CubiCasa, a real estate software company that creates floor plans through its mobile app, has added The MLSTM/CLAW to its national Multiple Listing Services (MLS) partnership program, which launched in December 2022. The MLSTM/CLAW is the 10th firm to join the MLS partnership program.
Under the partnership, more than 16,000 agents and brokers in Southern California who utilize VESTAPLUS™ MLS Software, a wholly owned subsidiary of The MLS™/CLAW, will have access to CubiCasa, the company said Tuesday.
“We’re helping to empower their members with our easy-to-use, free floor plan tool that will ultimately allow buyers to make more informed purchasing decisions,” Jeff Allen, president of CubiCasa, said in a statement. “Making floor plans the standard on home listings across the country will add a new level of transparency and certainty to the real estate process.”
Floor plans ranked as the third most desired listing feature for homebuyers, after photos and detailed listing information, according to a survey by the National Association of Realtors. While floor plans have become a priority for buyers, only 10-15% home listings in the U.S. have floor plans.
CubiCasa’s 2D Floor Plans app enables a phone scan that collects raw scan imagery. Within 24 hours, the floor plan sketching technology will provide a high-resolution floor plan file of the house, the firm said.
CubiCasa’s app features optional add-on selections where users can get floor plans with fixed installations, such as kitchen cabinetry, bathroom fixtures and appliances, and a Gross Living Area (GLA) report aligned with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards for $15 each. With a $10 payment, users can request to receive the floor plan in six hours, the firm promotes on its website.
The Finland-headquartered company started a partnership program for MLS about three months ago, and CubiCasa has since announced partnerships with Montana Regional MLS, Valley MLS, South Tahoe Association of Realtors (STAOR), Western Arizona MLS (WARDEX) and Omni MLS.
Following its free product launch in August, CubiCasa saw a 455% jump in user signups year-over-year and a 98% increase in new U.S. real estate scans, the company said. To date, CubiCasa produced more than 1 million floor plans and is used in 172 countries, according to the company’s website.
In September 2021, Clear Capital bought CubiCasa, which is now a fully owned subsidiary of Clear Capital that operates independently of its corporate parent. With the acquisition, CubiCasa’s automated floor plan sketching technology was integrated with Clear Capital’s ClearInsight Platform, a mobile property data collection application.
