Look for a new home using Virtual Reality

Great article over at Fortune.com about Matterport and how it is disrupting the Real Estate Industry. Here are some excerpts:

Let’s say you’re in the market for a new home—but before driving all over the place (and spending more time in the car than in houses) you first want to whittle down the listings provided by your realtor.

Imagine, though, if you could strap on a VR headset and virtually walk through the houses on your list. Matterport’s existing technology lets you do this with a mouse and browser, but doing so via VR could make the experience even more interactive.

Matterport is hoping that the coming wave of virtual reality devices will revolutionize how people screen properties—and it already offers consumers the chance to explore select locations through the Samsung Gear VR headset.

“What Matterport does particularly well is we convey what it feels like to be in a space,” says Brown. “When you’re thinking about buying a home, the biggest tool people use now … is time. They drive all over the place , because that’s the only way to get a feeling of what it’s like to be in the space. What we do is try to give an immersive feeling to significantly reduce the amount of time they have to use to get a feel.”

How The Altman Brothers use Matterport

How The Altman Brothers use Matterport from Matterport on Vimeo.

“It’s pretty simple. If you’re going to meet with two different agents and they talk about exactly the same thing – you have a hard decision. But if you meet with those same two agents and one of them has this incredible [Matterport] technology that offers all these advantages and the other agent doesn’t. It’s a clear choice. You’re going with the agent that uses Matterport.”
