Matterport 3D Showcase

Niche Communications are excited to announce the introduction of the next generation immersive media for the property industry, the Matterport 3D Showcase.

A completely new form of immersive 3D media that invites you to explore a place as if you were really there and offer a total sense of how a home fits together.

The Matterport Pro 3D Camera is a next generation device that captures colour and depth. Leveraging cutting-edge technology and powerful cloud processing to quickly make immersive digital experiences out of real-world environments.

Using the proprietary Dollhouse View and a Floor Plan view the 3D Showcase easily allow the viewer to navigate their way entirely through a property, using only their mouse, keyboard or finger on smartphones and tablets.

Photo galleries, 360° panoramas, and fly-through videos can lack the perspective and feel that home buyers and sellers crave. The 3D Showcase uses the very latest technology to capture fully responsive property tours that work seamlessly on mobiles, tablets and computers with load times rendering very quickly.

Niche Communications Photography

Photography

Many vendors comment on the quality of the photographs that we provide, comparing them to the images that were supplied when they first bought their home. Whilst our high spec camera equipment plays a part in the results we achieve, it is more about composition,lighting and most importantly an eye for detail.

We believe that every property brought to the market irrespective of size or price should be showcased to its full potential. Our photographers pride themselves in finding creative ways to ensure that this is achieved. Ordered in conjunction with a Brochure, EPC and/or Floor plan a set of professional photos can be extremely cost effective.

We have also invested heavily in elevated photography equipment enabling us to offer beautifully constructed elevated photographs of buildings and land in most of our operating territories.

Floorplans

Niche Communications have been market leaders in providing professional floor plans for over 20 years.

Driven by the visual nature of the internet we have seen floor plans become an essential aid to the selling of properties. Vendors are becoming far more educated in terms of how they would like their property marketed. Providing a first class marketing package allows agents to retain higher fees despite a challenging market environment, whilst assuring the vendor they are getting value for money and the best possible service.

Not all floor plans are the same. We provide fully insured RICS compliant floor plans with full dimensions and room names. Our floor plans are supplied in any required format to achieve optimum web and print viewable quality.

Our experience within the industry ensures a wealth of knowledge from our 70 people ‘out on the road’ to our skilled floor plan CAD technicians. We also use state of the art technology which allows us to provide a first proof of your floor plan within an hour of leaving the property.

Niche Communications Energy Performance Certificates

EPC's

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Most homes bought, sold or rented in the UK require an EPC. Click here to see a list of buildings that don’t need an EPC.

An EPC contains:
• Information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs
• Recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money

An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and it is valid for 10 years.

We have the largest employed resource of Domestic Energy Assessors in the UK and we can service virtually the whole country. Energy Performance Certificates (EPC’s) can be ordered separately or as part of a package that can include floor plans and a range of photography options.

Inventories

Using the latest iPad application technology which combines traditional data capture techniques with a sophisticated back-end IT solution our team of employed fully trained Inventory Assessors ensure that your reports are available through our online tracking system within 24 hours of their visit. Our reports are of the very highest quality: detailed, arranged in table format, making them straight forward and easy to understand.

Digital images are supplied at no extra cost, providing a visual record as well as the detailed written account. Every one of our Assessors has to have completed an exclusive and rigorous training programme (including several supervised inventories) before producing their first report. We strive to provide our clients with an efficient, reliable and professional service.

Under new legislation, tenants’ deposits should be protected by a regulated agent and disputes about their return will be resolved swiftly, inexpensively and impartially. However, to reach a resolution, one must have an independent inventory in place.

We hold the necessary professional indemnity and public liability insurance, providing our clients with complete peace of mind.

what our clients say

"I have worked with Niche Communications for over 15 years, during which time they have grown to be a substantial organisation. They have never lost sight of the extreme importance of customer care and contact and their passion for positive immediate action if anything goes wrong (which it does from time to time as life is not perfect) is thoroughly refreshing.

They always act swiftly to establish the cause of the problem and put it right. They do not seek to apportion blame or make it difficult for us. Without drama they put the issue right and we move on."
