Guess what? Matterport has officially named Odyssey3D as Toronto’s top Matterport 3D Virtual Tour Provider. What does this mean? It means that real estate agents trust Odyssey3D to capture their listings in 3D more than anyone else in Toronto. Not just anyone can become the top Matterport 3D virtual tour provider in Toronto. Below we detail what makes a Matterport 3D virtual tour special, why Odyssey3D is the best at what we do, and how we can help you present your property in the best light possible!
What is Matterport?
Matterport is the #1 company worldwide for 3D capturing and hosting technology. They’re pretty awesome. That means that being the top Matterport 3D virtual tour provider in Toronto kind of makes us double the best.
What is a Virtual Tour?
You know how when you want to sell your house, you need to take lots of pictures, video, and/or 3D? Well, a virtual tour is when you take all that stuff and put it on a webpage so that anyone can see it. It allows people to tour the house…virtually. See what I did there? Some virtual tours are better than others, but the best ones give you a fully interactive experience, making it the next best thing to being there. That’s where the Matterport 3D comes in.
What is a 3D Virtual Tour?
Have you ever wished you could walk through a house without having to actually go in? That’s a 3D virtual tour. It’s kind of like google street view, but inside. We have special Matterport cameras that scan the house and software that constructs a 3D virtual model of the inside. As the top Matterport 3D virtual tour provider in Toronto, we do this a lot, so we’re pretty good at scanning all the right places to make it as realistic as possible. Then we take that Matterport 3D virtual tour and put it on a regular virtual tour page with all the other photos and video. There you have it. All the media on a beautiful page that allows you to experience the house almost like you’re really there.
Why is 3D better?
There’s a reason we’re the top provider of Matterport 3D virtual tours in Toronto. We know the value they bring to each real estate listing, so we’ve built our business around providing this top quality product for our customers. We aren’t shy about letting real estate agents know how much they’ll benefit from 3D Matterport virtual tours, and they quickly agree. That’s why we provide so many of them. Why are they better? I’m so glad you asked!
- They are a safe way to tour a home: Matterport 3D virtual tours allow you to get a realistic feeling of being inside a house without having to leave the safety of your home. This is great for a lot of people, like those who are immunocompromised or elderly. This benefit has made 3D virtual tours extremely popular over the last year as people looked for COVID-19 safe ways to buy and sell their homes. More on that later.
- They make real estate listings more accessible: You know who else can’t see houses in person? Non-local buyers. Whether they’re looking for a place across town or across the world, some buyers just physically can’t see the listing in person. Matterport 3D virtual tours open up the listings to these potential buyers in a way that traditional photo based virtual tours just could never do.
- They are more realistic: We’ve already established who these Matterport 3D tours would be good for, but why are they better than just photos or video? It’s pretty simple: they’re more realistic. When you’re walking through a Matterport 3D virtual tour, you can move forwards and backwards, side to side, you can look up and down and even in all the closets – let’s be honest, closet space is important! You can take it at your own pace, go anywhere you want, and look at everything. It helps you get a better sense of the house than a video that takes you on one path, or photos that only show you the shiny parts.
- They give the WOW-factor: Everyone knows that 3D is pretty awesome. As the top provider of 3D Matterport virtual tours in Toronto, we see all the listings that only have photos, and let’s just say they don’t exactly pop. When there are hundreds of houses to look at, as a home seller, you want yours to stand out in the memory of the home buyer. And you can bet that an awesome 3D virtual tour will help that happen!
What type of houses is a 3D tour best for?
Now I bet you’re thinking “ya, that’s great for big fancy houses, but you wouldn’t really need that for a little condo”. Wrong! Remember that list above? None of those reasons have anything to do with how big or fancy the house is. The benefits of Matterport 3D virtual tours extend to every single house. Just check out the condo below! Want to reach more people? Want to keep the community safe in these COVID times? Want to make your listing bomb? If you said “yes” to any of those, the answer is Matterport 3D virtual tour. There’s literally no down side. And you know who you can trust to capture it for you? You guessed it! Toronto’s top provider of Matterport 3D virtual tours!
What else can 3D do?
Matterport 3D virtual tours are great for a lot more than just real estate. Did you know that we have a whole department just for capturing commercial spaces? From art galleries that want to make their exhibits more accessible, to wedding venues that want to attract out-of-town couples, to factories that want to show the working conditions for potential employees, the applications are endless. Do you have a commercial space? I bet that a Matterport 3D virtual tour would benefit you in some awesome way, even if you haven’t thought of it just yet. Got a big space that isn’t commercial? We’ve captured lots of those too! Schools, mosques, libraries – no space is too big/small/public/private/quiet/wild to benefit from a Matterport 3D virtual tour!
How has COVID-19 affected the market for Matterport 3D virtual tours?
Hey, that’s a pretty good question. The answer is pretty much what you would expect. With the coming of the pandemic, the demand for Matterport 3D virtual tours has sky rocketed. Now more than 75% of the virtual tours we deliver include a Matterport 3D virtual tour. The interesting thing is that, as cases have decreased and more people are getting vaccinated, the demand for Matterport 3D virtual tours hasn’t decreased. It makes sense though. As with many other aspects of our world and daily lives, COVID-19 has permanently altered the landscape of the real estate industry. We saw the trend in this direction long before the pandemic. It just came along and gave that trend a boost in the direction of the future.
That was a lot of words. Give me a tl;dr please!
