How Realtors Deal With Vacant, Unfurnished, and New Construction Homes for Sale
Few things slow down a realtor’s day quite like the challenge of marketing an unfurnished home. Marketing a vacant or unfurnished property presents realtors with unique challenges, most of which start with showing a bare and unappealing home. With the right strategies, these homes can be showcased effectively to captivate potential buyers. Let’s explore reliable and innovative solutions that R/E Media offers that can transform any empty space into an inviting prospect.
I am excited to showcase a property that perfectly illustrates the diverse solutions we provide for presenting unfurnished properties. This particular property has been the subject of all our offered services, allowing for a direct comparison of each option. It’s an opportunity to view a true “apples to apples” comparison, demonstrating how different strategies can enhance the same space in unique ways.
Present As-Is: Presenting a property as-is can be a strategic move. It’s an honest, unadorned look that can appeal to the imaginative buyer. This approach is not only the most cost-effective but also the quickest to market. Without the need for staging or extensive preparation, you can list the property immediately, providing a straightforward view of the space. This option appeals to those who can envision the potential of a home and prefer to personalize the space in their mind’s eye. It’s a testament to the home’s innate charm and a nod to the simplicity of its architecture. We do our best to shoot choose angles that will show off the space, and not just look like empty space, but there is only so much you can do.
Virtual Staging: Virtual staging allows for creative freedom and artistic expression in showcasing a home. By choosing this route, you can highlight the property’s best features with stylish, virtual furniture that appeals to today’s home buyers. It’s about creating an emotional connection, where potential buyers can see a house as a home. For critical spaces like the living room, master bedroom, and kitchen, where buyers focus most, virtual staging can be pivotal. This method is particularly useful for online listings where first impressions are formed in seconds, and captivating visuals are key to drawing attention.
Professional Staging: Obviously the best alternative, but also the most expensive. Professional staging is the art of transforming a vacant space into an inviting, homely environment. It’s about more than placing furniture; it’s about curating an experience for each visitor, tapping into the buyer’s aspirations of living in the home. Professional stagers understand the psychology of buyers and use this to enhance the property’s appeal. This method can be particularly effective for open houses and walk-throughs, where the tangible feeling of a home can leave a lasting impression. While it is a significant investment, the value added can often be reflected in a higher selling price and a faster sale.
Virtual 3D Tours: Virtual 3D tours are at the forefront of innovation, merging technology seamlessly with the art of real estate marketing. In these fascinating times, such tours are nothing short of magical. We begin with a simple video capture of the empty property, and then our computer graphics experts work their magic to stage the home virtually. The outcomes are spectacular, nearly indistinguishable from reality, and they never fail to impress. Introduced at the dawn of 2024, this technology quickly proved its value, with two successful projects completed by the second week of January alone. These virtual tours are revolutionizing the way realtors address common challenges, including the dilemma of presenting cluttered homes. For properties that aren’t show-ready but need to hit the market, virtual refurbishment offers a compelling solution that speaks volumes through its stunning visuals.
