Scanning an interior is like taking a single photo of the entire place very slowly. It takes about 1 hour per 1000 Sq Ft.
A space should be set up exactly as you want it shown and needs to remain that way throughout the entire process.
The camera spins 360° and will capture every detail. Nothing can be edited out but unnecessary places can be closed off and labeled.
Movement and direct sunlight can will cause issues with the scan. Appointments are best during consistent weather and when the least amount of people will be around.
Outdoor spaces can be scanned but are shown as separate 360° photos detached from the main interior model.
For Real Estate listings I charge based off the total square footage the house is listed for.
The first 2500 Sq. Ft. or less cost a flat $200
For properties larger than 2500 Sq. Ft. there is a
$0.10 per remaining Sq. Ft.
Additional outdoor scans are $5 each.
Floor plans can be created through Matterport for an additional $15
If your location is not a Real Estate listing, costs can vary.
