Step 7: Staging Specifics (Virtual)

How do you virtually stage a living room?

Virtually staging a living room involves selecting digital furniture and decor that complement the space's dimensions and natural light. Start by choosing a focal point, such as a fireplace or a large window, and arrange furniture around it in a way that maximizes the flow of the room. Utilize software that allows for customization of items to match the room’s style, ensuring the staged living room is both inviting and realistic.

How do you stage a bedroom for pictures?

When staging a bedroom for pictures, create a calm, welcoming atmosphere. A neatly made bed, with simple, attractive bedding, is key. Add in a few decorative touches, such as pillows or a throw, but avoid showing personal items and clutter. Portray the room as well-lit, with natural-looking light if possible.

How to stage a house for realtor photos?

To stage a house for realtor photos, focus on decluttering and cleaning thoroughly so you have a nice blank canvas to work with. Starting with a clean, uncluttered space is essential for virtual staging. Also consider minor repairs or upgrades that could improve the overall appearance of photos (and minimize editing), like upgrading lighting fixtures or touching up cracks in the walls.

What is the best order for real estate photos?

The best order for real estate photos typically starts with the exterior of the home, followed by common areas like the living room and kitchen, then bedrooms and bathrooms, and ends with any special features or outdoor spaces. This sequence helps tell a story, guiding potential buyers through the home virtually.

Does staging include painting?

In traditional physical staging, painting can be a recommended step to refresh the home and make it more appealing. In virtual staging, wall colors can be altered digitally to show the potential of a space without the need for physical painting.

How do you take good staging pictures?

Taking good staging pictures requires a quality camera, proper lighting, and an understanding of angles. Photograph each room at eye level, using natural light when possible, and avoid using wide-angle lenses that can distort the room's proportions.

How do I choose art for staging?

Select art that complements the room's color scheme and style, aiming for pieces that are neutral and appealing to a broad audience. Avoid personal or controversial artwork to maintain a universally appealing aesthetic.



Step 8: Professional Virtual Staging Services

How much does virtual staging cost per photo?

Costs can vary widely but expect to pay anywhere from $25 to $100 per photo for professional virtual staging services. Prices depend on the complexity of the project and the reputation of the staging company.

When should I hire a professional to virtually stage my house?

Hiring a professional for virtual staging is advisable when:

  • You lack the time or skills to do it yourself effectively.
  • The property’s listing would significantly benefit from high-quality, realistic staging to stand out in competitive markets.
  • You want to showcase multiple design options to appeal to a wider range of buyer tastes.
  • The cost of hiring a professional is justified by the potential increase in the property's selling price or decreased time on the market.

A professional virtual stager can provide a level of quality and realism in the staging that can greatly enhance the appeal of your property to potential buyers, making it a worthwhile investment in many cases.
