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 2017 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.
The 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.
In a similar 2018 study, Home Staging Resource surveyed 4200 sold homes and discovered that 85% of staged homes sold for 6-25% more than unstaged homes.
Blue-Sketch Virtual Staging customers stage 3-5 photos on average. They invest $240-$400 for potentially a 5% increase in sales price. For a $250,000 listing this will be an additional $12,500 to be shared between the seller and the real estate agent.
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 may be additional price that will depend on the complexity of the work. Send us the picture and we’ll give you a price for decluttering.
How to order?
Simply upload your photographs of empty rooms and we will stage them digitally. Start on top of this page, add the photos you want staged,(click ‘Add to Cart’ button), then select Checkout. Our web-store will guide you to upload photos of empty rooms and select payment method (any major credit or debit card). You can store your credit card details for easy ordering in the future.
We will select the furniture based on the existing style of the house, or you may also provide ideas and requests. We’ll create a proposal for your approval before doing the final high quality renderings.
Don’t have photos? We can recommend a professional real estate photographer in your area, and send you the “How to take good photos for Virtual Staging” booklet.
Spice it up
Want to do something extra? Why not use the Smart Tags service to tag photos with labels or links on amenities, materials, appliances, etc. Wouldn’t it be awesome to be able to list all of the home’s beautiful features and details in one photo.
