You look at what computers can do, and the property looks fabulous. A wall is removed. The color of the trim around doors is changed. The kitchen cabinets are a different color. And, of course, the furniture is much better looking than what the owners modestly put in there. And digitally, the photos have all the household clutter removed. Instant model home, and all without a stitch of work by Chip and Joanna.
However, it is not real. The Wall Street Journal reports that those virtual listing photos may be misleading. May be? The photos show a contrast between what is an empty home and one loaded with furniture. One that is a haven for clutter to a slick, smooth, clean kitchen without so much as a coffee maker on the cupboard.
A word to the wise: See the property in person before committing. Virtual reality is a tad different from the house being listed. You need to see the virtual and the real.
