Touring Homes Virtually
Updated: Jun 24, 2020
With the onset of the Coronavirus and the move to social distancing, the Colorado Real Estate Market has a new challenge—showings. For new home buyers, it is impossible to choose a home without viewing it first. But how can you view a home without stepping foot inside of it? Technology has the answer. By utilizing 3D rendering software like Matterport, your agent can give you access to a property and you won't even have to leave your home. Matterport and similar proprietary software platforms have been used for years by a number of industries, from real estate agents to contractors, to digitally map out interior spaces.
So what are the benefits of using Matterport, aside from social distancing? This technology provides many assets. Matterport can create highly realistic virtual environments that make the viewer feel like they’re really in the property. You can interact with the rendered model of the property without sacrificing quality. Also, you can view the space from virtually any angle and get a 360-degree view while exploring from a first-person viewpoint. When it comes to dimensions, the results of the scan are accurate, within 1%, and can produce spatially accurate schematic floor plans too. You can create virtual tags to plan out how you'd utilize a space and you can even take measurements of walls and counter tops to get a better understanding of how big a space is. It's hard to tell if your furniture will fit into a space, even if you are given the dimensions of the room. With this feature, you'll never have to guess if your favorite pieces of furniture will be able to move with you. If you are interested in viewing a property, but need to stay home, ask your agent about Matterport.
