Slip Matterport in every time.

Is Video Part of your entire bus plan GeorgeK 1 1 monthGeorgeK (463): I find that video is still a stronger more accepted image system for Realtors. I can see the day that changes but for right now I am stay with video presentations. This is a Facebook recruiting ad that goes to a landing page with a matterport and contact forms. The feedback on this one from my fellow Realtors has been positive. https://youtu.be/4oLAU3XdujU

I too would have dropped the staircase and done a 360 at the top with a slide reel. Do a couple more 360's outside, especially when this is the first you've done this big. The extra couple minutes shooting outdoor 360's will help you market to more big boys. There are a couple times the door was closed possibly less than 10 feet away, something that doesn't appear to be an issue with blocking...

moving to a selling tool for agents Joelbcollins 26 2 monthsGlennTremain (784): Even for a quick market you can convince selling AND buying agents to get a scan because it helps you farm the market that property is in. 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. Now that he has one matterport from a sale he was a buyer agent for he then got a listing there. Now he has two and...

Is it safe to say, nobody here is contracted with companies like Virtuance and TourFactory here to sell other photo slide show options? Real estate agents in my area tend to either shoot their own photos relying on the free slideshow from Property Panorama a free offering from the...

Did Not See This One Coming jmprop 8 3 monthsjasondavidpage (37): MSP is a program geared for Matterport Service Providers - that being said, purchasing a camera for your own use wouldn't really make you a service provider - it would make you the end user. So far, all I have received by being an MSP is 4 leads, 3 of which were actually people who wanted more information about purchasing a system so Matterport sent them to me as a lead. The last lead was a real lead - but only 250 miles away. Not being approved...

Zillow is a Big Fat Troll Blocking Success Metroplex360 9 3 monthsVTLV (295): Like @Rootsyloops, I gave it a shot - joined the Zillow Preferred Photographer training, quickly got unimpressed over the quality. Chatted with Zillow about the quality of the product and changed my direction into another agent service offering over a quality offering. I've added the Zillow Walk Through service as an add on or sometimes a package to help agents get bumped up viewer standings by getting their listing clicked on with a video. I...

Is InsideMaps too good to be true? MSD 17 4 monthsHelen (358): @Hunter_InsideMaps Hi Hunter thanks for your reply but when it came to pricing I thought I was comparing pennies to pennies and not apples to apples. As I mentioned I do like your system and wish I could offer it as a cost effective solution to Matterport but that is not possible. Lets brake it down by comparing a modest 11 scans per month on an average 3000sqft homes for a year. With features of schematic floor plan and 3D model. My plan is...

I-Guide versus Inside Maps RichardBurt 11 4 monthsMetroplex360 (4384): I've argued that iGuide seems clunky to me too :) With enough people saying this, maybe they'll take some feedback and create some options :) I personally love RealVision's platform -- which differs from iGuide on a very simple 'packaging' level. I believe that RealVision's packaging and ability to work with a camera that you may already own are the two advantages over iGuide. iGuide uses brilliant technology to aid in creating an...
Drones & Price Radie842 15 4 monthsaerialpixels (94): Hi all. As you can see from my username, one of my services (was) geared at aerial photography. I started it due to my pre existing hobby of flying RC planes. Then drones came into the market like 7 years ago and started tinkering with them and adding cameras and gimbals. As Rootsyloops says, in the end, its DJI. Nobody comes close to 2nd. Dont bother unless you are a hobbyist who wants to tinker. Nowadays, I dont even have time to...

I am going to try and get this Youtube channel so if you want to see what I do next go ahead and like or subscribe. This is only 40 seconds long. https://youtu.be/_TE9A_gp_r0
Sign riders, QR codes, text link? Dolloff 8 5 monthsfrstbubble (271): There are QR code sites out there that let you change the URL without the need to use a separate shortener.

Video - Moving Furniture Not what U Think GeorgeK 1 5 monthsGeorgeK (463): Realtors are slow to get the importance of image until they see one that pleases them and it's free.

I have a studio set up in my house where I can control the light and sound a little better but I can see some lighting errors in this. For Real Estate this is pretty good but there is always room for improvement. I have several other cameras including GoPro 3plus and 4 that I put on my drone.

Secluded Property Solution Video &Matterport GeorgeK 1 7 monthsGeorgeK (463): One of the best things a Realtor can do is come up with marketing solutions for their clients. Client think inside a box, they do not follow advancements nor do they know what to demand. That is of course a statement that could create some controversy but looking at the use of Video and Matterport in our Major Market MLS people will see that it is grossly under used to share Homes. Here is another marketing video I did to try and share my...
Is Matterport contemptuous toward us? hometakes 7 7 monthsPedroAvilez (52): I agree with @Metroplex. The usd70 campaign was a rookie mistake but has show how MP deals with MSP's. Probably MP was not expecting such a negative and compreensive reaction by MSP's but I bet this will not change their agenda - just remeber what happened with 3rd party developers and all the changes in the TOS that were done. More, all this have show up how much MP understands Realtors mentality... Let's get back to MP goals and agenda. MP...

