The 3DShot app can now be used to create panoramas of apartments

Jun 4 · 3 min read

Real estate visualization plays a vital role when it comes to selling or buying a home and it often influences the buyers’ first impression. Immersive 3D Views are an amazing way to showcase your listing to realtors and potential buyers. Digitizing spaces used to be costly and time-consuming, but that’s all about to change with the release of a new mode of the 3DShot app that will allow anyone to create a high-quality 3D View of a room using only an iPhone.

Statistics from the past five years tell us that the rental housing market has been on the rise globally and will continue to grow in the next decade. For example, in the USA almost 35% of the population are renting instead of buying due to lower costs. 49% of people who rent housing in the USA are under 30 years old (also known as millennials). It is important for them to be able to rent a house or a flat and not live in their own apartment, as renting offers flexibility in deciding where to live and work.

Millennials are more tech-savvy; they could change the way we shop for and buy homes. Most of them want digital home shopping tools and are comfortable making big purchases online. According to statistics, today more than 80% of millennials would like to view 3D when shopping for a home. 39% of them said they would be comfortable buying a home online and 59% report they would be comfortable making an offer on a home after viewing a 3D tour.

The Cappasity team has decided to step outside product imaging and have released a new mode for digitizing apartments. Now you can download the new version of 3DShot and digitize entire rooms.

Creating 3D Views of apartments can be highly beneficial for real estate agents, or those who are subletting their rooms. Embedding immersive, interactive 3D content into a listing of an apartment or a house has high potential to increase user interaction and therefore boost sales. According to Matterport, adding 3D immersive content to a real estate listing decreases the time on the market for a house by 31% and increases the price by 4–9%.

Here is how you can digitize a room with the 3DShot app:

1) Stand in the middle of the room and make sure to choose decent lighting.

2) Open the 3DShot app and start to record. Slowly circle around yourself to record the space. Move at a steady pace for the best result.

3) Edit the resulting 3D View by choosing the start frame, adding filters, and changing the contrast and brightness. Add a name for the 3D View.

4) Get the embed code for the 3D View on the Cappasity platform.

5) Embed the code on a listing that supports 3D Views and enjoy increased customer engagement!
