From residential properties to commercial real estate, virtual staging is the latest trend turning heads.
Why is virtual staging so beneficial? It all comes down to cost and convenience. Virtual staging offers a much more advantageous alternative to traditional staging.
In general, staging has proven to help homes sell faster and for more money, while staging has also improved sales and marketing efforts for multifamily. Statistics tell us that 83% of prospects find it easier to visualize a property as their own when it is staged.
Virtual staging has also proven to save marketers and agents money in the long run. For example, traditional staging requires a lot of upfront costs such as consultation fees and renting furniture for only a short period of time.
Virtually staged images, however, have quite a long shelf-life, especially if you're in the multifamily industry. If you work with in luxury multifamily or Class A properties, costs become even more steep for traditional staging services.
With virtual staging, you get to use these images indefinitely while also renting out all of your units (yes, this means even your model units that sit there vacant can be rented out for a monthly fee).
While pricing for some virtually staged images can be a sticker shock at first, it's important to remember the shelf life of this kind of product, the time it saves, and the money it helps make.
It's also key to remember: you get what you pay for. It's easy to mess up virtual staging if you don't hire the right 3D team with the right technology or experience. Digital furniture can easily look clunky or cartoonish, but the key is to find virtual staging services that deliver a photorealistic product. You want elements that contain realistic shadows and details that look like the real thing; after all, you're replacing traditional staging with virtual staging and the goal is to get the same product while increasing ROI.
That's why we're here—to show you that virtual staging can really be the end-all-be-all for your luxury staging needs. The product can look just as real as a staged room that's been photographed.
Below is a list of some of our best luxury virtual staging examples that we believe you'll fall in love with.
