Did you know that 77% of buyers’ agents reported that staging made it easier for their clients visualize the property as a future home? Additionally, buyers are 40% more likely to walk through a home that they saw online if it is staged. This is why many sellers opt to stage their homes before putting them on the market.
For those that don’t know, staging is the practice of styling and furnishing a property to make it more attractive to buyers. Traditionally, a professional stager will come to your house and use their own props to fill up a vacant home, or add accents to pre-existing furnishings. With the costs varying by location and stager, the price for staging can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars depending on the size of your home.
For many, staging adds an extra expense to the often costly process of fixing up one’s home before selling. This is where virtual staging comes in: For a fraction of the cost, you can present your property on the Internet with virtually rendered furnishings and decorations. Here is a before-and-after example of a client’s home, which we virtually staged before putting it on the market.
With 99% of Millennials, 89% of Older Boomers and 77% of the Silent Generation searching online for real estate, a majority of buyers will see your property on the internet before seeing it in person.
