Virtual staging is a relatively new concept, but it may be the ideal option for many sellers when it comes to putting a home on the market.

Staging your home creates an inviting atmosphere and helps potential buyers envision their own space. But hiring a professional service can be an expensive and time-consuming process. Fortunately, virtual staging is solving that problem. Keep reading to learn more about the amazing benefits of virtual home staging.

What is Virtual Staging?

Unlike traditional staging, which uses rented furniture and decorative items to make a home look appealing, virtual staging takes an empty home and adds furniture via the web. Virtual services use pictures of your empty home and add furniture, rugs and accessories to give your home the optimum aesthetic.

Sellers Save Money

Virtual staging is also much more cost-effective than traditional staging. While prices vary, the virtual market demands around $100 per room. Compare that to the cost of traditional staging, which can easily cost more than $2,000 up front — and an additional $500 to $600 a month — and the choice is obvious for homeowners on a budget. Virtual staging also helps sellers with lower-priced homes turn a profit or pay off a mortgage when they sell.

Benefits for Buyers

Virtual staging also benefits buyers. When visiting an empty house, a buyer actually has the ability to see more details of the space. For many buyers, the ability to see a home in the raw allows them to imagine whether or not the space is truly right for their furniture and sense of style. That can be hard to do when a place is full of rented furniture.

Does it Work?

Virtual staging is a relatively new concept, but it may be the ideal option for many sellers when it comes to putting a home on the market. The fact that it is cost-effective for sellers and visually enticing to potential buyers makes it a promising addition to today’s real estate market.
