Selling an empty home can be intimidating and a struggle to stage. Many home buyers prefer looking at fully furnished homes, as they can see the examples of the layouts of the house. Staging a home, the old fashion way, can cost sellers thousands of dollars and be very time-consuming. An empty home does not give buyers a clean visual, as it often appears musty or outdated. Unlike home staging, virtual staging promotes quick selling as well as a fast return. This is the main reason why virtual staging is rapidly gaining popularity!

Home staging requires a lot of planning and time to schedule. It requires a moving team, as well as the time it takes to set up and take away the furniture. There is not a guaranteed time frame for how long you will need the furniture, as there is no way to predict how long the house will take to sell. For virtual staging, all that is required is a good quality camera and an email address. You send the pictures of your empty house to the virtual staging company and you will typically get your newly furnished house in less than 48 hours!
It is no secret that home staging is an essential part of selling a home. Due to this factor, staging companies can influence their own market and mark up their prices for any reason. Interior designers, along with mover cost, will quickly increase marketing costs. Home staging is not just one set cost. You have to factor in the square feet of the house, how many rooms there are to stage, and the amount of time needed to rent the furniture. You can risk only staging a home for a week of open houses, but the likelihood that the house sells in that short period of time is pretty low. Along with the time save, virtual staging is the way to go if your budget is running low. According to industry experts, virtual staging has been proven to be 90% less expensive than traditional home staging. It is a no brainer with these statistics in mind!
Home buyers often browse homes in the comfort of their bed scrolling endlessly through listings.
