4 Secrets To Becoming Successful in Home Staging & Interior Design
1. Stagers don’t need to own furniture or put up cash for rentals
One of the biggest misconceptions we see with beginning stagers is thinking they need to own and provide all of the furnishings for home staging. Nothing could be further from the truth. We provide you with all the names of the nationwide companies that work with stagers. In addition, we teach you how to collect from your clients upfront so you never have to worry about getting paid!
2. You don’t need four years of college to be a successful Interior Designer
Design is a learned skill. Our exclusive 6 Step Design Pro System™, developed by Academy co-founder Wanda Colon, teaches you the step-by-step process to running a design project while delivering professional results.
While no short term program can replace 4 years of time investment studying a field, our real-world structured formulas are easily employed. If you want to get going on your new career fast, our course focuses on the core design training needed to effectively design a home from the ground up. It also teaches you how to attract and close clients plus all the business administration skills, documents, and tools needed to get your business up and running immediately. Many of our students have taken on large design projects straight out of the program. Teaching you to think like a professional designer will help you avoid mistakes and deliver outstanding results to your clients and get referrals. 3. Leveraging home staging with interior design to thrive in any economy
If you are like most people, you are probably wondering what the difference is between staging a home and interior design. Home Stagers combine buyer demographics and psychology to design interiors that sell faster and attract higher offers thereby helping home sellers earn the most money for their home. Interior Designers help home owners create functional and beautiful spaces that speak to the home owners aesthetic rather than the potential home buyer’s aesthetic. In a nut shell, staging is the temporary design for cosmetic gain as a selling aid while Interior Design is a permanent installation to improve function and add comfort and beauty for the people who live there.
Home Stagers that offer interior design, and designers that offer home staging, get to enjoy life in all economies. This is because the real estate market perceives Home Staging as a necessity - especially in slower markets. In fast moving real estate markets, the economy is generally booming and home owners are looking to update or upgrade their home and need a designer’s expertise to make that happen. Having both skill sets can be your secret weapon to staying busy in any economy.
4. Start Taking On Clients Right Away
The path to having a successful staging or interior design business is to start working with clients fast. This helps to build confidence and a reputation that will attract more clients. The great thing about finding staging clients is that they are typically referred to stager’s by real estate professionals. Real estate agents are always looking for a new way to get clients to list with them and staging is a great tool for them to leverage.
Motivated home sellers want to work with agents who understand and utilize the latest strategies. The great thing about finding Interior Design clients right away is that everyone, not just those selling their home, is a potential client. This includes designing your staging client’s new homes so that you can be servicing the same client twice.
Bonus Secret #1 5. Make your own hours
Whether you prefer to work full or part-time, or already have a job or family commitments, stagers and designers can make their own schedule. Home sellers realize that service vendors typically work Monday through Friday, but love it when a vendor is open to meeting after work hours or weekends. If you have a full time job, or need to pick up the kids from school, you can always create the schedule that works for you.
