Get a Real Feel for the Place with a Virtual TourFebruary 15, 2019
In a hurry to buy, but don’t have time for a visit? Not to worry. With Matterport’s 3D virtual tours, you can visit dozens of properties from the comfort of your own home, which is great for buyers and sellers alike. If you’re curious about how it works and how you could benefit, read on.
How it works
Matterport 3D Showcase is a smart tool that lets you walk through a house or condo remotely from your computer, phone, or tablet. The system uses a camera that scans the home from every angle in a few hours to create full 360° images. Once they’re ready, potential buyers can simply click on directional arrows to move through the space. It’s a highly realistic virtual experience that makes you feel like you’re physically touring the home.
The system also generates something called a dollhouse view—a complete 3D model of the home that allows potential buyers to see how everything fits together.
This is a great way for buyers to get a first impression of a property without having to make the trip. Being able to tour a property in a matter of minutes means they can quickly hone on in the ones that truly meet their needs.
For sellers, virtual tours are a great way to generate interest and get motivated, serious buyers to visit the property while doing away with unnecessary showings. Plus, it’s a great way to target foreign buyers—a fast‑growing segment of Montreal’s real estate market. And it increases the likelihood that a buyer will form an emotional attachment to the property, turning their interest into an offer and speeding up the sale.
For real estate agents, this is a powerful tool for showing buyer clients numerous properties in a way that’s fast and impactful. Seller clients, meanwhile, reap the benefits of custom marketing.
To see how it all comes together, take a look at these virtual tours:
The evidence speaks for itself: Matterport 3D Showcase is a win‑win‑win for sellers, future buyers, and real estate professionals. Of course it’s only a first step: there’s nothing better than a real showing to see if a property really has everything you’re looking for.
