What’s the difference between Professional Floor Plans and Matterport Floor Plans?
At Open Homes Photography we offer a few different types of Floor Plan options in order to meet our clients different needs, budgets, or aesthetic choices.
Our “Professional Floor Plan” service, which is the commonly known drafting service, includes sending out a qualified and highly trained draftsperson to your property to physically take measurements in person using precision measuring tools This service is completed in accordance with ANSI standards, offering very accurate renderings of the property. These plans also include dimensions (room sizes) and square foot calculations free upon request, as well as fully measured non living spaces (such as closets, decks, etc..) by request.
We also offer a “Matterport Floor Plan” service that can be generated from Matterport scans. Because these are derived from camera scans and not precision measuring tools, they are not based on the same ANSI standards and cannot include square footage, some room dimensions, etc. However, as a low cost add-on to our Matterport service these are a perfect marketing tool to give potential buyers the lay of the land, so to speak. While these plans DO NOT include closets, other storage rooms or non-living spaces, you can add on any additional “detached” space needed to these plans (such as decks, garages, and some other spaces) for $25 per additional scan, by having the Matterport artist specifically scan those areas.
How long are Matterport Scans Live and available to access?
Matterport “Spaces” aka the property listing link or viewer for your listing’s Matterport are kept “live” and online for 6 months. After 6 months we are forced to “archive” in our Matterport account. They do not get deleted or can be activated any time for a fee of $75. This cost is a hard cost for us as part of our Matterport account limitations and simply passed on to the end user. Our goal is not to monetize this fee, so we are more than happy to also transfer your Matterport Listing Space to your own Matterport account for free. As of this writing, Matterport offers accounts that can be created for $120/year and up depending on how many Spaces you would like to keep active.
What does “virtual tour” mean to you?
Many other vendors similar to ours use the term loosely. For some a “virtual tour” is a slide show of still images, for others, it is a website with photos.
For us, it is a 3D matterport scan that will allow you to show the home by swiping from a smartphone or using arrows from the keyboard. The matterport scan can also be viewed using virtual reality glasses. Providing your potential buyer an actual virtual walkthrough!
We offer ALL of these services!
