Pleasanton, CA, February 03, 2015 – VirtualTourCafe introduces game-changing technology to their product of services that will over time change consumers demand when searching for homes online. Fox Business News recently interviewed Matterport CEO Bill Brown to talk about the new virtual reality 3-D camera introduced late last year, and the impact it could have on the real estate industry.Real estate virtual tours with 3D Support

Companies like VirtualTourCafe have been offering real estate virtual tours for many years, so what is so unique about this new technology? The difference is that the new camera is able to create 3-D virtual tours of homes by using proprietary software and hardware that produces a doll-house view of the home, as well as a walk-through view and floor plan by using a series of 3-D cameras and sensors to record and measure interior rooms.

Being the first national virtual tour service to incorporate the 3-D modeling technology into the real estate virtual tours theme with agent and broker branding, VirtualTourCafe offers home owners and real estate agents an alternative to the traditional open house. And with international buyers making up 20 to even 30% of home purchases according to the National Association of Realtors®, this can be a game-changer for many real estate agents and Brokers.

VirtualTourCafe launched the new 3D Walkthrough Home Tour service in the San Francisco Bay Area to a great reception by both the real estate community and home owners with plans to expand as the technology gains acceptance.

“Our sellers were extremely impressed with the doll-house view of the 3D Walkthrough Home Tour and said they had never seen anything like it before. They are a busy family with 3 small kids and we had to make the showings worth them all having to leave the home, yet making sure the floorplan worked for clients and giving them the easy access to a virtual 3D open house made it that much easier on everyone.” - Tammy Pryor, Legacy Real Estate...

Tim Denbo This looks like some excellent new technology that will help potential buyer completely visualize the home under consideration. Thanks for the 'heads-up'.

Perhaps in high end luxury homes this will work but its still too new for the  average listing.  Matterport is one company....read an interesting article on this from last year:

This discusses the issue more thoroughly I think
