PowerCAD SiteMaster Drives Next Generation of Virtual Tours in Residential Real Estate

VASHON, WASHINGTON AND CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Feb 07, 2007 -- John L. Scott Real Estate Agent, J.R. Crawford, and FKR Tours are closing more sales "sight unseen" and reducing days on market with the next generation of residential virtual tours using state of the art technology from GiveMePower Corporation (OTCBB: GMPW).

J.R. Crawford of John L. Scott Real Estate in Vashon, Washington, is the first residential realtor in North America to deploy the next generation of interactive virtual tours and see the true impact it is having on the real estate marketplace and her own business.

The tremendous confidence buyers get through this type of interaction has lead to an increase in purchases "sight unseen" from across the country, and the globe. Buyers know in advance that their furniture will fit in the desired space, and exactly what remodeling, if any, they want to have done even before they move in. In fact, Crawford has also overseen renovations for an international client as an extended application to the new virtual tours.

Now, attracting buyers from as far as Hong Kong, Crawford's sales cycle has accelerated, given that buyers are able to virtually interact with the home, gain context and orientation of the space via the accurate floor plan, and develop a positive emotional relationship with the home even before she is contacted.

Fast becoming the best-of-breed model across North America, the new residential virtual tours relies extensively on FKR Tours' use of PowerCAD SiteMaster to produce nearly 100% accurate floor plans with directional photos embedded right in the CAD file. The result is an exact replica of the home enriched by high resolution photos that allow buyers to zoom-in to the level of seeing the actual grains of wood on cabinetry.

"My clients deserve the very best of what I can give them," stated Crawford. "The new virtual tours allow my client's entire property to shine in a way that was not possible before, and PowerCAD SiteMaster is the only reason I can do this."

Wanting a competitive edge for her clients beyond the traditional photo slide show or invasive mounted video cameras, Crawford was alerted to using PowerCAD SiteMaster as the key for the next generation of virtual tours by Steve Amos of FKR Tours.

A building survey and multi-media veteran, Amos had recently purchased PowerCAD SiteMaster to streamline and simplify a previously frustrating and arduous manual process of developing residential floor plans with a tape measure and paper.

"PowerCAD SiteMaster has allowed me to take virtual tours to the next level," claimed Amos, president of FKR Tours in Vashon, Washington. "There is no other program that combines the level of intuitiveness, detail and precision captured by SiteMaster with the ease of use and speed of production. If it hadn't been for SiteMaster, I would have gotten out of the business. It makes that much difference."

PowerCAD SiteMaster is part of GiveMePower's unique family of CAD Anywhere™ 2D and 3D design, viewing and mobile/wireless collaboration solutions - each designed to save time and money in the office, in the field or on the shop floor.

    Technology seems very interesting. I have seen something similar few years back where an online user gets a 360 degree view of a room as if she is in the house. The link to a virtual tour takes one to a schematic show with “onmouseover” command that displays images taken at a property. From experience it would seem like PowerCAD can take it one step forward and make it a 3D tour in the future.
