How much does virtual staging cost?

Virtual staging ranges in price and depends on the number of photos you wish to stage and if you need to declutter. Clients will spend anywhere from $30-$60 per photo which is a savings of over 90% compared with traditional staging.

How to do virtual staging?

Virtual staging is accomplished by utilizing powerful computer systems with software to create 3D furniture models in a 2D image. HD Estates trains virtual stagers for over 1-year and it takes on average two hours to produce one virtually staged photo. Our 3D designers take a 2D photo and measure lines to create a 3D space for furniture placement. After our team creates a 3D space we then use programs like Autodesk and Maya to place 3D objects into the space. The next step is to create realistic lighting in the 3D space which will create highlights and shadows of all the furniture to make the image look realistic. When the artist has completed all of these steps we will render the 3D image to a 2D output with a high powered computer.
