Real estate seeks out any technological advances that can make the process of buying and selling easier for homeowners and soon-to-be homeowners.
The latest piece of technology that everyone is jumping on is Matterport.
But what is Matterport and why is it going to revolutionize the Vancouver real estate market?
The basics about Matterport and its impact on the Vancouver real estate market
In short, Matterport is a type of camera.
What makes the Matterport different from other cameras?
Matterport is revolutionary because it shoots 3D imagery of spaces, allowing for the creation of VR scans to make you feel like you are really in the space. You can virtually walk through a property, exploring the rooms just as you would in person. On top of that, you can get views that allow your to see the property as a whole.
Matterport has already revolutionized real estate in a number of major international cities. Now, Matterport is hitting Vancouver! This new technology is means Vancouverites will now be able to virtually walk through properties from the comfort of their homes. That will allow home buyers to look through many more properties than they could in person.
This means more choice with less work, giving home buyers the greatest chance of finding the home of their dreams. It also makes home buying much easier for those looking to move to Vancouver.
Homeowners can make use of this new technology too. Instead of having to have multiple open houses, now homeowners can put up an online tour of their property and save in-person walkthroughs for serious buyers.
The specs on Vancouver’s Matterport
Draft On Site has a series of Matterport 3D Pro cameras.
These cameras produce three views of the spaces they record:
- The inside view that allows for a digital walkthrough,
- A floorplan view, and
- A dollhouse view, where viewers have a 3D bird’s eye view of the space.
