You have decided to sell your house. You made your fair share of memories in it and now it is time for another family to make theirs. So, you want to transfer some of that positive experience in the way you are going to showcase the house to the potential buyers. How can you do that? There are two ways: by actual staging it and by virtual staging it. Let’s discuss the two.
In the past, when technology wasn’t as advanced as it is today and the Internet wasn’t as developed concept as today, home selling was a bit different. Real agencies would hire a staging company that would stage the whole house, focusing on the living room, as it is the room where most of the time is spent and shared with guests. The potential buyer would come on when are open house days and see it, explore it and get introduced to the idea of it being a possible future home for them.
Today, real estate agencies continue to use this method to showcase the selling houses. However, looking for home staging furniture for sale is not an easy and effortless task to do. It is a process that involves lots of time, money and decisions regarding design, style and decorative elements so that the house looks perfect when potential buyers come to see it in person.
If it is not an easy task for real estate agencies to do, then imagine how hard it is for the individual realtors or even for the common people who try to sell their house on their own.
Fortunately for everyone involved in the process of selling, the other way of showcasing a house is much easier to manage and costs about 90% less than using home staging furniture for sale. It is the service called virtual staging provided by a virtual staging designer. Here is what is so great about it.
Virtual staging is a technique with which a photo of vacant space is digitally enhanced and completely furnished. The virtual staging designer will put furniture, decorative details and even personalised items in the photo so that the whole visual perspective of the room is welcoming, inviting and appealing to the potential buyers.
The fact that the majority of people start their search for their future home online is a reason plus to go for the virtual staging service as it can showcase many different potentials the house has. With virtual staging, you can design the house in any design you want and have separate pictures of each of the styles so you can target people with different tastes in design. Of course, people will be aware that what they are looking at is only a possible option and the house doesn’t go with all of that furniture and other elements. Instead, they will know that they are looking at the way their future home could look like and even use some of the ideas and implement them if they decide to buy the house.
Virtual staging is very convenient – as the service is paid per photo and it costs from $30 and up depending on the package you want. You don’t need to do anything except provide the photos of the vacant space and maybe choose the furniture from the digital library or give some instructions regarding the design. This means, no looking for home staging furniture for sale, no dealing with companies for renting furniture and no tackling money issues. Then, you wait for a day or two and receive the photos in a digital form, ready to be put on the net to start advertising the house.
In conclusion, both of the ways are used today, and both are popular. However, if you are looking for a more efficient and faster way of appealing to the potential buyers, then virtual staging is your ideal solution.
