If you are serious about selling your home, you may want to consider hiring someone to stage your home. However, you may not know what that really means (and entails).
So, what is home staging?
Home staging is done to make your home look more appealing to buyers. Home staging companies will come into your home and rearrange your furniture to work with your home’s layout. They may also add furniture (especially in empty homes) and some subtle touches to make your home look like it belongs in a magazine.
What are Virtual Home Staging Companies?
Virtual home staging companies allow buyers to stage their homes to appeal to a wider variety of home buyers. They will take pictures of your home and digitally add furniture and subtle touches to show buyers what your home could look like. They use technology that is very realistic.
What are the benefits of hiring a virtual home staging company?
There are many reasons why you need to hire a virtual home staging company. These include:
- According to the National Association of Realtors, staged homes are more likely to sell. In fact, seventy-seven percent of buyers can see themselves actually living in a home that was staged. Thirty-one percent of buyers are willing to spend more on a home that was staged.
- For homes that are virtually staged, you can expect more showings. Forty percent of potential buyers will want to take a closer look at a staged home that they saw online.
Why wouldn’t you hire a virtual home staging company?
