Thats a hard one I use both methods.
I use a SQM price for unusual and commercial jobs and a Per bedroom price for realestate.
I am currently trying to pitch a national contract that would be the per bedroom model.

Would it be cheeky to ask for your pricing model...?
Have your "issues" been resolved and are you getting interest?
I do appreciate your time

Yes but when there are more cameras and people offering services you get more agents wanting scans which means more business and of late there are quite a few more cameras in Australia and I assume NZ

Hey Everyone... Fuggedaboutit!!!

Im Howard from 3D VUZ here in Brooklyn NY! I'm an active real estate broker for 30 years, and recently invested in Matterport to land more listings and help my fellow agents here at FILLMORE REAL ESTATE! My wife is also a Realtor here on Long Island, where we live...

Matterport 3D Tours, Dan Smigrod, Ross Peterson (WP3D), Shawn May (Photographer), and finally, Glenn Tremain, (Nail Soup Media) have all helped me get started, and I'm doing well so far. This is amazing technology, and I want to say THANK YOU to all 5 of you for making this happen, and for always being there to answer a question or 75!

I'm available to shoot anywhere in the NYC/Long Island/NJ, and will pay great referral fees if you're able to refer me.

Check out my amazing website www.3dvuz.com, created by Nail Soup Media! Good Luck To You ALL!

Hello everyone !

It's been 1 month now that we have our first Matterport camera,
and we did 17 3D Spaces so far,
in the amazing Venice (Italy).
We have 40 more to do in the next month.

I must admit we learned very quickly to use it,
our first target was trying to do a "perfect dollhouse" so we had to do a lot of extra scans to hide in post-production.

Venice have a lot of anarchic architecture (never straight), and furniture is very rich and complicated.
Also outdoor terraces and altanas (Venetian terrace on rooftop) are complicated to do with Matterport because of sunlight.

We created a small portfolio here:
http://www.elan42.com/services/3d-360-vr/

It will grow in the next weeks,
we plan to do also industrial and naval 3D photography + art galleries very soon.

I also plan to scan San Marco Square because I live 1 minute from it, so I could do it quite conveniently.

Thanks,
bye,
Alvise Nicoletti and Fabio Bortot

Hello All,

New here. I've had my Matterport for a month now and completed my first scan last week. I'm working on creating my website right now and figured this site would be a great resource. I am operating as Home Scan Direct along with the accompanying domain name.

Here's a link to my first scan. 3492 Sq Ft and took me about 3 hours with 84 scans.



You can check out our website at www.WeFilm3D.com



We look forward to scanning the world together!

My name is Doug Gould. My partner in life and business is Jim 'J.R.' Reading. Together we have owned another photography business by the name of Legends Sports Photography in Saugatuck-Douglas, Michigan. www.legendsmichigan.com

We saw the MP and were intrigued. We went to the Chicago MP office and had a great meeting where we could see the camera first hand and get a demonstration of how it worked. It worked and we bought it.
The new business is called Two Guys Photography. Nothing techy about the name but our new logo gives an indication of 360 and 3D. A local real estate agent already uses us for DSLR photography so we have at least a foot in the door. Two scans scheduled for next week already!

I see huge potential for MP beyond the real estate market. It will be exciting to try out the new ideas and see how they fly. I really wish I could find a way to incorporate the MP into my sports business but as of yet, haven't found a way.

Our first scan was just posted on the forum. I'm anxious to hear feedback since we've only had the camera in our possession for 48 hours.

Looking forward to reading all your posts and learning great things!

fullpreview private msg quote post Address this user
Hi, my name is Luke and I'm a Matterport addict. - We're all supposed to "admit" that, right?

My primary business is Broker Model - I am the principal broker and we are based in the Design District of Miami, FL. I decided to open a second business, Full Preview, for the purpose of offering 3D Showcases to sellers, business owners and agents outside of my brokerage. It made more sense to purchase the equipment and is more cost effective for us to volume list at more competitive commission rates with all inclusive 3D Tours.

Anyway... here is our latest Modern Home in Coral Springs



Thanks for letting me be a part of this group, Dan!

Being that you only had your camera for a month and had done 17 scans did you get your
interest and business prior to the camera arriving.
Thanks for you insight.

Dear Sabrina,
we was very lucky and it was the customer (a luxury house rental business based on Venice, Italy)
that suggested us to buy the camera, and he already had the plan to scan his 53 homes.

So we did a contract with him for a convenient price,
and we've done 45 spaces in 2 months, we only miss 8 up to now.
This is the updated portfolio: https://www.veniceredhouse.com/3d/
