No doubt you have a huge knowledge about the concept of virtual staging and thus, you can argue about it as much as you want, but we are sure you have never read about the cons of this concept. When we like something, we often read good things about it. Thus, we forget reading about its demerits. The truth is that just like every single coin has two sides, every single concept has both pros as well as cons. This is where you need to understand that the concept of virtual staging has its own demerits as well, just like it has all those merits to serve you with.
So what are the demerits of a concept like virtual staging?
We know it is difficult to believe that such a sales boosting concept can ever have disadvantages, but it surely does!
The first demerit that virtual staging has is the fact that it is all “virtual” and thus, there are chances for the buyers to feel disappointed when they see the actual property. Since the pictures are pretty exaggerated and beautified, it is easy for the interested buyers to fall in love with the property. However, when they look at the property for real, they realize that it is totally vacant and the floors are bland. It gives them a huge setback, if they are looking for beauty. They are unable to connect with the property because they keep the pictures in their minds.
The second demerit that virtual staging has is that you need to mention about the virtually staged pictures right below them. If you don’t do this, you can be sued for misleading the audience. Thus, it is a compulsion to write this below all the virtually staged pictures and videos.
The third demerit of this concept is that it can be quite an expensive one for those who are not into the business of buying or selling properties. If you are into this business, you still earn a good amount of profit by selling virtually staged properties. On the other hand, if you are an ordinary person who has taken the service of virtual staging for the sake of boosting the chances of the property you have in your hands, or under your name, you may find it difficult to bear the expenses of the team that’s providing you with virtual staging services.
