Virtual staging shares a lot of benefits with traditional staging but it also offers some unique ones as well. Let’s start with the more obvious benefits.
One of the first benefits is the fact that it allows a home to sell much faster than it otherwise would.
As previously mentioned, having a staged home will make the property much more likely to sell a week or more sooner, which allows you to focus your attention on selling other properties and earning even more commissions.
Another important benefit is that virtual staging is able to open the door for homebuyers to visualize themselves living there. This is important because very few people simply go to open houses
without researching a property online. In fact, 90 percent of people start the process of searching for their next home by looking online.
Therefore, you’re going to need to have spectacular photos that are able to help convince buyers to come and look at the property in person or even make an offer based simply on the online profile. This is
something that virtual staging can help with by creating personalized interior and exterior scenes that make it easier for potential buyers to visualize themselves living there.
Now for some benefits that are unique to virtual staging. One of the biggest is the fact that it is able to help save a significant amount of money. While traditional staging often costs upwards of $400, you can get professional virtual staging for less than half of this cost. This means more money remains in your pocket while you earn more money from property overall.
Another huge benefit to virtual staging is the fact that you can do so much more than just decorate a property. With traditional staging, you are essentially limited to adding furniture and other decorative items to a room. However, virtual staging can alter so much more than this.
Not only can you add elegant furniture and other decorations to any room, but you can also remove unwanted clutter, adjust lighting conditions, and even recolor any wall or floor. This means that you get the exact look that you are going for each and every time.
We can talk all day about how good virtual staging is but an example is worth a thousand words. That’s why we’ve gathered a few of the latest examples of how our virtual staging efforts have helped realtors sell their properties in only a fraction of the time that it would normally take.
Even during this pandemic, Bob was able to find success and sell his property extremely fast with the help of our virtual staging services. In fact, he was able to do 12 showings and received four different offers within the first three days of the property being on the market. It ended up selling for an impressive $5,000 over the original asking price, which is even more impressive when you consider that this happened much sooner than the average of 45 days that it takes to get an offer in Texas.
“I sent you five photos for virtual staging and one other for a color enhancement. I got the staged photos a day later, Saturday, and asked for mostly minor changes. I got the edited photos Sunday morning. The house finally went on the MLS on Sunday afternoon. In the next three days, we had 12 showings and four offers. We signed an offer Wednesday night, about $5,000 over the listing price. Zillow shows about 1,800 views of my listing from Sunday through Wednesday and about 200 total for ‘similar listings.’ I think the virtual staging accounts for a lot of that, so thank you!”
In Wisconsin, the average amount of time to get an offer on a property is 65 days. However, by using our virtual staging services, Barb was able to sell her property within only two days after listing it. And during this time, she received not just one but four different offers.
“I was extremely impressed with VS24. I remember showing a property a few months ago that had furniture staging in a vacant home and both my buyers and I were very impressed with the photos. Staging a home can be expensive and, even then, options for different uses of the same vacant room cannot be accomplished with staging only one way.
When I was re-listing a vacant home that didn’t sell over the winter, I contacted that agent that had virtual staging on one of his listings and asked where he obtained his virtual staging photos! He led me to YOU, VS24.
The pricing and service from VS24 were phenomenal and photos are extremely impressive!! A great way to stage in any market and wonderful in this Covid-19 market as well! After receiving the staged photos (YES, in 24hrs or less!), we brought the home back on the market and had an accepted offer within 72 hours!!
Thank YOU VS24 for your excellent service and photos!!! I have already recommended you to several agents locally who were impressed by the photos. They are all impressed and ready to use your services SOON!”
After listing the property with our expertly-crafted virtual staging photos, Farhad was able to sell the home in
only three days. Compared to the 42 days that it typically takes to get an offer in California, Farhad closed
this deal much faster and saved a ton of money and effort in the process.
“I want to thank you for a job well done. I sold the house 3 days after listing it. The virtual staging looked great.
I will contact you for future listings.”
After using our services earlier this summer, Srini was able to put the virtual staging images online and received an
offer for the property in less than 24 hours afterward. This is only a small fraction of the 38 days that it would
normally take to get an offer in Virginia.
“VS24's virtual staging was fantastic...the listing sold in a day.”
Like many other realtors on this list, David was able to find quick success with our virtual staging photos of his Idaho property. But makes this example even more impressive is the fact that it had multiple offers within three days, which is much faster than the 34 days it typically takes to get a single offer in Idaho.
“You have a great service and the product was perfect. Sold the house in three days with multiple offers.”
