Have you been thinking about a career in Home Staging?

Have you been thinking about making a career change lately?

Maybe you would like to be in charge of your own schedule doing something you love and being paid good money in exchange for your talents?

That’s how I felt a few years when two of my biggest clients announced they were moving on and I was to lose over 70% of my current income! Yikes - I needed to do something quick and whatever that was going to be, I knew it had to meet certain criteria:

1. It needed to be a business that took very little time and money to get up and running

2. In order to replace 70% of my income, it needed to be a lucrative choice

3. As long as I was starting over, I was hoping to find something I could be passionate about.

Pretty tough criteria to meet on all levels. I had always thought that the easy to train for, fun and desirable high paying fields were already saturated. Then I was introduced to home staging.

I must admit, when I was first considering home staging, there were some things that had me worried. I knew from watching all the televisions shows that I would love directing a design project from start to finish and watching the incredible difference in the before and afters. But I still wondered how much work would be out there and if I could really make a go of it. What if I put myself out there and no one ever called?

To my great relief – I had my first staging client within a couple weeks. Turns out, home staging has been around for over 30 years and is the #1 career poised for growth according to CNN and Career Builder.

Now I look forward to my work. Gone are the days that I yearned for something different or better. For me, the best part about being a home stager is solving a creative challenge that results in a complete visual transformation. It was easy to master this design skill set but I am always excited to realize that every project is different and I never get bored! As a side benefit,  I have helped hundreds of people sell their home faster and for more money and they are truly grateful for my services. (I also happen to be very fond of my boss for the first time in my life!)

How to Become a Home Stager in 5 days?!

Have you always dreamed of having an exciting career in design but didn’t want to spend tens of thousands of dollars and years in training?

 

Are you like me? Watching all the design shows on tv and wondering, how can I do something that is rewarding, challenging, fun, creative, and here’s the big one……….get paid for it? Preferably, enough money to make a good living…..

 

How I discovered Home Staging

 

One day, my Mom was telling me how my cousin had hired a stager to come in and stage her home for sale. She said it sold in less than 2 weeks while others in the area had been sitting for months. Many of her neighbors had taken price reductions of ten to fifteen thousand dollars per adjustment while my cousin had only spent 2,000 getting her home ready and sold in 12 days for almost full price. I was happy for my cousin, but why all the talk about home staging?

 

Then the conversation took an interesting twist. My Mom told me that my cousin was thinking about becoming a home stager and that anyone could become a stager in just 5 days of training!!!

 

Could this be true? 5 days?? I could hardly believe my ears. Could I really become a designer of homes in 5 days? Sure enough, after researching, I discovered many “schools” delivering a complete ‘business in a box’ program for home staging and never looked back.

 

Today I am a successful home stager with a school of my own located in the beautiful town of Valencia, located in northern Los Angeles County in California. I have incorporated all of the things I thought were missing from other training programs and have what I consider to be the most comprehensive home staging program available. For a fraction of the time and cost of traditional design schools, you too, can learn the craft of home staging and be paid handsomely for your professional skills that help homeowners retain as much profit for their home as possible.

 

What can you expect to learn in a Home Staging Program?

 

The investment in home staging training can save you thousands in costly business mistakes. In a good home staging program, you will learn trade secrets that take years to learn and develop, along with staging specific business and marketing essentials that enable you to start a staging business immediately upon graduation. In addition, some programs teach space planning, color theory, design essentials, and have multiple in-field exercises where you will gain invaluable design and critical thinking skills. Small class size, and a format that allows you to ask questions, is also a plus.

 

Research is the key. Many programs are 3 days instead of 5, or only have 1 in-field exercise or assume you already have a design background and gloss over this area. There are online programs as well but if you are a person that learns by doing, then reading a book or watching a video about how to be creative, rather than experiencing the actual creative process, may not be for you.
