Virtual staging, like traditional staging, is virtually decorating the key rooms in your home to showcase its best features and qualities and make it more attractive to potential buyers.
But as the name implies, virtual staging is done with a computer. There is no actual furniture, area rugs, potted plants or other décor involved. Virtual staging digitally inserts furniture and accessories into high-resolution photos to show what the room could look like, which often helps potential buyers visually place their furniture in your home.
If you are planning to put your house on the market this year, it goes without saying that you are hoping to sell your home as quickly as possible and get the best price. Set the stage for success with these 21 tips for styling and upgrading your home, and to see results — fast.
Virtual staging won’t work for all homes – in many cases, traditional staging is a superior choice. However, it can be a huge benefit if it’s done properly in:
• Vacant homes• Homes with outdated furniture• Properties with tenants in them, which leave the homeowner little control over the space’s appearance
If you still occupy your home and you can stage it to make it as appealing as possible to potential buyers, whole-house virtual staging isn’t for you. (You can still virtually stage some rooms if you and your agent think it’s appropriate, though.)
