Matterport vs. VPiX

Matterport is a good 3D camera system for many real estate applications. But it's not fast. You can't fully personalize the experience with a custom VR skin. The measurements are not accurate and you can't bring in 2D or 3D floor plans from other products like Autodesk 3DS Max or a 2D / 3D model created from another device like Occipital's 3D Structure Sensor and your iPad Pro.

Matterport won't let you edit a space by deleting a single panorama and inserting a new one. You pay to have the entire project redone including the 3D doll house.

VPiX SaaS is an open and powerful Content Management System (CMS) that lets you edit panoramas anytime you want. Delete one pano. Come back and add one more a month later. There's no extra cost.

Pricing for Matterport seems attractive until you start adding up the numbers. For 100 spaces (home listings) you are charged $49 per listing + $19 per floor plan. Matterport gives you 3 for free. When you total up the annual cost of 100 projects and floor plans you're paying $2,342. With VPiX, it's just $950 per year. That's a savings of over $1,300, which is just $9.50 per project.

VPiX lets you completely customize your listing with your company logo, phone number and links to your website and social media. You can use our new Apple OpenStreet maps theme and add local GPS push pins to local attractions around you.

PDF 360 Tour Brochure
In a recent study published by Coldwell Banker, 84% of home buyers reported seeing a virtual tour generated 403% more inquiries from prospective buyers than agents and brokers that just don't offer one.

75% of the real estate agents surveyed cited the added cost and time of producing a tour was the single largest barrier to buying expensive 360 camera rigs that were complicated and took too long to use.

3D cameras are over-hyped to help hide their complexity on purpose. Hidden costs of 3D map processing are downlayed. Full personalization by the end users is lacking. This results in a higher cost of total ownership, which results to frustration and abandonment.

A 2018 survey of 5,924 homebuyers and REALTOR (Buyers' agents) revealed that 3D maps were impressive. But next-time home buyers were not motivated by looking at furniture the current homeowner had in the 3D floor plan. Homebuyers were more motivated by viewing 360 walk-throughs of homes and preferred 2-dimensional floor plans.

Richard Noon, a luxury REALTOR at Keller Williams Realty in Dallas, said, "Using VPiX has allowed me to sell homes sight unseen."
