HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SCAN A SPACE?
On average, it takes about 45-60 minutes to scan 1,000 sq. ft., so a typical 2,000 sq. ft. home can be scanned in about 90-120 minutes.
CAN IMAGES BE EXTRACTED FROM THE 3D SHOWCASE?
Yes. These photos are in JPG format at 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. Photos can also be taken with a DSLR camera during the appointment.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE MY APPOINTMENT?
The space should be shoot-ready when we arrive. We want the 3D virtual tour of your space to be the best it can be. This requires teamwork and cooperation that will result in an outstanding online presence when your space goes live on the market.
HOW LONG IS MY 3D SHOWCASE HOSTED ONLINE?
The first 6 months of hosting is free and is only $10/month (charged on the 1st of each month) or $99/year after that. If multiple 3D Showcases will be hosted, please contact me for a quote.
HOW IS YOUR 3D VIRTUAL TOUR DIFFERENT THAN OTHER VIRTUAL TOURS?
A traditional virtual tour isn’t really virtual. It’s just a gallery of stationary panoramic photos. Although techniques vary, most traditional tours don’t allow the viewer to move around within the space. We call our 3D virtual tour a 3D Showcase because it also includes the “Floor Plan View” and the “Dollhouse View” to allow the viewer to conceptualize the space.
HOW LARGE OF A SPACE CAN BE SCANNED?
For residential properties, this can be up to 15,000 sq. ft. depending on layout and specific details of the space. Please contact us for spaces exceeding 15,000 sq. ft. to determine if they are feasible.
IS SPECIAL LIGHTING REQUIRED?
x Because the 3D camera uses HDR (High dynamic range) photography to balance dark and light areas of an image, no special lighting or lighting equipment is required.
CAN YOU SCAN OUTDOORS?
Scanning external spaces such as gardens, decks and patios are certainly possible.
