inside of the opposite wall. However, the total sq footage at the bottom is from the inside of the exterior wall to the inside of the opposite exterior wall, which does include all the walls in between. It’s also possible to request the floor plan team provide a total that accounts for the 6" thickness of the exterior wall, which I think is the...

embed codes, video and MLS fotoguy 2 5 yearsWingman (4176): It is html code that uses Iframe tag. Do you have a youtube channel? If you do, you can upload it on your channel and once it is there click Share under your video. Youtube will show a small popup window and there will be <> Embed in front of Facebook. Click on it and it will open another popup with an embed code. Vimeo probably offers the same feature. If for some reason MLS does not want it to be embed from youtube/vimeo you...
Which 3D Tour Platforms are compliant with this MSL Requirement? DanSmigrod 5 5 years3SevensStudio (67): @GlennTremain Thank you Glenn. I will reach out to the compliance department. I hope they will say that it is ok, but I could also see them being like no you cant use it because that stupid tiny, tiny little Matterport Symbol next to the help/terms in the bottom right corner can direct you to Matterports website to purchase their products. Fingers crossed. Thank you for the advice and for offering to let me reach back out to you should I get...
Any Way Matterport Will Fix Tags & Realtor MLS use Issue Soon 3SevensStudio 20 5 yearsWingman (4176): Thanks for explanation about MLS systems but it still seems to be quite dogi on MLS system terms. Matterport tours are always being loaded from the Matterport cloud hence it is linked to "other website" anyway. They seem to be kind of ok with that but want all other links to be removed. I would try to talk with a higher level of support or some kind of supervisor at MLS. The problem they have created for the OP is ridiculous as he is...

Not Syncing: and BlueImmersiveMedia 2 5 yearsDanSmigrod (29855): @BlueImmersiveMedia A workaround would be to duplicate your model. Matterport does not charge extra for the reprocessing. They do count the additional model towards your plan. I could imagine that if you use WP3D Models and/or MPEmbed, this creates an addition work for you. Hopefully, Matterport will step up to the plate with a solution. Dan

Will MLS take an unbranded Matterport Tour for the listing? fotoguy 3 6 yearsBernardhhi (204): #fotoguy Here is an example of using the Unbranded tour on a recently sold listing. I wanted to the viewer to be able to use the Mattertag links I placed as elevator buttons to travel up and down floors. Because the MLS tour disables tags, Unbranded was the way to go. As I mentioned before, As long as you do not abuse the use of embedded links you should be fine. Click To View Example Bernie Timms President Hilton Head Island Real...
MLS Image Parameters leeverdon 3 6 yearsimmersivespaces (1229): MLS services vary on what they accept for image sizes. Your best bet is to contact your local MLS provider and ask to speak to the person who manages it. We have 6 different MLS providers in our area, and each is different. One of them here will not accept images larger than 720x680 (which I personally find ludicrous). In most cases, the MLS service will accept any file size for upload and they will automatically process the file to the size...
Why don't photographers lobby the MLS... Metroplex360 11 6 yearsimmersivespaces (1229): @Metroplex360 I have had that discussion with several MLS providers over the years. Their concern is that delivering larger photos will use up too many system resources and bandwidth. A rather copout answer I always thought considering nearly all of them use CDN delivery for most of their content these days.

Tours on Zillow have the height shortened 3SixtyNow 8 6 yearsMediaTrends360 (19): I’m sorry you’re experiencing trouble with your shoot but it looks great on my iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Pro2 10.5 inch. Great Job on the walkthrough. Btw, are you trying to view it in Landscape mode? If so it will shorten the height automatically. However you can sill pan up and down, and look in all directions to view the entire space.
