What is Virtual Staging? Sell Chicago homes & condos faster, for more money!
When presenting your home to prospective buyers, first impressions are crucial. Buyers begin judging your home the moment they see it and unless they’re looking for a deal on a fixer-upper, they prefer homes that are well- maintained, clean and clutter-free.
But what if the home you are trying to sell is vacant? It’s hard to make a home feel warm and inviting when it is completely empty…
Recently, realtors in Chicago have found a cost-effective solution to this problem: Virtual Staging
The goal of virtual staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property swiftly and for more money. Staging techniques focus on improving a property’s appeal by transforming it into a welcoming, attractive product that anyone might want. Home stagers in Chicago use artwork, painting, accessories, lights, greenery and carpet to stage the home, to give potential buyers a more attractive first impression of the property.
WEB APPEAL is the new CURB APPEAL. Virtual staging of condos for sale grabs the buyer’s attention!
According to a recent survey released by the National Association of Realtors, 92% of homebuyers use the Internet in some manner to view properties before their purchase. Web Appeal is the new Curb Appeal
Here’s what discriminating internet buyers look for most on real estate websites*:
• 97% – Property photos (plenty of them)
• 97% – Detailed information about properties for sale
• 89% – Virtual tours
• 82% – Neighborhood information
• 75% – Interactive maps
* According to the National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Homebuyers and Sellers
As you can see from the survey, quality pictures are a must!
Sold in 7 days, for 99% of the asking price!!
The above pictures are from one of Ryan’s recent listings in Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood. After only 7 days on the market, the seller accepted an offer of 99% of the asking price. The buyer paid all cash and made the initial offer sight-unseen. The takeaway: The pictures did their job!
Virtual staging can help bring potential buyers to your home. But these online photos, while extremely important, won’t help you close the sale once the buyers show up. That’s why you need a good realtor in Chicago. Connect with Ryan and he will prepare a custom marketing plan for your home. Together, you can decide if virtual staging makes sense for your home.
