Real estate virtual tours provider VirtualTourCafe.com introduced game-changing technology to their product of services last year that will over time change consumers' demand when searching for homes online. This week during Inman Connect San Francisco, Inman News featured a 3D showcase provided by VirtualTourCafe as the 3-D Home of the Day!
VirtualTourCafe has been offering real estate virtual tours and professional photography for five years, so what is so unique about this new technology? The difference is that the new Matterport 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.
“My sellers were amazed at the quality of the photographs and the look and feel of the 3D tour! With a custom built home like this one it is difficult to showcase it with just a few pictures. The 3D doll-house view shows off the unique floor plan, huge custom garage, and lets potential buyers from all over the world see the home as if they were here in person. We will use you again, thank you for a great job!” said Matt Hagar, Vice President, JMA Commercial Services.
Being the first national virtual tour service to incorporate professional photography, traditional real estate virtual tours, as well as the new 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™ and professional photography 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.
VirtualTourCafe, LLC is based in Pleasanton, California with clients coast to coast and in three countries. The business offers both a Do-It-Yourself subscription service and a We Do-It-For-You full-service professional photography option in select markets.
