About Author

Virtual staging is the process of digitally decorating the interiors/ exterior of a home with the help of computer technology. It makes homes look realistically staged and appealing to clients, thereby boosting home prices and facilitating quicker sales. According to a 2018 home survey, it has helped 68% of homes sell for 9% more money. Virtual staging is hassle-free, faster, and economical when compared to traditional home staging. Clients can choose from a variety of interior design styles, including traditional, contemporary, and coastal. With Redfin reporting that two-thirds of the homebuyers in the United States in 2020 made bids unseen, the demand for virtual staging is on the rise, now more than ever.

Images with over 2k pixels or more produce the best results. We would request you to upload several photos of the same room so that our designers can pick the best out of the lot. However, if your images do not meet the requirements, please reach out to us at stage@styldod.com.
