I photographed a home on Saturday up in the Sandia mountains east of Albuquerque where I live. When I got there I did not really notice that the living room curtains were up and had not been dropped down for a more natural look. Fighting the snow to get into the vacant home I shot it without noticing the drapes.
Later that afternoon when I got home I received the dreaded email from the agent. “The pictures would have been perfect had the curtains looked right.” So I am thinking… like 3 hours minimum to drive back up, deal with the snow, reshoot and do post again.
I had a brilliant idea! Redo the living room with some virtual staging and send her a few of those pics. Would take me 30 minutes and I remain on my couch! Long story short, the agent was blown away at the creativity of my solution and loved it.
So, the cool thing here is that we can use the virtual staging software for some editing of things that don’t convey with the house such as furniture, pictures, plants and accessories.
To do this with your RTV virtual staging software however we have to get past first base. That’s right… straightening and calibration is the dreaded step one of this staging platform. So I did a 5 minute recap on the webinar in December and will do a quick recap again next time. Each webinar I will take my 5 minutes to take it just a bit further. While a couple of things have changed on the platform the calibration and straightening features are still similar. Please take a moment to watch this 5 minute training video to help with uploading and calibration.
The other thing I went over on the virtual staging webinar was how to change the height of wall items such as TV’s and pictures. Once you are staging the picture you can always go to upper left menu and click on “recalibrate” and raise or lower the ceiling height. If you raise the ceiling height in the numerical field then items will drop lower in the picture. Likewise if you lower ceiling height in the numerical field it will raise wall items. If the furniture in general looks too large in the room… just raise the ceiling height. On a personal note, I generally like to set the ceiling height at approximately 12 inches or more higher than it actually is (but that is just my preference).
I am happy to help any of you at any time with questions as you get into staging your vacant properties.
RTV has had thousands of homes staged by their photographers in the few months they have offered virtual staging to their virtual tour photographers. They have examples if you have not staged any yet. Give sellers and agents a choice and watch your income increase.
To help launch this we will be continuing a bi-weekly contest on the RTV Facebook page for the best virtually staged home. The weekly winner will receive 20 free credits to stage 2 rooms for free! Stay tuned for the contest details next week.

The hard-working elves at Rockpointe Marketing are pleased to announce the latest RPM marketing piece. This month we are featuring a double-sided, “Section 333 FAA Approved” aerial drone photography flyer! For those of you out there that have gone through the process of securing your section 333 waiver this is a must have piece. It’s perfect for e-mailing and for those of you that like to do print marketing, this makes a perfect customizable 8 x 10 flyer for you to mail or distribute as an office leave behind. With the FAA tightening down on rules and regulations it’s vital for you to show that you’re FAA Approved and registered. This is the perfect piece that will do just that.
Drone photography has become very popular with realtors who want to showcase their listings in a visually stunning way. Unfortunately as drone use has become more popular, air craft and citizens safety has become a growing concern. The FAA now requires anyone using a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle aka drone) for commercial purposes to attain approval, and only allows licensed pilots to fly these aircrafts. Photographers who have secured this waiver and are able to hire a certified pilot are in a unique position of offering this service. This flier will allow those photographers to highlight their certification and offers potential clients a limited time offer for aerial photography services at a discounted price. Photos and videos taken with UAV’s look exceptional in our virtual tour platform.
