Hi All,

This topic is inspired by ...

I'm always met with resistance usually with the thinking that they want the client to contact them to see the house again rather than go through a virtual tour. They will have more interaction with the client.

The showcase app is a great idea. What other ideas are out there to keep the realtor and their clients engaged with the tour while the property is on the market?

The sole key to expansion of 3D and 360° Tours is public awareness. I still believe that:

1) is foolish not to promote themselves as the only major aggregator that features Matterport tours. They should advertise it to the public, make the 3D View button much bigger and add a “search for listings with 3D Tours” on the landing page. (Redfin uses MP but they won’t allow MP tours made by others to be displayed).

2) Zillow should open their “3D Home” link to all other 3D and 360° Tours. Their own system is inferior and their primary goal is eyeballs, so they should give buyers as many reasons as possible to use the site. They have long permitted professional videos to use the “Zillow video” link, so the 3D Home link should likewise by open to other presentations.

3) Matterport must focus their own advertising on the general public, not MSPs (we already know) or RE agents (they already don’t care). These tours will take off only when the public expects and demands them alongside (or in place of) traditional photos. If I was selling a house, any agent not committing to leveraging EVERY media format would be shown the door.

This Thanksgiving I give thanks to you. You truly are amazing with your site here and your informative responses. I truly don't know how you find time to sleep or have a home life. I wouldn't be as successful in this business without you and this forum. Thank you again.
