Virtually-staged room at 2501 Penn, by ALIGN3D
Most home sellers know the benefits of staging their home: it helps buyers envision the possibilities, it presents the space with the eye of a designer, and it prevents an empty home from feeling cavernous and bare.
But few people have the resources or motivation to have their home physically staged, the cost of which routinely runs into the thousands.
Enter virtual staging, in which images of a home's rooms and spaces are rendered as if they had furniture and decor.
ALIGN3D is a virtual staging firm that has launched service in the DC area. For a fraction of what it would cost to stage a home in the traditional sense, ALIGN3D will produce beautiful, virtually-staged images of the home ready for posting on the MLS.
The firm provided UrbanTurf with an example of their work using a local property. The listing below was at 2501 Pennsylvania Avenue NW. The top photo in each pair is the original photo; the bottom is ALIGN3D's virtually staged version.
- 1-2 photos - $75 each
- 3 photos - $183
- 4 photos - $240
- 5 photos - $285
