Selling your home is probably the most important decision you could make. There are two rules that you need to perform if you want to sell your property fast: price it well, and stage it well. The appearance of the house should reflect the purchasing price.
Properties are considered consumer products on the market. And a product’s appearance should be aesthetically pleasing and illustrate the value. In other words, quality impressions. No one wants to buy a product that is a mess and visually unappealing with too many furniture around or floors that needed to be polished.
One common mistake first-time seller and real estate agents do is ignoring how to draw attention and influence the ease of categorization of the property. Potential buyers become interested in a home when they feel comfortable and imagine it as their home. That is why home staging is important - one of the best-proven methods for a quick home sale.
Home staging is basically decorating your property, de-cluttering, positioning furniture, and lighting. Now with technology, there is an option that does not involve paying so much and shifting heavy furniture around. The trend of Virtual staging has emerged as a cost-effective alternative to traditional staging, especially for vacant homes.
So how does it work?
It is a quick and easy process. Home stagers take digital pictures of empty rooms and then add different fixtures like carpets, couches, appliances, and other furnishings. With the help of photo-editing software, empty rooms can look like it’s been craftily designed.
Unlike traditional staging that can only pull off one style at a time, virtual staging can produce different home décor styles and convert rooms to different uses easily to appeal to many buyers making it one of the best methods of marketing knowing 90% of buyers search properties online. It is also noted that pictures of the properties are the most critical factor of home selling.
The best advantage of Virtual staging is the price. It is way cheaper than traditional home staging. Compared to digital staged properties, an actual home staging can cost you around $2,000 to $6,000 and the time it will take for a stager to finish furnishing. Virtual staging avoids renting expensive furniture and maintaining them while the property is on the market. Most virtual staging ranges around $50 to $300 per 1 staged photo. It is definitely cost and effective considering many staged houses spend less time on the market.
