Online advertising is important and it is critical to make your listing stand out. Staging a property, if done well, has proven to attract more leads. It also helps prospective buyers imagine a lifestyle and feel more at home. 


In the case of condo units, they often look similar. They are also often compact and sometimes it is difficult for the buyer to visualize what the space could look like. The market is competitive, and as such, it is critical that you differentiate your listing. Staged homes produce better photos and will increase the number of showings and reduce the amount of time the listing is on the market.


Surveying agents, many avoid staging due to high cost and work involved. In situations when budget and time are factors, we recommend Virtual Staging. Furthermore Cityscape recommends Property Pandas for your Virtual Staging needs. 


The process is simple:

1) Provide your own photos or use Property Pandas to photograph the property.

2) Tell them what photos need staging, room type and any design notes.

3) In 48-72 hours (usually less than 48 hours) prepare to see amazing results!


The devil is in the details, as they say. Property Pandas spend approx. 1 hour per photo to ensure shadows and blending are perfect. Furniture is at an appropriate scale to room size to ensure realistic finish.


Cityscape agents now have access to a preferred rate for Virtual Staging: $40/Photo. Contact for more details.


Below are two listings that Property Pandas virtually staged for Cityscape. The first is a townhouse on Markham Street, and the second is a unit at the Shangri La Residences.
