With so many buyers browsing homes online these days, it’s essential to have your home listing photos appear as impressive and professional as possible. Virtual staging saves you the hassle and financial strain of hiring someone to stage your home. We’ve outlined what virtual staging is- and why you should consider it if you’re listing your home for sale.
What Is Virtual Staging?
Virtual staging is a testament to how far technology has come and how helpful it can be. Virtual stagers use software to edit photos of your home in a myriad of ways. Furniture removal, different design options, and added color schemes are all added bonuses of staging your home virtually. Virtual staging saves you the headache of having to stress over your home’s current interior design. It also allows you to completely redo the look of your home without moving all of your furniture out of the house.
Virtual stagers can edit out pieces of furniture and replace them with more modern pieces to make your home look as attractive as possible to potential buyers. Your real estate agent will likely handle the process of hiring a photographer to capture photos of your home and reviewing which parts of it could benefit from some virtual touch-ups.
Advantages of Virtual Staging in Comparison to Traditional methods
It’s More Affordable
Virtually staging a home costs far less than traditional staging. Using virtual staging, furniture rental, installation costs, and moving services are entirely unnecessary. Each virtual stage photo costs anywhere from $70-$100. While that may seem like a lot for a singular JPEG, It’s much more cost-effective than the process of traditional staging, which can cost $2000 or more per month. Virtual staging is a must if you’re looking to appeal to buyers online without breaking the bank.
It Helps Potential Buyers See Potential
You can customize your virtual staging techniques to your target audience to help them see the most potential in your home. With virtual staging, it’s possible to show what a home could look like after renovations. Potential buyers will be impressed when your virtual stager recreates the photos with their preferences in mind, which helps them connect with the home.
Saves Time and Effort
Virtual staging makes it so that you don’t have to spend the time and money on movers shuffling furniture in and out of your home. Virtual stagers can work quickly to generate photos of your home in just a few days. Get listing images that are more appealing to buyers without you-or anyone else- lifting a finger.
You Can Stay In Your House
When you don’t have to empty your house to be staged, this means you get to stay there during the entire listing process! So while blatantly obvious personal items should be put away during the initial photography, you won’t face any other disruptions in the staging of your home.
