Hi everyone. I'm a newbie and an IT geek. I've done IT all my career and now stepping into the world of real estate. I've looked up this topic and have a keen interest in it. Looking for anyone who has experience in the technology, to give advice, insight and hopefully guidance in the right direction.
@Mark Pegus did you find what you were seeking?
Hey Mark, I just came across your post - I run a virtual staging and rendering company here in New York. Traditional staging is a great way to fill a space and take excellent marketing pictures. However, it is very pricey and therefore a barrier to entry for a lot of folks. Virtual staging is a great, less expensive option and will definitely increase appointments to show the property. Unfortunately, once the prospects enter the house, you have the issue of empty space. What we've done is utilize tablets to bring to walk-throughs (one for each prospective client) and the agents go through each room with the tablets on-hand so clients can visualize better. We also sometimes do 2-3 designs per room to give them multiple vision options. Traditional staging can run in the $1000's easily, especially if the house is on the market, compared to virtual staging at much less expensive rates. The biggest thing... The virtual modeler has to be really good... There is nothing worse than a poor virtual staging scene that looks cheap. Please reach out through PM with any other questions! Have a good one!
