Get Paid to Stage Homes for Sale

Imagine having a high-paying career that lets you use your creativity and flair for decorating to help people sell homes more quickly for higher prices.

Welcome to the exciting world of home staging!

About Home Staging

Home staging (also known as real estate enhancement) is the process of making a house attractive to potential buyers. As a home stager, you will help home builders, real estate agents, and home owners sell homes more quickly.

"There are literally thousands and thousands of homes on the market, so there's plenty of business for home stagers to go around."
     -   Lori Matzke, President
         Center Stage Home Inc.
As a home stager you will be hired to emphasize the best features of a property while improving or downplaying the less attractive features. 

Unlike interior decorating, home staging is about neutralizing décor and removing a client's identity from a home, so that it appeals to buyers of all tastes and preferences.

When you start a home staging business, you might choose to be a home staging consultant, giving people ideas to help them stage their home, or you might do hands-on home staging yourself.

Why Start Your Own Home Staging Business

According to Entrepreneur magazine, home staging is a hot business. The demand for home stagers is growing as more homeowners learn about home staging from popular TV shows such as Designed to Sell on HGTV and Sell This House on A&E.

Few careers offer so many benefits. Home staging allows you to express your creativity using the latest trends in interior design and home fashions. As a home stager, you'll meet interesting people as you set up beautiful spaces in some of the most gorgeous and expensive homes in your area.

When you start a home staging business, you could earn a starting salary of $35 to $75 per hour or more and enjoy the freedom of being your own boss. You can work from home and you can start now!

As long as you have the desire, you can become a home stager. No special education or experience is necessary to break into this career and succeed.
