If you were to find yourself at a home staging consultation with a couple who wanted their home staged before their real estate agent’s upcoming caravan, would you know what they were talking about?
Debra Gould created the Home Staging Glossary by Staging Diva to give home stagers more confidence by giving them a place to go to find definitions for home staging terms and phrases they might not be familiar with. Gould says, “Every day we come across terms and phrases we may be unsure of and I hope the glossary will become a trusted resource for you to turn to whenever you find yourself stumped by some industry jargon.”
After their regular staff meetings, many large real estate offices have regular “caravans” of agents. It’s common practice for a group of real estate agents to regularly tour a number of new listings from within their office. These tours are known as real estate agent caravans.
Gould, founder of the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program says, “A listing agent may also have a “broker’s open house” where they’ll invite a number of real estate agents to view one of their listings in the hopes that someone will have a client who may be interested. Depending on the market and the price of the real estate listing, some agents will serve lunch to attract a bigger crowd of agents.”
