What is virtual staging?

Virtual staging is what is sounds like. It’s digital furniture that’s added to empty rooms in order to make them look better.

There’s a few reasons why sellers do this. One is the cost. Adding a fake couch and some chairs costs about $30 a picture. Real staging can cost thousands of dollars.

Another reason to virtually stage? You’ll get more buyers in the door that way. People will be just more interested in a staged home even if the furniture isn’t real.

One drawback to virtual staging? people may expect real furniture when they walk in the door. And some people really need to be shown what their home could like rather than being told to just imagine it.
