Realtor.com®, one of the largest online real estate services announced today they will be adding Matterport 3D virtual tours on for sale and for rent listings on the Realtor.com® iOS real estate app. This app features the largest and most comprehensive collection of for sale listings among other national competing apps.
“Seeing a home is one of the most critical, but time-consuming elements of the home shopping journey,” said Ryan O’Hara, CEO of realtor.com®. “By leveraging Matterport’s 3D technology, we are giving home buyers the ability to explore properties they are interested in with virtual tours prior to ever setting foot inside a home.”
Real estate agentss can now use the Matterport 3D tours to create more visibility for customers given the demand for this type of experience.
“The combination of realtor.com®’s inventory with Matterport’s immersive user experience gives shoppers the opportunity to visit a tremendous volume of rentals and for-sale properties, from one location, and get the full experience of being inside. It is the most efficient way to search for a new home,” said Bill Brown, CEO of Matterport. “We are excited to see companies like realtor.com® paving the way as tech forward leaders in the real estate industry.”
There are currently thousands of for sale and for rent listings on Realtor.com® that have Matterport 3D tours. These numbers will only be growing as more real estate agents adopt the Matterport 3D tour technology. Realtor.com® is the pioneer in formally connecting to Matterport’s direct feed. This syndicated direct feed expedites, streamlines, and simplifies the process of creating 3D tours on Realtor.com® listings.
Realtor.com® listings that incorporate a Matterport 3D tour will be indicated via a hexagon next to the listing title. Matterport 3D tours are going to change the game for Realtor.com®. Not only are there 3D home tours, but also floorplan views and the ever-popular dollhouse view. Each of these viewpoints provides a unique experience when viewing a home.
