Need an updated floor plan with that virtual tour – not a problem. While sellers fall in love with the virtual tour experience, buyers have come to expect floor plans to tell the truth about how the rooms fit together and the flow between them; and every listing needs a floor plan. According to the National Association of REALTORS® 2021 Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends report, floor plans are the second most important listing visual. "The convenience of the floorplan feature on RICOH 360 Tours is both an incredible time saver and a terrific feature to offer clients which helps my team stand out from our competitors," added Karin Provencher at NH Realty Gals, a full time New Hampshire real estate agent, having handled over 1,300 transactions.

Zillow 3D Home tours now are automatically shared to Redfin
Integration provides immersive virtual tour experience regardless of platform SEATTLE, May 12, 2022 -- Zillow 3D Home tours and interactive floor plans are now automatically shared to Redfin. Real estate agents now have the ability to quickly upgrade all their listings with best-in-class immersive virtual tours across platforms, allowing home shoppers on both sites to explore their targeted house with outstanding clarity. "Zillow's goal is to give agents the best tools to allow home buyers the power to visualize themselves in a new place, regardless of what site they choose to browse with," said Josh Weisberg, VP of Zillow's Rich Media Experience team. "Customers have dramatically raised their expectations for a virtual home shopping experience over the past two years. This technology allows agents and photographers to meet those expectations with a seamless, immersive tour experience that is easily made and shared." Previously, agents needed to manually enter a 3D Home link in order for their listings to appear on Redfin. Now, Zillow will automatically syndicate agents' 3D Home tours to listings on Redfin, and will include an option to opt out if desired. Additional automatic syndications to more real estate websites and MLSs are coming soon. 3D Home tours benefit customers, agents, photographers Zillow's free-to-build tours combine ultra-clear, 360-degree views with easy navigation and interactive floor plans that show shoppers where they are in the house, the camera's direction and perspective, and the room's dimensions. In today's fast-paced real estate market — where listings linger a median of just nine days before going pending — house hunters need to be able to efficiently evaluate homes and decide where to focus their energy. Using virtual tours, customers can quickly winnow their options and gain a leg up on the competition. "My job is to make homes stand out — to build excitement about my listing and generate the best possible offer for my sellers," said Georgia Stevens, managing broker at Compass and past president of Seattle King County Realtors. "The agent with the best tools wins, and Zillow's tools make it so easy to navigate the floor plan, understand exactly what you're looking at and imagine how you'd live in that home. Perspective is everything. This is what makes a buyer call their agent and say, 'This is the home I want to see.'" Zillow's 3D Home tour provides agents a cost-effective way to showcase listings and generate more leads, while photographers benefit from additional opportunities to capture listings content. Homes on Zillow that included 3D Home tours saw improved performance compared to those without, earning 81% more views and being saved by buyers 53% more often. About Zillow Group Zillow Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: Z and ZG) is reimagining real estate to make it easier to unlock life's next chapter.

There is not measuring of rooms required. "When I saw the first floor plan generated from just the photos in our tours, it felt a bit like magic," says Jeff Turner, CEO North America for immoviewer. "But it's not magic as much as it is math. As long as we know the height of the lens from the floor, we can generate dimensionally accurate floor plans from 360° images. We are excited to finally be able to launch this service. We know our clients are going to love being able to turn their 360° cameras into a floor plan creation power tool." The immoviewer software platform is designed to accept images from any compatible 360° camera, and the app itself can create tours with just your mobile device as well.

