Zillow Considering Offering a Tool for Creating Digital Floor Plans DanSmigrod 2 2 monthsChemistrydoc (1365): @DanSmigrod My first impulsive reaction is to say to them that they can keep the floor plans if they are charging folks to generate them. But, likely they have costs involved that are way above what they are for simply uploading photo media (including 3D). I guess my answer to their marketing questions would be 1) hire someone to do market research instead of asking Zillow photographers to provide this; 2) the market will decide what cost...

7 emerging real estate trends in the new normal (affected Matterport Pros) DanSmigrod 2 3 monthsdave3d (34): I've spoken to some folks from the New York area who said there was a lot of movement out of the city going on. I imagine this might have some demographic tie as some groups (millennials?) won't give up city living when their morbidity rates aren't significant. A lot of other inner city factors at work right now too. I'd think there may be a financial impact felt unevenly across income groups with lower income folks hit hardest (fewer first...

[R&D] A comparison of GeoCV and Matterport 3D OBJ files Tosolini 8 1 yearConvrts (240): Home3D - we just used the OBJ from a HD GeoCV tour to create a model and it was much the same. Compared to creating the model from Matterport tours as he's done previously my mate (the one who's better at this stuff than me!) said he found it so much easier to work with. Thanks for the comparison Tossolini, really great!
Research: The Matterport 3D Tour likely pays for itself! DanSmigrod 5 1 yearbryanhscott (800): @Jwbuckl So long as the study specs do not lean towards a specific 3D/360 vendor, no issues with who funded it, though I would prefer a consortium of industry pioneers to collaborate on such a project (similar to the working groups that have developed specifications for technology like IEEE 802.3 & 802.11). As asserted in my last post, I do not believe that any knowledgeable buyer will overpay for a property solely due to the availability...

It might be better to look at homes that are not selling fast for 3-D tours.

May I get your help with this few-minute WGAN Forum Survey? DanSmigrod 19 2 yearsDanSmigrod (22940): @Kumar If you look at the search results of the Matterport website example, it is returning search results from August 20, 2016 and January 17, 2017. That does not look very helpful. We have been using Google for search because it returns WGAN Forum search results that are most helpful. Our current thinking is that Google does a better job doing search than we could do on our own. The trade off is that the results includes Google Ads. Any...

Is the interest in Matterport growing, flat or declining? DanSmigrod 8 2 yearsHome3D (2314): I concur with Fotoguy, even though i’m contradicting my own post from three months ago. Strong housing market = agents who see little need to invest in marketing. MP expansion is captive to the same forces as Cupix, Geo and all similar systems - Will the public demand it.(?) That’s the issue. The public now demands that listings have photos, so no agent dares to suggest listing a home without them. Any agent who proposed “no photos”...

All we can ever do in a customer service oriented space is supply the client with the information they ask for.

Everything listed has had Matterport and professional photos accepting an offer withing about a week. Although none of the out of state or country bids have one. The offers helped to drive a bidding war. The feature has also helped family members involved in the transaction like dad fronting the down payment or co-signing on the loan to get off his tail and make a move.
