|The Laconia Daily Sun (8 January 2021) Roche Realty Group reports sales of $146.5 million for 2020
"For example, we invested in Matterport technology way before the pandemic hit, which allowed us to showcase our listings with an interactive 3D tour that users can navigate through the rooms of the home in high definition," [says New Hampshire-based Roche Realty Group President Frank Roche.] "With so many of our clients operating out of their homes, this state-of-the-art technology was a game-changer for us. We made a number of sales with the consumer using the Matterport tour and not even viewing the property, especially with our out-of-state buyers," reports The Laconia Daily Sun.
Have your real estate agent clients sold properties without an in-person visit as a result of a Matterport tour?
Happy New Year,

|Twice - once there was a bidding war between an investor in China and a person relocating from the bay area. The second time it was a second home and the buyer never saw the home until after closing. Every broker should have a Matterport as part of their advertising.|

|Thanks to Matterport, I purchased my small condo in Italy, while I was in the States, without even seeing it. I knew where the building was located and I knew the area, but I couldn't visit the unit in person. The photos weren't enough to understand the layout and the floor plan was too generic. But with the tour, there was no corner of the house that I couldn't explore. It was like being there.|

|This project I recently created in Malibu garnered, within three days, TWO cash offers from out-of-town buyers who had only seen the photos, video and Matterport. My high-end clients often order all three media assets, though some skip the video component.
Needless to say, my client was thrilled. This is what turns occasional users of virtual tours into regular users.
On the webpage, video is in top window, then stills, then Matterport. As the Forum's "WP3D Models" designation under "3D Tour" only shows the top window of a site built with WP3D, I will also include the direct link to the property page.
