When a home seller or a real estate agent decides to use virtual staging, the person doing the virtual staging takes digital photos of the home (preferably about five feet above the ground) and adds in digital furniture. The property being virtually staged could be empty, or it could even be full of existing furniture, decorations, knick-knacks, and so on. Most virtual staging solutions offer a way to remove existing furniture and clutter. This will typically come at an added cost. The end result is that the virtual stager is able to add anything they want into the photos which can include new furniture, decorations and more. When the virtual staging has been completed the photos are given to the home seller or real estate agent for use in the MLS system, virtual tours, and any other marketing outlets they might be utilizing. The best virtually staged photos will entice a potential buyer to schedule a showing.