HomeDiary Plugs into MoxiWorks Power Strip
MoxiWorks adds HomeDiary as the newest member of their Cloud open platform December 3, 2017 – Seattle, WA – MoxiWorks recently partnered with FloorPlanOnline's HomeDiary service to offer HomeDiary PRO to MoxiWorks users. HomeDiary is a homeowner management platform that includes a free 3D space planner, as well as other tools to help create a digital record of the home. HomeDiary PRO helps REALTORS® stay connected to their client base throughout the whole homeownership lifecycle. Through the Moxi integration, PRO not only provides marketing tools for the listing side of the transaction, such as completely hands-free, automated single property websites and the free use of the advanced 3D floor plan engine, it also enables agents to stay relevant with their client base as they live in their home with the included HomeDiary sponsorship for an unlimited number of clients. The HomeDiary PRO system is extremely affordable - priced at less than the daily cost of a cup of coffee. "There has been a lot of discussion recently about staying in touch with your client base, or sphere of influence," says Mike McHenry, VP of Channels and Partnerships. "After all, it is somewhere between six to ten times more expensive to get a new client than keep an existing one. But tools have been lacking that create compelling reasons for homeowners to use and engage, as they are mostly singular or one-time use tools. This is where we see HomeDiary filling a vital gap for the agent and their clients." As a digital record of a home, HomeDiary is where homeowners can log projects, photos, improvements, and documents for easy reference to create a digital record of the home. HomeDiary's 2D and 3D space planner allows homeowners to draw a room or an entire floor plan if desired. They can plan furniture layouts, virtually change flooring, plan patio and landscaping ideas, and even play with paint color palettes. Homeowners can even experiment with what that open concept might look like, before they pick up a hammer. It enables any home to have a 3D floor plan visualizer, similar to what you see on those popular home improvement shows. "Our goal is to make documenting your home quick and easy, and to enable every home in America to have 3D floor plan, just like what you see on TV," said Kris Cone, CEO of HomeDiary. "Plus, the HomeDiary platform allows agents to leverage that great content created for the listing to be a useful asset for the buyer, just by claiming the home from the tour, something no other tour company can do." HomeDiary PRO helps agents provide a simple documentation tool to their client base and add another reason to reach out to their sphere. With all of the natural disasters lately, this is a big problem needing a solution. According to HomeDiary research, some 75% of homeowners have no system to document their home for insurance purposes. This creates an issue if disaster strikes. Homeowners are at risk of losing thousands of dollars in value if a fire, flood, hurricane or tornado strikes and there is no record of what was in the home. HomeDiary can help the homeowner reduce that risk in a fast and easy way. About MoxiWorks MoxiWorks is a residential brokerage services company that makes agents significantly more productive and brokerages more profitable by helping them effectively run their businesses. MoxiWorks' integrated tools are centered on a sphere-based selling process that drastically increases agents' repeat and referral business, while lowering overall technology, training and support costs for the brokerage. With MoxiWorks, brokerages are able to make their agents' lives simpler and their businesses more successful. More information at moxiworks.com. About HomeDiary Every HOME has a STORY to tell. HomeDiary was created by a group of veterans from the online real estate industry to create a platform to make it easy to manage and document any home. Their mission is to help you better manage your most important asset to improve its value and reduce the risk of ownership.

Floorplanner Announces New and Improved Gallery Enhancements
Recently we temporarily removed our gallery of public floor plans as we had a few improvements in mind. As of today, we're happy to say that the gallery is now back and better than ever. With so many designs, we figured the best way to present the gallery was by dividing it into three different sections: Featured, Fresh and Published. Featured The featured section is much like the gallery we had before, featuring designs that we noticed and wanted to share with you. The floor plans you'll find in this section will give you a good idea of what Floorplanner is capable of, and a good look at what people are using the website for — from building their dream holiday home, to laying out a sculpture garden or even their new café. In any case, there's plenty of inspiration to be found in these projects, so please take a look. Fresh The fresh section of the gallery shows you all of designs that are being saved by our users right now — freshest designs first. Published Finally, we have the published section. This is where our all of our Plus and Pro users' published plans can be found for all the world to see. Many of the plans you'll see here are of houses that are being put up for sale or rent. So if like a design enough, there's a chance you could get the real thing We hope that you enjoy the new gallery, whether you just want to have a quick browse, or dig in a bit deeper for some inspiration (the best artists steal, after all).
