Property Panorama Offers Free Agent Profiles Using Structured Data
InstaView Bypasses Zillow and realtor.com to Deliver Listings Directly to Consumers Denver, Colo— June 15, 2017—Property Panorama, the leading producer of real estate virtual tours in North America, today announced it will provide more than 550,000 real estate agents with free InstaView Agent Profiles that deliver the most current and accurate information on the agents and their listings directly to consumers by using structured data. Agents whose multiple listing services carry Property Panorama's InstaView 3.0 virtual tour platform will automatically receive InstaView Agent Profiles that incorporate listing data, including MLS numbers, location, price, specifications, open houses and contact information. InstaView Agent Profiles use structured data, which improve search engine optimization (SEO) and help to populate the content for knowledge panels that appear on the right-hand side of Google searches. By bypassing aggregators like Zillow and Realtor.com, who are one step removed from listing agents and may not have updated and accurate listing data, InstView Agent Profiles give listing agents the capability to reach consumers immediately with new listings and updates like price changes. Consumers who find listing information generated by InstaView on Google search will avoid the confusion created by aggregators who direct consumer inquiries about properties to agents who pay for the leads but may not know anything about the properties. "Sites like Zillow and Realtor.com, syndicators like ListHub and other emerging models are advertising media giants that make hundreds of millions from the content real estate professionals amass to create the very content─listings─that attract consumers to their sites. Instead of breaking down barriers between real estate consumers and listings, these new middlemen are creating an additional layer. Listing agents, who are the original sources of information for every home, are further from buyers than they were 25 years ago," said Property Panorama CEO Mike Barnett, speaking on a panel at the annual conference of the National Association of Real Estate Editors. Barnett said Property Panorama is putting the power of structured data in the hands of hundreds of thousands of agents who have access to the InstaView platform. InstaView's structured data comply with RESO (Real Estate Standards Organization) standards and Schema.org, which is a collaborative site sponsored by Google, Microsoft, Yahoo and Yandex, making it easy for consumers to access listing data and visuals directly. InstaView 3.0 tours are also available on traditional channels ranging from aggregators to public-facing MLSs, and brokers' and agents' sites. "Structured data is a new paradigm that is on the verge of transforming real estate on the Internet. Consumers will find it much easier to get the information they want about listings and agents. By integrating rich listing data with lush visuals into a single package, InstaView allows consumers to find what they are looking for immediately on search engines or browse using a traditional search portal," said Barnett. The InstaView 3.0 platform provides virtual tours for more than 670,000 listings. It includes an image-centric, full-screen virtual tour experience for the highest quality photography and handles any visual media format in use for virtual tours today, including Matterport's immersive media technology, 3DM Digital floorplans, HD and 3DF photography and videography, 360º panoramic photography and more. Property Panorama's InstaView tours are fully automated. They are the only real "click it and forget it" virtual tour system on the market today. InstaView tours update every hour from the MLS, or more frequently if requested. About Property Panorama Property Panorama is the highest rated and number one provider of virtual tours in North America. Since the launch of InstaView, Property Panorama has also been able to maintain its position as the number one provider of non-gaming videos to YouTube. Currently, Property Panorama supplies products to 550,000 Realtors© through 171 multiple listing services and Realtor® boards and associations, as well as directly to independent broker divisions of leading franchises, including Realty One, RE/MAX, and Coldwell Banker.

TREB and BDAR Enter into MLS Services Partnership
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Aug 17, 2016) - The Barrie & District Association of REALTORS® (BDAR) and the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) have entered into an MLS services partnership to provide members with more extensive MLS services and greater resources. On August 11, 2016, the official agreement between the two boards was signed at a BDAR Special Board Meeting, held at the Kempenfelt Centre in Innisfil. "This MLS services partnership will be beneficial to members from both BDAR and TREB as well as consumers," said Mike Douglas, BDAR 2016 President. "Members from both boards will have access to a larger database, creating an easy flow of information for REALTORS® so they can provide the best service to their clients." Recognizing the overlap in markets, this partnership is a responsible step forward that will remove barriers and open the flow of information. "We are moving in the right direction, partnerships like this one will be the way of the future," said Julia Price-Greig, BDAR Executive Officer. "BDAR members already extend into the TREB market and vice versa, making this partnership a natural progression. Access to a more extensive database will benefit all members, their clients, and the industry as a whole." BDAR and TREB will remain separate boards, each with their own identity and member benefits; however, each board will have access to a better database and more resources, enabling Members of both boards to serve their clients more effectively and efficiently. "Leveraging the strengths of our two distinct boards makes good sense," said John DiMichele, TREB CEO. "This partnership is emblematic of how innovative and progressive solutions can bring both our boards into the future. It is impressive that the BDAR and TREB Board of Directors have had the vision to see the value of a partnership and the leadership to bring it to fruition." "As a REALTOR®, it is easy for me to see the value in this partnership," said Larry Cerqua, TREB President. "Being able to provide consumers with the best options for their buying and selling needs is the number one goal of every REALTOR® and, with this agreement, fulfilling that goal will be much easier for TREB and BDAR real estate professionals." It is expected that the full benefits of this switch will be seen in time for the spring market.
