What is a Matterport 3D Virtual Tour?


Matterport 3D tours offer prospective clients/customers or visitors the ability to take a tour without ever stepping a foot on the premises. Matterport uses a three-dimensional camera system to create realistic, fully immersive experiences. It allows the viewer to explore the location from a variety of vantage points, view the individual details of a property and get a feel for the space from the comfort of their home. The average listing with a 3D tour sold for up to 90% higher and closed up to 31% faster. (Over 90% of the listings with 3D tours used Matterport) Another study also showed that homes with a Matterport 3D digital twin sold 20% faster (fewer days on market) than properties that did not have a Matterport 3D virtual walkthrough.

What does it look like?

What can it be used for?

The 3D renderings it produces can benefit a wide range of industries.
