Nathan Cool's report on Harvard Business Review's take on Virtual Tours Dataventurer 2 2 daysGETMYVR (1778): @Dataventurer From my perspective, 3d tours are CRITICAL and I'll explain why. First is real engagement and then conversion. Nothing is better. And 3d tours are not important to fetch a higher sales price, on the contrary, it is solely because they elevate the home buying experience online exponentially, for buyers. And because they place 100% of potential buyers directly inside a property remotely, on demand, is the #2 reason. The main purpose...

Your experience with Zillow Listing Media Services? And, ....? Deano 12 10 monthsDeano (158): Zillow,, Homelight, Upnest and virtually everyone sells consumers to agents for 35% of the commission. It's really ridiculous, but agents are OK with it so the race to the bottom begins... The thing is that consumers COULD negotiate with agents and get this 35% for themselves.

There are other providers that also offer the lead gen before entering the tour. But that also is flawed as the client does not get verified.

Anyone else experiencing Real Estate slow down? Shawn_P 13 3 yearsimmersivespaces (1229): South Florida is booming, but the issue we have here is lack of inventory. Many agents sell homes before they can even get them listed in the MLS or get any imaging done. (We had a house sell while we were on property doing a capture.) We simply redirected our services to focus on the new home buyer, offering Matterport for insurance documentation and interior design services. Even with the low number of listing shoots, we've pretty much...

Superimposing Building render on photograph Liam_Tayler 4 3 yearsHarlanHambright (2073): I was doing this in the late 1980s. I made the covers of 3 CADD magazines. it's really simple to do these days, unlike then when an 800 MB external drive cost $750. And virtual memory did not exist. And you had to configure your SCSI terminals correctly. It requires an expertise in perspective construction and lots of other stuff.

U.S. Median Home Asking Prices Hit a New High, Up 10% From 12 Months Ago DanSmigrod 3 3 yearsron0987 (2704): The only thing as a photograph that I would see as an impact would be days on market. If the average would be prices up, inventory down that agents would not purchase an add on of virtual tours. if days on market average is down in your area. There might be a wait and see approach to add video or virtual tours and or any extras. Especially in this market.

Problem With High Resolution 2D Snapshots TheRealtor 14 3 yearstoddwaddington (526): Thanks, @DanSmigrod.

The quality of the image still doesn't match my standard high res images, but it is interesting to...

You shouldn't have problems with the Z1 provided that you are using a decent stitcher.

Does anybody here charge for Matterport by the room, rather than footage? peanutismint 18 3 yearsGETMYVR (1778): I spent 20 years as a digital marketing director for automotive dealerships, and a constant gripe for salespeople was that it seemed like car dealerships were always in a race to the bottom for pricing in their advertising.

That's when you had to go...

Pricing in South Florida Joephoto114 18 3 yearsExpertise (1178): We owned a relatively large R/E brokerage for over a decade.

How Asteroom got me to switch from Matterport. jwaltphotography 16 3 yearsjwaltphotography (55): I have not experienced this. We have shot more than 2 dozen properties since we recently implemented this. Our realtors are much happier with the time savings since I can shoot any house in 15 minutes or less. I have yet to hear a buyer state that "This tour wasn't immersive enough". IN fact, most buyers are layman in terms of cameras and cannot tell the difference. A matterport has consistent misalignment issues in post and it often...

Unless you uploaded more than 10 a month. One month you're told a video will help your tour tour rank first on Zillow Search results. Then they fade off and not longer rank high making you a liar.

I am offering the same for AUD$160 per hour with a minimum of 1 hour order. That's a bit over $100 in USD but not too much over.

