Ryan Matthew Cohn and Regina Marie Cohn are the founders and operators of Oddities Flea Market. Ryan is known as the host of the television series Oddities (2010-14) and has since expanded her career to fine art commissions and installations. Regina has extensive experience in the fashion industry and is now an executive producer of the market and their many other projects. Weekly Antiques and Arts visited the couple at their home to discuss their career, collection and upcoming events.

How was the Oddities flea market born, which became a movement in the field of antiques?

Regina: It was my idea, on a whim! I had just retired after almost 20 years in the fashion industry, and I was constantly jealous of all the fun Ryan was having.

Ryan: I was traveling the world while Regina was locked in a store, working weekends and holidays.

Regina: I wanted to find a way for us to work together and develop his projects. People were doing smaller scale commissions and deals, but they were from an artist background not a business background, so I was very confident that I could grow this, run it like a business and make it huge.
Ryan: We had a lot of different people that we worked with but we didn’t really have a place to house all of this talent that we collectively knew, and this was a great opportunity to do that.

Regina: In March 2017, I decided to launch the first market in this dive of a building in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, with three floors of carpeting… a filthy place. We asked all of our friends in the community if they were interested in vending machines and asked Mike and Evan [of Obscura Antiques from Oddities] use their name. It was a huge success; we had to cut the line at 5pm because we didn’t know there would be thousands of people showing up. We had to refuse some. Of course, we had to do it again with a two-day event, and the show only grew from there.

Assembly of figures of santos, reliquaries and other artefacts dated up to the 19th century.

What sets Oddities Flea Market apart from standard antique and art exhibits?

Ryan: Well, we definitely emphasize the quirks! We focus on things that are a little out of the ordinary; natural history, anatomy, science and the like. This could be a jewelry maker, an artist who makes illustrations, or someone who sells antiques. We have it all under one roof.

Regina: We take our time with applications and choose only the best of the best. We also try to inspire them to become more creative, push their limits and create exclusive products for our events. We provide preventive information such as “our followers are mainly women, please keep this in mind when organizing your table”. We want them to succeed.

Ryan: We are like the coaches of the community.

In addition to the market, you also organize and set up exhibitions. Tell us about this process.

Ryan: Just finished one at a really cool mansion in Irvington, NY, the Armour-Stiner Octagon House. One of the owners recognized me during a regular visit and commissioned me to transform an upstairs room into a cabinet of curiosities. We do installations in museums and people’s homes, we even did New York Fashion Week before the pandemic hit.

Regina: We also did a lot with our bar in Brooklyn, House of Wax. It was so much easier for us to organize events in this space, again to promote active people in our community and keep everyone together because the markets were only held once or twice a year .

Do you use your own collection for installations?

Ryan: A bit of both. We always keep something good because I know we’re going to use it for something.

Regina: Many of these museums do not have a big budget, and we want to help them. It’s something Ryan likes to do. I would say 80% is from our personal collection.

As your careers progressed, a new generation of collectors grew up with you. Do you think this bodes well for the future of antiques?

Ryan: I think it’s great! There are a lot more collectors now than when we launched Oddities. Many people didn’t know this genre existed until they watched the show, which also spawned more stores. It is a double-edged sword; it certainly made it harder to find and also drove up the prices, but that’s also a good thing. We also sell occasionally, but most of what we do is to hold spaces and share our collection with the general public.

Life-size artist’s mannequin and collection of skulls in the library.

How has moving from Brooklyn, NY, to Connecticut changed your business?

Ryan: We are kind of at the forefront in the country now! New York used to be great and all, but now we’re in a really old state so we’re closer to antiques. We live in a beautiful Victorian town, and the property sales here are mind-blowing! This doesn’t necessarily mean we find 15th century demonology books, but we have purchased chairs that once belonged to Bunny Williams.

Regina: Ryan is contacted by people in Connecticut and invites him to their house, especially if they are moving or selling something. The storage factor also stopped us in New York.

