The benefits of virtual furniture

14-May-2018
Written by Ashley Blake
Have you ever seen an empty house for sale or lease on the internet? Did you automatically skip past it because it appeared less than inviting? We have just a few moments to catch a buyers interest when browsing online so seeing only bare walls and big empty spaces leaves little to the imagination and 9 times out of 10 buyers will just move onto to the next property.

Without furniture, it’s extremely hard to imagine yourself living at the property as well as connect with it emotionally. Where would your lounge go? Will the dining table look good over there? Furniture allows buyers to visualise themselves in the property.

Unfortunately it’s not always possible to have furniture in the property at the time of selling or leasing your property. Maybe you need to move out earlier or the tenants have vacated before the professional photography was scheduled. That’s where virtual furniture comes into play!

For just a fraction of the cost of home staging, virtual furniture will turn an empty, cold and abandoned room into a space that looks warm and inviting. Virtual furniture is also a great option if the furniture in your property is a bit dated or mis-matched as it can provide an enticing first impression.

“We have seen a dramatic increase in buyers to properties with virtual furniture compared to those which are marketed empty. Buyers often comment at the open home how life like the furniture looked when they viewed the property online and that they had no idea it was virtual.” David Newton.

Here are a few recent properties which we have marketed with virtual furniture and it's clear to see just what a difference it makes.