Matterport Video Stay with IT GeorgeK 1 7 monthsGeorgeK (463): I have to be honest if I am going to ever really grow my business with Matterport. That is after all the reason I purchased the system. But, daily I still run into Realtors who do not even know what Matterport is. I have elected to take the battle to the public. Some of you may have seen some of my videos. This is a new concept I am working on as I have to keep it fresh in my farm. OK. Enough of the explanation...
Photography ownership AAS 7 7 monthsGlennTremain (784): There are licensing agreements out there and I think Dan has a legal contract connection if you dig into the forums by searching.

Total Out Box SPIRITUAL Matterport Idea GeorgeK 7 7 monthsUserName (565): Countless virtual tour sites tell sellers that they need virtual tours. I'm looking for recent hard stats to prove that. The only stats I've found are several years old provided by Fusion Virtual Tours which aays, == 54% of buyers who use Realtor.com will not look at a property unless it contains a virtual tour. (National Association of Realtors, January 2006) Listings on Realtor.com receive 87% more views if they include a...
Matterport Custom VR vs Core VR Integratedman 8 7 monthsVRealExperience (115): @UserName TL : DR - If you dont care about the VR industry as a whole, know CustomVR is better due to a better transition and more of an "immersive" effect...not much more to say. I am not necessarily an expert on VR, yet; however, I have founded my business on the concept of Virtual Reality.

The Speed of Advertising is it Video GeorgeK 1 8 monthsGeorgeK (463): As part of a total marketing program I use video to drive people to my site where I get to point out the difference between someone that uses video and Matterport and someone that does not.

Hope this gives someone out there in "Internet Land" and idea or two. https://youtu.be/iOUzX31VZIU
Use a dolly under the tripod davidpylyp 8 8 monthsMarcel (262): I love using a dolly. Granted I mainly do commercial scans on average 10000sq ft/1000 sqm. Just push and move. I'm a big fella, but lifting and moving a camera 200-300 times can give you a pain in the biceps. You also very seldom have to re-level the camera. I highly recommend a dolly with big wheels.
MP Facebook AD 4 Display App and a Video GeorgeK 3 8 monthsGeorgeK (463): I looked for the advertisement again but it has dropped off my Facebook page, it was a sponsored "feed' and those fall off. If I see it again I will post it. It was most likely directed or to Realtors so I bet I see it again. The person has to write to them to get the app.

As for the images, you are 100% correct they are HDR. I find that for Real Estate that they work best because of the detail you can get without having window blowout. Don't get me wrong this can be achieved in many other ways, but for me, having multiple photographers shooting, it seems this is most consistent. Post processing Is a long...

Amazing 3D animation - Yantram Studio lisahinson 5 8 monthsUserName (565): I know nothing about drones, but I've been fascinated by motion through 3D room models for years. You can do it in a Matterport model but results are not like what we see in your 3D model video. In a Matterport model, you have to use a keyboard or fingers to move short distances at a time. The end result is a video that stops frequently. Here's what's near the top of my Matterport wish list .. ...

Even though we have approached them to collaborate and now don't want to talk with us. Just my 2 cents. Ron

Matterport is now advertising to the public. CarlosFHdz 3 1 yearCarlosFHdz (538): 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 of it...

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.

MLS grantmuller 16 2 yearsseanminor (40): In our Houston MLS we have to put the Matterport link in the virtual tour spot. But like Craig says, you need to draw attention to the link of the buyer may not even see the VT link.
Anybody body know virtualwalkthrough.com? gofastpro 15 2 yearsal9901 (55): I have seen this too. I wouldn't get too caught up with these 360 photo tours. As Gary said, the future is 3D. I met with one of the countries largest real estate brokers here and they were trying to work out how much it cost for them to back out of a deal they signed with a 360 photo company because they liked the Matterport captures so much better. 360 photos have terrible problems with fish-eye; the photo is projected on to a 3D sphere and...

Feedback on Squarespace websites Using 3Ds? SummerMayhugh 12 2 yearsDoyleRealtor (511): Theirs includes the HD photos and floor plans in price. I owned a Matterport before, and was still hiring a professional photographer to shoot stills because the screen grabs from matterport weren't up to our standards. Now I'm getting everything all in one and am saving time by just having them do it. I do miss the doll house but in long run I believe this is a better consumer experience

Embed the showcase asset into Facebook? Canada 2 2 yearscraigsauer (880): There are several threads here about this issue, which you can find by using the search funcion here. There's no straightforward way to get it to work, but workarounds have been found. 1.

The upside is that you get publicity to your site. 2. If you...

Competition WarrenVandal 12 2 yearsGarySnyder (1216): Hi Warren There are no plans on Google using the Matterport camera. I tried to get it approved but due to the closed nature of the MP system there was no way that Google would even consider it. Another issue with MP is you can not blur faces or other details which are strictly enforces when shooting for Google. There are other devices coming online that may be approved to shoot BV jobs like the wide range of 360 cameras so watch this...
