Sometimes, staging a property is just not an option. I recently listed a $65,000 condo and the executor of the estate did not want to expend the funds to have the property professionally staged. The rooms in this unit are huge and without furniture and accessories, it is difficult to imagine the scale.
I read somewhere about virtual staging and approached the seller about utilizing this concept. With her approval, we had the condo virtually staged. Here are the before pictures I sent to the virtual staging company followed by the virtually staged photos.
The price? This 4-photo set was only $280. The cost to rent furniture for 3 months would have far, far exceeded this. Both the seller and I thought this was an exceedingly worthwhile investment since most searches for real estate begin on the Internet where you get one opportunity to make a good first impression.
