Hi All,

A new Member of the Forum asks if he should buy a Matterport Camera to scan 15 vacation Villas on an Island (and for listings).

Will it help the marketing of the vacation villas? real-life examples/experience?

Should I write back that I will do some of the villas on half cash / half trade and train the agent how to scan: especially the view? 😎

Hi Dan,

My name is [redacted]. I am a Realtor with [brokerage] in [redacted] islands. Besides selling and listing real estate I also manage 15 vacation villas on island. I have been keeping an eye on MP for well over a year now. I would love to hear from any other forum members who use MP for vacation rentals. I think the value is there, especially with the recent price reduction.

Thanks for you work on the forum, it is obviously a labor of love for you!

Warm regards,

[redacted]

I'll go one better.

Assuming it's a nice tropical destination, if he provides all travel and accommodation for 2 for 2 weeks, we'd consider doing it at no cost Especially if it's all-inclusive with food and drinks...

I really need a vacation...

@Queen_City_3D Totally feel you there... I have a similar deal in the works Not 15 villas though 5 in Branson. I'm consulting and helping them decide if they want to invest in the camera or have me out (and a caravan of children and my wife)

I would consider a similar deal to Queen City if I happen to be closer to his islands.

The tours will definitely help market the villas. Vacasa has been using them with great results: https://matterport.com/case-study/vacasa-case-study/ - "Properties featuring Matterport 3D tours yielded 15% increase in online engagement and 14% higher occupancy; supporting 50% inventory growth since adoption".

The 5 star resort I did work for were so happy with the product they gave me a 1-night accommodation for 4 (2 rooms), breakfast and dinner at their top restaurant. It was amazing, the family loved it.

Hi All,

Which 3rd party solutions would you include in your quote to win this vacation villas business?

I would use at least these three.

✓ use a CartoBlue interactive map to help the agent visually show all their vacation villa rentals:
✓ include the Vacation.Vision listing platform
WP3D Models to create single property websites for each rental

@DanSmigrod How about creating a page where resorts can request Matterport Tours in exchange for a vacation? 👍
