At REILLY, REALTORS®, we're always coming up with new ways to stay innovative. Technology is a huge part of the industry, and there's a reason our company website is one of the best when it comes to Austin real estate - we offer some of the most cutting-edge tools and applications on the market, allowing thousands of people daily to easily search for homes and neighborhoods. So when the opportunity arose to implement some of the latest technology Matterport has to offer, it was an easy decision.
Founded in 2011, Matterport is a growing tech company that services not only the real estate industry, but also engineering, construction, travel, and more. With their unique take on 3D and virtual reality, they can create a complete three-dimensional representation of a location - in this case, a complete virtual tour of a home. These tours can be accessed via desktop, mobile, and VR platforms, and offer a unique experience allowing the user to do a 360 walk through and feel like they're actually in the home.
For buyers that access home listings from the REILLY, REALTORS® website, this technology is invaluable. Being able to see a home in such detail helps them decide if they want to tour the home in person, and allows them to revisit certain areas and really get a feel for what the home is like. Sellers benefit from this technology as well; they're able to make sure the best of their home is showcased, and get their listing more attention since it offers such a unique platform for home viewing.
