Key quote:

Younger generations, including millennial (41%) and Gen Z (45%) buyers have used 3D tours or recorded video of a home to help them decide on their home, according to the 2018 Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends Report. Zillow projected this trend to rise, since these generations constitute the biggest group of first-time home buyers.

Is the 3D tour a model like Cupix/Matterport?

Is it a model like the one below?

Are the THETA images used in the model?

In the example here, I see the use of the 360 images in a tour, but wanted to confirm that the RICOH THETA images are also used to build the model.

The Zillow example, it looks like it’s a standard 360 image tour?
