The Future of Real Estate Marketing Has Arrived

First National Palm Beach & The Pines has just imported the latest Matterport 3-D Pro 2 3D camera.

The new camera has 4K photo quality with fully immersive 3-D and Virtual Reality Tours all within easy, cost-effective, reach of our clients.

Why is this so important? About 90% of buyers start their search for a property on the Internet. The days of buyers coming to an agent’s window with a notepad are becoming few and far between.

They have started their search on Wednesday or Thursday, they’ve made a short list of properties that are open for inspection that they want to look at on the weekend. There is nothing hit and miss about it, the more they can find out about the property before they go there the better.

We have been using the early version Matterport camera since the middle of 2016 so we have a lot of experience with how to use them and what they can achieve. Often one buyer comes here from out of town and finds a property and the other buyer isn’t in a position to look at the property. On many occasions the second buyer has decided to trust the partner, usually a husband or wife, and they make an offer based on a 3-D tour only.

We overhear buyers come through Opens and talk about features of the property that they’ve already seen on the tour.

Currently we have 196 live tours including sold properties. Out of that we’ve had 236,300 impressions and 54,400 visits. Not only that but according to www.realestate.com.au people spend far more time looking at a property that has a tour or video compared to a set of photos.

Take some time to watch the Matterport produced. At First National we totally endorse everything they claim regarding the deeper buyer immersion in the process.
