Hi All,

Zillow is testing the Zillow 3D Home tour service in one market: Phoenix (as of 5 February 2018)

"3D Home is a free mobile app that allows homeowners and real estate professionals to capture 3D tours of homes with their iPhones. These 3D Homes are published to a listing’s home details page on Zillow, letting potential buyers virtually walk through the home’s layout and giving agents and sellers a powerful tool to market their listings online," according to the Zillow 3D Home FAQs.

Zillow is likely to roll-out Zillow 3D Home Tour nationwide in 2018.

One thing I know is that iPhones have destroyed certain segments of the photography business. Ask any millennial if they see much need for a professional photographer most will say no, I have an iPhone. So I have to wonder what iPhone will do to Matterport business?

@rzphotoman

Democratization of 3D photography will create more opportunities for Pros.

Be sure to tune-in to decide if Zillow 3D Home is a threat or an opportunity.

Dan

So, when the home is sold, does Zillow then keep the 3D home online indefinitely? Yes. See 54:50.

What if I want to embed a Zillow 3D home on my site and use it with a 3rd party service? Fair game?

I'm being silly, but I'm not.

This is an example of a company creating an open database of '3D Homes' that will have a life beyond the sale of the property that will contain the furnishings of the previous owner (much like the MLS images that are on Zillow indefinitely -- unless removed by request of the home owner, right?)

I think that this is an interesting product by which we can compare other business models to.

Big difference is that the unpublish button sounds like it does truly delete the tour...

Time to go buy an iPhone (was wanting a Pixel, but that seems to not be an option with this)... as this seems like a great way to increase my DSLR photography business and perhaps the same client wants a Matterport tour ALSO! Who knows?

You know, this first version looks basic, but the inhome tracking of where one is is very iGuide like ...

There's something that you might not know about Allison Light from this video -- she has an impressive resume.

Watch the video below and imagine what Allison is bringing to the table from her background and what this means for future iterations of Zillow's concept.



Jump to 7:20... sound familiar?

I was intrigued enough about the Zillow 3d concept that I signed up and purchased the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 gimbal to help create the videos. Seems a no brainer, but so did being MSP 2 months ago when I bought the Pro 2.

You we're focused on my every word? Nearly half of all real estate agents would prefer to engage Pro, according to Zillow. I have asked them for more info about the study. Additionally, there's some secret sauce magic in how best to (successfully and easily) shoot a Zillow 3D Home. Watch for it in the video.

Think of it as just another tool in your tool box. It might be in addition to Matterport ("Would you like fries with that?" to in lieu of Matterport on a low price house where the budget is not there for charging for Matterport. You can embed a Zillow 3D Home else where with iFrame. Presently, Zillow is testing 3D Home in Phoenix. Anyone in the US can test now.

I find this incredibly intriguing.

Matterport may have the "wow" factor with the 3D dollhouse view, but otherwise this comes very close to a Matterport tour, at essentially no cost.

Zillow 3D could be a powerful differentiator to win clients over with. Tack this on to a 2D photoshoot for free, or charge $20-40 at 100% profit.

@CharetteImaging This is exactly what I'm thinking I'm wanting to bundle this solution with my other services. Sounds like it's easy enough to do and it would be my hope to always sell a Zillow Tour with DSLR photos AND Matterport Tours and Floorplans --

I'm giving this new product two thumbs up and am VERY excited that Dan established a relationship with them.

I've bumped Zillow's product up to the 2nd most powerful way to use panoramas with Real Estate. It's not (now) as advanced as some of the other platforms -- but the ease of creation, its strategic placement and the end product achieves a perfect value proposition.
