In 2007 our CEO, David Payne, was looking for a new condo and found that trying to visualize a home from just 2D floor plans was next to impossible. For David, as a senior software architect working at one of Canada’s most established technology firms, the idea of buying a condo without understanding what it would actually look like was a missed opportunity and sought to bridge that gap.
As a result, Invent Dev was born in 2010, with a mission to make the journey of buying a new home an informative, enjoyable, and stress free process. Soon the team grew from a small team creating state of the art visualization technology to an award winning solution disrupting how homes are bought and sold.
This led to the creation of Invent Dev’s “Digital Model Homes”, which are dimensionally accurate and photo-realistic 3D simulations of the entire new development.
Now, with Invent Dev’s Digital Model Homes, people looking to buy a home at a new development can walk around and experience in 3D every floorplan, finish option, view, amenity, common space, exterior, and much more.
Invent Dev’s Digital Model Homes and VR experiences have been featured by Samsung, Yahoo!, Globe and Mail, BNN, The Toronto Star and other media outlets, and was ranked in 2017 as “The Product for Builders” by Builder Online magazine.
Fast forward to now, and our Digital Model Homes have been used for hundreds of new developments across Canada, US and China, and helping thousands of people feel confident about their home buying decision.
