The real estate industry is set to benefit from a new, efficient way to digitally capture the layout and information about a property. A recent survey from the National Association of Realtors shows that the top three most important features of a listing for buyers are photography, detailed information, and a floor plan. According to Zillow, a floor plan is the 2nd most important feature on a listing and correlates highly with capturing potential leads. Traditional methods of capturing details about a listing and drafting a floor plan are slow and expensive.
PropTech provider CubiCasa has introduced an innovative new technology that enables real estate professionals to capture details and a detailed floor plan of a property by simply taking a video on a mobile phone. The CubiCasa App  usually takes just 5 minutes and makes capturing using video easy and intuitive, with a home report and floor plan delivered within one business day.
