Top real estate agents are embracing virtual staging to market their most exclusive and expensive listings.
Virtual staging — once a marketing tool for empty homes that weren’t worthy of a physical staging — is now booming in the ultra-luxury real estate market. Back in 2010, when virtual staging was in its infancy, no agents were using virtual staging to market luxury real estate. My company, Ilaria Barion Design (IBD), was the first one to have a luxury, virtually staged home in the New York Times. We are now routinely virtually staging homes priced over $20M. One reason why this is happening is obvious: cost. Multi-million dollar homebuyers expect the best and they are not easily wowed. A cheap looking staging won’t do the trick and hiring a professional stager can cost up to $200K. Virtual staging is the most cost-effective way to create very upscale interiors without breaking the bank. But costs aren’t the only reason why virtual staging has become widely used in the luxury and ultra luxury real estate market.

OCOTAL, COSTA RICA - The view is priceless. The craftsmanship is impeccable. The setting is beyond compare. And frankly, the opportunity is the icing on the cake.
The stunning estate of Villa Estrella is situated on an exclusive hilltop overlooking the small village and beach of Ocotal, just minutes from the busier hub of Playas del Coco, where you will find groceries, restaurants, nightlife and services, and only 30 minutes to the international airport of Liberia. The owners carefully selected this nearly two-acre parcel of land to maximize both privacy, exclusivity and unobstructed postcard views.
