Home staging makes it easier for homeowners and agents to sell their properties. It allows buyers to visualise and gauge if a particular listing suits their lifestyle. By presenting a clearer view of the space, staging effortlessly captures the attention of home seekers by emphasising the main features of the listed home.
However, choosing the right type of staging for your home can significantly affect your potential buyer’s interest. Should you invite a stager over to redesign your space or depend on technology to transform its look?
Learn more about the two types of staging and decide which one works better for you and your home.
Traditional Staging involves hiring a professional stager to physically rearrange, remove or replace pieces of furniture before listing them up for sale. The process also includes cleaning and decluttering unsightly items.
Traditional staging companies rent furnishings and add fixtures to enhance your property’s face value. Some homeowners also rent a storage unit for their existing belongings that won’t be used for the property’s updated look.
While this type of staging shows buyers exactly how they can lay out their own furniture and what fits where it requires a large amount of money. Traditional staging also confines your choices to the limited styles available to the traditional staging company, making it harder for potential buyers to imagine the space in an interior design theme that they may prefer.
On the other hand, Virtual Staging uses highly realistic images to improve the appearance of a property. This type of staging allows owners to easily modify the look of their house, from changing wall colours and table decorations to shifting heavy furniture like sofas. It is also convenient and cost-efficient, taking a short time to prepare for listing.
The agents start by taking photos themselves or by engaging a professional photographer to take photos of the space to be listed. Then, the photos will be decorated with virtual furniture using 3D software, highlighting the benefits of the space. For example, if an apartment has huge windows, designers can easily draw up a version of the space that makes full use of the natural light, changing the wall colours without spending on costly repainting work.
Virtual staging is often used for vacant and barely furnished properties, but it is also a practical way to modernise and upgrade design elements. Since today’s living spaces are mostly advertised online, it also gives your house an edge over listings with empty shells, helping your potential buyers visualise the memories they will be making in their new home.
