There are virtual assistants, paperless transactions and now virtual staging. What is virtual staging?
I had to do a little homework surfing the net to make sure I understood virtual staging because you see, virtual staging is not really there. It is real estate "make believe." It is more akin to a blueprint to a house. Everybody knows the blueprint is NOT the house. It is just a plan. On the other hand, the MLS photos are guaranteed to look great and there is no heavy lifting of furniture involved. That may be the best part that there will be no heavy lifting of furniture, no moving of furniture in and out of the house, no interminable waits for the rental furniture to deliver or pick up. No heavy lifting sounds great particularly since I have had a recent onset of lower back pain.
You see virtual staging is VIRTUAL.
Now that's profound! Virtual means that you will see the furniture on the photos on the MLS, but when you show the house, it will be the same letdown you have the day after Christmas when there are no more presents to open and all the dirty dishes are still in the sink. It was a pretty picture on the MLS but where is it in real life? So Sorry, So Sad not there any more. Does a Realtor really want a sad, disappointed client? Just another lonely, empty room that I don't think all that furniture in the photo would have fit in here anyway.
