WGAN-TV Matterport Strategic Alliance with RoOomy with RoOmy Head of Business Development Taylor Wilding

Hi All,

One of the ways that Matterport may make its competition irrelevant is offer 3rd party integrations on Steroids.

Soon, Matterport will launch 3D Virtual Staging powered by RoOomy (presently in private beta).

Imagine that you shoot Matterport of just built multi-family apartment community without furniture in the various apartment types. Now imagine that these same Matterport 3D Tours are virtually staged: not one photo virtual staged, not one 360º virtual staged, but the Matterport 3D Tour virtual staged.

When you look at a Matterport 3D Tour with this virtually staged experience by RoOomy, it feels like magic. It's that amazing.

In my WGAN-TV interview with RoOomy Head of Business Development Taylor Wilding (above) at Inman Connect New York 2019, Taylor talks about the Matterport strategic alliance with Matterport - first announced 18 December 2017 – and how Matterport Service Providers can make money with RoOomy.com.

For Matterport Service Providers, at least three ways to make money with Matterport 3D Tours virtually staged by RoOomy:

✓ Matterport 3D Tour scanning
✓ Add RoOomy Virtual Staging (make the spread between what you charge and the amount that you pay RoOomy
✓ RoOomy will offer a Reseller Program for Matterport Service Providers.

Best prospects, according to RoOomy are:

✓ multi-family (just built: various apartment or home types)
✓ single family home communities (just built: various home styles)
✓ developers
✓ property management companies

How to Make Money

✓ Showcase every floor plan with virtual staging
✓ Property Managers can show properties where tenants have not yet moved out
✓ Help Property Managers and Developers get more money sooner (pre-leasing)
✓ Evergreen spaces work best (renters do not remodel spaces)

"The collaboration between roOomy and Matterport is due to a growing demand by customers for virtual staging of 3D spaces across industries, in particular within multifamily. Property managers, for example, will be able to use virtual staging instead of physically staging model apartments, allowing renters to easily decide on flooring and furniture upgrades and customizations for multifamily units. Interior designers can more easily work with customers to design living spaces," according to the 18 December 2017 Matterport-RoOomy media release.

Your thoughts?

Best,

Dan

P.S. I will reach out to RoOomy to see if we can get some examples to share in this discussion ... I had a chance to view examples at ICNY19 and they are amazing.

These samples show an empty dollhouse view and then when you enter it is full of furniture.

Amazing technology and a product/service that I would benefit from...now are we talking March 2019 or Dec 2019 for opening this up to MSP's or is Matterport looking for new and inventive ways to block existing MSP's?

The small sample space in the demo above has been on Rooomy's site for a good while. If this is in private beta and supposedly approaching reality, haven't they got something more to show? I'm excited about this capability but would love to really believe.

@Home3D

Here are more examples from RoOomy (mashed up with Matterport) (above and three below within one link).

It's pretty remarkable stuff.

Best,

Dan

P.S. Note: When you (all) begin using this solution, I encourage you to include disclaimer wording such as: Virtual Staged. I am not a lawyer. I do not give legal advice. If it was me, I would not want to mislead anyone that the space viewed actually exists, as presented.

The result is great!
It is always good to know how many hours we need to obtain those results.

Matterport's Custom VR was great (my opinion), but it disappeared.

Hi All,

A representative of RoOomy replied to my P.S. with the following:

"Saw your comment on the thread with regards to disclaimers. While encourage, I can assure you that we are not altering any “real property”. Therefore, there is no concern about misrepresentation."

Hi All,

While exhibiting at a real estate event in Atlanta yesterday (Wednesday, 6 February 2019), I visited with a real estate agent that works for a home builder (300+ homes a year: mostly in the greater Atlanta area).

I shared a RoOomy virtual staging example (above) and he immediately could see how this could help his company sell homes faster (and save money on real furniture virtual staging).