Ryan: We had eight storage units in and around New York, New Jersey. And it’s really difficult when you want to find something in your collection. The last place we had was a three story brownstone and we moved to a place that was four times its size.

Regina: It was a disaster! When we first moved here, I was overwhelmed with all this space, thinking, “We don’t have kids, I don’t want to clean it up, we’re never going to fill these properties, that’s okay. looking empty…”

Ryan: Do you know who you are married to?

Regina: Then I turned to Ryan yesterday and said, ‘We’ve been here two years, why do I feel like our house is getting too small? I shouldn’t have said that, it’ll give him ideas.

Ryan: I thought it would take us years to fill up. Well, we’re almost at capacity now. When we moved here we were raising a kitten and finally found the right home for her. So now we have a giant room on the third floor that will become a library or Wunderkammer.

Regina: I’m scared because it’s the last free room in our house, so Ryan will run out of plans. I don’t know what’s next!

Ryan: We are lucky because we have a real chapel on the property. Any overflowing merchandise or anything that doesn’t fit in the house usually goes there until we figure out what to do with it. We didn’t touch inside as it’s filled to the brim with antiques at the moment.

Regina: You can’t enter it!

What are your collection criteria?

Ryan: Must be rare, something I don’t already have. I want things that tell a story. I tend to be interested in things that have a dark, mysterious or other history. Even in our book collection we have a lot of esoteric books like early bibles, books on witchcraft and demonology, anatomy and natural history.

18th century cage doll, probably Spanish. Photo courtesy of Ryan M. Cohn.

Want to share one of your favorite recent finds?

Ryan: I picked up an 18th century cage doll, which I think is Spanish. They are usually Portuguese or Italian. She’s about 2½ or 3 feet tall with a very expressive face, the paint is really good, and she’s distressed in all the right areas. The cage would have been covered with a robe. I’ve never owned a cage doll, but I have many figurines of santos, which are religious dolls that were either used in churches or in personal collections for worship.

What attracts collectors to the strange and unusual?

Ryan: Many people like us strive to discover the history of every object we encounter, and almost everyone is interested in the unknown, or something that may be uncomfortable to learn. And then you have the other sect of people who actually want to own these things. It’s like anyone else in antiques; you could collect thimbles or books on witchcraft. I just think there are more people out there sharing their love for weirdness – more than ever before.

[On sourcing the strange] People are selling it! I will almost always hear that they can’t keep things on the shelves. When we walk into an antique store, I ask for the most expensive things because those are likely to be the most interesting. We still travel in Europe and we are very interested in everything that preceded the 19th century. It’s everywhere there.

Regina: And when he complains about not finding anything here, I remind him that it’s all his fault!

Ryan: Accidentally, yes.

The next Oddities Flea Market: New York will take place on December 10. For information, www.theodditiesfleamarket.com.

Editor’s Note: The Armour-Stiner Octagon House “Myths & Mysteries” facility is viewable until October 31. Atlas Obscura will host a monthly virtual event series, “Antiques and Their Afterlives: Stories From the Collection of Ryan and Regina Cohn,” in early October.

Photo by Tammy Wells

KENNEBUNK – John Dulude built dollhouses for his daughters years ago. Then, more than 20 years later, he took up this hobby again after retiring from the insurance business he owned.

He recently competed in a nine-room Colonial with wrap-around porch and gazebo, which will be raffled off by Webber-Lefebvre Post American Legion 74 in Kennebunk, of which he is a member. Proceeds from the raffle will go to the scholarship fund – the Legion Post provides a scholarship to a Kennebunk High School graduate each year.

Dulude builds the houses from kits, favoring those from the Vermont Toy Company and a New Hampshire manufacturer, but goes much further – meticulously installing elements such as plank-by-plank hardwood floors, other flooring, wallpaper and even the doors that separate each room.

