Virtual Staging is an easy and cost-effective way to attract more people to open houses, shorten sales time, and increase the sales price.
Is it worth it?
According to the 2015 NAR Profile on Home Staging, 49 % of surveyed agents report most buyers are effected by home staging. In the same study, 32 % of buyers’ agents believe staged homes increases the dollar value buyers are willing to offer by one percent to five percent.
National Association of Realtors estimates the median dollar value to stage a home with real furniture is $675 for each home. However, that sum can accumulate quickly to thousands of dollars from additional monthly rental fees.
Blue-Sketch Virtual Staging customers stage 3-5 photos on average. They invest $150-$250 for potentially a 5% increase in sales price.
What’s a good photo for staging?
The best Virtual Staging result comes with professional DLSR photography, but it is not a must. We can stage photographs when the room is well lit, and shows at least one corner. The more floor space is visible the better. Horizontal shots work better than vertical. Order the “How to take good photos for Virtual Staging” booklet for more information.
Clutter in the room? We can remove unwanted furniture from a picture for a better result. There is an additional price that will depend on the complexity of the work. Send us the picture and we’ll give you a price for decluttering.

Spice it up
Want to do something extra? Why not use the Smart Tags service to tag a photo with text labels or links on kitchen cabinets, counter-top material, appliances, etc. Wouldn’t it be awesome to be able to list all of the home’s beautiful features and details in one photo.
