Staging it Virtually......Putting the Best House Forward

By
Real Estate Agent with EXP Realty 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

   Somewhere in real estate history there is a statistic that says about 95% of all people have no "spacial/color imagination." That  may be paraphrasing a bit....basically....empty rooms...different colored walls...landscape changed...wallpaper gone...whatever the change that would make a difference in how a propery shows is difficult for most people to imagine. 

    The questions continue...would the couch fit here...what size bed goes there...how many people could sit at the table. Virtual Staging helps take the guesswork out of these questions. We have a new listing and will have several that are coming up that for a variety of Seller circumstances, we find virtual staging to be the best answer for spacial imagination questions...AND for putting the best house forward. YES we do have a "watermark" and YES we do have pictures at the house to help the vision for potential buyers.

    Our new listing...going LIVE is at 623 Glenview in Wauwatosa gln living roomWisconsin and rather that have a piece of furniture here and there...we staged the batha and kitchen and had other rooms staged virtually.This is a large living room and now Buyers can easily the conversation areas and and furniture sizes that are possible in this room.

    The master bedroom is a great size and has a fireplace as well...this gln mstr bedvirtually staged picture gives Buyers some concept of the space a bed would take up in this room.

    Wauwatosa has many traditional colonials with formal dining rooms...and people want to know how many people will fit comfortably at the table. This picture shows them exactly that and thereGln dining room is no question about the guests that can sit in this formally appointed room when entertainment is the event of the day.

    Wisconsinites absolutely LOVE finished lower levels it becomes an expected feature with all kinds of entertaining possibilities..from rec rooms and kitchens to bedrooms and offices, the lower level becomes a LIVING level and not gln rec rmjust a place to store holiday decorations. This lower level has a number of entertaining areas...a hot tub and sauna and a den office ...this large rec room also offers options for other entertainment and is virtually staged. Here is how the rec room looked without staging...a barren  empty spacegln rec rm Now...here it is virtually staged and part of the "entertainment central" theme of the lower level. Virtual staging takes the mystery out of spacial orientation and is a welcome addition to the home's presentation to the market.

     We take this presentation a couple steps further...We have a colored brochure at the house that shows the interior of the house AND a picture in each room of the virtual staging to reference the furnished look as buyers tour the property.

   Sellers in southeastern Wisconsin know that Sally K. & David L. Hanson, Broker Associates with EXP Realty, LLC ,work hard at putting our clients "best house forward" and our efforts pay off with the great prices that they get for their homes.

Once while I was inspecting bedroom windows a realtor decided to sit on the staged bed.  It was a blow-up bed, not real, and she tumbled completely backwards.  Her dress went completely over her head!  I calmly helped her up and continued with the windows...

Sally/David, I have never used virtual staging, but through your photos I can see how it completely changed the look of that basement. Not everyone can visualize how big a room is without the furniture. Your photos certainly help.

Good morning, Sally K. & David L. Hanson we love to use virtual staging in our vacant homes.... the team members actually have open house events with still frames of the first floor rooms blow up to a large size and displayed on an easel.... works well for us....

I have never tried virtual staging before, but I am sure it is helpful for those that cannot imagine how rooms will come together in homes that they like and are empty.

Hi Sally K. & David L. Hanson - I have always found this very intriguing.  I have a home that will be vacant very soon and I will want to do this. Funny thing is, I was thinking of this yesterday! I am going to look into this. Thank you!

Hi Sally... I'm all about virtual staging... my experience is that most people have absolutely no vision or imagination when they see an empty room. Empty rooms also don't translate well on the web where we do so much of our marketing these days.

Hi Sally and David- when I first heard of virtual staging I was intrigued and still am. I knew someone who had a team that could do this but at the time it was pretty expensive. That said, I think it beats the heck out of dragging in furniture which is very expensive. And yes, you have to have large pictures in the rooms that have been virtually staged.
