You can create beautiful 3D floor plans to help you sell your listing. There are a lot of great tools online that can help you do this. However, most of these tools will charge you a fee to create floor plans or to store them. Autodesk Project Dragonfly is a free online utility that allows you to create, save and share your floor plans.

Creating a floor plan with Autodesk Project Dragonfly is as easy as dragging and dropping rooms, floors, walls and furnishings. Start in the "Build" tab on your right and drag and drop a square or "L" shaped room into the design area. Then you can:
  • drag and drop additional square or "L" shaped rooms and connect them

  • add extra walls, a closet and other additions

  • add doors, windows, a fireplace and stairs

  • drag and drop furniture and d├ęcor in the "Furnish & Decorate" Tab

  • use the "Search" tab to find the right furnishings

  • paint the walls

  • add carpet, wood or tile flooring

  • add appliances, cabinets and fixtures

  • add granite countertops to your kitchen

  • add resizable content and set the measurements for cabinets, fixtures, stairs and some furniture with just a click and a drag

  • make your designs public or keep them private

  • show or hide the dimensions

  • show or hide the grid lines

When you are done designing the space you can:
  • view your design in 3D

  • print your designs

  • print your designs with a custom header and/or footer with the choice of showing or hiding the dimensions and gridlines

  • export your design to a jpeg file

  • share your designs by e-mail
Create a simple floor plan with no furnishings and share the link with your potential buyers. They will be able to use the same design functions of Autodesk Project Dragonfly and add furniture to the floor plan to better visualize their belongings in the space. You can also add your own furnishings to the design to show potential buyers just how a space can be used.

Here are some designs we created:
