This condo caught our eye, not only for the price but for the virtual staging. As it turns out, listing agent Sylvia Scott of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty showcased those images for good reason.

“I used the virtual images provided by a company who works exclusively for Sotheby’s International Realty and available only to Briggs Freeman locally, to show buyers how a little paint and different furnishings can completely transform the look of the unit, which had been more traditionally furnished by the previous tenant,” Sylvia explains. “I specifically had a client who could not figure out what to do with the alcove in the living room and I was able to show her these photos to give her an idea of what to do with that space. Providing tools like this can help buyers see the potential in an otherwise great opportunity!”
