Make Your Home Stand Out with Virtual Staging
First impressions are everything when listing your home for sale. Experienced sellers know that home staging is an essential part of the home selling process. A well staged home can make all the difference in the number of days a property is on the market or receiving your full asking price.
As technology continues to advance, it’s more and more common for sellers to opt for virtual home staging over traditional home staging. With its ability to help buyers visualize themselves within a space, while still allowing buyers to see the full potential of an unfurnished home, virtual staging can be a useful tool for both new builds and long-standing properties.
What is Virtual Staging?
Virtual staging is the process of digitally furnishing and decorating a home to make it more appealing to potential buyers. Virtual home staging designers use computer-generated images to create a realistic representation of a space.
How Does Virtual Staging Work?
The virtual staging process begins with taking high-quality photos of the empty rooms in a home. These photos are then sent to a virtual staging company, where they are digitally enhanced and furnished. The final images are then provided to the homeowner or real estate Broker to use in their marketing materials.
Virtual Staging for Your Summit County Property
Virtual staging can offer home sellers a competitive edge, especially in a resort market. As the Summit County market continues to grow in desirability, virtual staging can be especially beneficial for empty new builds or homes that haven’t been updated since their original build that may be difficult for buyers to envision as their own.
Why Use Virtual Staging for Your Resort Market Home:
1. Showcase Your Homes Potential: Virtual staging can help second homeowners showcase the full potential of their property to interested buyers. By virtually staging the home with high-quality furniture and decor, sellers can create a visually appealing representation of how the space can be utilized without overwhelming buyers who are often in town to tour multiple properties in a short period of time.
2. Cost and Time Effective: Traditional home staging can be expensive, especially in a resort market like Summit County. During high demand buying seasons, inventory is not always guaranteed, and sellers may end up waiting weeks for furnishing to become available. Without the need for furniture to be physically present in the home, virtual staging eliminates any wait time, allowing your Broker to start marketing your home sooner.
3. Flexibility: Virtual staging allows second sellers to provide potential buyers with different styles and layouts to help them understand all the possibilities the space offers. Your virtual staging designer can easily change the staging options to cater to different target audiences and amplify the versatility of your property.
4. Remote Management: Virtual staging can be a useful tool for remotely managing the staging process if you’re not able to be physically present at the property to oversee staging crews moving furniture in and out of your home.
