Zillow:1 11% of Americans say they have already moved in the past year DanSmigrod 2 5 daysMetroplex360 (9332): Well, I will say this much. I moved during the pandemic and sold the house that I had lived in for a long time. I found that high quality images and a Zillow 3D home tour were really useful in selling my home. At that time, Zillow 3D home did not provide floor plans and a matterport was also created. I believe that the floor plan was also helpful in attracting buyers.

Zillow Starts Making Cash Offers For the Zestimate (Impact on MSPs?) DanSmigrod 4 2 monthsDanSmigrod (25183): @bryanhscott Thank you for your analysis. How this plays out for real estate agents - and Matterport Service Providers - will be interesting. I wonder if we will see a deal announced in 2021 between Zillow and Matterport where Zillow licenses data "owned" by Matterport to help fine-tune Zillow Zestimate. That sounds like a lot of potential money for Matterport (and zero for those that pay for the privilege of creating the...

Given the pandemic, why has Zillow not jumped on this opportunity? DanSmigrod 10 6 monthslilnitsch (2836): @DanSmigrod Matterport is about to head off to middle school and still is a startup looking for dollars. While I am vested in Matterport gear and genuinely like their tours they need to get their stuff together or they will be a what ever happened to. Someone will buy their technology only to part it out.
I am thinking about starting a virtual tour/Real Estate Photograph business Malek Jump to first page32Jump to last page 7 monthsVTLV (2369): Do yourself a favor and learn the fundamentals of photos editing. This is a trade, not a get rich quick scheme breaking into a new industry. So many real estate agents get a license and think they'll make large sums of cash. 80% of them make less than $20,000 a year. Agents get in, sell a friend or family members home, starve and drop out to a part time job and rarely get back in. Happening a ton with 360 photographers as well. Ebay always has...

Unless you uploaded more than 10 a month. One month you're told a video will help your tour tour rank first on Zillow Search results. Then they fade off and not longer rank high making you a liar.

DanSmigrod 3 8 monthsjen_ishayoga (33): I haven't had the chance to do my research yet but I'm intrigued by Asteroom and what it potentially offers to both the photographer and the RE marketplace. I briefly dabbled with Cloudpano's lifetime membership which includes free virtual tour hosting for life. I also liked that it has an in-tour scheduler that allows the agent and the buyer to do a remote walk through together. I will probably go back to CP in the future for other types of...

Zillow Considering Offering a Tool for Creating Digital Floor Plans DanSmigrod 2 8 monthsChemistrydoc (1494): @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...
How to set the starting point of a Zillow 3D Home Tour? DanSmigrod 5 8 monthsChemistrydoc (1494): So, on the Zillow listing itself, the first tour that you encounter (right under the main property image) will have a seemingly random start position that cannot be edited and is not related to shoot order, or any other discernible factor. The SECOND instance of the tour, which appears just below the photos, will have the start condition as you select it with the info above. Also, if you use a link to access the tour, it as well will start as...

Publish Matterport to Partners ( is working. is not) Fmodjr1913 10 11 monthsFmodjr1913 (37): Yea, from what I understand, the ONLY way to get a Matterport tour on Zillow is by listing it on an MLS that integrates automatically. Otherwise, you can't include a link and there is no designated spot or way to include directly. I'm assuming this is Zillow's way of making sure thier much less impressive Zillow Virtual Tours get attention. I sure wish there was a way to get some answers or support. There's nothing on the FAQ's on any of the...

Inman: Interest in 3D tours explodes on Zillow, especially for rentals DanSmigrod 5 11 monthsHome3D (2930): Dan's post from Inman is where this is going. It's also the only reason virtual tours have grown so slowly over the past 5 years - the PUBLIC (meaning buyers) was not expecting or demanding them. Now the cat is out of the bag as buyers realize what they could have had all along. And it's buyers who run this business, even though listing agents would like to feel they do. Remember, the "asking price" that a seller and agent agree on...

Zillow 3D Home Tour not publishing certain listings botticelli 16 1 yearChemistrydoc (1494): If you think the above are bad, consider a multiunit condo.

To top it off, the part of the app that associates address with the tour has not been working for me the last several days. And, getting anyone at tech support to respond is like "Waiting for Godot".

