Virtual 360° viewings for your property

The progress made by digitisation and the growing dominance of online activities allow the real estate sector to evolve in line with new developments. Nowadays, apartments, houses and mansions are commercialised through online marketing to a large extent, and the future of the industry lies in the digital field. Your real estate partner Engel & Völkers Luxembourg is at the forefront of the latest trends in order to offer you the exclusivity of a state-of-the-art service. The Internet established itself as a major place for the sale of real estate some fifteen years ago and, since then, new innovations and technologies have regularly appeared. We are constantly expanding our range of brokerage options, both in terms of content and technology. Thanks to an innovative solution developed by the 3D modelling company Matterport, it is now possible for the first time to visit our properties as if you were there. With Engel & Völkers Luxembourg, you can now move freely around a property thanks to our virtual tours with the Matterport camera - the best 3D modelling tool specially developed for the real estate sector.

Digital Marketing Excellence - Optimal enhancement of your property

Matterport represents the latest advance in terms of online virtual tours. The technology developed by the company allows people interested in a property for sale to experience a virtual visit - whether it is a house, a villa, or an apartment. Matterport allows its users to move virtually inside rooms and floors to get a precise and concrete first impression thanks to the 360° panoramic view. A much more dynamic and realistic impression than photographs of a property can give. In addition, this virtual tour is supported by additional textual information to draw the user's attention to the salient features of a property. Thanks to Matterport, the future of real estate presentation has become a reality with Engel & Völkers Luxembourg!

Easy handling thanks to an innovative user interface

Property visits with Matterport 360° technologies allow users to make their own visit to their homes, according to their desires. For example, they can navigate through the different rooms themselves or follow a global visit itinerary. During the virtual tour, the strong points of the property as well as the salient features of the building are highlighted. In this way, users can discover, for example, what the floor covering looks like in the living room, or what appliances are installed in the kitchen... Thus, the details and strengths of the property are highlighted in order to give the customer an emotional and personal experience of the visit, which is a real asset from the first steps of selling a property.

The Matterport interface also offers different presentation options: The property can be explored from an internal point of view where the user navigates as if he was actually moving around the house, villa or apartment, by clicking with his mouse in the different rooms. The ergonomics here are comparable to the Google "Street View" service. VR (Virtual Reality) technologies demonstrate how forward-looking the Matterport concept is, as this technology offers great potential in the IT industry. The last of the three visualization modes is the "dollhouse" mode. From this perspective, the property for sale is presented in its entirety, like an open "doll's house", i.e. visible entirely without its roof. This view is particularly effective when it comes to getting an overview of the size and layout of a property. It is comparable to a 3D plan and allows to visualize in a global way the living space of the visited property.

3D Matterport visits:

Matterport, based in Sunnyvale, California, was founded in 2011 and is now established as one of the leading developers of 3D imaging using small-scale PTZ cameras. At Engel & Völkers Luxembourg, we use these cameras to create a virtual tour of your home. Each part is recorded and then converted into a digital viewing experience using Matterport software developed for this purpose. Thanks to Matterport, we are now able to offer you this impressive technology to improve the impact of your immovable portfolio.
