Veteran real estate agents know that having detailed and informative pictures of their property listing is the key to attracting potential buyers. However, in a hot and competitive market, that’s not always enough to make their listing stand out amongst the crowd. When this happens, Matterport Real Estate Tours has got your back with the perfect solution. Our real estate photography service offers the best and most comprehensive virtual tours in your area.
What Is a Virtual Tour?
A virtual tour is a digital replica of a physical place. As one to one replicas of the space they’re modeled after, virtual tours present an immersive and realistic way to interact with a property.
Ok, but do you really NEED to offer this?
Yes, changing industry standards are prompting marketers, realtors, and homeowners to swap static 2D images for more dynamic and visually appealing 3D models. This is because easy access to 3D and 360 degree camera technology has driven innovation among competitors. In a booming housing market, static images which were once an industry standard, are quickly becoming obsolete. And for good reason. Virtual tour technology allows sellers to present an immersive, interactive, and realistic representation of their home. Proven to provide a noticeable uptick in traffic and leads, virtual house tours are now the go to strategy for real-estate listings.

But back to the point, a Matterport virtual tour offers a unique opportunity for prospective buyers to virtually interact with a listing they are interested in. Given that more than half of home buyers start their search online, it is essential for a property to stand out in this digital space. This is because, with thousands of properties to look through, buyers will gravitate towards listings that are detailed and easy to digest.
An immersive Matterport virtual tour is the most effective way for a listing to be both of these things. Providing a complete, realistic, and undoctored view of a property that static images can’t, a 3D home tour is the best way to engage prospective buyers with a property. While the stunning detail gives an accurate reflection of all the property’s features, it can also help the buyer envision themselves in their new home. This is important because establishing a real and emotional connection to a house is what makes it a home.
Matterport virtual tours also help answer a ton of questions buyers might have about the property. They want to know what the bathrooms look like, what the bedrooms look like, how big the kitchen is, the finish the floors have, and so on. With buyers having specific questions that can’t be answered with a few static images, it’s important for them to get answers promptly and efficiently. With all relevant and important information right in front of them, it will be much easier for buyers to decide if they want to pursue a property further.
Virtual Tours Have Proven Results
Look at these statistics taken from Matterport’s website:
- Agents get 403% more leads from real estate listings with dynamic visual content.
- Virtual Tours get clicked on 40% more than listings without virtual tours.
- Properties featured with a virtual tour get 95% more phone inquiries.
- Virtual Tours generate 49% more qualified leads.
The numbers make it clear. Having a virtual tour is the most effective way to engage clients with your property.
But there are other, more tangible, benefits as well. This is especially true as we try to curb the raging COVID-19 pandemic. As the entire world goes virtual in an effort to mitigate the virus, a virtual home tour presents agents and sellers with a covid-safe way to show off their house. Not only is this safer, but the reduced foot traffic frees up time that would otherwise be spent staging the property. This is particularly helpful because it reduces the chance that an uninterested client, with no intention of making a purchase, will request a tour. As realtors are often busy people, this allows them to maximize leads and show clients more relevant properties.
There is also an added degree of professionalism to properties that feature a virtual home tour. A Matterport 3D model infuses your listing with a cohesive, innovative, and more complete look that is sure to catch the eye of potential applicants. As a realtor or property owner, this demonstrates that you are willing to go the extra mile to present an optimal buying experience.
