Video: Go from Static to Stellar with Zillow 3D Home tours and interactive floor plans | Video courtesy of Zillow YouTube Channel | Monday, 18 October 2021 | Revised: 26 October 2021

Hi All,

"... your only added cost is what you pay your photographer."
"... book with your photographer today."


Also note the statistics about Zillow 3D Home tours...

Your thoughts?

Wow! Very punchy 2-minute pitch! This could be something to send to real estate agents with your offer of services.

I will have to give the floor plan a go again and see if that feature is backup and running

I reached out to my Zillow contacts and currently Zillow 3D Home interactive floor plans are currently only available in Denver/Boulder.

Other markets will be coming on later

Wow! That seems weird since the video did not have a disclaimer about availability ... Hmmm.

I think one of the real key differentiators that makes Matterport such a superior platform, is that there's more than one scan and reference points in any room when professionally scanned by a Matterport pro like us. I see a lot of local matterport 3D tours where there's a bare minimum of scans in every room, and for the average Joe or Julie home buyer, they really don't know the difference... Until they stumble across a 2000 square foot home with the basement scanned and 99 scan points. It's an entirely different experience.

And I think that's maybe why I switched from Zillow 3D home to just telling my agents to stick to the Matterport 3D tour, because it appears front and center in any Zillow listing, and puts people inside their future home as if they're really there.

@GETMYVR

I still offer both Zillow and Matterport and it's not uncommon for me to shoot both on a listing. While yes a Matterport, or a couple other 360 tours can be added to Zillow. Listings with a Zillow 3D home tour on Zillow get better placement. While Matterport is the superior quality tour both platforms have their place. Of the agents I work with that use Matterport their favorite feature is the ability to download the tour via showcase for offline use for listing presentations where wifi or cellular service may be spotty

For the budget minded agents The Zillow 3D home tour does pack a lot of "bang for the buck" and I do not mind shooting them as it's less time on site & decent margins for me as there is no overhead for said tours

@lilnitsch

Thanks for sharing. I could imagine:

1. Zillow will (eventually) charge for floor plans (sooner than later)
2. Photographers that offered Zillow Floor Plan for free (will be upset because they should have charged)

@lilnitsch

I remember receiving a Zillow photographer survey where they asked the question (something like) - If Zillow charged for these floor plans, how much would you be willing to pay?. So, Zillow was obviously thinking about if to charge.

So, I still believe that Zillow will charge.

That's what makes horse races!

@DanSmigrod

the ability to be able to charge for the floor plan will greatly depend on them being able to consistently deliver the floor plans repeatedly in a timely manner ~ the few homes I was able to shoot the floor plans for when this was up and running earlier this year homes were often under contract before plans were available ~ taking on average 2 to 3 weeks to come back with the floor plan ~ It will be a matter of time before one of these companies gets the right AI to create the floor plans right from the tour data

Above are the color floor plans from a Matterport tour. I ordered the floor plans from My Visual Listings before midnight (EDT) and received them the next morning.

The $25 color floor plan order also included this free Single Property Website from My Visual Listings:

@DanSmigrod Dan, you are coming through with the goods here again! I just checked out the site for this service. Some very tantalizing offers! For $57, they will perform the video editing on clips for a video up to a total of 6 minutes! I just spent several hours producing something very similar to the video samples on their website. This could be a game-changer for me.

Since I see that you are interviewing them on Thursday, is this a new WGAN partner company?

Question for you to ask during Thursday's interview: "Can I take their finished product (MP4 file), drop it into my video editor and add some additional tweaks like more moving graphic titles, end card, etc.? And then upload it again to their site? That would provide some optional changes, too, while a property is listed.

Some observations:
FIRST VIDEO ORDER IS FREE!!! Can't beat that!...
Get a free single-page website ($15 value) with a video order ($57) or 2D floorplan ($25).
Their color 2D floorplan at $25 beats Matterport's 2D black and white at $19.99

Second question to ask during your interview: I notice that the home page for the company shows a color 2D picture (second from top in the Floor Plan Services section) that has a camera icon in each room. Please inquire if that is linking to a photo or a single 360 panorama.

I will watch for your interview and transcript! Thank you again for bringing consistent value to your members!

Thank you for your kind note.

Yes. My Visual Listings is a new Sponsor of We Get Around Network.

Unless you video editing - it brings you joy – seems like it would be easy-peasy to outsource and free-up your time.

Yes. Great question. I will confirm that you receive the mp4 file (so you can tweak) and that you can re-upload to your Single Property Website.

It's linked to a photo in the photo gallery (that you upload). I will ask if you can upload a 360 for the photo gallery.

Yes, this service is fast becoming our #1 service for real estate photographers getting into offerring videos as they don't have to have any video editing experience at all and it saves countless hours of editing for those who have been doing these themselves

Yes you can as it is free to upload any custom video(s) to any Single Property Website you have already active.

Here is a sample on our website that shows you our interactive floorplan. When you order a floorplan, you receive a free single property website with it and our staff creates the floor plans during during the night, uploads them to the single property website, names each floor(ex;Floor 1, 2 etc) and attaches the photos icons onto the plans by using our interactive floorpan wizard to crag the photos from your photo gallery. This is all done and ready for you by early morning usually before you get up. So Yes, the icons are links to photos from your gallery.

@Dataventurer

The interactive floor plan links to photos: not 360s. @MyVisualListings confirmed this after the show.

Enjoy your weekend,
