Taiwan-based virtual and augmented reality company iStaging has sealed a $5 million USD pre-A funding round led by WI Harper with participation from Taya Venture Capital, one of a consortium of venture capital firms working with the Taiwan National Development Fund.

The company is a promising addition to a number of startups that cater to real estate agents and furniture makers by using virtual reality to let prospective buyers spatially experience living spaces remotely.

Releasing their debut app in January, iStaging is certainly not the first company to pioneer the use of VR in real estate, thought their position in Taiwan gives them access to a growing number of Chinese citizens seeking to invest in foreign real estate.
