You may have seen the HTML5 logo when people talk about Virtual Tours. HTML5 is the newest hyper text markup language- the code that makes up websites. Smartphones and tablets mostly use HTML5 to display Virtual Tour images. So when you see "HTML5 Virtual Tours" it basically means some level of ability to view a Virtual Tour on a phone or tablet. All our Virtual Tours will work on a HTML5 compatible browser.

I have plenty of photos on my website so why do I need a Virtual Tour?

Here are some excellent reasons why you need a tour:

1. Website visitors now expect to see them, particularly on mobile devices.

2. Static photographs - no matter how good they are, do not convey the feeling of actually being there. Looking around, interacting and engaging with your potential customers
is so important these days. You do not get this from either photographs or video.

3. You have invested time and money in your business, you are passionate about it. Virtual Tours are the best way to promote your business, your venue or your property
online.

We digitally and realistically place furniture into photos of vacant homes for sale. Using the latest 3D rendering technologies, we are able to take a photo of an empty room and then fill it full of beautiful furniture and accessories.

Does Virtual Staging really make a difference?

It's proven that staging helps sell homes faster and earn a higher price.

How long can I use the Virtually Staged photos?

You can use the photos to market the subject property for as long as it takes to sell or lease the property.

How much does it cost to get Virtual Staging done for my property?

Pricing starts at just $75 for each image, supplied by you. If you would like us to capture the images as well, we would be happy to give you a price.

How long does it take to process my order and get my staged photos back?

Our turn around time can vary based on our backlog at the time of your placed order, but once we have received a completed order we average 3 - 4 business days.
