Adding furniture to an empty space makes it appealing to the buyers – there’s no surprise in that. That said, if you have a large empty home to sell, staging the home can be an expensive task. Moreover, there is no guarantee that your preferences in furniture will match with your buyers’ tastes. So, what can you do to show the potential of the empty home? Staging, of course! But virtual, not traditional.
Virtually staging is a powerful tool to attract the attention and influence the buyer’s choice. High-quality photos of the empty home can be transformed into styled, and designed furnished images that are visually appealing and can be added to your listings. Not only is virtually staging a cost-effective solution, but it also heightens your chances of selling the property faster for the price asked.
Why Go With Virtual FurnitureStaging?
It helps attract the buyers
The first goal for any real estate agent is to get the buyer to preview your home.If the buyers don’t see your property, the house won’t sell. 97% of buyers say that photos are an important factor they consider when deciding whether to preview the home or not. A beautifully virtually staged home in your listing significantly increases your odds.
Better visualization of an empty room
Not every buyer has the ability to walk into an empty space and imagine how it should look. Therefore, selling a vacant home gets challenging as it limits the buyers’ imagination to visualize it as their own. Virtual staging gives better visualization of an empty room and helps gain the attention of the buyers who pass over your empty property listing online because they can’t envision living there.
Make a property more marketable
Let’s face it! A beautifully furnished room filled with furniture, appliances, bookshelves, and flooring spreads warmth and makes it look more attractive. This makes the property more marketable as it helps buyers imagine a life living ina house like that.
Cost-efficient, unlike real furniture staging
Virtual staging is highly cost-effective as compared to traditional staging. You don’t have to hire a company and spend thousands of dollars on setting up the home with expensive furniture and antiques to make the rooms attractive. Virtual staging can be done at a fraction of the cost and depends on the type of staging and the number of rooms you want to be staged.
Get design style customized
With virtual staging, you can customize the room keeping the buyer in mind. You can modify the place as per your audience’s style and preference. Whether your audience likes modern, rustic, or minimalistic – you can virtually modify the spaces to show what your buyer wants to see.
Saves time and effort
Realtors or home sellers can save a lot of time using virtual staging. Traditional home staging is a lengthy and tedious process. You need to hire a staging company, plus order and deliver the furniture and get everything set up and photographed. When you choose to virtually stage a home, you just have to photograph a vacant room(s) and send the images to a virtual staging company. The virtually staged images are delivered back to you within 24 to 48 hours. Seems like a no-brainer. Isn’t it?
Get higher ROI
When a virtual stager reviews your property images, they find ways to utilize the space to its highest potential in order to draw potential buyers. They add more value to your home, leading to higher ROI.
