Pros & Cons – Should I do a Matterport for my listing?
Matterport is a new technology which creates a 3-D map of a home. Your customer is able to walk through the home from anywhere in the world. It lets your customer zoom out, zoom in, spin around, and move around in the home, in 3D space. Below we are going to discuss the pros and cons of Matterport virtual tour and if it is worth it for your listing.
Impressing your clients
As a real estate agent, your clients are the most important aspect of your work. Your job is to make them happy and sell the home. You don’t want them to think someone else could have done it better. In recent years real estate marketing and technology has been booming and we have been seeing many marketing innovations in the field. It is still early in the Matterport phase, many people have still not seen it so if you were the first person to introduce it to your clients and have your listing/their home stand out not only are you going to get more views but also your customers will be very satisfied with your work.
Showings From Anywhere
Matterport is one of the more important ones, because of all the multinational relocation that is going on you really need your viewers to be able to see the home as if they were there regardless of where they are in the world.
Redfin and Matterport are connected. When you get a Matterport redfin is automatically notified and the virtual tour is uploaded onto the redfin listing. It is also uploaded on VRBO (Only applicable to vacation rentals).
Zillow does not pull your Matterport, however you can do a Zillow 3-D tour which is pretty much the same thing. This will boost your listing on Zillow.
