Matterport Partnership with roOomy Accelerates Real Estate Transactions, Opens Up New Revenue Opportunities for Retailers

Virtually staged 3D experiences unlock new benefits for businesses and consumers alike

Matterport, the spatial data company leading the digital transformation of the built world, today announced its continued partnership with roOomy to provide virtual staging capabilities to residential and multifamily real estate customers. Potential buyers and renters can view staged properties and more deeply understand and visualize the potential for spaces 100% virtually, anytime from any device. Now, they can decide whether listings are right for them without in-person viewings, enabling the industry to thrive under social distancing restrictions. Consumers can also search for, decide on, and buy furnishings for their property within the Matterport digital twin.

“Virtual staging is one of the key services our customers consistently request. Our partnership with roOomy provides real estate professionals, home buyers or renters, and retailers with completely new ways to promote, choose, and furnish the homes they want to live in,” said Jay Remley, Chief Revenue Officer of Matterport.

Together, Matterport and roOomy bring tangible benefits to agents and property managers. According to industry research, vacant homes sell for over $11,000 less and spend six more days on the market. Many agents and real estate managers have already leveraged virtual staging as an easy alternative to physical staging. Agents shorten days-on-market for listings and multifamily property managers give people the opportunity to decide on flooring and other upgrades.

“We have been investigating how to improve our efficiency by moving from ‘live’ to ‘virtual’ staging. We started with Matterport over three years ago and have broadened our reach by attracting clients that are tech savvy. roOomy virtual staging adds another level of sophistication, allowing clients to imagine how their furniture might look in our apartments which saves us a tremendous amount of time,” said Brittany Kate Gvazdinskas, COO, Safe Harbor Properties.

Retailers are also realizing significant benefits using 3D digital twins in place of 2D photography. A survey conducted by roOomy revealed that people moving into new homes spend five times more on furnishings. However, 65% said that buying new furniture at once, shopping for pieces to design their space, and finding furnishings to match their existing furniture were top pain points. As a result, major home furnishing brands are responding by offering consumers the opportunity to make purchases directly within the virtual staging platform.

“Virtual staging is truly driving the connection between retail and real estate,” said Pieter Aarts, Co-Founder of roOomy. “Our partnership with Matterport delivers a dynamic experience for viewing properties and home interiors.”

To order a virtually staged Matterport 3D tour, customers simply share a copy of the Matterport model to be staged with roOomy, select a design style, and place their order here. Once virtual staging is complete, the customer receives panorama proofs for approval before the final high-resolution tour is prepared and shared.
