Zillow App Debuts AI-Powered 3D Home Tours Across Canada
Zillow 3D Home, an AI-powered mobile platform for iPhones and iPads that allows anyone to capture 360-degree panoramic photos of a home and easily create a 3D tour for free, has today announced the launch of its immersive virtual home tours across the U.S. and Canada.
According to the 2018 Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends Report, over 45% of Gen Z and 41% of Millennial buyers find 3D tours or recorded video of a home very or extremely important in helping them decide on their home.
Using 3D Home, agents can quickly and easily add tours to any listing without any cost or hosting fees. Real estate professionals can capture an entire house in as little as 15-20 minutes, helping them serve more clients at a lower cost:
“Making 3D home tours available for sellers and agents to capture and add to any listing, for free, in the U.S. and Canada is a huge milestone in our work to make the real estate transaction a more seamless, on-demand experience for consumers,” said Josh Weisberg, Zillow’s Senior Director of Product Development, 3D and Computer Vision. “Previously, 3D tours were only found on high-end or expensive homes, due to the high cost and time-intensive capture process. Now with 3D Home, adding an immersive experience to a home listing is fast, easy, and free, which benefits buyers and sellers at all price points.”
The Zillow 3D Home app works by capturing 360-degree panoramic images, using either the iPhone’s camera or a 360-degree Ricoh Theta V or Z1 camera that integrates with the app. Once the entire house has been shot and photos are uploaded to Zillow, the app stitches them together to create seamless 3D tours.
You can grab the app for free using the following App Store link.
