Armchair decorators and “HGTV addicts” learn how to transform their decorating dreams into successful businesses as home stagers in the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program.
HGTV Addicts Discover New Career Option for Spring
United States (April 8, 2009) Home remodeling, design and decorating have become national pastimes in part because of the phenomenal success of Home & Garden Television or HGTV. Shows such as Designed to Sell, House Doctor and Sell This House allow armchair decorators a way to imagine how they could transform properties for a quicker sale.
For all the viewers of these shows who think “I can do that” or “I want to do that”, StagingDiva.com offers the Home Staging Business Training Program. This program provides individuals with an eye for design the opportunity to combine a passion for decorating with the tools to make money as a home stager.
Home Staging (House Staging, House Fluffing, Real Estate Staging, Interior Redesign for Real Estate) is the art of decorating a home to sell quickly and for top dollar, often by just using what a home seller already has in new ways.
Heather Ray Ryan of Florida says, “The Staging Diva Home Staging Training Program gave me the knowledge, power and confidence to quit my job of eight years and start doing something I have only dreamed of. Family and friends have a new found respect for me for being an example to my children by stepping outside my comfort zone and going for what I really want!”
The Staging Diva Training Program, taught by internationally recognized home staging expert Debra Gould, President of StagingDiva.com and Six Elements Inc., teaches the business side of home staging. It is not a “decorating” course but instead emphasizes best business practices, marketing strategies and pricing of services.
With the spring real estate market gearing up and home sellers desperately needing help competing with all the foreclosed homes on the market, home staging is very much in demand. This makes it an easier time to get a home staging business started.
For those who are not sure if home staging is right for them, Debra Gould has developed a free mini course, “12 Tips for a Successful Home Staging Business.”
According to Gould, students of the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program are quite diverse. They differ in background experience, nationality, current income and age. However, the common denominator among both male and female students is their enthusiasm for decorating. Seventy-six year old Jean Smith says, “I’m so happy to be starting a new business at my age. Thank you Debra for everything you have done to make my dreams come true!”
Maybe its time for others to get off the couch and put their decorating talent to work for them this spring.
