[Case Study] RE/MAX Agent increases listing appointment conversion from 60% to 95% and reduces days on market by 56%

Services for Real Estate Pros with Matterport

Real estate agents - are you looking for innovative ways to impress home sellers and win more listings? Matterport recently conducted a case study with Gina Howarth, an agent from RE/MAX First Choice in Rhode Island, who started using Matterport in October 2016 in her listing presentation to close more deals.


Since then, she has improved her conversions on listing appointments from 60% to 95% after using Matterport, having only lost one listing in 5 months. In addition, by leveraging the Matterport 3D tours in their online marketing, her average DOM went from 77 days (the state average) to 43 days, a 56% decrease.

I like Matterport- and use it on many of my listings - I guess I need to use it on even more!

Matterport is impressive, no doubt. I don't think its for everyone in every market though.

considering... Linda, in your opinion,  do you use Matterport in all your listings or there is a minimum price that is really worthy to have available?

Your "Download PDF" link does not work — Nothing downloads — link refers one to another page with a (variation?) of the proposition labeled "Download Case Study" — which also doesn't download anything.

The baseline of 60% conversion rate on listing appointments is a pretty weak starting point. I'll check out the case study

Linda, 95% is quite impressive and nothing to be too bashful about really in any way. Good luck and continued success!

Had some issues downloading your report using Chrome. Had to close and reopen the browser, but I did finally see the case study show up in my inbox.

Hi I l am really impressed by the finish product of Matterport, I purchased all they had to offer recently doll house view, pictures (stills) and the 3D tour - the home sold quickly but I was a bit dismayed at how few people had viewed the 3D tour unless I showed it to them.  I got the feeling that buyers agents for the listing did not want to show their buyers as it was not something that they or their company's offer, maybe - maybe not?

I don't hear much about Matterport locally. There are quite a few alternatives to purchase if the need arises. It is difficult to keep up with all of the technology that comes at us.  It's a good problem to have.

I love Matterport technology!  I saw the presentation and am waiting for my seller to be ready in a few days.  Can't wait to see it and how it will impact my business.
