The real estate company Engel & Völkers has announced the use of innovative technology by the US company Matterport to offer clients virtual property viewings. The Matterport System enables Engel & Völkers to capture 3D immersive experiences that are far superior to traditional 360° virtual tours. This allows potential buyers to get a first impression of a property and explore its rooms on computer, smartphone, tablet or via virtual reality headset. Engel & Völkers is working with Matterport to further optimise the way they bring properties to life online.
“The property industry, like many other sectors, is facing the challenge of digitalisation. Technologies like the Matterport Pro 3D Camera, which enable virtual property viewings, will become increasingly important in improving the efficiency of the sales process,” said Christian Evers, Member of the Board of Engel & Völkers AG.
“Having a leading global real estate company such as Engel & Völkers use the Matterport technology is a great endorsement. Adding high-quality visual content online allows our clients to engage with a worldwide audience to help drive more qualified buyers to properties. We are looking forward to seeing the benefits Matterport can bring to the sales and leasing process throughout the Engel & Völker’s portfolio, as we continue to bring state-of-the-art 3D immersive experiences and virtual reality to the global property industry,” said Andy Leventhal, Vice President International at Matterport.
Engel & Völkers has already applied the Matterport technology to the presentation of an exclusive apartment in Hamburg’s Othmarschen district. The premium property is currently being brokered by the Engel & Völkers Market Center Elbe. To the 3D tour.
