Virtual staging. Fact or fiction?

Does virtual staging really meet customer’s expectations?

Let’s use figures first.

There is a 30% increase in web traffic to the listing page as a result of having a virtually staged photo as the feature photo, versus a vacant photo. Another huge uptick was a reported percentage increase in open house traffic after the images were replaced.

An AOL Money and Finance poll showed that 87% of buyers said home presentation makes the difference in most sales.

 “We were able to draw two offers within the first week and actually closed on the property in just 17 days, capturing 96% of its list price,” Liz Bankston of The Bankston Group.

More figures!

You can save up to $5 000 choosing Hasten’s virtual staging rather than ordinary home staging. Virtual staging doesn’t create the odd illusion when a customer comes to see the property. Moreover, it’s easier to show several options of different interiors than keep on moving-in and out the bulky furniture. It will take Hasten team from 2 days to stage the whole property completely. 

There may be an 82% sales increase.

Still doubt to use virtual staging?

Hasten guarantees 100% realism of the photos and charge only after a project is completed and a client as totally satisfied with the result.

Virtual staging unlocks the potential of the property by means of showing the possible interior solution for a customer. It helps to feel the atmosphere of home. Cozy interior is much more appealing than bare walls after all.