Video: Why Shoot Zillow 3D Home (360º Tours) Today-Today-Today DanSmigrod 6 2 yearsHome3D (2930): No comparison there. MP and GeoCV are comparable (without GeoCV’s astounding Outdoor view) so I price these similar. Zillow 3D home and NodalView (which looks better and can include aerial panos) are both fast to shoot, so I use them as an argument that all listings should now include a “walkthrough” experience. If a client asks me for just HDR stills, I include Zillow or NodalView without charge. I’m committed to changing the agent...
Zillow Video Walkthrough DanSmigrod 3 2 yearsJonJ (1745): Zillow stopped supporting android phones, so now I just use a goPro on a gimbal to shoot these. I stitch the clips together using Animoto, add some music upload to Zillow and I'm done. These video links can be shared and used to post to the MLS and social media. I provide the link for a small fee. JonJ

How might you use the Osmo Pocket - with DJI Mimo app - to make money? DanSmigrod 2 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9332): Too underpowered for professional video. Too expensive for a present for my kids for Christmas. Too intriguing to stop thinking about ... Would be a very good tool for Zillow videos ... there's something extremely alluring about not having to stick your phone on an Osmo 2 ... any idea about how wide this thing shoots? With an iPhone, Osmo 2 and a Moment Lens attachment, you can have a pretty adept stable cam that is perfect for low budget...

It is a great question. @TrustedPhotoDC @Home3D Our entire space has a challenge about naming conventions where virtual tour can mean slide show and virtual reality can mean a 3D Tour. It IS totally confusing. Going forward, I will refer to Zillow 3D Tour as Zillow Tour and in the first reference mention that Zillow calls it Zillow 3D...

Zillow 3D Home Coming to Orlando and Houston Soon DanSmigrod 3 3 yearsVTLV (2369): I wish it was called Zillow 360 to help distinguish 360 from 3D dollhouse and VR 3D. I gotta say leveling is the biggest hurdle with this product. My next issue is the demands of my Zillow rep expecting hallways and bathrooms to be included when my agreement with the agent is about 10. Kinks will work out eventually.
Help please with using the DJI OSMO 2 with the Zillow App Navyman 6 3 yearsjimfelder (4): I have the same set up as you Navyman. I’ve used it several times. You can use the joystick to pan left right up-and-down but you can’t sync the app. You can’t zoom or start and stop video. You have to use your finger on the phone. Also purchased a counterweight that was made for the Osmo mobile two and added some small fishing weights inside the counterweight. Gets hollow.

HouseLens and Zillow reinspimg 3 3 yearsTrustedPhotoDC (1108): House Lens has a tendency to boast of offering features that anyone with a MP camera or as a Zillow Photographer can offer. They word their marketing to make it seem like they offer services exclusively. Their marketing director also seems to often ask basic questions online that any professional in this field should not have to ask.

Tours on Zillow have the height shortened 3SixtyNow 8 3 yearsMediaTrends360 (19): I’m sorry you’re experiencing trouble with your shoot but it looks great on my iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Pro2 10.5 inch. Great Job on the walkthrough. Btw, are you trying to view it in Landscape mode? If so it will shorten the height automatically. However you can sill pan up and down, and look in all directions to view the entire space.
Zillow creates new ‘3D Home’ iphone app iTours360VR 11 4 yearsfullpreview (163): @EileenB - what you have said is very true and practical, for Zillow. And, you're right - because of the simplicity of performing the video and its inherent "Zillow" value, it should be done... if for nothing else, it's a value proposition. For all the MSPs, please ALWAYS mentioned one, if not the best, USP for a Matterport Tour - dedicated property detail pages! These are the best way for an agent to market the property outside of...
Zillow testing 3-D tour capture LewisBishop 8 4 yearsMetroplex360 (9332): @LewisBishop ... or the end user must see it. Zillow is a highly visible site and a product that is much more visible may have more value than a Matterport Tour to some. That's an area to have a bit of concern. I think we all agree that Zillow's app is nothing more than a DIY Panorama + HotSpot maker. I want someone to pay me $200M in R&D.

Zillow Walkthrough Videos AerialMG 7 5 yearsAerialMG (70): Yes I understand that you have to use the app, as why I'm writing this complaint. I like what you did with video my only suggestion is to use a tripod to stabilize your phone while recording screen. I will probably help the realtors in this process, by doing a Matterport walk trough and having them set up to record it

What Everyone Should Know About Zillow Video Dreammachine 6 5 yearsDaveFahrny (263): I see listings dropped out of Zillow on a regular basis. The agents listing along with the virtual tour link I there then the next day it is gone. Then the listing appears again but the virtual tour link is not in place. This does not seem to happen on Trulia. I have been contacting Zillow to try to get someone to monitor the situation. I have not had any luck with it yet. Is this happening to other agents?
Matterport Launches Schematic Floor Plans Maria 15 5 yearsProperty3dNZ (616): @Noel WOW! That's ridiculous! I have worked closely with MP for at least 8 months before metric measurements were released - the ridiculous thing is that the very first release of MP had metric measurements! I have actually been told during a skype meeting by Katharine Nevins (who works in the Product Management team) that it automatically creates in metric and they have to convert it to imperial! So frustrating!
