2020 was a record-breaking year for real estate as a total of 5.64 million homes were sold, up 5.6% from 2019, according to NAR. Virtual home staging became very popular during this period, considering that it allowed buyers to view homes virtually and imagine themselves living in them. It is also 97% cheaper than traditional home staging. In this video, we are going to share the story of Los Angeles-based real estate agent Kathren Hatayama, our esteemed client who tasted success in selling her listing quickly, effortlessly and for more value with virtual staging. Read on to know more.

How Virtual Staging Helped Kathren Hatayama

Here’s the story of how virtual staging by Styldod helped Kathren Hatayama sell a listing in 10 days for way over the listed price. A Connecticuter by birth, Kathren has been creating ripples in the Los Angeles real estate market for years now and calls herself a seasoned Angeleno, according to her Facebook profile. This hardworking, friendly, and enthusiastic realtor has a talent for connecting with people and addressing their specific real estate needs. That is why a few months ago, when she got the chance to represent a gorgeous listing in the affluent Studio City, California, she knew she had to put her best foot forward and she got Styldod on board.

Studio City is a quaint neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood. The place gets its name from The CBS Studio Center, which dates back to the silent film era. This excellent locality houses many big names from the entertainment industry, so the prices significantly outpace the American average.

When Kathren approached us for virtual staging for real estate, she chose a Scandinavian style. According to her preferences, the tan leather couch in the living room was retained, and off-white chairs, a matching carpet, and a coffee table were added for a stylish touch.


The outdated couch in the TV room was replaced with a contemporary grey one styled with cushions. The minor additions like the shelf filled with books and the indoor plants prove that Styldod has an eye for detail.


The bedroom went from drab to fab after staging. The king-sized bed was made to look cozy to go with the art pieces on the wall.


Couches, a coffee table, and plants have been added to provide life to the patio.


Well, the results were quick sales, top dollar, and a happy Kathren. The property was sold in less than 10 days for way over the list price, and the realtor couldn’t stop gushing about Styldod’s service. “I just think that if you are looking for people to virtually stage your properties, Styldod is a great company to use. They were very communicative, they gave me my product very, very quickly, and they did a very great job. I had no revision requests whatsoever.