How Long for a 2,000 SQ FT (ish) home with Ricoh Theta Z1 on Matterport? jimfelder 4 4 yearsJonJ (1760): If the property is staged and ready to go, I would say 10-15 minutes for every 1000 sqft. Allocate additional time for setup (initial walk-through, adjusting items/blinds and turning on lights) and take down if that is something you are responsible for. The above estimate assumes that there are no distractions and does include time for additional 360 views.
Google Street View and builder model homes BenAdgie 4 4 yearsTakedaSan (222): If someone will live on this home in the future, you cannot put it on Google Street View. But if it's just a model home for sales purposes and nobody will live on it, you can put it on Street View. It's a Google's privacy question. Takeda

Camera for Construction Videos ? ConstructionVideos 4 4 yearsHome3D (3554): @ConstructionVideos - I concur! I've been very happy using the Insta360 One X for a huge construction project her in LA. Mostly I use it on the end of their "extended selfing stick" to put the camera in all sorts of places otherwise impossible, and then I extract HD video in edit, aiming the view where I see most value. However, I'd probably buy the new Insta360 One R today, due to greater flexibility, longer battery life and...
Creating new portal BULLA66 4 4 yearsbryanhscott (843): @BULLA66 Your portal concept sounds like another way for a listing agent, or perhaps an unrepresented owner/seller to advertise a listing. Assuming your portal does bring the buyer, and further assuming the listing agent is under agreement with the owner/seller to offer a buyer-agent commission side, then you bring the buyer and get paid the buyer-agent commission at closing. This works if you, or someone on your team is licensed properly to...

Need advice about the purchase of a DSLR or Mirrorless camera. Mungo 5 4 yearsJonJ (1760): Hi @Mungo, If you are looking for a budget setup, I would recommend a Canon T6 paired with the Canon 10-18mm f4.5/5.6. This is a great starting place that will not break the bank. If you are able to spend a little more money, or if you can find a used camera, I would recommend stepping up to either a Canon 70D or 80D. These cameras have much higher resolution and have the additional feature of being able to bracket up to 9 images without the...

Question of the Day: Critque This Matterport 3D Tour: $40,500,000 Listing DanSmigrod 14 4 yearsBillRobinson (85): Thanks for the feedback as it is always helpful to get input from other professionals. I did the scanning, but not the presentation. Mirrors - When I first started scanning 7 years ago with the Beta 'egg' scanner, I had to cover all mirrors with white paper before scanning a property. The early software couldn't handle a mirror. So my 'relationship' may come from another point of view. Also, my background prior to MP was interior design,...

Any Way Matterport Will Fix Tags & Realtor MLS use Issue Soon 3SevensStudio 20 5 yearsWingman (4158): 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...

To enhance dynamic range, after firmware V1.05.17 upgrade, ALETA S2C offers 3 functions: WDR, HDR, and AEB. Here we explain the method of each function. 1.

Was disappointing to hear as this would be a great feature to give my realtors that have huge properties with more than one building, so unless I can find a way around this, it looks...

Offline viewer for Matterport? maire 4 5 yearsCarlosFHdz (605): I think the best way to document something long term for that type of project is through 360 photos. All “tours” that are online are “hosted” and that’s where the risk is for long term availability for your specific client. 360 photos can be handled by many applications, saved long term, and they’ll own them, so it’s up to them to keep offline. My 2 cents.

Pricing Question (none Matterport) BrianM 7 5 yearsron0987 (2704): The only concern I have would be and I do not know if you have a signed contract you use that has "a hold harmless" clause that if the potential bidder uses the photos in a way to back out of a sale point out an issue with the listing of the property at the auction. Then the seller goes after you. Did you offer the seller a chance to completely view all unedited shots?

Real Estate photog survey CFster 9 5 yearsProperty3dNZ (617): Clearly the NZ market is very different - its unusual to not have a video, drone or twilight photography. In the 2 years I spent doing real estate photography in Perth, Australia we didn't do video but there was a high demand for pole and twilight photography. I don't know how accurate this guys findings are - my thoughts are he has a very defined audience of just real estate photographers.
Cupix pricing - more expensive than you think CFster 14 6 yearsGarySnyder (2017): If you host Vista yourself and you learn how to use it correctly the transition between pano's is very immersive and quick.

(Versus CUPIX and Matterport) CFster 15 6 yearsGarySnyder (2017): I've use 3D Vista for 2 years now and I can tell you there is nothing that compares to it if you really use all of its functionally. You can create a VT’s that looks and feels just like MP with hotspots and even turn items in you photos into hotspots which can launch anything. You can drop in any image you want or blur an image. You have complete control of every pano. To top it off you can do the same magic with 360 videos, try that with...

