To offer each and every client the opportunity to purchase properties anywhere in the world, with no need to travel physically to see them. This is the main advantage of the tool Matterport, an innovative Virtual Reality Scanner, which, following a prior scan of the property, affords the creation of 3D tours inside of the buildings.
Since this past October, this innovative tool has been compatible with the international website, sothebysrealty.com, as well as with many of the websites of its franchises, including Andorra Sotheby’s International Realty.
Discover a property like never before
With the implementation of this up-and-coming Virtual reality tool, which can also provide a written description, high-resolution photos and high-definition videos, Sotheby’s International Realty is showing its steadfast commitment to the integration of 3D technology. Sotheby’s now offers the users of its websites a functionality never before seen in the Andorran real estate sector, that guarantees an unprecedented immersion experience.
Moreover, the Matterport virtual reality scanner will be doing away with one of the main obstacles that arise when people embark on the property purchase process: the distance from the client. With this tool, using 3D tours that have been produced ahead of time by placing high-tech cameras throughout the property, Matterport technology enables buyers to take a virtual tour through the property without ever having to set foot inside. This is particularly important bearing in mind the global scope of a worldwide corporation such as Sotheby’s International Realty.
Total freedom throughout the entire virtual tour
Unlike normal videos and photo galleries, with the 3D tours created by the Matterport scanner, users have total control over their own explorations of the different rooms of the home. They can look at any room from different angles, moving about with total freedom through the inside of the property.
Much like the Google Street View, the user can start a tour with an aerial view and from there select the first room that he/she wishes to visit. As a result, the 3D tour can actually come to replace a physical visit to the site, drastically reducing the visit time to the different properties and therefore saving valuable time for both agents and future buyers.
An up-and-coming technology
Despite the recent advent of this technology, there is no doubt that virtual visits will play a fundamental role in the future of the real estate sector. This fact is so compelling that since the initial launch of this technology this past October, Sotheby’s International Realty has already entered more than 1,000 properties that are now open for visit via virtual tour, from any computer, tablet or Smartphone. The objective? To offer “open-house” properties 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
