Virtual Staging Photos
Photos that are enhanced by adding furniture.
Virtual staging is the process of adding furniture to empty rooms like bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, etc…
Some people need that little push to be able to see the vision of what a house could look like with furnishings in it. Virtual staging help to bring life to rooms when being empty otherwise lets them appear cold and lifeless.
Virtually staged photos can work two ways. You can add furniture to rooms that are already empty or you can digitally remove furniture that is in a room and place new furniture there instead. Some people might choos the latter option because the current furniture in the room might be old and dated and dark and dingy. Doing this helps prospective buyers see what could be if they purchased your home.
Now we are not here to deceive anyone so it is good practice to inform people that these photos have been virtually staged so no one gets upset when they enter the house and see no furniture at all or old and dated or dark and dingy furniture.
We use your current photos to virtually stage your home but keep in mind that if your photos are not level and the right angles are not correct, the virtually staged furniture might not line up the best it can. That is why it is recommended to have professional real estate photos taken of your home.
The MLS of Long Island, now called OnekeyMLS, allows a maximum of 36 photos uploaded into the MLS system so you can use these virtually staged photographs towards your allotment of 36 photos. You can then use to showcase your house on the multiple listing service, other real estate websites or your own personal website.
Using a professional real estate photography company like Pinpoint Photography will make your photos “pop” instead of using your own cheap camera or phone camera. Although some of the cheap cameras and phone camera will take great photos, they don’t compare to a professional real estate camera. Real estate cameras capture a wider angle, can be shot is RAW format for better editing and are able to have accessory equipment paired to them like flashes and strobes to remove shadows and reflect sunlight and ambient light in a room.
