When one makes a decision to buy a home, one factor emerges as one of the most important upon which all the future decisions will be made. This factor is visualisation. Perhaps it isn’t among the top 5 factors on your list and perhaps you wonder why I say it is an integral part of the decision making process. Of course, explanations follow. Just ask yourself this: regardless of the decision you are going to make in any aspect of your life what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you try to imagine your future?
The answer would be a visualisation of yourself, your career prospect, or your life altogether. Mental images come first, and then you try to shape them into a reality that suits your best interests. The same goes for choosing a home: you need to see it, visualise it and then make a decision whether you are going to buy the house or not. That’s why the virtual staging service plays a vital role in the real estate industry. Let’s get into more details now.
Virtual staging is a service offered by virtual staging agencies where they transform your vacant space in your room into a fully furnished room, designed in a preferred style and with lots of decorative finishing touches. It is a technique that helps the potential buyer visualise their future home in a number of ways. Here is how.
Visualisation of the Future Home
As mentioned before, virtual staging offers the potential buyer a chance to connect to the house that is selling, by offering them an image of how it can look like. Of course, the offer is in a digital form but if it is quality done it can raise the interest even after the first glance at the photo. In fact, it is a digital preview of the home so the potential buyer can consider different options in the first phase of the buying process.
Another important thing is that almost 90% of the buyers begin their search for a future home online so; virtual staging can provide them much more insight into the options before going to see the place in person.
Visualisation of the Opportunities
Apart from a preview, the potential buyer gets to see more than one design of the same room, designed and styled according to their preferences. Thus, virtual staging can transform the room into a mid-century, contemporary, Scandinavian, urban or industrial design. Having all of the options can really persuade the potential buyer to make a faster decision and the realtor to close the deal.
Visualisation of the Exterior
Virtual staging services can be done for the exterior part of the house as well. It will improve the curb appeal and make the property far more appealing. If it is done under the right lighting conditions at twilight it will present the house even more welcoming. If the weather and lighting conditions don’t allow that, there is another service that prompts the wanted warmth – virtual twilight. It is also a virtual staging service that does wonders for the whole presentation of the property.
