A Common Concern About Home Staging
QUESTION ABOUT HOME STAGING
"I am recently divorced and would love to be able to start a business such as
staging or restaging. Do you believe it would be possible to earn much money doing
this in the St. Louis area? We have a large number of homeowners from all income
Do you discuss adding new furnishings to a home that does not have nice looking
furnishings to work with, or, for a home that is vacant?
Do you teach staging along with restaging?
If I would be interested in staging vacant homes for realtors, do you teach
ways to obtain furnishings without having to buy and store them? That is one obstacle
that I haven't been able to figure out.
I've been a real estate agent for 12 years, so, I am hoping that being in this
industry could be a help for me in selling staging/restaging services to other agents.
I would like to start doing this part-time along with real estate, and if I could
build this business up enough, eventually go into this full time."
ANSWER - I cannot ever predict what someone could make in a business venture and it
would be unethical for me to do so. I can tell you that there are people in the
industry making extremely good income and there are those that make no income.
None of that means anything, because your experience will not be like anyone else's.
I believe we do include the answers to your questions in the training. It is excellent
and very thorough. Please take time to read the list of topics in the salesletter.
We do cover how to handle vacant homes. I have found that it is not that crucial
how "nice" a client's furnishings are. What is important is where they
are put and how beautiful and sparkling you have made the dwelling.
If you follow the training, there is no reason why you can't be as successful as
your dedication brings. We have the training - but you are the X factor.
This is an honest answer, though probably not quite what you are hoping for. I
have personally found that life gives you back, in most cases, who you give out.
Sometimes the best decisions you make are to just say, "I'm going to do this,
no one is going to stop me, end of story".
WARNING! WORD OF CAUTION!
Our training is very affordable - don't take those high priced seminars or home study courses that are full of fluff and
fillers or that are over the top expensive, where they try to convince you that you can't be successful without them or in a hands-on class environment!
It's totally unnecessary and rather foolish, if you ask me.
Don't get fooled into believing you have to belong to their pricey organizations
or become licensed by them at the tune of $6500 per year. That's pure nonsense! I've never fallen for that stuff and you shouldn't either.
