While not yet available in San Francisco but coming soon, Redfin has started rolling out interactive 3D tours of homes listed by the brokerage in Seattle. Powered by Matterport, the virtual walkthroughs are akin to “Google Street View, but for inside the home.”
For an example of the Redfin 3D Walkthrough in action, see the listing for 5310 90th Avenue SE on Mercer Island, a listing for which the list price was just reduced by $100,000 (6 percent).
Other companies are working to commercialize the technology as well and the relationship between Redfin and Matterport is not exclusive. In fact, you can buy a Matterport Pro 3D camera for $4,500.
