WHY TAKE OUR COURSE?
With so many home staging courses on the market, we are proud to say we are one of the only...if not the only...home staging course and certification offered by an active home stager!
The information you'll be receiving isn't just hearsay or something that looks good on paper but doesn't actually work in real life. The same information provided in this course is exactly the same information we use ourselves for a successful home staging business since 1999.
Whether you are starting a home staging business from scratch, adding staging to an existing design business, or a Realtor® interested in staging for your clients, we give you all the information you need to find success!
Whether you want to roll up your sleeves and do the work yourself, or simply want to advise your client and provide them with a game plan, getting a house staged and ready to sell does not have to be a drawn out, nightmare of a process! We teach you exactly what to say and how to say it to get your clients motivated, what to look for to give them the best direction, and provide you with a perfect set of guidelines to follow that work every time on any home in any condition!
The cost of our course is a fraction of what other courses cost, and it is absolutely, positively the quickest way to turn a house into a very desirable listing, guaranteed to grab attention and garner offers! If you are looking for a course to launch your home staging career, or as a Realtor® simply want to boost your own listings, our online manual will get you started immediately and keep you on the right track for years to come.
"Take our course today, start staging tomorrow!"
ABOUT HOME STAGING AND THIS COURSE - A summary on the history of Home Staging and what you will learn in this course. Includes a listing of what you will find on each page for easy access.
UNDERSTANDING THE HOMEOWNER - To work successfully with your client, it is important to understand where they are coming from. Throughout the course, we will teach you what to say and how to say to ensure things get done and everyone is happy.
HOME STAGING SERVICES - You have options when it comes to what staging services you might want to offer. It all depends on how involved you want to get in the process. We give you the knowledge so you can decide what best fits into your business model.
Once you have earned your HSE® certification, you will have unlimited access to a downloadable Home Assessment Sheet that provides a check-off list for your client on the spot, as well as a Consultation template that can be utilized at any time.
USING YOUR HOME STAGING SKILLS TO SIGN A LISTING - As a Realtor®, offering staging services can give you an edge over your competitors. We will show you how to present your skills and show off your knowledge during a listing appointment to help you gain the advantage.
PRICING YOUR SERVICES - There's always the question of how to be compensated for your staging skills, whether justifying a higher commission, selling the home faster for a better price, a monetary fee, or a combination of all three! We include pricing info for you to help you understand the fee structure to place a monetary value on your skills.
SUPPLYING STAGING PROPS - Inevitably, they'll be a house out there in need of a little something. Whether purchased, rented, or borrowed, we cover it all and include a number of live links to our most frequently used items.
STAGING A VACANT HOUSE - We give several options and a number of scenarios to choose from whether contracted through a secondary company or provided by you directly for monetary gain.
RENTING FURNISHINGS VS. OWNING FURNISHINGS - We are fully aware that most Realtors® have absolutely no desire to become full-time stagers and maintain a storage unit stocked to the rafters with furniture. However, please note that we stage many, many properties with full furnishings that can be easily transported without assistance! While renting furniture is absolutely the best option in some cases, there are also quite a number of other options out there that could literally save you and your clients big money. This section shows you exactly how to do it for minimal investment and very little, if any, overhead. At the very least, possessing this knowledge will help you direct your client to making an informed decision for a practical solution they can implement themselves.
THE ELEMENTS OF A WELL-STAGED HOME - Instructions on all the best techniques for staging a property for market including Curb Appeal, Staging the Interior of a Home, Creating Balance, Creating Flow, and Highlighting Features. We also include a set of Home Staging Guidelines that simplify the process, as well as the Top 5 Home Staging Do's and the Top 5 Home Staging Don'ts.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT PAINT COLORS - One of the most underrated and often overlooked aspects when preparing a home for market is choosing the right paint colors. While the knee-jerk reaction is often to choose the most popular colors of the moment, this approach can frequently undermine your best intentions. Did you know that choosing the right paint color can actually tone down dated flooring, help worn countertops blend in, or make otherwise bland trim really pop? In this course, you will learn how to downplay unattractive attributes and play up positive features simply by understanding what colors to recommend to your clients for the right backdrop.
ALSO INCLUDED -
Please note: Both the Partially Furnished and Fully Furnished Staging Pictorials walk you through actual staged homes and include instruction on staging a home for market, detailed explanations behind the design, as well as live links.
10-STEP BUSINESS AND MARKETING PROGRAM - Our detailed 10-STEP BUSINESS AND MARKETING PROGRAM will give you the proven formula you need to succeed whether you are a Realtor® adding staging to an existing business model, or starting your own staging company. We cover the importance of each and include how-to advice.
FINAL EXAM - No reason to panic! It's actually a very fun final exam and will give you some hands-on experience. There is no additional fee to submit your final for certification. Once complete, you will receive your certificate in the mail as well as a code to enter the Member's Area for your logo, downloadable Home Assessment Sheet and Consultation template, as well as instructions on how to submit your free business listing to us at www.homestagingexpert.com.
"I'm a Realtor®, not a stager. And while I may never go all out and physically stage my own listings, your course was very comprehensive and user friendly. I now feel like an expert when advising my sellers on what to do." "I purchased your course on a Friday, went through it over the weekend, and by Monday I was able to put all the information to good use on a listing that's been sitting on the market far too long. Within a week, we received two solid offers and the house is currently under contract. My clients are thrilled!" "I sold the first house I ever staged in five days thanks to the skills I learned from this course! WHOO-HOO! I ROCK!" "Gave my client a short 'to-do' list and presented it in the manner suggested. Came back the next day and they had already completed everything on the list! I don't think that's ever happened before." "This is the third home staging course I've taken over the years and I do wish I had taken it first. I would have never needed the other two." "Thanks to your training course, my wife has been able to work with me side-by-side as a Home Staging Expert® which has already proven to be a huge asset! We plan to offer staging to all of our clients as a 'value-added service' per your suggestion." "Honestly, I usually hate online courses, but this one was different. Not only was it informative, but it was practical and easy to read. Your sense of humor comes through and you lay out the materials in such a way that I never got bored." "Your writing style is both approachable and very down to earth. Using your guidelines, I found the process much less intimidating." "Thanks to this course, now 'I LOVE STAGING HOMES', too!"
