Boston Short Term Rentals
Last Thursday I went over to Charlestown to scan some short term rentals with my Matterport Camera. My friends over at www.shorttermrentalsboston.com decided to test it out on their latest addition to their portfolio on Mount Vernon Street. In this type of business, rentals are likely to be booked “sight unseen” and this is a perfect opportunity for renters to really check out the place they are about to rent. Go explore the 3 listings below and click on the links for pricing and booking information. click on the 3D showcase button to view floorplans,”dollhouse view” and walkthrough tour.

I recently did a Matterport 3D Showcase of a great new office rental space in the Back Bay. The company is Snap Suites and they rent office space for 1 year terms. I did a scan of a furnished office as well as their common areas, kitchen and lounge. This is just a portion of the space, but it gives a quick idea of the added amenities of the complex. If anyone is looking for an office in the heart of Back Bay, you should definitely check it out. I will have still photos of conference rooms and lobby for another post.
Check out the 3D player below.
We recently got our Matterport Camera a few months ago and I am amazed with the product and the final images it produces. This camera takes 360 degree images and turns them into an immersive 3D rendering of interior spaces. Personally, I am not a fan of traditional virtual tours, where you click on a room and just spin in circles and look up and down. This technology is more of a “google street view” for interiors. you can actually “walk around” and explore the home without even physically going there. it also allows you to rotate the entire floor-plan and view the home in the “dollhouse view” where you can figure out the flow and the layout while having the option to go back to a particular room by clicking on the space. it’s quite amazing and this is definitely the future of real estate marketing.
You can view 3D showcases here on my Facebook page Property Imaging and also on my photography website www.briggsjohnsonphotography.com
Other features include: creating screen shots, actual photos of floor plans as well as measuring spaces and creating images with dimensions. The technology is only getting better and new optoins will roll out over time. Exciting stuff!!
Here are a few screen shots of properties taken from the “3D showcase.”

Here is the latest 3D model of “The Royal,” which is one of the latest new construction developments in the South End. It actually is all officially under agreement with occupancy starting very soon. Check out some screen shots and explore the model via the Matterport 3D showcase below.

So I finally got to try out my new Matterport camera yesterday on my listing over at 2 Lyndeboro Place in Bay Village. I will get into more detail about the camera and the process in another post, but I wanted to share my first attempt to use it. I think the product is awesome, the outcome is sweet, and the technology is getting better as each month rolls along. I still have to learn a few things in the back end, but this is the basic function of the camera. There are going to be many more features within the next year and I can’t wait to see how this technology evolves. Click on the Blue bar below then “walk around” the property or click on the “dollhouse” view to rotate the house and click on the room to re-enter the space. Let me know what you think!!
If you have any questions about the property or the 3D scan. contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
PS. I believe you need to have the latest version of ios 8 and upload the player to view. I will do some investigating on that.
