The Room Scan APP Draws Plans By Itself. We needed it!
Marta, a real estate agent from Lima, has acquired a real estate app that designs a house plan for her in less than 30 minutes. A plan that once presented to the owner helps him to attract better clients in the Miraflores area, where he works.
Yesterday he sent me an example of what you can achieve with this real estate app and the truth is that the map in PDF is very well done. Presenting a plan of a 2nd occupancy home to a potential buyer is not common and sets you apart from the competition.
Imagine presenting to a client the data of the house in which they have been interested, together with a scale plan , with photographs and with an explanatory video of about 2 minutes. The client may not end up buying that home, but it is very likely that the real estate agent’s service will not go unnoticed by the client and they will be inclined to ask you to help them find the home they are looking for.
Marta tells me that clients appreciate the delivery of a house plan and that she has already managed to surprise (and attract) 2 new clients using this real estate app. Clients who had contacted her through an ad on GoogleAds and who later preferred that she find them a specific apartment in the Miraflores area.
The RoomScan Real Estate App 4.18.
Sometimes you come across mobile applications that are to remove your hat and this real estate app is one of them.
This app measures the shape and size of any room, calculating the dimensions and shape of any room simply by moving your mobile from wall to wall. The simple version is free, but it is worth paying $ 4.99 to have the professional version to know the measurements of each room.
The software uses the phone’s gyroscope to interpret the angle and position of each wall, and then extrapolate the results to close out a fairly accurate map of the room. The paid version gives an accuracy of millimeters. It’s not bad at all!
To use the real estate app correctly, you have to keep your iPhone still and safe by supporting it against each wall perpendicular to the ground. A sound or bleep tells you when the app has taken the measurement and the scan from that wall to move on to the next one.
To successfully scan a whole room you must scan the walls in order and then scan the first 2 again so that the real estate app can create the floor plan. For example, if a room has: Wall A, Wall B, Wall C, and Wall D, the realtor will need to scan walls A, B, C, D, A (again) and B (again).
More Features of the Real Estate App.
On the other hand, this real estate app allows you, among other functionalities:
Enter measurements by hand on the plan.
Position doors and windows.
Add rooms without analysis,
Highlight walls with a color,
Add notes and photo gallery,
Add the position of doors and windows
Change the measurements in which you want the plan, (meters, feet, etc.)
Measure the size of each wall and the area of the room.
Export the drawing to a PDF or DXF file for Auto CAD or SketchUp
And that’s not all. This real estate app asks the user for the name and address of the property. If you have the location of your iPhone set, it is activated and the information is filled in automatically. In Tajarat properties you can name the room that you are about to measure and indicate what floor it is on.
Once the plan is finished, you can save it as a room, group the plans by rooms within a folder, (= house), or send it by email to whoever you want.
As you can see, a real estate app that will help you better present any property to your potential clients. The best thing about this app is that it creates a plan of the house that you can export to PDF in less than 30 minutes with all the corresponding measurements.
I remember when I measured the rooms with a laser tip and worked with software to create a plan of the house. Sure! At that time there was no such real estate app and we had to use our imagination to present clients with the best possible information.
It is not surprising that Marta sets herself apart from her competition by presenting clients with a floor plan that is not expected and is always welcome. It shows that the real estate agent has bothered to provide the best information and this affects the perception that clients have of you as a professional.
“Google Display for Realtors. Do you know how to use it?”
Advertising on Google Display is, today, one of the most profitable advertisements for real estate agents. In addition to being much cheaper than Google Adwords Search advertising, this type of advertising generates more and better requests for information than investing in Google text ads.
Why is this advertising so profitable? Because only a small, small percentage of real estate agencies use this option to promote their properties and if you choose the option of “locations” instead of “keywords” you will reach a well-defined audience in portals and classifieds. Sometimes you join your competition more direct.
Some real estate agencies tell me that Google Display advertising doesn’t work in real estate. However, my students are surprised by the results they get with their advertising on Google Display.
They are paying an average of 0.05 cents for each click. But best of all, these clicks are really good. Around 75% of these clicks are from interested customers. With their campaigns on Google Display, my students are getting between 10 and 25 requests for information per month, which guarantees them 1 to 2 monthly sales.
Google Display: How to Create a Campaign.
Watch this video where I explain a little more how you can prepare a Google Display Ads campaign.
Showing them how to create a campaign for Google Display is not complicated at all. However, it would take you between forty-five minutes to an hour to explain in detail how to create a specific Google Display campaign for a real estate agent.
In order for you to obtain the maximum profitability, it is necessary to explain how to design an ad for Google Display, which sizes work best and where / what kind of advertising has already been tested that works best for a real estate agent / or how to get a cost per click of 0 .05 cents or less.
The best way to understand how to prepare a Campaign for Google Display is to access one of my online courses and see how I personally configure and create a Google Display campaign so that it will surely generate between 7 -14 clients in the next 30 days .

Google Display: The 3 Keys to Create an Effective Campaign.
First. You have to create 2-3 similar campaigns with a different ad size for each campaign. These are the campaigns that work best, because that way you get your ad to always appear where you want it. With 2 or 3 different sizes you are giving Google more facilities to show your ad more frequently in the chosen places.
You just have to invest 5-10 dollars a day per campaign and place a bid between 5 and 10 cents on the dollar. You don’t need more.
The second key is to prepare Google Display ads with an excellent design. Gooogle allows you to create your own designs while you make the ad, but better uinvest in creativity.
Your ads will appear in places where your potential clients are, clients looking to buy or sell a property now / and it is proven that well-designed Display ads give better results. If you have the budget to design dynamic display ads, all the better. I recommend this to real estate developers when launching their new development.
And the third key for your Display ads to reach precisely the people who are looking for a property now in your area is to select the LOCATION option when you configure your ads.
The location option allows you to tell Google which websites you want your ads to appear on. This is extremely important,
Google Display is Incredibly Cheap.
While some real estate agents spend $ 500- $ 800 a month promoting their properties on some real estate portals, some of my students only invest $ 50 to $ 100 a month and appear on almost all real estate portals in their country that support AdSense.
This is so, because they tell Google which websites they want their ads to appear on.
Surprised? Well, there is more, because you can also ask Google to show your ads in the Gmail emails of people who enter certain keywords in their emails. Or that you want to appear in the online version of your city’s newspaper.
Google Display is really a gold mine to attract clients and properties to blue world city islamabad if you learn how to configure your campaigns.
“Remember, by selecting the Location option, you can select the websites where your ads appear.”
In the Online Recruitment Strategies course , I explain in detail how to configure a campaign for Google Display . Likewise, in the course I also explain more than 10 ways to attract customers and properties online using different media such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Bing or Yahoo.
