The Best Virtual Staging Companies Reviewed and Compared (2020)

When it comes to virtual staging companies, there are quite a lot of options, which can be overwhelming, especially if you're considering the use of it for the very first time.

When searching for options online, you'll typically see companies competing on price and turnaround time...
 



Price and turnaround time are important but they don't tell the full story and many companies are advertising per-photo prices that you can only access if you place a large bulk order (which most customers don't need or want to do). In the spirit of radical transparency, we did the research for you and documented our findings below. We've even linked to each company's website so that you can cross-check our data and do your own research if you'd like.

Please note that the price and turnaround times listed assume that you are interested in a pay-as-you-go service (meaning you don't want to subscribe to a plan or pay for a big bulk order). In addition to offering pay-as-you-go prices, some virtual staging companies (e.g. Stuccco, PadStyler and Roomy) offer the ability to subscribe or buy in bulk to unlock discounts on your virtual staging order or rush the delivery of it.

Whether you're a Realtor® using virtual staging for the first time or the 100th time, it's always good to do your research and shop around. It's also important to reference real data - not marketing hype - so that you and/or your team can make a logical, data-backed decision. Although cost and delivery time are important, they don't tell the full story. You should be looking at a number of data points that tell a more complete story. We also recommend referencing the company's portfolio of work, online reviews and even reading up on their leadership team to get a true understanding of the design and customer service quality the company will ultiimately deliver. We hope that by summarizing our findings above, we've made that process a lot easier for you. If you have any suggestions or questions about the info above or about virtual staging in general, please email (info@stuccco.com), call or live chat us.
