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 $25-$30 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. Phixer 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.
What is virtual staging?
Virtual staging is an affordable alternative to traditional home staging and digitally places 3D furniture from a catalog into a space or room.
Is virtual staging worth it?
Yes, Virtual staging allows you to present a property as it could be, which helps potential buyers emotionally connect to the property. Additionally, it costs just a fraction of what you’d spend on actual, physical staging. A recent study published by NAR reported that staged homes get up to five times more views online and sell up to three times faster than vacant homes. One huge benefit of virtual staging is that your property marketing can be ready sooner because it does not require any work from the homeowner. Part of the difficulty listing a home is having the homeowner prepare their house, with virtual staging you can use declutter to easily remove all of their belongings and replace it with modern designed rooms.
Can I do virtual staging myself?
There are some DIY virtual staging services online and many of these tools use the current Ai buzzwords to catch realtors attention. The problem with these Ai virtual staging services is that the quality of the furniture and designs are very poor and do not look realistic. Many times the renders they create have artifacts such as missing couch legs or cut off furniture. If you want your marketing to be effective the virtual staging needs to look 100% real and this can only be performed with advanced 3D programs such as Autodesk 3D max and a skilled artist.
What software do people use for virtual staging?
The primary software that 3D artists use for virtual staging is Autodesk 3D Max, Corona and VRay. These tools have been used for decades by professionals. To create animated movies and designs. It takes years of training and practice to master creating 3D models using textures and lighting. Each virtual staged room takes up to 2 hours to produce and another 3 hours to render.
