Matterport versus Blue-Sketch 2D Floor Plans4101

Make More Money By Offering 2D Schematic Floor Plans

Whether you are a real estate agent or a Matterport Service Provider or both, you can make more money by offering 2D schematic floor plans.

For real estate agents, including floor plans in your listing presentation is another way to differentiate your listing presentation to win more and bigger listings more often. For Matterport Service Providers, you can help your clients win more and bigger listings more often by bundling or offering 2D floor plans as an optional extra.

A major real estate company* surveyed 10,000 people and discovered:

✓ "One third of home buyers are less likely to enquire about a property without a floor plan"
✓ "A floorplan is more important than the main image or the summary description"
✓ "Home-hunters are less likely to arrange a viewing if there is no floorplan, 1 in 10 buyers said that they would never arrange view a property if they had not seen a floor plan first"
✓ "A professional floorplan increases the click through rate by 52%"

Sources: *Rightmove Source 1 and Rightmove Source 2

EVERY Member of the We Get Around Network should offer 2D schematic floor plans.

Schematic floor plans are easy, fast and affordable as a result of the Matterport Camera capturing the scanning data. If you are re-selling floor plans, it’s likely that you could charge more than three times your cost. Depending on your market and the size of the listing, you may be able to charge $99, $149, $199, $249 or more for floor plans. High perceived value: your cost is low. While you may be competing with a low-cost Matterport provider, you may not be competing with them for value-added services such as 2D schematic floor plans. Make your money on the fries and soft-drink.

For the majority of the We Get Around Network Forum Community, there are two options:

✓ Order from Matterport
✓ Order from Blue-Sketch

To get started with floor plans, I encourage you to use the same Matterport Space to place an order for 2D floor plans with Matterport and Blue-Sketch. Then, decide which solution is right for you.

To help you compare Matterport schematic floor plans with Blue-Sketch schematic floor plans, I placed the same schematic floor plans order with both companies at the same time.

Here are the Top 10 Reasons to Choose Blue-Sketch

1. Square Feet for Invoicing: get total square footage – or square meters – so you can invoice your client (Matterport does not offer total square footage or square meters).
2. No logo, your logo or your client’s logo. (Matterport only offers floor plans that include the Matterport logo).
3. Disclaimer of your choice. (unlike Matterport)
4. Room measurements in your choice: feet and square feet – or meters and square meters
5. Various options for use of color (such as your brand) – Matterport just offers black and white
6. Room labels in your choice of languages (Matterport only offers English)
7. Blue-Sketch guarantees one-business day turnaround: including edits. Matterport promises floor plans within two business days and edits may take longer.
8. Responsive Support – Blue-Sketch Founder and Entrepreneur Petra Soderling cares and is accessible and responsive (email, voice, Skype) Many We Get Around Network Forum Members sing her praise.
9. Name the Rooms (For example, Sun Room instead of Living Room; Carport instead of Garage)
10. Blue-Sketch cares about quality (read more)

Great write up if you want Blue Sketch to create you a floor plan do they have to have access to your workshop in MP.

Also my website is being created as we speak would Blue Sketch forward templates so to advertise the floor plans.

You mentioned one differentiating feature of blue sketch being that you can customize room labels. In Matterport Workshop, you can custom label rooms and the schematic floorplan team use your custom labels.

Otherwise, yes, blue sketch is a wonderful white glove alternative!
