Looking For Feedback for DaVinci Toursketch

DaVinci Toursketch-Lissa Uder, Your Lebanon MO Real Estate AgentWhile looking online today for a software program that would be easy to use to draw out floor plans and calculate square footage, I ran across an interesting program. Not only would it let me draw them out, calculate the footage, and add features such as furniture and such, it has a virtual tour built in.

 

 

 

The name of the program is DaVinci Toursketch by a la mode, inc. I was wondering if any of you have tried this program and how is it working for you?

 

The website shows a price of $249. I called the customer service number to ask a few questions and was told that they are selling at a discounted rate of $199 until the end of February.

 

I looked into programs such as Apex and ACI. Apex is about $250 and appears fairly easy to use, but does not have the added bonus of pictures and descriptions.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I'm parking to see what comments you get from others who have used either of these floor plan sketching products or any others :)

Frank & Sharon: Feel free to park as long as you want. I've been wanting to add a floor plan to my listings for as long as I can remember. I've been spending my $$'s elsewhere though. I thought since Point2 is going to raise their rates in March and that site hasn't been very beneficial to me this year that I might take what I'm spending there and use it for the interactive floor plan.

If you go to the DaVince site, they have a demo that just about has me sold! Let me know what you think after viewing it.

Funny, I'm not liking my Point 2 site either. I think it's outdated totally with its look and the way it's set up. I'm going to check it out. I've heard complaints about a la mode as well. I'm thinking of going to someone like Dakno or even doing a Wordpress blog with cool IDX.

Yeah, I'm not interested in anything a la mode is offering except the DaVinci software. I already have more websites than I can keep up with. lol I've heard good things about Wordpress though.

OK, DaVinci rocks! It looks so easy. Our Propety Appraiser has building sketches that outline the houses with measurements - this will help a lot!

Great discussion. I think floor plans are a real selling asset -- something I've also been thinking of offering. Thanks for the tip!

Ok, I bought the software. I'll let you know what I think after I have time to play around with it. Deena, I see alot of web traffic from out of state buyers. I think this will make it alot easier for them. I can only imagine what a stager could do with it!

Lisa, how do you like your software? I just spoke to DaVinci and they aren't compatible with a Mac yet.

Are you enjoying it? Would love to see some samples :)
