The Matterport team took to Las Vegas last week for the 2015 LeadingRE Annual Conference. Forward-thinking brokers and agents gathered in this forum to see the latest in real estate industry trends, and hear sage advice from speakers like former mayor Rudy Giuliani and business author Peter Sheahan.
We were excited to bring our 3D technology to this esteemed real estate community. Leading RE brokers see the advantage of using 3D Showcase in their local marketplaces. Some bought a camera for their brokerage, while others discussed plans to use Matterport’s growing network of service providers, like fellow exhibitors Planomatic and VHT.
Brokerage website developers are also eager to incorporate Matterport 3D Showcases into their products. We happily make this possible by making the addition of our content to web pages as easy as embedding a YouTube video—so any brokerage can easily implement 3D content online.
We’ve gone one step beyond online content with our new VR Showcase, which allows users to view Matterport content in virtual reality on the Gear VR platform. It is always fun for us to see the amazed faces of people who are trying out our real-world content in virtual reality for the first time.
The excitement around technologies like our VR Showcase shows how technology is poised to make a huge impact on the real estate industry. Agents and brokers alike are hungry for new tools and ways to add value for their clients. No one knows exactly how the industry will evolve, but it’s clear that the technology will play a major role in the evolution of how brokers, agents, buyers, and sellers interact in this dynamic industry.
