What is Virtual Staging in real estate?
What is virtual staging?
To understand virtual staging, let's first take a look at traditional home staging. When you sell your house, instead of having it empty, it can be beneficial to have it professionally "staged" with high end, trendy furniture, place settings, drapes, paintings, etc. This helps buyers imagine the potential of the house, which can be difficult if the property is completely empty.
The problem with traditional staging is that it is very expensive, we're talking $2,000 - $2,500 per month for a 2,000 Sq Ft house. For more on this, read Who pays for staging a house?
Virtual staging uses augmented reality to digitally apply staging elements (i.e. furniture) into your professional real estate photographs. Virtual staging costs under $25 per photograph which is a huge savings compared to traditional staging.
