Reliable statistics show that Matterport 3D Tours accomplish three basic needs for you, the Realtor.

  1. They shorten the sales cycle

  2. Increase the sales price, and

  3. Increase the number of listings that an agent will get because they use the technology.

However, one frequently heard comment is that Matterport 3D Tours are boring for the casual looker and don't go far enough with providing useful information for the seriously looking homebuyer. Snap2Close has chosen to tackle this challenging problem with the creation of our Enhanced Matterport 3D Tours. Tours that entertain, educate and entice homebuyers.

Here’s what we add to make our Enhanced Matterport Tour Advantages!

  1. Voiceover and music track with background music. This can play once or loop every 5 to 10 minutes.

  2. Interactive image-based floor plan. We can use a schematic 2D floor plan as well. Watch the while circle move through the home's image-based floor plan. The floor plan can also be rotated. (upper-right corner of the screen)

  3. The Details Panel can include a logo. (upper-left corner of the screen)

  4. A quick and easy to use "View By Room" feature (upper-left corner of the screen)

  5. Mattertags list, search box, and links. We probably have too many in this sample but we want to show what is possible. (upper-left corner of the screen)

  6. Room titles and descriptions can be added for each room or scan position. (lower-left corner of the screen)

  7. Calibrated compass showing which direction the viewer is looking at. (lower-left corner of the screen)

  8. The ability to hide or show Mattertags (circles) as you tour the home.

  9. The ability to capture and download any view as a stand-alone image.

  10. The ability to mute the background music/voiceover.

Each of these features has a place with Matterport 3D Tours when used for real estate. After all, the goal is to educate and entice homebuyers. We believe that our Enhanced Matterport 3D Tours do exactly that.

Enhanced Matterport 3D Tours During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Enhanced Matterport 3D Virtual Tours captured with Matterport PRO2 4K 3D cameras are vitally important during this COVID-19 Pandemic. A Matterport PRO2 4K 3D camera allows homebuyers to have a truly immersive walkthrough experience. The tours are also incredibly interactive without sacrificing quality. You can view the space from virtually any angle and get a 360-degree view while exploring from a first-person viewpoint and at 4K quality.

In many ways it is better than an open house because it allows homebuyers to view your virtual open house 24 hours a day 7 days a week without ever leaving their home. They can view this 3D representation on a desktop computer, a mobile device or with a virtual-reality headset for an even more immersive experience.

Home appraisals required by a lender generally include a site visit, which is not possible in some parts of the country where this is not considered an essential service. Many appraisers are refusing to enter homes or at the least very hesitant to do so. Having a Matterport 3D Tour allows the appraisers to tour your listing from a desktop computer. The appraiser could also refer to the Matterport Tour as part of their appraisal when submitted.

Inspectors could also refer to the Matterport 3D Tour when sharing their reports with clients. This is especially true if the inspector was sharing their screen with the potential buyers during the report.

Why Matterport Pro2 3D Camera vs. other 360° camera system

The Matterport 3D Tour is technically in a class all by itself and one of the industry's leaders in Photogrammetry. The PRO2 Model 250 3D Camera uses three separate high quality lenses and a capture resolution of 4K square per skybox face, shoots 5 frame brackets for HDR, and has an auto rotating motor that takes 25 seconds to rotate 360°s. That translates into 18 shots x 5 bracket HDR = 90 captures vs a 360° camera’s 2. Plus, each shot is 134 MegaPixels vs 15 MegaPixels for a 360° camera. (Click here if you want to learn more about the camera's specifications.)

Additionally, it uses six infrared transmitters and receivers that literally maps the items seen and creates a three dimensional technically accurate textured mesh of the space when uploaded to their central computer system. Their Cortex artificial intelligence system, which is a deep learning neural network, creates robust and accurate 3D spatial data. Cortex actually makes their all-in-one 3D data platform the most powerful on the market.

Plus, their sophisticated computational photography algorithms automatically adjusts white balance and color correction, HDR tone mapping, denoising, haze removal, sharpening, saturation and luminance of each image captured which results in a rich, professional grade looking digital twin of the home scanned.

This innovative technology allows homebuyers to literally walk through the home at 5 to 8 foot intervals.

Professional Matterpor Pro2 3D Camera much more expensive than a professional DSLR camera.

Matterport Floor Plans

Schematic Floor Plans add to your marketing portfolio, create a complete listing presentation, acquire new sellers, engage more buyers, and ultimately lead to more sales.

While Matterport Schematic Floor Plans are accurate to 1 or 2 percent if the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera can visually scan the areas inside of closets, pantries, etc. If the home is vacant and you specifically want all doors open then a Matterport Schematic Floor Plan is extremely economical and the right choice for you. However, if you want all closet doors and pantry doors closed during the scan then the accuracy significantly drops off to as much as 10%. While it is still a good representation of the flow of the home and the approximate sizes, we believe that a a CubiCasa Floor Plan will more accurately capture the true dimensions of the home.

Video of Matterport 3D Tour

Snap2Close offers a short video of the Enhanced Matterport 3D Tour as an additional service. For $49 we will create a video with music that tours the home without the viewer having to do any additional work. This video can be embedded in both your branded and unbranded tour property websites which are used as virtual tour links on AMLS. The option allows a quick initial preview and then, if the viewer is truly interested they can manually tour the property though the actual Matterport True 3D Tour. See the sample to the left.