“I did all the stairs on the stairs,” he said recently. He installed the shingles one at a time, row by row – laying down two rows of shingles before pausing and waiting for the glue and paint to dry, then adding two more rows, and so on. The wallpaper was a little tricky, until he got used to using wallpaper paste, he said, and the result was a smooth surface, as it was supposed to be.

The dollhouse features six out of six windows and an oval pane in the front door.

This is the third he made and donated to the Legion. He estimated that it took him three months to build, on and off.

Member Bob De Clercq said the Legion Post will draw 150 tickets, at $10 each. Tickets are available from him at [email protected]or 781-264-5178 or John Gouveia at [email protected] or 516-236-9244.

“John was extremely generous in giving us these dollhouses,” De Clercq said. He noted that the dollhouse measures 40 inches wide by 30 inches high and 25 inches deep.

“This dollhouse is ready to be furnished and will provide many hours of fun and enjoyment for a child or grandchild,” said De Clercq. “The draw for the dollhouse winner will take place on December 7, enough time for holiday gifts.”

Dulude has donated dollhouses to benefit other causes and organizations, donating houses to St. David’s Church and an inn in Ogunquit that used it as a raffle item to benefit the Foundation Make-A-Wish.

Dulude, 84, said making dollhouses kept him busy and he was currently working on another – a castle, which will benefit St David’s Church. He estimates that he has made 20 dollhouses.

The castle, he says, is seven feet high. “I’m building it in two parts so I can get it out of the cellar.”

Set […]]]>

‘Over the River and Through the Woods,’ a thunderous and heartwarming comedy from the Tony Award-winning playwright Joe Di Pietro (“Memphis”, “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change”) will be the first production of the Hampton Theater Companyof the 2022-2023 season, which begins October 20 at Quogue Community Hall and runs through November 6.

Set inside a suburban home in the not-too-distant past, “Over the River and Through the Woods” puts the concept of “tengo familia” to the test – an Italian phrase referring to the importance of “keeping family first” — through the eyes and opinions of two sets of passionate Italian-American grandparents and their beloved, albeit restless, 29-year-old grandson.

Nick Cristano may be living the life of a single young professional in New York, but his four grandparents – Frank and Aida Gianelli, and Nunzio and Emma Cristano – have never let him forget his place: in New Jersey with them, in a tenacious, tender, noisy and well-fed family. The comfortable status quo is turned upside down when Nick announces he’s been offered a big promotion…in Seattle. This explosive revelation leads his grandparents to hatch a code red plan to chart an irresistible alternate future designed to keep Nick close to home. At the center of this scheme is Caitlin, a surprise guest who just might turn the tide in favor of the oldies.

A loudly funny and touching story about intergenerational relationships, deep family love, and the inevitable little heartbreaks that come as time passes and children grow, “Over the River and Through the Woods” played 800 performances at the John Houseman theater in New York City from 1998 to 2000. The play was hailed by BackStage as “a hilarious family comedy that’s even funnier than [DiPietro’s] ‘I love you, you’re perfect, now switch.'” The Star-Ledger wrote that the piece is “laden with laughter every step of the way,” with YourObserver.com calling it “a crowd-pleasing evening of theatre”.

The HTC production of “Over the River and Through the Woods” features a spirited cast of six, including three HTC veterans: George A. Loizides (“On Golden Pond”, “Alarms & Excursions”) as Nunzio, Catherine Maloney (“Sylvia,” “A Tenor Comedy”) as Emma, ​​and patrick osborne (“The Stranger”) as Nick. HTC newcomers include Amelia Chiaramonte as Aida, Carl DiModugno as Frank, and Meg Hrinkevich as Caitlin.

In addition to playing in the play, Georges Loizides (“A Doll’s House, Part 2”, “Native Gardens”, “Private Lives”) directs, with Roger Moley co-directing. The scenography is by M. Loizides; lighting design by Sebastian Paczynski; sound by Seamus Naughton; and costumes by Teresa Lebrun.

