DOJ to NAR: "cease misrepresenting that buyer broker services are free" DanSmigrod 19 2 monthsDanSmigrod (24331): Inman (20 November 2020) The DOJ-NAR lawsuit is good for us all - These changes don't spell the end of anything. They provide consumers with information. Transparency, protecting your clients' interests and codifying best practices are all good things -- Save $20 with WGAN Affiliate Link for Inman
Is a new Matterport camera coming in 2021? dave3d 12 2 monthsbriangreul (593): @DanSmigrod I think the camera is a price point product, not a margin product. I think they picked a price that people can stomach. The challenge is all the negative noise being created by the broker out of California coupled with the stark reality about not letting anyone new into MSS/MSP. The argument about not enough volume only holds a little water as most of the established MSP's are subbing the work out to photographers. In effect...
Example MSP websites with Matterport tours? BIGNAIZ 2 2 monthsdave3d (137): Unless I misunderstand your question that should be pretty simple: Maybe type Matterport and any major city name...go to the top 3 companies listed that are MSPs...and look at their tours?
Video: Why this MSP charges $135 for 25 photos & posts this on his website DanSmigrod 3 2 monthsExpertise (625): Ok, you solved one problem and created another one. This is an honest question for Eli- When Chucky Cheapskate (under)orders 25 photos for a 5000SF, million dollar waterfront pool home and then wants to know why you didn't shoot 2 angles of the master bedroom... how do you handle it?

Video: Why offer Photos Before You Offer Virtual Tours DanSmigrod 2 2 monthsChemistrydoc (1464): @DanSmigrod I can only affirm this strategy. I languished for about 6 months stubbornly doing only Matterport. Once I started offering high-quality photos, things took off like a rocket. I don't do Matterport on every listing, but do on most. Unlike Mr. Jones, I do bundle photos and Matterport (at discounted prices). Keith

Matterport & Ricoh Theta Z1 work well together? jpierce360 11 3 monthsHome3D (2690): @jpierce360 - no, completely different, Z1 vs a Pro 1/2. The Pro cameras us IR to actually gather precise measurements on every physical surface within its range of about 10-12 feet. The Z1 captures no depth data at all. Cortex takes the Z1's 360° photo and uses AI to 'guess' (nothing more than guess) where in space the objects it photographs actually are. It then creates 3D mesh based on these guesses. If you're shooting an unfurnished...

Matterport Blog: You Don’t Have to Wait for iPhone 12 to Capture in 3D. DanSmigrod 6 3 monthsMeshImages (1137): I see Matterport getting stuck in the middle.

Matterport Space of a hotel: 1,000+ Scans of 100,000 SQ FT HarlanHambright 5 3 monthsExpertise (625): Very cool, Harlen. Two questions for you: 1- how many days and man hours would you estimate this took? 2- how did you get this job? Did you pitch them? Did they call you? Are you acquainted with mgmt? And a question for MSPs who have done these types of spaces: Is this something that you think owners/management are now ready to consider?
MSP? What would you differently if you were launching your MSP biz today? DanSmigrod 3 3 monthsron0987 (1676): After debating for several weeks I would have done like @3SixtyNow said, which is not believe the hype and gone with Iguide.

Nice virtual platform for Scanning Exterior Locations with a Theta Z1? SpencerLasky 9 3 monthsHome3D (2690): Each MP model should launch to display in a 'lightbox' style overlay window, dimming the background tour. Near the upper right should appear an "X" to close the MP model back to the underlying 360° tour. Note: These have been designed principally for use on desktop and tablets used in Landscape mode. Some of them work on phones in portrait mode, but this use has not been tweaked fully.
