The Digital Pro is revolutionizing the way real estate professionals create the best marketing materials for their properties. In fact, properties marketed with 3D tours receive 95% more calls than those without. 

So, whether you're working in residential or commercial real estate, Matterport's Digital Pro package offers an affordable, all-in-one solution for all your marketing visual needs, including a 3D tour, (25) HDR  photos, a 2D floor plan, and an intro video.

Let’s take a look at how each of these components can take your real estate business to the next level.

Capture interest with enhanced photography

High-quality photography is an excellent way for realtors to showcase their properties. By partnering with Matterport, real estate professionals can create visually stunning images for their marketing materials without having to hire a separate photographer. 

Win more property listings and close more deals with a 3D tour

Creating a 3D tour for your property has never been easier, thanks to the Matterport app which works with any iOS and Android device, or if you want, leave everything in the hands of a technician who’s been vetted and trained through Matterport’s Capture Services.

With a 3D virtual tour, you can now:

  • Offer 3D virtual tours from anywhere, at anytime

3D virtual tours give potential home and property lessors control over how they want to navigate a space, from wherever they might be, and at their leisure.

  • Give guided tours to curate the viewer experience

If you have a specific story you want to tell about a property, the 3D tour comes with a feature called Story mode that allows you to curate the presentation, adding on-screen titles and descriptions at certain tour stops to convey that story.

  • Call out important details with tags

Real estate professionals can also add helpful tags to their Matterport space to communicate valuable information. For example, a residential real estate agent can tag appliance brands or recent updates while a commercial real estate agent can tag amenities such as hot desk locations and signage opportunities.

  • Capture people’s imaginations with virtual staging

With virtual staging, digital content such as furniture and decor can be added to a physical space, transforming an otherwise empty place into a warm home or welcoming office.

  • Get found on Google Street View

By embedding a digital twin into Google Street View, potential buyers or renters can get a better sense of a property's surrounding location, including nearby amenities and transportation.

Illustrate the layout with a floorplan

Digital Pro comes with a schematic floor plan so that people can get an easy-to-read visual of the property's layout. It can also be used in marketing materials, such as brochures and flyers, to paint a more complete picture of the property.
