CubiCasa’s Partnership Program to Launch in Utah along with UtahRealEstate.com’s New Floor Plan Upload Tool
Sandy, UT – February 7, 2023 – UtahRealEstate.com (URE), which serves approximately 20,000 real estate professionals and nearly 96% of all REALTORS® in the state of Utah, has partnered with CubiCasa, a global-reaching real estate software company that provides easy-to-use floor plan creation software. Once launched, URE members will have a seamless integration with CubiCasa’s mobile application that will enable URE members to scan and create property floor plans using CubiCasa’s software. UtahRealEstate.com will also be releasing innovative listing management features that enable the floor plan to become more than just a photo within a listing.
Brad Bjelke, CEO of UtahRealEstate.com, said “Floor plans add a visual data set to property listings, and they are very popular with consumers searching for properties. At UtahRealEstate.com, we control our technology platform, and we can build tools for our members that make the floor plan listing integration easy to use and efficient. We will be the first MLS in the country to do more than simply allow an agent to add a floorplan into the photo carousel, as we create new features that will enable access to the floor plans by our members, their clients, and our data licensing partners. In today’s constantly evolving real estate market, it is important that we provide as much data and information on a property as possible, and CubiCasa is empowering our members to do just that.”
Launched in December 2022, CubiCasa’s MLS Partnership Program enables members to create free floor plans using CubiCasa’s mobile application, a discounted rate on optional add-on features, and access to an active directory of real estate photographers who are currently using CubiCasa. MLSs can also receive trustworthy and digitized property information to help reinforce the MLS as the center of making local real estate markets work effectively.
“In launching this program, we wanted to further empower key industry participants to include digital floor plans on every listing in the U.S.,” said Jeff Allen, President of CubiCasa. “The addition of UtahRealEstate.com underscores the success and momentum we are seeing for digital floor plans within MLS organizations across the country, and we look forward to playing an integral role in providing a better experience for agents and buyers across Utah.”
To help better highlight floor plans that are added to listings, UtahRealEstate.com will be developing a new media upload tool for their MLS system specifically for uploading floor plans to listings. This new tool will clearly distinguish floor plans from other media (photos, tours, etc.), which UtahRealEstate.com believes will give agents and their clients the means to better understand the layout of a home before physically visiting the location.