While I typically do not show what I can not offer immediately (particularly without knowing pricing), I did want some insight. While the agent is not the decision maker, he is likely a cheerleader to help get me in the door to meet with those that can make a decision.

We're eager to be able to offer this Matterport-RoOomy mashup, when available.

Have you shared an example with a potential client? What's their reaction?

Best,

Dan

Hi All,

You MUST look at the Matterport-RoOomy examples above.

Your thoughts of how you might leverage this 3D virtual staging solution that leverages your Matterport scanning?

Best,

Dan

@DanSmigrod - I agree this is a dynamic and impressive add-on to MP. The small question is time to have RoOomy staging added to a scan. the BIG question is cost. Looking forward to the details.

But thanks for these Azure examples. Dan, can these examples might be downloaded into MP Showcase app to demo for clients offline? I'm usually in range of cellular data, but often not Wifi and this can turn a demo into mud-on-the-face. Thanks if you have any tips, or maybe an answer from RoOomy.

Yes - I shared this example with a huge Property consultant firm who has hundreds of properties across the US. I have been in contact with Rooomy but have not heard back how we can proceed. I am reluctant to share with Rooomy any details for obvious reasons. I am not sure how to proceed with this technology since Rooomy is not sharing details on cost, etc....

Rooomy is in a private beta mode. Does that mean they are partners with Matterport?

And I wonder how any individual Matterport shooter can Matter?

Will Matterport control this technology with Rooomy and shut out individual MSP’s? I am still waiting for a reply from Rooomy.

Only way this will be successful if we can do the staging ourselves through Rooomy. If they are going to charge that good luck with your model, will not succeed. Cheaper to just stage panoramas and add into the tour. Feels like they are going the route Archoligic took and proved themselves out of the market. Have so much work for them , but the pricing makes no sense at all. Also if they don’t allow you o place your own bespoke 3D furniture of fixtures it will just be useful for the rental market and maybe off plan show villas or apartments.

But lets see we have waited long enough for this. So lets see how they are going to structure this and look after the MP’s or the end user.

New! Sponsored roOomy Virtually Staged Matterport 3D Tours

Target and reach highly motivated audiences when you sponsor roOomy Virtually Staged Matterport 3D Tours with our Real Estate partners. Ask your roOomy sales representative how to capitalize on this opportunity, too!

So what does this mean ?

Looks good.

Key questions will be:

- price
- Timings
- interior design spec process
- change requests

Will watch with anticipation...

Hi All,

"Redfin employs a San Jose, Calif., company called RoOomy to virtually stage vacant listings – right down to the digital knicknacks..."

Source: The Wall Street Tour, Tuesday, 6 March 2019, page B1 | "Property Listings Get Virtual Fix-Ups"

While this article does not discuss RoOomy's 3D renderings with Matterport, I could imagine that Redfin is already piloting Matterport + RoOomy 3D Virtual Staging Tours.

Heh, it sure would be nice if MSP's could have access to this....

I am still waiting for Rooomy to respond to my request...

I have an opportunity with a national wide property management company, unless matterport & Rooomy are already there...

Interesting if Redfin is trying to keep MP and Rooomy only for use on REDFIN-listed homes on their site, prohibiting MP models on non-Redfin listings pulled from the MLS, in order to encourage people to list with Redfin. Would be smart move, though dependent on the ignorance of buyer/consumers.

Would like to know when there is an update. Seems like this has been going on longer than I have had my camera 2017!
Is there another platform to get this done? Even if it looks "rough" it is better than nothing to show my properties staged, and builders models.
Is there a solution, for instance, for the Theta 360 to be staged? Buyers can't imaging how rooms or spaces are to be used without some assistance.
Seems like MP is using it's MSP's as last to know. That is unfortunate because they have a built in fan base in us and they are ignoring us for "private label"?
Instead of integrating different platforms, why not make the 3D space unique or someone like GeoCV will and MP will be wondering what happened.

I know for a fact the Matterport is already using it for their Multifamily program. It would seem that they want to keep it for themselves.
