Sotheby's International Realty has partnered with Curate, a 3-D virtual reality staging app. With Curate, you can take pictures of a space and then drag and drop different furniture and accessory pieces to try on different ideas and looks for the home you're thinking about buying.
What's more, you can actually buy different pieces from within the app itself. There's even furniture packages that you can customize around different style themes like mid-century modern.
Curate will definitely help buyers in their search, but I'm really looking forward to using it with my listings to help buyers see how the various properties I represent can be customized to perfectly fit their tastes.
In fact, we have seen a big difference in the market for homes depending upon their architectural and interior design styles. New construction contemporary homes and those that have been staged or remodeled, for example, are out-performing homes with more classic or traditional styles.
With Curate, though, I'll be able to connect more buyers and sellers for all types of properties across the marketplace.
