3DApartment Standardizes on Matterport to Fuel Nationwide Expansion

First VR-only apartment search platform adopts Matterport Capture Services for the enterprise to digitize properties at scale, and announces plans to introduce personalized virtual staging for customers

SUNNYVALE, Calif. and BROOKLYN, N.Y., April 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Matterport Inc., the leading spatial data company driving the digital transformation of the built world, today announced that 3DApartment, the first search platform where all apartments can be virtually walked through in 3D, has standardized on Matterport to create dimensionally-accurate digital twins and immersive 3D tours for more than 15,000 property listings across New York, Boston and Miami. Now, renters and buyers can apartment hunt virtually anytime from any device. In addition, 3DApartment is using Matterport's SDK to develop an industry-first virtual staging option so that customers can personalize their spaces with furnishings and buy them if they choose.

The partnership enables 3DApartment to fuel its expansion throughout North America and scale to service thousands of customers per month. Powered by Matterport Capture Services™ for the enterprise, an online services platform announced earlier this week, 3DApartment has access to Matterport's automated 3D capture solution that schedules technicians nationwide to digitize thousands of apartments in a convenient, fast and cost-effective way. Matterport Capture Technicians™ are uniquely trained to digitize properties with the highest degree of precision, quality, and speed and can be scheduled at a moment's notice across North America and around the world.

When a Matterport digital twin is seamlessly added to 3DApartment.com, it becomes the actual listing for every property. Landlords, developers, and owners can now showcase their properties 24/7 using Matterport's industry-leading 3D tours. Any prospective renter or buyer can walk through the property virtually in stunning 4K HDR imagery. Visitors can even take accurate digital measurements of rooms, walls, ceiling heights or anything within the space. Prospects can come as often as they like, share the property with friends and family, and even stage furniture, artwork, and other belongings in the digital twin to see how everything looks and fits.

Matterport's all-in-one 3D platform paired with 3DApartment's immersive listing experience creates one of the most engaging property portals on the Internet. Matterport increases engagement by more than 300%, drives occupancy by more than 14% and according to research commissioned last year, listings with 3D tours sold for up to nine percent higher and closed up to 31% faster; 90% of them included a Matterport 3D tour.

3DApartment has leveraged Matterport's SDK to develop a unique virtual staging capability that gives tenants the opportunity to customize their spaces with furniture options. Because Matterport digital twins are dimensionally accurate, visitors can feel confident knowing that selections will fit within each space prior to purchase. With the addition of virtual staging capabilities leveraging Matterport's spatial data, 3DApartment enables viewers to choose, visualize, and even buy personalized pieces of furniture from within each experience.

"Partnering with Matterport gives us a competitive edge. Many of our prospective tenants prefer visiting and revisiting the digital twins instead of attending in-person viewings which unlocks virtual-first leasing experiences for landlords, property management companies and real estate developers," said Gregory Ardbelava, Founder and CEO of 3DApartment. "Providing Matterport 3D tours is proven to engage buyers and renters so adding virtual staging options will deliver a truly end-to-end home search experience. This will become essential as digitally native, mobile-first Gen Z consumers increasingly wield greater purchasing power. Our solution shows how spatial data, real physical assets and AR/VR can co-exist in today's world."

"Through our partnership, 3DApartment is forging a new path for apartment renting and buying with an innovative industry-first offering. Driven by their focus to deliver a superior customer experience, they are leveraging the full potential of Matterport digital twins and 3D tours to not only showcase properties in a completely new way but breathe new life into the home furnishings industry as well," said TJ Paterick, Vice President, Americas at Matterport. "We are tremendously excited about supporting 3DApartment's ability to enter hundreds of new markets in a convenient, fast and cost-effective way with Matterport Capture Services, and enabling unique, shoppable virtual staging capabilities through our SDK."
