The Sunday Times: Essential Viewing: is it Necessary Before Buying a Home? DanSmigrod 4 1 monthbryanhscott (398): @DanSmigrod In short, yes, required - especially for buyers under 40, who need more of a reason to take their time to schedule a physical visit and spend their money on gas to do it. And, for out of state, or out of country buyers, it's a must have for sure. The specifications cited make sense, except for the one about folks willing to pay 10% more. The only way that happens is because of some competitive situation, or that the listing agent...

"Virtual Site Tours: Should They Be Your Next Marketing Move?" bryanhscott 7 4 monthsbryanhscott (398): @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. Part of the problem is that a 3D tour shows a lot, but won't always capture items that should be documented on the...

Research: The Matterport 3D Tour likely pays for itself! DanSmigrod 5 5 monthsbryanhscott (398): @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...

Trend: Lower Home Ownership Rates in the last 15 years: 70 to 64% US HH DanSmigrod 2 6 monthsHome3D (1591): Falling rates of home ownership?

The American middle class was strongest in the 1950’s under former army general President Eisenhower, a Republican, when progressive taxation topped out at 91%. Don’t believe it?

NAR: "44% of buyers start their home search online" DanSmigrod 2 10 monthsHome3D (1591): The stat I refer to - and this is over two years old - was the NAR statement that 51% of buyers (think it was 2016) "found the home they ended up purchasing on the internet". Bottom line, Buyers search online, mostly without the help of an agent, then call on an agent to help make the purchase. Curb appeal is now a minor issue - Online appeal is everything as it is the "First Impression" buyers have of every listing. So...
Question of the Day: Do you target For Sale By Owner (FSBO)? DanSmigrod 3 10 monthsizoneguy (343): I knew this seller...he was asking me about taking photos of his FSBO and I said - I have even more I can do for you. This seller has only sold his homes on his own - never used a realtor. Of course this property is not a typically property.
Redfin: 20% of Homebuyers Make Offers on Houses They Never Visit DanSmigrod 16 11 monthsWingman (715): Thank you Dan for publishing that statement in the first place. It looks like with a very little awareness for their product in my area publishing statements like this in a Facebook post boosting format is the only way to tell potential customers why this product is so good. Short google and bing ad formats cannot do it.

Matterport Statistics Pgrim 6 1 yearHome3D (1591): All of Matterport’s muscle should be engaged to get to make a big deal of listings which include MP. The site’s tiny “3D View” button should instead be huge to incentivize agents to include MP. Realtor should publicly boast that they are the largest aggregator festuring MP 3D. Look at Zillow: listings with Video have a big clear “VIDEO” button begging to be clicked, and I suspect Zillow will do as much or more with their...
Is the interest in Matterport growing, flat or declining? DanSmigrod 8 1 yearHome3D (1591): 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”...

Is a 22% increase in views week to week good, bad or ?? sbl110 6 1 yearjblythe (58): @sbl110 No problem, and happy to help! All we can ever do in a customer service oriented space is supply the client with the information they ask for. I agree every opportunity, good or bad, is a learning opportunity and what we do with that is up to us. I think there really is some value in the information you are able to provide, figuring out the "how" is always the tough part :) jason
NAR Study: Value of Virtual Tours and Floor Plans among Home Buyers DanSmigrod 7 2 yearsHome3D (1591): For MSPs who are not professional photographers (not skilled in shooting RAW, Lightroom, Photoshop...) stills pulled from MP are a great option. I'd also propose that for very low budget properties, shooting MP and delivering its stills for MLS use are an upgrade over just mid-quality stills, without MP. That being said, MP stills do not compare with a skilled photographer's work with a DLSR. Maybe someday but not today. But I'm encouraging...
Matterport for Zillow, Hot Pads, Trulia? MarkCantu 4 2 yearsMarkCantu (103): @VTLV @Home3D Thank you for the clarification. I started doing virtual tours very early with Realtour Vision. I see that I can use their platform, add Matterport to their tour software, and get incredible distribution to real estate sites. Thanks for letting me know because I see this as a competitive advantage to other MSP in my area.
Matterport Statistics from Workshop Briski2208 9 2 yearsDanSmigrod (20039): @Queen_City_3D Yes. Matterport needs to solve this for its Matterport Service Providers: especially since it has not offered a Cloud based backup and restore. At the very least, Matterport should not charge for models that are set to private. Dan
How are you using Facebook Live? DanSmigrod 1 2 yearsDanSmigrod (20039): Screen Grab: Slide courtesy of Digital Summit Atlanta (22 May 2018) Hi All, If you are NOT using Facebook Live for marketing, try it for person use first. Then, think about how you could help a Client (and make some $$$). Best, Dan P.S From #DSATL | Digital Summit Atlanta (22 May 2018)
Storytelling – Not Statistics – Gets Biz DanSmigrod 2 2 yearsBriski2208 (147): Good coincidence: I've been asked to give a presentation to 12 valuers from a local estate agents. I have conducted a couple of tours already which is why they would like to expand on this. I thought I would do a presentation using keynote on the ipad then exporting to power point just in case. Has anyone give a presentation on 3D showcase tours? What will be the other benefits apart from the obvious? Any key pointers will be appreciated.

Facebook Ad clicks Matterport Gerhard 7 2 yearsGlennTremain (1815): @3dvirtualview yes and no. Using a teaser is short enough. Its what you say that can get higher conversion. Videos should be short and sweet with a hook. Long videos, I agree, don't work. FB business ads I have found the client not being able to use as well and end up coming back to you to explain. play with it to see what works best for you and the type of clients you have.
Matterport Real Estate Agent Marketing Video DanSmigrod 6 2 yearscoulee360 (97): Only problems about the video that draw me away as a Photographer MSP is that they mention "the entire scanning process should take your agent..." what about having at least another video saying "...your Photographer.." I wouldnt mind certain parts near the end where it talks about "your agent" but as a Photographer MSP this video does nothing to help me. It looks as though it's meant to help the Agent who is an...

Marketing Model Statistics Queen_City_3D 9 3 yearsAcomeau15 (52): @DanSmigrod Our first scan was April 2015! We make sure we help maximize our clients exposure through a few different means, for one having a hand in placement and positioning of the tour is key. That along with digital marketing suggestions / social posting always helps drive a little extra traffic.
2.5%+ of all homes sold in the US had a MP DanSmigrod 10 3 yearsViewing (583): From a marketing/legal pov, Matterport made the 2.5% statement, not us. Use that stat to your advantage I say. For us it makes no difference if the figures are a lovely caramel fudged flavor. Up that figure to 20% next year please.
