- Is this the Matterport Killer? iGUIDE vs Matterport!
Matterport vs. iGuide is a big subject, and I am often asked what the difference is between iGuide and Matterport, as well as what new technologies should we be on the lookout for. Well, a couple of months ago I posted this video about the new iGuide Planitar system and it has definitely been watched and commented on by many folks who find this topic as fascinating and controversial as I do! Take a look and let me know what you think, and if you bought an iGuide system and tried both I would love to hear your thoughts on using this vs. Matterport. We use both in our business and are not quite ready to roll-out iGuide to all of our photographers, but we do think it has filled a missing hole in the coverage that our team wanted and needed to have the widest variety of tools to handle any real estate virtual tour needs.

- The Open House may be headed for extinction!
The Globe and Mail (8 October 2021) The Open House may be headed for extinction A small portion from the article: To be sure, some agents never stopped doing open houses, maybe they just modified the usual rules for COVID-19 protections. But Mr. Kutyan and many agents like him have found that virtual tours – or 3-D guided tours – are more than sufficient to weed out the looky-loos from the potentially serious buyers and he still does individual in-person showings. The virtual tour is the key tool in this transition, and many of the companies that provide them have seen booming growth. Waterloo, Ont.-based Planitar Inc., makers of the iGuide measuring system and virtual tour platform, has seen its share of its home market nearly double. “iGuide is the market leader in Canada with about 12 per cent of the national market,” Alexander Likholyot, CEO of Planitar, said. “In 2019, we were probably around five or six per cent of the market. During COVID our growth rate doubled overnight.” Source: The Globe and Mail I encourage you to read the entire article. Tip: Statistics in this article may be helpful. Best,
- Interest in 3D tours explodes on Zillow, especially for rentalsWith in-person real estate activity
The number of virtual 3D tours being created on Zillow exploded last month and especially in the past week, according to the real estate listing portal and technology company. The increase comes at a time when many states are banning or severely limiting in-person real estate activity. “Now that most people are sheltering in place, one would expect the creation and engagement to rise dramatically,” Josh Weisberg, the vice president of rich media experiences at Zillow told Inman. “Sellers are uncomfortable with having a lot of people come into their home to stage and show a property. “The free 3D Home app allows sellers to create a tour and share it with their agent so the agent can continue to market the home to prospective buyers,” Weisberg added. “Landlords and property managers are in a similar situation — 3D Home helps them market their properties now so renters can continue to shop and are ready to move when things begin to return to normal.” For sale listings saw the smallest increase, but still a significant one. Last week, 192 percent more 3D tours were created, over the same week in February and in total, Zillow saw an 89 percent increase in the creation of 3D tours in March over February.

- Our latest iGUIDE of a 212 Hectare Farm close to Punta Del Este for Sale
Located in what many Uruguayans say is the "Tuscany" of Uruguay in the convenient department of Maldonado just 100 Km from Montevideo on a four-lane new divided highway and, and 40 minutes inland from the Atlantic Ocean at Punta Ballena from the beach. The farm is a short drive of about 35 minutes by car on Uruguay Ruta 12 from Punta del Este, a popular resort town with restaurants, hotels, shopping, hospitals, supermarkets, and services. Punta del Este has a very nice private airport that can handle almost all larger private jets. And importantly easily accessible on three of its four sides by paved road yet totally private. The total acreage is 212 hectares or 524 acres. The land consists of several padrones, all contiguous, surrounded on three of its four sides by a beautiful small river which transverses the land and is crossed with a new professionally designed, engineered, and architecturally built bridge which makes it possible for easy access to the whole farm not requiring travel on the road outside of the farm to move animals and equipment within the whole property. The current owner has not developed it for row cropping and high agricultural yields. Instead, he has maintained quality pastures and soil fertility for the maintenance of healthy animals. This has resulted in a nice property that has been free of chemical contamination for 8 years. Currently, the ranch is easily supporting 114 animals made up of Herford mama cows, heifers, 8 horses and pets of six llamas, 8 burrows, and two Jersey milk cows and their AI calves. These milk cows provide high-quality A2 milk which is much more healthy and non-allergenic. There has never been an approach to push the envelope on commercial production but more of a focus on lifestyle, quality healthy animals, and enjoyment. This is not to say that it is not a working ranch because it maintains upwards of over two hundred stock animals, over 40 others including about 40 laying hens, llamas, borrows, but fortunately they are all perfectly maintained by the amazingly talented husband and wife "caseros" who have lived there for over seven years and have been directly involved with the owners for 7.5 years. The husband has been directly involved with the many improvements over the last several years such a building several buildings, a "carniceria", storage buildings, working pens, an amazing large "galpone", all new fencing for the whole property, drilling new wells, planting fertilizing and maintaining all the advanced modern equipment not more than two years old. The new modern beautiful brick 3,500-3,700 plus sq ft home is only 10-12 years old and has been exquisitely maintained with four bedrooms, 3.5 full baths, and a guest powder room. The living room boasts a large and functional wood-burning fireplace with an unusually large insert imported from Spain that heats most of the house. In addition to the large open living and dining room with vaulted timber ceiling as is most of the house. There is an amazing outside patio "parilla" with custom new and a separate special pizza baking oven. All of the buildings are new and in excellent like-new condition and other than the owner’s home and "caseros" home have all be built but the present owners recently. The barn or "galpone" with an interior of 300 square meters is all finished with concrete, loft for storage, electric doors, and a two-car garage with electrically remote operated car doors on one end. It is a perfect facility for farm usage, fiestas, storage, gatherings, farm equipment, or whatever. In addition to its conventional spaces, the building boasts a kitchen, new tiled bath with cabinets, a bidet, and a full-sized shower.

- Tour of the month
This beautiful historical building in the center of Montevideo was originally built in 1914 by architect A.R. Campos and has been lovingly restored by its current owners about 10 years ago. It looks like something off a movie set and is a real treasure. In fact, it is often used for making movies. The house has three stories with a retail store on the ground level with its own entrance. A staircase is leading up to the first floor into the hall with amazing carvings on the high ceilings and tall doors leading into the different bedrooms and living room. There are 5 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms on this floor. On the second floor are the kitchen and laundry room and the exit door to a large roof terrace full of mature plants and comfortable outdoor seating areas. On the top floor is another en-suite bedroom with a dressing room. There would be room to add a kitchen on the main first floor if desired. The house is currently being used as a private residence but some bedrooms have been rented out and the current owner would be happy to share their extensive contact list with a new owner. The apartment is exquisitely renovated with items sourced locally and imported from abroad. There is a self-contained shop on the ground floor with its own entrance. The current tenant is a high-end picture framer, who is charming, super reliable, and has just renewed a five-year lease. The location is in Centro and neighbours include the Tile Museum and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Centro is not an area where you’ll find many expats but the current owners love it and feel very comfortable and safe there. They walk everywhere and have never felt the need for a car. Here is a link to the iGUIDE 3D Virtual Tour of this amazing property.
