The Top Reasons Why Companies Use
CubiCasa instead of SmartDraw

Reason #1

No need to draw or be an expert in creating floor plans

SmartDraw is a ”DIY” floor plan software that runs on Mac and Windows. To create a floor plan with Smartdraw, you will need to draw it from scratch or edit one of the available templates. While It might be a helpful tool for architects or contractors, its use could be challenging for real estate photographers and other real estate professionals: creating floor plans with web-based software might take longer and reduce productivity on the go compared to using a floor plan creator app on mobile.

The best part about CubiCasa is that you don’t need any prior experience or drawing skills to be able to generate professional floor plans – just 5 minutes of your time and a smartphone. By simply walking through the property and scanning the interior space with your phone camera, you’ll receive a professional floor plan complete with Gross Living Area (GLA) that follows ANSI standards within 24 hours or in 6 hours if you select rush order. No drawing or editing is needed. 

You will be able to download your CubiCasa 2D floor plans in a variety of formats including JPG, PNG, and SVG. You can even make advanced edits to the SVG floor plan in any vector graphics editor such as Adobe Illustrator.

Reason #2

No subscription is needed, pay-as-you-go with a free trial

SmartDraw pricing begins with a $119.4 yearly subscription for single users and they offer a discounted price per user for teams of 5 or larger. While subscription-based pricing could be convenient for some users, for newcomers or real estate professionals who might need the service only occasionally it probably won’t be the right investment to start off with an annual subscription.

With CubiCasa you are free to choose among two cost-effective, fixed price options: “Base floor plan” designed for appraisals ($22.99/scan) or “Plus floor plan” ($29.99/scan) designed for real estate listings. Simple as that. You decide when and how often to scan based on your needs, you don’t have to start/renew any subscription. And the first scan is free! 

 

Reason #3

Easy-to-use, no need to use a computer for creating floor plans

With SmartDraw, you can create highly detailed floor plans, but you will always need to bring your computer with you. We, at CubiCasa, understand that for real estate professionals it’s crucial to get work done efficiently and hassle-free while in the field. That is why a floor plan creator app could be the best solution to increase your productivity on the go and make the most out of your on-site visit to the property.  All you need is in your pocket: your mobile phone is the perfect indoor scanner. It takes only 5-6 minutes of scanning with your phone while walking around the space, and CubiCasa’s technology will sense each room’s dimensions and render a professional and customizable floor plan. Without sketching or editing the app will include in the floor plan everything you need to really understand the property: area and interior walls, stairs, door opening, and, if requested, even all fixed furniture – perfect for listings. You won’t even need to move furniture out of the way! 

On the other hand, with SmartDraw, you will have to dedicate much more time and effort to this task: adding walls, windows, and doors, stamping furniture, appliances, and fixtures, finalizing your project – everything using your computer.

"While in most programs you have to scan each room, click at each wall, add doors, windows and openings, etc. I love that CubiCasa does all of that for you in one single scan!"
