Idealista To Leverage Matterport Digital Twin Platform For Southern Europe’s Largest Real Estate Marketplace
The leading online real estate platform for Spain, Portugal and Italy extends multi-year agreement with Matterport to provide photo-realistic, 3D digital twins for market listings and co-develop innovative real estate solutions with Matterport SDK
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matterport, Inc. (Nasdaq: MTTR), today announced the continuation of its longstanding relationship with Idealista, Southern Europe’s largest online real estate marketplace, through a multi-year enterprise agreement with Matterport.
Idealista supports real estate agents and private individuals across Spain, Portugal and Italy by providing an online real estate classifieds platform to advertise property portfolios in some of the most densely populated regions in the world. As an online real estate marketplace, Idealista matches supply and demand of buyers and sellers to expedite property purchasing processes through a network of more than 50,000 real estate agencies for over 3 million property listings.
In residential real estate, 3D virtual tours have been proven to increase buyer interest in properties, helping homes sell faster. In a survey conducted by OnePoll in 2022, 33% of home buyers in the past two years bought their property sight unseen, while 62% of home buyers considered virtual tools an essential resource for future purchases1.
To meet this increasing consumer demand for digital real estate solutions, Idealista will not only use Matterport’s digital twins to continue providing 3D virtual tour capabilities of its listings, but also to co-develop new digital twin experiences for its customers using Matterport’s software development kit, which enables customers to build custom apps, capabilities and add ons that reimagine what a space can do to deliver even more value to users.
"Since Idealista was founded in 2000, we have always strived to offer the best technological developments that can facilitate processes for our users,” said Francisco Iñareta, Spokesperson, Idealista. “That's why our relationship with Matterport is strategic and a reference point for anyone looking for a new home. Both Matterport's team and its solutions are a perfect fit with Idealista's culture, which is why we couldn't be happier with this relationship between the two companies."
“Idealista and Matterport have long shared a vision for transforming the way people connect with potential homes,” said Natalie Lamb, Managing Director, EMEA, Matterport. “With Matterport, Idealista will continue to provide an unparalleled experience to explore real estate listings, and push the boundaries for what buyers, sellers and agents can come to expect from a digital real estate platform.”
