What is Matterport?
A Matterport is a 3D and 360 view of your property. It gives the user the ability to experience your property as if they were there.
What is the benefit of a Matterport?
Allows your prospective guests or buyers to experience your house before travelling to see it. As a rental facility, most guest do not have time to fly in and check out your rental so the Matterport allows them to have a virtual immersive tour. For sellers, it gives potential buyers and accurate display of your property. Many times, pictures are low quality, don’t allow you to see the flow of the house, or just not enough information. The Matterport allows for a potential buyer to experience your house from home and gives you a higher chance of them visiting your property.
What should I do before the shoot?
Make sure the space is ready to be showcased. It is best when the space is “staged” and ready to be shown to others. Remove any personal items that you do not want seen in the Matterport. Envision how you would like potential customers to view your place. Also please turn on all the lights in the space to ensure best quality of shoot.
What will you do when you get here?
It takes about 15 minutes for me to get set up and see how best to shoot the house. During the shoot I will make notes of areas that should be showcased, marked, and get a flow for the house. I request the customer to give me an idea of how they want to present their place so that I can make sure the final product meets any specific needs. At the end of the day this is your property and I want to make it look Amazing so please feel free to express any ideas, concerns, or comments so I can accurately showcase your property.
Do I need to be present for the shoot?
I prefer customers show up for the beginning of the shoot so that I can make notes as mentioned above. If it is a longer shoot they are more than welcome to leave and I will text them when I’m finished. I do require payment at the end of every shoot and will return the footage with 48 hours. All footage can be MLS friendly.
Can you take 3D pictures of the exterior of the property?
The camera does not operate extremely well outside in direct sunlight. If you would like exterior photos I am able to do 360 stills or do the shoot at night which will allow for the camera to add the outside. Drone services are also available for exterior shots and videos.
How long does a shoot take?
Depends on the size of the place but we average 1 hour per 1,000 SQ FT.
What if I do not like the shoot?
All requests and changes to the scans need to be done before the end of shoot. Once the scan is processed in the cloud it cannot be modified. Post production items such as screenshots and Mattertags can be edited at any point. If a new scan is requested you will need to pay for a brand new photoshoot.
Are drones safe?
Drones are categorized as unmanned aircrafts by the FAA and can be dangerous. During a shoot as long as you are near myself or the operator or inside the building you should not be concerned.
Do you have a drone license?
Yes I have my Part 107 Unmanned Aircraft Systems license and have been registered with the FAA
