4 Major Benefits of Virtual Home Staging
What is Virtual Home Staging? By definition, "Home Staging is the act of
preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate market place. The goal of staging
is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers." Virtual Home
Staging brings home staging to the virtual world! That's right...the world has gone virtual
and so have we. Virtual Home Staging is the final step in preparing the home to sell. Once the home is de-cluttered, de-personalized, and cleaned, then it comes time to do the finishing touches.
You need to stage the furniture and decor in the home to make it stand out from other
properties, and make it look like a model home. If you're a builder, property manager,
house flipper, then virtual home staging is a great option. You can use Virtual Home
Staging to paint the picture for potential buyers of what their life would look like in a
property. Home staging has many benefits when selling a property, but Virtual Home
Staging has it's own benefits as well. Here are 4 benefits of hiring a virtual home staging company to help market and sell your properties.
#1) Internet & Media Photos Will Look Better
When you stage a property, you're helping the buyer visualize what their lifestyle
will be like in your home. If you are a home builder, real estate agent, home seller,
property manager, or house flipper, staging a property whether virtually or not, will
always make the photos you use look more appealing to potential buyers. With the proper
furniture virtually placed in photos, you can help buyers see the lifestyle you are selling
them. Buyers tend to buy on an emotional feeling they have, you can paint that picture
for them before they even make an appointment to see the home. 95% of buyers preview
homes online before seeing the property in person. By virtually staging a property, you
can drive more potential buyers to want to see your property.
#2) Virtual Home Staging Is Low Cost
If you decide to go all out and stage a whole vacant property, I'm definitely all for
that. But to rent or buy furniture to stage a property can cost thousands. Don't get me
wrong...I definitely see all the benefits of fully furnishing a home to stage the property,
but if you don't have the budget to do that, then virtually staging a property is a great
alternative. Virtually staging a whole property can cost as little as a few hundred dollars.
You can still help the buyers visualize their own furnishings in the property without the
big price tag.
#3) Your Property Will Stand Out
Many builders and property renters may not have it in their budget to furnish a
model home or apartment every time the property needs to be re-listed. By virtually
staging a home, they have those pictures on file any time they need them. Your listings
will stand out in the media when they are virtually staged compared to other vacant
properties. It gives you a step up against competitors and shows potential buyers the
quality your company offers, and that you go above and beyond other competitors. This
is also a great way to show what type of clientele you are trying to bring to your property.
If you're in an area and that is trying to attract students, then we would virtually stage a
property appealing to a younger crowd. If you are a premier home builder trying to
attract a potential buyer that is looking for a more luxurious lifestyle, than you would
virtually stage the property in more luxurious furniture. It just really shows potential
buyers what you have to offer, and who your trying to offer it to.
#4) Out With The Old, And In With The New (Furniture...That Is!)
Many real estate agents have listings of homes where the bones of the house are
great, but it definitely needs some updating. The sellers may not be able to afford to
renovate a house just to sell it, but some simple updating of furniture could help make the
house appeal to more buyers. If you are trying to sell a house that could be in a great
area, and everything about the house is great, but the furniture is stuck in the 80's making
the listing look tired and unappealing, then virtual furniture replacement could be your
answer. If you have old outdated furniture it can actually be taken out of the picture, then
new updated furniture can be virtually placed back in the photo. Voila...you have an a
great house that looks a little more updated with virtual furniture replacement, without the
