3D Showcase Virtual Tours

Buying and Selling a home in Lake Norman/Charlotte just got easier and more exciting! GW Estates and Homes is very thrilled to announce we are the first local real estate firm in Lake Norman to offer this amazing new innovative technology for all of our listings known as Matterport’s 3D Showcase.

GW Estates and Homes believes being on the cutting edge of technology is very important in today’s fast pace digital world. According to NAR’s 2014 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, 92% of consumers search online for homes. Having professional photographs and a home professionally staged has proven to help a home sell quicker and for more money.  Introducing Matterport’s 3D Showcase into the market has proven even more beneficial than professional photographs, videos and virtual tours.  In other markets which have been offer the 3D Showcase it has significantly reduced the days on market, increased the amount of engagement and number of views by around 200x more than that of a video and photographs.

With Matterport’s 3D Showcase it gives a window through which buyers and agents can view your home as an interactive tour that allows for free roaming exploration in a 3D space, giving an unparalleled look into what it’s like to actually be there. Buyers and Agents are able to view a floorplan or dollhouse view and move around as if you are in the home. This new solution with the mash-up of photography and three dimensional data has only been possible since July 2014 when Matterport introduced 3D Showcase.