“Over the River and Through the Woods” will be presented from October 20 to November 6 on Thursdays and Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. An additional matinee performance will be offered on the last production weekend, Saturday, November 5, before the regular 8 p.m. performance that evening. A discussion with the actors will be offered to ticket holders immediately after the performance on Friday, October 28 in the evening.

Tickets are $36, $31 for seniors and $20 for students 25 and under, and are available on the Hampton Theater Company website at hamptontheatre.org or by calling 631-653-8955. A discounted season pass offer, applied to all three HTC productions in 2022-2023 with savings of up to 20%, is also available through the theater’s website or phone number.

Barbiecore for a Cure: Dress in pink with PGC and support the fight against breast cancer

Posted 2:36 p.m. on Wednesday, September 21, 2022

NATCHEZ – Ever wanted to dress up as Barbie? Ever wanted to dress up like Barbie and party with your friends while supporting a good cause at the same time?

The Pilgrimage Garden Club allows you and your friends to do just that. In fact, they give you two options. Barbiecore for a Cure is Friday, September 30 from 8-11 p.m. and Saturday, October 1 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., both at the Carriage House Restaurant on the grounds of Stanton Hall.

Wear pink or dress like your favorite Barbie in pink. The cost is $50 per person and includes food and an open bar.

The best part is this: donations to the American Cancer Society will be accepted at the door and all breast cancer information will be provided.

“Move over the hoop skirts! The Pilgrimage Garden Club is embracing the hottest new fashion aesthetic of the moment, Barbiecore! said Noelle Stewart, co-chair of the event.

“This fun fashion trend is vibrant, pink, bubbly and inspired by everyone’s favorite plastic doll, Barbie. With the upcoming Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie and Valentino and Balenciaga unveiling hot pink fall collections, Barbiecore for he PGC Cure is embracing the latest rage for a good cause,” she said.

The event is open to everyone, she said, and will kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month while raising money for the American Cancer Society, Stewart said.

“Friday night we’ll have lots of things to do, like lots of cute photo opportunities,” she said. “We will have a convertible for taking photos, a pink carpet to enter the event. We will have a life-size pink Barbie box for photos. You are not required to wear pink, but we encourage everyone to wear pink or dress like their favorite Barbie in pink There will be food and a DJ and a pink Barbie disco Friday night will have a disco theme.

Friday night decorations will be left at the Carriage House on Saturday for all to enjoy.

“Wayne is working on a Barbie menu, and we hope all the parents of little girls will come to the Carriage House for lunch on Saturday,” Stewart said. “Little girls can bring their Barbies to lunch on Saturday.”

Donations to the American Cancer Society will be accepted Friday night at the door and Saturday.

“These donations do not go through us. Checks should be made payable to the American Cancer Society and will be delivered directly to them,” she said. “We hope everyone will come for this. It will be a lot of fun.”

The Friday night party will take place at the Carriage House restaurant on the grounds of Stanton Hall, with great music, dancing, heavy appetizers and an open bar. Tickets are $50 per person. On Saturday, the party will continue for the Carriage house lunch crowd.

“After COVID, I think a photo of this glorious color is just what we need right now to lift our spirits and energize us all,” said Marsha Colson, President of PGC. “It’s no wonder it’s become a global trend.”

Donations to the American Cancer Society will be accepted at the door.

“We all know someone whose life has been affected by breast cancer,” Colson said. “We invite everyone to join us and dance on their pink platforms to inspire hope for the future and a cure.”

Tickets will be sold at the door and are on sale online at:

Primitive

Genndy Tartakovsky also recently confirmed Weekly entertainment that a potential third season of Primitive will not continue the story of Spear and Fang.

I don’t want to continue this story. I feel like this season we’ve done it all, in a way. I want it to become almost an anthology show, where season 3 would still be called Primitive, but with a different subtitle. Low dialogue, high emotion, survival, brutality, visual storytelling: all that, but with different characters. There’s more things I want to do with Primitive, not necessarily Spear and Fang. Maybe if there’s a giant outcry, we’ll continue the story with her daughter and Mira and the Dinosaurs. I should really think about it.

The Two Popes (Rose Theatre, Kingston and on tour)

Verdict: Alpha Papas

Evaluation:

The Snail House (Hampstead Theatre, London)

Verdict: No more pain, please!

Evaluation:

At a time of royal succession, this beautiful revival of Anthony McCarten’s play about Popes Benedict and Francis is poignantly relevant.

Its central question of how we move from one era to another and how an incumbent relates to his office weighs heavily on our minds today.

The play, which has been made into a movie starring Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce, is a speculation about what happened behind the scenes in 2013, when Benedict XVI shook the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics by becoming the first pontiff to resign in 700 years.

The retiring pope is played here by Anton Lesser – with Nicholas Woodeson as Francis – and both find immense warmth in the troubled souls of men.

The big debate is whether the Catholic Church should renew or transform its 2,000-year-old traditions. But McCarten and the actors focus on the two men as human beings who find themselves overwhelmed with a great responsibility.

The retiring pope is played here by Anton Lesser (right) – with Nicholas Woodeson as Francis (left) – and the two find enormous warmth in the men's troubled souls.

The retiring pope is played here by Anton Lesser (right) – with Nicholas Woodeson as Francis (left) – and the two find enormous warmth in the men’s troubled souls.

Lesser first revels in Benedict’s pleasure in secretly watching Kommissar Rex, the Austrian thriller about a dog solving a crime. He remembers, innocently, how, in his youth, a girl once allowed him to scoop salt from his pretzel.

Argentine Cardinal Bergoglio de Woodeson (who became Pope Francis) likes to tango and watch football; and once told a girl he would become a priest if she didn’t marry him (the sigh that follows is worth the ticket price alone). Yet Bergoglio reminds Benedict that a priest is an “imperfect vessel” and asks who are they to bring change to a church that itself needs such great forgiveness.

Former Joseph Ratzinger (later Benedict) is racked with guilt for failing to thwart a pedophile priest in Germany. Bergoglio is ashamed that he did not do more to support the victims of Argentina’s fascist junta in the 1970s. And yet, despite their imperfections and apprehensions, one of them must bear the burden of the papacy.

Both are energized by supportive and provocative nuns (Lynsey Beauchamp and Leaphia Darko); and James Dacre’s production is tender but intense. There are occasional cheesy outbursts of ‘Gloria! Gloria!’ echoing amid puffs of incense and church lighting, but it’s a thoughtful, soulful delight that shines bright again.

Catholics are well known for their belief in the dignity of suffering and, as a Catholic myself, I would have liked to suffer a little more from Richard Eyre’s first play, The Snail House.

Clearly influenced by the great Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, this is the story of a consultant pediatrician and knight of the kingdom who discovers that the past is catching up with him as he celebrates his 55th birthday with his friends and family.

Played by Vincent Franklin, our doctor is an authoritarian northerner, firm in his faith in science. During the evening, he is confronted by the catering manager – against whom (it turns out) he testified in court a few years before.

The doctor’s wife (Eva Pope) endures grievances familiar to wives of alpha males, while her gay son (Patrick Walshe McBride) is a scathing political adviser and their daughter (Grace Hogg-Robinson) a teenage eco-warrior.

One of the great directors of modern times, Eyre (a late screenwriter at 79) rolls out the action with skill. But I wanted more of everything: sweat, tears, intrigue and, above all, pain.

Not to mention the trick. How, for example, did the catering manager (Amanda Bright) come to take charge of the posh party in an oak-panelled schoolhouse? Was it just a coincidence?

