Virtual Staging - What Say You?


Okay, so I guess Virtual Staging is becoming a real thing. I am not sure what I think about this just yet, so I figured I would open the discussion up and collect some thoughts!

Virtual Staging A Vacant Property

Unlike traditional staging where physical furniture is brought into a property to help potential buyers "see the potential for the space", virtual staging is where the online pictures of the property are photoshopped (yes, that is a word) to include virtual furniture and art. The CBC did a small feature on Spark, you can check it out below or listen right here.

*Sorry about the lame auto-play, I tried to disable that feature.

Shopping for a Property Online

Virtually Staging Properties - a pioneer in the virtual home staging industry makes the claim that "90% of home buyers search for their next home online" and that "85% of those buyers say that the photos are the most important factor".

So here it goes, if you would be so kind - please answer the following question in the comments section below!

What are your thoughts on virtually staging a property?

If you are a REALTOR®, please leave your name and feel free to make comments on the use of virtual staging in your local market. I plan on collecting some opinions from our social media connections and writing about the findings.
