Halloween is still weeks away but decorating magazines are already featuring ideas for the holidays.
Debra Gould, the Staging Diva, says the approach of Halloween is signaling sellers to get their homes sold before the holiday season which is infamous for being one of the slowest real estate seasons in the calendar year.
If you’ve been considering a change in your own life or career by investing in your education and becoming a home stager, this is a good time to do it!
The Staging Diva says, “With the fall real estate season in full swing those home sellers who have had their homes listed since Labor Day are starting to worry about the prospect of still being on the market during the holidays. If they don’t sell within the next month or two, they’ll likely be stuck waiting until February or March at least. Not to mention, anyone seriously thinking of buying a home right now is going to want to move before winter approaches.”
Homes that didn’t sell during the spring real estate season were listed again around Labor Day, in most cases with a new agent and a new price and if they’re still trying to sell, they’ll be wise to find a home stager as soon as possible. Many of those home sellers learned the hard way that lowering their price and selling “as is” isn’t the winning strategy in a slow real estate market.
“To learn more about why that’s the case, check out my FREE special report, Ask Staging Diva: Can I grow a home staging business in a depressed economy?,” suggests Gould. She adds, “Anyone who has friends telling them how talented they are at decorating who’s ready to learn how to make money from that talent should know the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program can be completed within a few days because it’s made up of 10 hours of audio recordings plus downloadable notes and checklists that you can study from your own home.”
With the homework assignment provided between course 1 and course 2 of the Staging Diva Program, many students get their first home staging client. “In other words,” says Gould, “your new career can be way closer than you think!”
By following the formula for starting and growing a home staging business that Gould teaches in her home staging courses, you’ll be well on your way to taking advantage of the busy fall real estate market and getting yourself into a great position to start 2011 knowing exactly what you’ll be doing for the year ahead.