Our top doctor could also have faced more than one moral dilemma: one that could have revealed greater depth in his character. Instead, the charges against him aren’t really his fault and are resolved at little cost.

A fun pair, a quirky game…should be a perfect fit

The clothes they stood in (Nottingham Playhouse)

Verdict: Used Bennett

Evaluation:

It should have been a wedding in theater heaven: Adrian Scarborough and Sophie Thompson, two of our most beloved actors, par excellence eccentric and comedic, in the staging of an Alan Bennett short story about a bizarre type of burglary , which first strips a couple of their material possessions (including the used toilet brush) and, second, the “marital deceits” that allowed this pair to function.

It’s a kind of parable about losing “stuff” – and discovering that possessions matter less than loving, living relationships, neither of which knew much about before the thieves cleaned out the contents of their apartment. in London.

There’s a brief explanation of the theft, but that’s certainly not the point of this little literary gem.

Alas, it is now at the center of Scarborough’s adaptation, dragged unconvincingly into post-Brexit Britain. The portrait of a wedding becomes an over-the-top, over-the-top whodunit, losing Bennett’s deliciously amused and ironic tone in the process.

Still, even second-hand Bennett has its pleasures. For Rosemary soft and repressed, hunched and droopy before her time, the flight proves liberating and revelatory, feelings somewhat hammered home by Thompson, suddenly all joyful, breathtaking, amazed.

Venturing into her neighborhood shop to restock essentials (having always stuck to the security of Marks & Spencer), she is charmed by the friendly Mr Anwar, the widowed shopkeeper (an echo of Bed Among The Lentils, one Bennett’s brilliant Talking Heads).

Dusty, a counselor for victims of crime, enters the uncluttered apartment and, comfortably slumped on Rosemary’s new beanbags, the women discuss their grief and the need to “heal your belly”. Moved by daytime TV’s Lorraine Kelly, Rosemary plans to ‘hone her marital skills’. “I grew up,” she beams.

By contrast, Scarborough struggles to animate Mozart-mad Maurice, a deadly dull and quietly oppressive lawyer with a dirty secret, who cannot be shaken from his rigid routine.

Entertainment a little laborious.

BROWN GEORGINE

Inspector still has the power to stop us

An Inspector Calls (New Wimbledon Theatre)

Verdict: Still relevant at 30

Evaluation:

Stephen Daldry’s sweeping reimagining of JB Priestley’s thriller (written in 1945 and set before World War I) was a smash hit at the National Theater in 1992, winning 19 major awards, including three Oliviers and four Tonys on Broadway. Now it has been given a welcome 30th anniversary revival tour under the associate direction of Charlotte Peters.

The play (set to a striking set by Ian MacNeil) begins with loud music and lots of smoke, with the Birling family’s dollhouse of a house stuck in the middle of a ravaged cityscape, emphasizing the fable quality of the work, a morality tale for our time.

Mysterious Inspector Goole (nicely sardonic Liam Brennan) unexpectedly calls the successful Birlings as they reunite to celebrate daughter Sheila’s engagement to local businessman Gerald (Simon Cotton).

Mysterious Inspector Goole (Liam Brennan, nicely sardonic, pictured) unexpectedly calls the successful Birlings as they reunite to celebrate his daughter Sheila’s engagement to local businessman Gerald (Simon Cotton)

Goole investigates the death of a young woman whom it turns out they all knew in one way or another – none of them testing positive.

Sheila, emotionally charged by Evlyne Oyedokun, is the moral center of the play, a vapid social butterfly who develops a conscience before our eyes as the hypocrisy of her fiancé and parents (Jeffrey Harmer and Christine Kavanagh) is put to rest. bare.

I had the added pleasure of seeing this production at a school performance. There’s no better barometer of awkward exposition and overaction than a large group of teenagers and I’m happy to report that their laughs were just a few.

Daldry’s production remains a socially relevant document – and the piece still functions as a rousing call to personal responsibility.

