Top Ten Reasons Home Staging is a Great Home Based Business
If you have a flair for decorating and an interest in real estate, Home Staging could
be the right career for you. This service business, also called Real Estate Staging, is
based on the art of decorating a home to sell quickly and for top dollar.
Home Staging is a great service business to run from a home office for these ten reasons:
1. It is a low cost business to start.
You can work from your own home office. You don't need a store front or inventory. You
also don't need expensive advertising to grow your home staging business successfully.
2. There is no need to invest in inventory or recruit others into the business. Home
Staging is not a multi-level marketing scheme.
If you've researched the subject of home-based business, you've probably encountered
lots of schemes that want you to buy inventory and recruit others into the business too.
These are multi-level marketing businesses. Home Staging is not a multi-level marketing
business. You don't have to buy anything and you don't have to recruit anyone else to join
the business. This is something you can do on your own without any recruiting pressures.
You aren't expected to pester every friend and casual acquaintance you've ever had to
invest in your "unique opportunity."
3. It has been recognized as one of the best growth businesses.
Entrepreneur Magazine identified home staging as one of the hottest growth businesses,
and the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program is the ONLY home staging
business opportunity recognized by the magazine for the last three years in their business
start up guide books.
4. The financial rewards are there if you work hard to build your business.
Home Stagers create real wealth for their clients by effectively decorating their homes
to sell quickly and for top dollar. Once clients realize the significant return they can
make on their investment in home staging services, they don't feel it's unreasonable to
spend several hundred dollars for even two hours of a stager's time. In other words,
working only half a day, you can make what many people take a whole week to earn. If you
have five clients in a single week, you can earn more than you did in an entire month of
working full time.
And with real estate markets slowing in many parts of the US, the demand for (and
interest in) staging services will continue to grow as desperate home sellers look for an
alternative to the costly price reductions their agents recommend.
This business can also thrive in a hot real estate market as savvy home sellers realize
the greater profits they can make when they have 10 or 15 buyers bidding on their homes,
instead of the two or three they might have had before staging.
