I believe the second line blank filler is; smoke too. It may not just be the stagers that are smoking too much grass in this situation.

Real staging is all I know . . . let's see what the oracle reveals . . .THANK YOU JOHN FOR REVEALING THE TRUTH! LMAOOOO!

Okay before AR takes my edit button away here's my updated answer and thank you John and Rocker:

"The virtual staging company is on fleek because they grow and distribute much grass. For free! For their customers for a limited time."😎

I do not like virtual staging when the pictures are not identified as so. We saw what looked like a beautiful home online, all pictures were virtual staged and we wasted an hour drive to the seacoast to see it. The home was a fun down mess in real life

Virtually Staging Properties is who I use, Sally. Here is a sample of one that I used when I was the 4th agent and knew that staging is what was missing in the house. The house sold right away! I swear by it for vacant properties! And, this one was beautiful - buyers just can't 'see' the room sizes/potential.

Think about it - that's why builders sell more of the home floorplans that are staged models on-site! Buyers NEED to see what they can do with a place!

We offer real staging through our own staging company. We use real furniture...not virtual furniture. I do not see the benefit in virtual staging except, I am guessing, for cost and convenience. Visitors to the property will see an empty house, thus negating the value of the virtual staging.

I have seen some great virtual staging. Once I went to a home that had some messy tenants. The listing agent posted virtual staging photos inside the door of each room so you could see what it could look like. I wondered when the tenants thought of it. 

Although I haven't used them for virtual staging yet, RealTourInc.com is my go to company for photography, virtual tour, floor plan company and they are now offering virtual staging. I like them because they are a woman owned business and they have excellent customer service.

I did have a professional photographer put a mattress on a bed frame for me once.  Not sure if I can find the photo, but he did a fantastic job and it fixed an otherwise ugly photo.  But not sure about a complete house.