Until September 17, then on tour (aninspectorcalls.com)

Although floor plans are standard on property listings in many European countries and Australia, floor plans are not required and do not exist on most property listings in the United States.

“Historically, people thought floor plans were difficult to produce, expensive, or both,” said CubiCasa President Jeff Allen. “Before five or six years ago, the only way to produce a floor plan was by hand, by hand drawing, measuring and sketching. And properties in the United States are very large and complex.

Even recently, with technologies such as virtual tours or dollhouse-style immersive tours that provide floor plans, these services can be expensive, requiring special training and equipment, and time-consuming to collect data. , says Allen.

Due to cost, time, and difficulty barriers, floor plans have been considered a niche product, but CubiCasa aims to change that.

“That’s our mission,” Allen said. “We want to change the American paradigm so that floor plans become ubiquitous in the listing process.”

Benefits of including a floor plan

Despite the fact that floor plans aren’t standard in US listings, homebuyers are looking for them.

According to a report by the National Association of Realtors, home buyers rate floor plans as the most sought-after feature on a real estate listing, after standard listing photos and property data.

“Buyers want them because the floor plans give a quick and clear idea of ​​the space and flow of the property,” Allen said. “Because floor plans also include room measurements and dimensions, they give buyers a clearer idea of, ‘Okay, will my furniture, my lifestyle, fit in actually in these rooms?’ You give the buyer much quicker insight into their willingness to make an offer.”

Additionally, buyers often filter results on listing sites to find listings with floor plans. “It’s another way to get people’s eyes on your listing first, which is becoming increasingly important now that there are more and more homes on the market,” Allen said.

Buyers aren’t the only ones who benefit from detailed floor plans, either. A floor plan can give the seller a much more accurate idea of ​​the square footage of their property, as well as an idea of ​​how this might impact its marketability or the appraisal process.

Overall, including a floor plan can make a real estate listing more appealing, contribute to a higher sale price and faster time to close, as well as provide all stakeholders with a better experience throughout the home buying process.

CubiCasa’s plan to make floor plans ubiquitous

CubiCasa is poised to help make floor plans a standard part of US listings through the use of its mobile capture technology, which has produced over one million floor plans to date.

“CubiCasa is the only technology in the world capable of producing an accurate floor plan from a five-minute period, without training [required] scan that can be done with your smartphone,” Allen said.

While other solutions require special hardware, training, and a lot of time spent capturing on location, CubiCasa eliminates these difficulties by applying advanced computer vision techniques and a production automation process to phone capture. of a user.

“All the user has to do is just walk through the house with their phone pointed in front of them as they walk, and the scan is captured, your phone data is captured, and it’s all processed by our proprietary models. , which then sends you back the floor plan result with all the dimensions, details and square footage you’re looking for,” Allen said.

From this simple visit, the technology produces a highly accurate floor plan sketch, with the ability to calculate the GLA according to ANSI standards. Square footage is the second highest factor in a home’s value, and CubiCasa’s technology helps minimize inconsistencies and variations in the property data collection and inspection process.

And in an effort to make floor plans standard in US listings, CubiCasa now offers a free floor plan option.

“There’s no excuse not to have it on your rosters now because if you’re a listing agent it’ll take you five minutes and cost you nothing,” Allen said. “And it provides major benefits to your potential sellers and buyers.”

Ultimately, CubiCasa’s goal is to create the tipping point where the market decides that every ad should include a floor plan. If it’s simple and easy for listing agents to include floor plans, more listings will include them. From there, buyers will start to expect to see floor plans, leading to a more widespread change in behavior for sellers and listing agents where they choose to include floor plans all the time.

“If we can change the market so that buyers start to expect it, then the whole market will win because buyers will be better informed,” Allen said. “Everyone will have a clearer idea of ​​what a property is before they go to see it, and ultimately they’ll be closer to making a buying decision than they would be without it.”
