by Candyd Mendoza17 Mar 2020

Home inspection platform Seek Now has acquired HouseLens, a visual marketing services platform for the real estate industry, to expand its presence in the insurance and real estate industries.

Nashville-based HouseLens offers prospective homebuyers with professional photo, walk-through video, and Matterport visual 3D scanning of the interior of residential and commercial properties.

With its acquisition of HouseLens, Seek Now said it would grow its product offerings of 2D and 3D visual marketing data, as well as enhance its real-time inspection services.

“The combination of the HouseLens network of professional photographers, along with Seek Now’s own front-line team of experts, is a powerful opportunity to expand our reach,” said Seek Now CEO Russ Carroll. “When enabled with our proprietary technology, Maestro, it will allow for a streamlined and standardized workflow and output. Increasing front-line skillsets of our combined workforce will enable more services, shorter cycle times, and help our expansion across the US.”
