Whether you’re getting prepared to sell or are planning on buying a home in the near future, here are some technology startups that may be able to simplify your home purchase.
Making It Real With Matterport
Using Virtual Reality (VR) technology, Matterport is allowing interested homebuyers to view a home via 3D camera to determine if it is the right option for them. As founder Matt Bell says of many homebuyers, “Sometimes, they’re not able to visit the property in person, or if a couple is buying the property and only one person can fly out, the other can experience it remotely in VR and get a sense of what it’s like to really be in the space.”
