For Vacation Rentals
The vacation rental market is saturated and competitive. What are you doing to make your properties stand out above the rest? Photos and a written description just don't make the cut for a high-quality listing anymore. Many vacation rental companies look to CartoBlue to provide them with an extra marketing edge. Digital floor plans, community maps, and renderings from CartoBlue raise interaction on vacation rental websites, increase conversions, and ultimately lead to more phone calls and online bookings.
Vacation rental companies can also sync their CartoBlue products with an API or PMS such as V.12 or Streamline. CartoBlue products are programmed to automatically refresh when a change is made in the synced API or PMS. This makes it incredibly easy for large vacation rental companies to manage hundreds of properties on their maps. Maps, floor plans, and renderings from CartoBlue give potential guests the ability to see the vacation rentals as part of a larger community, and not just as a house on the street. As a vacation rental company, you can use CartoBlue's maps to show guests what their rental is near to, use floor plans to show them the layout photographs can't communicate, and use renderings to market a home still under construction.
Vacation Rental Maps
Area maps are similar to the community maps CartoBlue also offers, but area maps can portray larger geographies and more detail. Use an area map to illustrate a city and give your guests a wider perspective of your vacation rental location. When customers can view a location in a large-scale way they have more confidence to book the property. Our area maps give vacationers who haven't rented with you before a larger picture to familiarize them with the area's best features. Once they can visualize the great experience they'll have in the area, they're as good as sold. Vacation rental companies can also sync the maps with their API or PMS to show the geographic location of all their vacation homes. The maps are programmed to automatically refresh when a location is added to the synced API or PMS. This makes it incredibly easy for large companies to manage hundreds of properties on their area map.
Cartovision - 3D VR Tours
CartoVision is a professional virtual tour product that creates 360-degree walking tours of any interior/exterior space. CartoVision tours allow viewers to take a virtual, self-guided, room-by-room tour of the entire property from any device. For an even more immersive experience, viewers can use their smart phone with Samsung Gear VR or Google Cardboard and step into virtual reality to view the property as if they were actually inside of it.
Floor plans communicate essential information about your vacation rental to potential guests about layout and accessibility. Knowing the arrangement of bedrooms and living spaces is important for travelers with children or large parties who'd like to designate sleeping arrangements before arriving. Your vacation rental website will see more online user activity with the addition of interactive floor plans.
3D Floor Plans
Three-dimensional floor plans are one of the most popular tools CartoBlue offers. For vacation rental clients on a budget, multi-floor 3D floorplans are a less expensive option. They give the client the option to display multiple floors in one image rather than purchasing a separate 3D floor plan for each story. Whether the client chooses a single-floor or multi-floor 3D floor plan, they can customize every feature such as colors, level of detail, landscaping, and furniture placement. Not only is the floor plan customizable but the finished product can be embedded directly into your site or linked to using the unique URL provided to you by CartoBlue.
When you're ready to list a new vacation rental on your Web site or booking site, but the property is still under construction, what do you do? Without photos, creating a lead-generating listing may seem impossible, but it's not! You can use CartoBlue's pre-build renderings. Pre-build renderings illustrate the complete picture of a property while it's still undergoing construction. Add the renderings to your web listings to get a jump start on bookings. Pre-build renderings allow you to attract new guests while new construction or remodeling takes place. Guests will be able to visualize the décor, layout, and overall feel of the property displayed through the renderings. Photo-realistic imaging even highlights the real view from the property as seen from inside, which is ideal for water-view or mountain-view vacation rentals.
