Estate Investors Should Use Virtual Staging to Sell or Rent Properties
Why use virtual staging?
While the pandemic has pushed many real estate agents to virtual showings, virtual staging was already a proven alternative to traditional staging. And there’s good reason to believe that it will stick around for the long term. Here’s some reasons you should consider using virtual staging tools like apps or staging software for your properties:
- It’s easy to use. Yes, there are companies that will virtually stage photos for you. But as with many things these days, there’s an app for that, too. If you’re not a tech wizard or an interior designer, virtual staging isn’t a deal breaker for you. As long as you can swipe and touch a screen or click and drag with a mouse, you can create a virtually staged image of any room in your vacant property.

- It’s cost-effective. Considering you have to pay each and every time you have a room staged in real life, this is a steal. Even if you go with a premium virtual staging service that also does 3D tours of a property, you’ll likely be able to stage TK
- You have more flexibility. You don’t have to stage an entire house to reap the benefits of virtual staging. You can pick and choose rooms you’d like to highlight in an online listing and stage those. The best part? Virtually stage a room once, keep the picture for as long as you need it. This is especially a great thing for rental property owners. You can set up a virtual model unit instead of giving up the rental income when you keep one empty in your building. It’s also great for landlords with smaller portfolios: You’ll actually be able to have a property ready for “viewing” at all times, even if there’s a tenant in the place.
