The latest filing for the Matterport class action suit Axis360Media 5 10 daysAxis360Media (120): One thing I will say about this case. We won the lottery with the judge. This judge is very tech savvy. Recently for an antitrust case with google and oracle he actually taught himself to program JavaScript. I am excited to think in the very near future a judge will have his hands on a Matterport to decide if their camera is as easy to use as they claim.

I would not make a big bet on this business model. 3D mobile scanning will be more about objects and people and not about room scanning. Matterport should better focus on a Pro3 camera with one-click 360 capturing and a flash lidar.

Chart: How much real estate agents make per USA State DanSmigrod 2 3 monthsjericreson (84): It's always a little misleading to look at agent income averages - There's the 80/20 rule that 80% of the money is made by 20% of the agents. In reality, you will be working with agents in the top tier who can easily be making $300,000+ in any given year, in gross commissions. Some significantly more than that. On the other hand, you have a gigantic percentage of "working" agents who are lucky if they sell one home every few...

CoreLogic's HomeVisit Portal Includes Matterport for 850,000 RE Agents DanSmigrod 5 3 monthsbriangreul (464): It's possible they could be using DroneBase, but I have not heard any chatter there. Regardless of who they are using there are still all sorts of airspace complications in major markets. It's possible to fly near most of them, but it takes a few days to get authorization and it takes time. Both of which are the enemy of high volume low paying work. That still leaves out the DSLR space.

Few clients require all that control, unless they are very experienced. Most leave it to the agent to make sure they don't miss anything important. The more experienced just use/need less time to decide on next steps, before proceeding to the next one on their list. Whether in person, or using a 3D tour, I offer the driver's seat...

Global Real Estate Brands Adopt Matterport Capture Services DanSmigrod 2 4 monthsbriangreul (464): Too bad Matterport won't let anyone sign up to be a Service Provider or Capture Technician. Both are currently gated. If you ask all you get is a "we're really busy right now and not taking any new partners." The vetted part is nonsense. They assign it to the partners in the program who then find people to run the jobs for them. I will agree they are doing lots of volume... but it's very poorly scoped and expectation management is...

6% of buyers find home they purchase via open houses/yard signs combined DanSmigrod 3 4 monthsWingman (1461): It is interesting and I would never thought it could happen that way. So instead of looking for available houses online they just drive around looking for signs "For Sale". There is no point to do it in my area and I believe anywhere across Australia.

I just looked at the stats on one of my MLS's and the average days on Market last month was 48 days (lowest in 5 years), a year ago it was 63 days which was the 2nd lowest in the last 5 years.
Cushman & Wakefield and Matterport Enter Into Global Agreement DanSmigrod 5 4 monthstoddwaddington (278): I completely agree, @GETMYVR. I think it's a numbers game. There are many Matterport providers who got in very early and have national cred. They are busy all the time. Just keep plugging along. It's an untapped market and I have to believe they will come around. For a few hundred buck investment (or whatever the going rate) they can replace those AWFUL photos they use to sell . This one is actually decent. A property near me, they got a...

Inman: "3D tours are hard to navigate? (Not in my experience)" DanSmigrod 3 5 monthsWingman (1461): I am sure people should have a choice to inspect with an agent or without. I believe most people prefer to do it alone and only ask questions from an agent if they want to. I would personally leave an inspection if I am followed by an agent talking all the time. And I believe a lot of buyers will do the same. Agents in Australia are well aware of that and before they would let all buyers to go through a property by themselves never bothering...

Yes, everyone knows Google Street View and has seen a few bits here and there, but it's the average homeowner that counts.

Creating a 3D Model with a SmartPhone (without additional hardware) DanSmigrod 7 1 yearGarySnyder (1822): I see this being a major boom for GSV captures. Now people can use their smartphones to shoot a VT via MP . They would pay MP to process the VT and upload it to GSV as a one time cost. MP would do all the heavy lifting of producing the VT so just about anyone could produce a GSV VT. I bet there will be loads of examples on YouTube in the next couple of months on how to do this process.

"Virtual Site Tours: Should They Be Your Next Marketing Move?" bryanhscott 7 1 yearbryanhscott (806): @johnwheatley So far as retail price, I think you have to get paid for your time. Speaking specifically about pre-move-in rentals (short or long-term), owners or property managers, if you normally charge $.10psf for a 3D tour, then I suppose it's worth that minus any of the usual add-ons you provide for a listing agent or seller.
