Why will it Increase Home Sale Price?
Always remember, buying a home tends to come down to intangibles and gut feelings. Although it is a massive investment, the ultimate decisions to purchase or pass come down to emotional reasons-- making it essential to have excellent photos of your home on your listing. Even if your home is older or needs repairs, the emotion will carry them through to make an offer if you can convince the buyer of the home’s potential.
All of these factors contribute to a fast sale at your asking price (or hopefully well above). The time and effort you invest into an excellent listing will undoubtedly translate to real dollars in your sale, and virtual staging allows you to invest the least for the highest ROI.
Why Virtual Staging Over Other Options?
You may be wondering why you need to stage your home at all and why you wouldn’t go with a traditional stager if you choose to use one.
The data over decades shows that homes that list for the right price the first time sell faster at a higher price than homes priced too high that eventually lower prices. While you technically don’t need to stage your home, your listing is much more likely to attract attention if viewers can imagine themselves in your space. Speaking from experience, it can be difficult for people to feel at home when they have to see past custom paint colors, clutter, minor damages, or outdated homes.
Now, you may choose to go with a traditional stager-- however, they will not be able to solve all of these problems for you, it will take more effort on your part, and it will likely cost more. In addition, traditional staging typically only covers what is put into the room, so there will be no fixes for paint choices, chipped wood, etc. Finally, traditional staging will require you to remove all possessions from the space.
If you are moving before selling already, this may be a good fit for you. However, many home sellers can’t buy their own house until closing on the sale of their existing property. You will save a lot of time and stress by simply delivering quality pictures of a clean home with your things still in it, and then allow the virtual stager to remove your items and stage anew.
Keep in mind that these strategies also work for those creating listings for rentals as well, whether it be apartments or homes.
What Does it Cost?
Virtual staging jobs can be billed in various ways, including per picture, per room, and per hour. With VINTEREX, you don’t need to worry about an obscure budget, as each project includes a free consultation before entering a contract.
On the other hand, traditional staging can cost anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. It all depends on how much furniture you need (more for larger homes) and how long you need the furniture. Some prefer to leave staged rooms for home tours, which will cost more.
What to Expect?
If you decide to take advantage of the time and money savings while returning a higher sales price on your home through virtual staging, here’s what you should expect.
First, you will need to have high-quality pictures taken of your entire home, including the exterior if it's applied. While it is unnecessary to move all your possessions from the house, the better you can clean, the easier the job for the designer. You’ll especially want to clean well if the stager is billing per hour, as every task they need to erase and rebuild will take them longer to do well.
You may want to hire a professional real estate photographer to take your photos. Viewers can often tell the difference between professional and amateur photos, and it really does make a difference. For example, professionals will nail proper lighting and focus. If designers have to work with dark photos, it will be hard to incorporate new elements and appear natural. Plus, dark or unfocused images simply don’t sell.
Next, you’ll choose a virtual staging company. As we mentioned earlier, we offer a free consultation at the beginning of your project. This initial meeting will allow our team of professional digital artists and interior designers the chance to talk with you or your realtor about the target demographic for your home, work out a budget, and a timeline for delivery.
All you have to do then is sit back and wait for your professional to complete the virtual staging. Then, you can check this off your list and move on to other important tasks when selling a home.