I believe that this type of service is mainly suitable for Local Realtors and Local Clients, so the agent could provide the service of sending a loaded VR Headset to a VIP client bringing many property choices to where he/she is, instead of taking the client to see all available choices, then when the client likes something he/she can then visit that choice. However i imagine that sending a...

The vast majority of the employers out there (not all) want to do two things: use you and make a lot of money off of you.

Embedding Matterport in Rightmove? bellyjelly 2 6 yearsmp2fp (506): I`ve seen a property in Basingstoke back in August, but they´ve removed it now.

By that, I mean it's glitcy and blurry until it renders. im not saying this is a Matterport issue it's an apple issue. If apple gives up the ability to screen record on their next IOS release.

360 Views and Snapshots Only? skyblue1 6 7 yearsMetroplex360 (9435): @skyblue1 I personally think that that's a good idea. Matterport may consider adding 'Core360' - a mode in Workshop that allows free shooting of 360s with GeoCoordinates from the Pro-2 camera. No 3D Model. If they want, they could treat 100 360s as 1 model. They could then have a special player for their Matterport Core 360 that doesn't utilize 3D. It would also be nice if Matterport had a mode where you could shoot an outside tour with...
Meshing drone video with Matterport 3D dhome510 7 7 yearsRootsyloops (322): I do a lot of drone to Matterport transitions. This one is through the front door: I've done a couple where I descend to the rooftop above my Matterport staring point and then transition to a fly-in from Matterport dollhouse to fpv view. I haven't timed it perfectly but that sounds like the effect you might be going for.

For businesses that are scaling and serving many Realtors who want a more affordable option, you can be very successful by choosing iGuide over Matterport. If you want a 3D Tour that requires about an hour on-site per 1500 SQFT (my average), then Matterport is your only option for a 3D tour with a floorplan and...

I have convinced buyer agents to get a matterport for a gated community that he wishes he had more listings in. His main competitor has just been there a long time but doesn't use matterport.

How to Add our own Logo? Wyzlo 14 8 yearsVTLV (2858): Stick with the promise of making the single property website pages for the agents and get more clicks to your site as they share your page or link. Keyword up your site for now as being the Only Matterport Service Provider in your country for now. Perhaps later you can get traffic from their sharing the link and make some coin when the opportunity for your logo comes around. My agent pages look like this

Cgranston 8 8 yearsron0987 (2704): Well, it is nice to know that Matterport is looking ahead, but I have to disagree with the "Pro" version of the camera because we were sold this camera as a Pro version two years ago with the plan to upgrade it with more features. I also would love to see a little more interaction from Matterport, I do not expect them to spill the beans on what they are doing but would love a little better interaction on where we are on the list of...

Real Estate Photographer Strategic Partnersh Jmoore 7 8 yearsron0987 (2704): I have heard this concern over and over and just like Property3dNZ and VTLV, the home needs to be open house ready. Partnering with still photographers is fine but most of the medium to high end photographers are using Matterport in our area and we have beat them on price. Even though we have approached them to collaborate and now don't want to talk with us. Just my 2 cents. Ron
Matterport Launches Schematic Floor Plans Maria 15 8 yearsProperty3dNZ (617): @Noel WOW! That's ridiculous! I have worked closely with MP for at least 8 months before metric measurements were released - the ridiculous thing is that the very first release of MP had metric measurements! I have actually been told during a skype meeting by Katharine Nevins (who works in the Product Management team) that it automatically creates in metric and they have to convert it to imperial! So frustrating!

I like the Matterport technology but compared to my virtual...
Matterport is now advertising to the public. CarlosFHdz 3 8 yearsCarlosFHdz (605): Absolutely, the big investment of a camera, monthly fee, learning the workshop, for an average realtor is too much.

It’s also better if you can avoid it not to be so close to certain objects. Think...

why a Sunken Living Room Becomes a Multi-Floor? Mikesobay 17 8 yearsMaria (106): I've had this issue pop up on occasion. Besides a sunk in living area become its own floor, we have also seen a floor of a split level home become an extension of the first floor. From my discussion with Matterport on the issue, they are tweaking their processing algorithms to prevent/reduce the occurrences of wrong floor issue. Back up your iPad scans so you can resubmit them later. Until then, turning of the floors is the best solution.
