What is Virtual Staging & How Does It Work?
The concept of real staging is very old and has been used by real estate agents since the 1970’ss. Despite being in use, many home sellers, home buyers, and real estate agents till now are not able to conceptualize this concept. Therefore, this concept needs to be defined properly, as it can give a boom to the property.
The term Virtual Staging basically means adding the furniture and decor digitally to a picture of the property so as to increase the appeal and value of the property.
What role is being played by the 3-D Software and gaming technologies?
Top virtual staging companies do use 3-D software and gaming technologies so as to make the furniture indistinguishable from the physical furniture. For instance, the potential buyers sometimes are very confused about the actual size and the potential of the property. It is difficult for them to make a decision. Virtually staged pictures make it very easy for homebuyers to easily realize the full potential of the space or the home. Virtual staging makes the buyers excited about the size of the space, its intended use of it, and its true potential of the space.

Likewise, there can be chances when you have seen only the actually virally staged rooms online, and that too without realizing it.

It would prevent agents and buyers from feeling like something was actually missing. However, it is very important that the home you are going to sell should be vacant even without the virtual staging.

Less Virtual staging cost – The cost of virtual staging is quite literally a small fraction of the cost of traditionally staging a home.
Easy and Convenient – You do not need to move one item in the entire property so as to compete with the virtual staging. With the concept of virtual staging, the process of making furniture out and bringing the new furniture can become a massive undertaking that drives the cost up.
