Letting agent turned software developer Mark McCorrie has removed the need for estate agents to use floorplan software. Made Snappy 360* has developed a system to create floorplans with over 98% average accuracy using photographs from any 360 camera, driving down listing costs for agents at a time when costs are rising.
McCorrie believes that his innovation will make a dramatic cost difference for agents. “Made Snappy 360‘s ability to work with any 360 camera on the market makes our solution significantly more affordable than other offerings on the market, offering agents flexibility and avoiding lock into a specific proprietary camera manufacturer. Our camera packs start at £375 compared to many thousands of pounds when paying for 3D scanners through other providers”. As well as enhancing 2D photos, our clients get a virtual tour as part of their listing package when they create a floorplan.
The service uses mathematical formulas based on the height of the camera to calculate distances. It takes around ten minutes on-site to complete a three-bedroom house and his team do the rest, delivering a completed floorplan to clients the next working day. Clients also receive an own-branded virtual tour and enhancements to their 2D photos as part of the package.
Mark McCorrie, CEO Made Snappy Limited, got the highest score in the UK at A-level maths in 2012. After a career as a software developer in the aerospace industry, he launched his own letting agency, building up a portfolio of 140 tenancies in the Midlands. He founded Made Snappy 360 in 2018 originally as a virtual tours platform and his client base has grown to over 300 agents including many household names such as Hunters, Martin & Co, Pattinsons and Sothebys London.
McCorrie is passionate about virtual tours and rapid provision of floorplans “Our vision is for every property listing in the UK to contain a virtual tour. Just 12.2% of listings on Rightmove currently contain a virtual tour and it’s our mission to change that by making it easier and more cost effective for agents to create them”.
