"Inaccurate or inadequate photos of properties has inspired some companies to use virtual reality (VR) to transform viewings.

Matterport, an immersive media technology company, has created a camera that automates the creation of digital 3D models and produces VR experiences, floorplans and ultra high definition photography.
It has changed the way in which properties are marketed, improving the speed and quality of the buying and selling process.

“Potential buyers can view properties in true-to-life definition through VR or online tours – virtually walking through 50 properties in the time that it would take to visit one," says co-founder, Matt Bell, who adds that it saves customers the time and money spent on travelling to unsuitable properties, while speeding up the viewing process and leading to quicker sales".
