How Long Does it Take to Virtually Stage a Home?

February (1) _ How Long Does It Take to Virtually Stage a Home-

Why you Should Stage Your Home Before Selling

Virtual home staging provides a cost-effective solution to sellers as an alternative to physically staging a home. According to the National Association of Realtors, over 90% of home buyers are looking for their next home online and 85% of those buyers say it’s the photos that are the most critical factor when deciding to view a home with their agent. Showcasing photographs of vacant rooms deters these buyers for several reasons. Vacant rooms appear smaller and don’t offer the same warmth as professionally staged settings, and additionally, most buyers cannot envision a room’s potential without the presence of staged furniture. This effect on buyers ultimately results in lower offers and adds to the time the home remains on the market – something that no real estate agent or seller wants!

The Downside of Physical Staging

Physically staging a home requires time and effort many sellers don’t have. It also creates an additional cash expense that a large percentage of individuals are unable to afford after factoring in other costs associated with selling a home. To stage a home, an up-front consultation with a professional stager is required to begin the process. After a consultation, the seller can expect to pay an additional $2,000 – $3,000 for a moderate staging of a vacant home. In most cases, contracts with professional stagers require a three month-minimum regardless of the length of time it takes to sell the home.
