Krisztina Bell and Chris Rudd are this week’s guests on Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio. Krisztina talks about her company’s unique virtual staging process, while Chris shares how a changing buyer demand has shifted his company’s focus.

Krisztina Bell is the founder of Virtually Staging Properties. Krisztina is a professional home stager with a real estate license, and her company specializes in making vacant properties that are for sale look good.

Virtually Staging Properties offers a unique way to stage a home affordably instead of spending thousands of dollars. Their company’s patent pending virtual staging process places real life furnishings and decor into the photos of a vacant home. The end result is a very real looking product that can help sell your property. Having photos that look good is important because according to the National Association of Realtors, 90 percent of buyers are looking for their new home online, and 85 percent of those say the photos are the most important factor.
