CLARKSVILLE, Md.—The Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate now offers new 3-D modeling technology to provide virtual walkthroughs and 360-degree interior views of listings on the team’s website at www.northropteam.com.
The 3-D walkthroughs allow potential homebuyers to manipulate 3-D models of home interiors, virtually move through rooms and hallways and spin views 360 degrees at points throughout the home (3-D walkthrough example).
“The interactive, realistic experience allows potential buyers to immerse themselves virtually and walk through any property from anywhere in the world on their desktop or mobile devices,” said Creig Northrop, president and CEO of the Northrop Team.
The 3-D home models are captured by special cameras, powered by Matterport technology, that rotate 360 degrees and are placed in multiple locations in every room in the home. Sensors capture the look and scope of the space while calculating dimensions in order to render complete 3-D models.
“This type of tour is unlike any other virtual tour of a home because it’s fully immersive. It brings the listings to life benefitting both buyers and sellers whose homes can be toured 24 hours a day at no inconvenience to them,” Northrop said. “The Northrop Team is proud to be at the forefront in utilizing this new technology.”
