The term "VIRTUAL FURNITURE" is self-explanatory; it refers to furniture that is virtual......
And when I say virtual, I don't mean furniture that doesn't exist in the physical world we live in because it isn't true!
It's a kind of digital furniture that can be inserted into images of empty rooms.
So, why should you use virtual furniture instead of actual furniture?
As photographers, we strongly recommend staging a home with
furniture before selling it. It improves the look of our pictures and helps
my clients sell more homes and get more money from their vendors.
However, getting true style into a home isn't always possible.
Perhaps the vendor doesn't have the funds to hire furniture for $2500–$4500, or they don't have the time to have a home staged, or the vendor is a tightwad?
If you have a listing that isn't getting any traction, a quick remedy is to add some virtual furniture to it.
Whatever the case may be, there is always the choice of using virtual furniture.
Here are some of the explanations for this:
It's less expensive – starting at $45 per photo.
It's fast – it takes less than 24 hours to complete.
You can choose from a variety of different styles to complement any home.
So, how do you make virtual furniture?
Digital furniture can be added to a picture in two ways.
I'll discuss both approaches.
The first process is known as the cut and paste procedure.
The picture editors attempt to bend and stretch furniture from another image to match the new empty space photo.
This is a cheap and fast method that, in our opinion, does not look very fine.
The second procedure and favoured approach is a 3D modelling, which involves placing 3d modelled furniture into a scene using 3d software and adjusting lighting, shadows, and colour casts to insure the furniture appears 100% accurate and authentic.
This process takes a lot longer, but it produces a much better outcome when performed correctly by professional artists.
So, what is the price of virtual staging?
Prices differ by supplier; you can expect to pay anywhere from $25 for simple cut and paste furniture to $150+ per picture for custom work and generally full 3D rendering
Digital 1 is in the centre, with most prices ranging from $45 to $65 per image, depending on the number of images ordered.
