For the people who call Nelson B.C. home or want to make the area their home, life is safe, unspoiled and serene.

The heritage capital of British Columbia is becoming of this gem nestled on the shores of magnificent Kootenay Lake, framed by steep mountain slopes where the four seasons unfold in an ever-changing panorama of beauty; which makes this diverse community and the abundance of mountain culture the place to be if you have a passion for the outdoors and a love to ski, snowboard, mountain bike, hike, camp, fish or to just simply be — close to nature.

It’s worth noting that if outdoor recreation isn’t your jam, Nelson has also made a name for itself as one of the preeminent arts and culture hubs of British Columbia, offering up big-city quality with small town flavour. The Queen City is a gateway to iconoclastic and inventive creatives, designers and internationally recognized festivals.

And while Nelson may punch well above its weight when it comes to the arts, it is the unique pioneering spirit, which constantly pushes boundaries in inventive and compelling ways that shape this very eclectic community and visitor experience.

Having all the urban amenities and style that you will find in a big city centre, such as great restaurants and architecture, world-class entertainment, amazing seasonal recreational lifestyle offerings, and its unique culture makes the community especially attractive for young and old alike.

Turn-of-the-century ambiance lingers in every corner from the 350 preserved heritage buildings to the fully restored streetcar, and Coldwell Banker Rosling Real Estate is the brokerage house for anyone thinking of buying or selling real estate in Nelson, Trail, Nakusp, Kaslo, Slocan Valley, or Kootenay, Slocan and Arrow Lakes.

In a competitive Real Estate market and landscape like Nelson B.C., innovation is key to standing out, and that’s why Coldwell Banker Rosling Real Estate recently adopted to use Matterport camera systems giving them the ability to showcase their offerings on a more virtual platform.

Not only has their Matterport been an incredible tool for them, they have had a number of deals put together based on buyers only viewing the house via a 3D tour                         

“We have yet to have someone finally see their home and be surprised or disappointed. It is so nice for a buyer who is not physically here to be able to walk through a house before deciding to make the trip or not.” Shares owner/realtor Kevin Arcuri.

“With COVID this year it was an even more valuable tool. We were able to have tours of tenanted properties that could not even be viewed until they were under offer so potential buyers could see rental properties. Even with owner occupied houses we asked that any interested people please be sure to go through the 3D tour before moving forward. This helped weed out unnecessary showings.”

The Matterport cameras can capture and scan any space, from a small room in a home or an entire office building, with the Matterport Capture app. The accurate 3D results help to make the most of the space's potential, you automatically get stunning image quality and a suite of assets to work with.

The technology process utilizes a Cortex AI platform with a deep learning neural network that creates a 3D digital twin and automates many of the things you would normally have to do manually. It can identify objects within rooms, stitch all of the scans together, and reconstructs the space into an experience anyone can view. The Cortex platform can even convert 2D imagery and panoramas into full 3D visualizations.

Though there is more to Matterport than just 3D tours.

Matterport not only enhances your home or property listing, it makes doing so much easier with a solution that creates assets for you automatically. You are able to generate 3D virtual tours, 4K print-quality photos, schematic floor plans, and guided video tours that are easily shared on social media sites, such as Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. You can also publish to Google Street View, VRBO, and Realtor.ca, embed the 3D space on to any website, and create accurate measurements within the space to help manage virtual staging.

“When it comes to Real Estate here in the Kootenay’s, we want to make sure we are elevating our offerings. It’s a reflection of the lifestyle of living here and calling the region home. Being able to live, work, play and own property in the Nelson Kootenay Lake area is something not to be taken for granted, and the specialness of the Kootenay’s is real, and it is to be shared with anyone interested in pursuing it.

In the current pandemic that has dramatically affected the way the way we do business, this is a very useful tool to have when selling or buying property, and we look forward to sharing it with you.”
