What do I need to do before the appointment?
Because 3D virtual tours capture every angle and dimension of the property, the entire space needs to be in good photographic condition before the appointment. So it is vital that all spaces are clean, furniture and decor are arranged to your liking and lighting and window fixtures are in working condition. This will allow for a smooth and uninterrupted photographic session.
What do I do during the appointment?
The more people that are in the property during the shoot, the less successfull it usually is as it can slow down the shooting process and they can potentially show up in the virtual tour. So please invite property owners, guests and any pets to be absent during the appointment, which will enable the photo shoot to go smoothly and uninterrupted. Lock-box codes and keys should be provided before or on the day of the appointment.
Does weather play an important part during the shoot?
Our 3D cameras use a High-Dynamic Imaging which allow for the camera to adjust to any light changes that may accur. Interior lighting is also important to have within the space, which adds to the quality of the final product.
Are there any Cancellation fees?
We do understand that co-ordinating of various people, services ( homeowner, cleaner, painter, landscaper etc) can be sometime complex and we strive to be as flexible as possible, but we do ask to be notified of any cancellation, at least 24 hours prior to the appointment inorder to avoid a cancellation fee of $50.
What is your Turnaround Time?
It is typically 1-3 days (excluding Sundays) depending on the size of the property. Floor Plans will be ready within 3 business days.
How long does a typical scan take?
On average it takes about 45 minutes to scan 1,000sf (93 meters squared). So a typical 2,000sf space can be scanned in about 60 to 90 minutes.
