Virtual staging of a property

Virtual staging allows you to digitally enhance/alter photos of a property to show prospective buyers what it could potentially look like.

You are allowed to add/modify furniture and design elements, such as:

  • rearrange/move furniture
  • add virtual furniture/decor to empty rooms
  • add curtains to windows

When you are virtually staging a property, you need to be careful not to misrepresent the house, yard or surroundings.  You are not allowed to:

  • move walls
  • add/remove windows
  • virtually upgrade existing kitchen counter tops
  • add/move fixtures
  • remove permanent structures (high power lines, water tower, etc.)
  • hide/cover up flaws (cracked or water stained ceiling/walls, etc.)
