Whether you’re just starting a real estate business or have been selling homes for a while, you probably already know the advantages of professionally staging a client’s home. According to a 2020 study by the National Association of Realtors, 82% of agents see that same benefit: a staged house makes it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home.
Is virtual staging worth it?
The short answer is yes, probably. With virtual staging, potential buyers will likely base a significant portion of their decision on the initial impression the virtual exposure gives them. That being said, physical staging tends to run considerably more expensive than the virtual alternative: HomeAdvisor estimates that it can cost as much as $1450 per month to furnish and stage the average home. With virtual staging, you’ll have the flexibility to pick and choose which services suit your needs—and your budget.
