Using virtual real estate staging to help sell listings is now commonplace and buyers are not only used to seeing it — they are coming to expect it.

Virtual real estate staging allows buyers to see the best uses for rooms and spaces and helps them visualize themselves living in the home.

But there are many virtual real estate staging services — how do you know which one to choose?

To help you decide, in this article, we’ll present you with the top 7 virtual real estate staging solutions. 

Virtual Real Estate Staging Motivates Buyers

The flexibility and affordability of virtual real estate staging enable you to present to potential buyers how a home looks in different furnishings and design themes. 

Sometimes regular photos don’t allow buyers to easily visualize the best use, layout, and style options for a given property or room. After all, most buyers aren’t trained in interior design. 

But with virtual staging, you can make your buyers feel like they are working with a skilled design professional.

For example, do you have interested buyers, but they’re hesitating and unsure? Help them reach a decision by highlighting the full value of the home.

Use virtual staging to quickly show them:

  • The bedrooms, dining room, and family room in different, attractive design themes
  • How the loft looks remodeled 
  • And various backyard layouts with patio and deck areas

Undoubtedly, virtual staging can make any home look stunning — helping you to persuade serious buyers to finally write the offer.

However, a note — bigger isn’t always better.

BoxBrownie caters to larger, commercial real estate groups, meaning medium and average-sized real estate sales professionals are likely to get lost in the mix and not receive focused, individual customer support.

Stuccco homepage

Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, Stuccco is a virtual real estate staging provider with a twist.

Do note, however, they cater to high-end homeowners offering them sophisticated interior design options that are slightly expensive, but still more affordable than traditional home staging.

For example, here are 6 of Stuccco’s virtual staging design styles:

Another thing to keep in mind —  their price tag can easily grow since they charge extra for any custom work or other photo editing extras.
