A Day in the Life of a Home Stager - 04/27/07 10:52 AM
Real estate, staging, real estate, staging...Everyone wants a piece of me. I can't complain. I'm getting to the point of having a waiting list for staging. I have a closing this afternoon, then a house to de-stage and one to stage this evening. I've gotten a couple of inquiries from people who expect to have their property staged really cheap. My feeling is: if someone is out there staging cheap, then it cheapens this business. When you couple the physical work involved with the artistic talent involved, people should expect this to be a pricey service. You get what you pay for. (1 comments)

I'm averaging 2 - 3 staging inquiries a day, seven days a week. All vacant, all from Charlotte. That is surely the market in this area. I'm to the point where I'm emptying one house and taking my inventory straight into another house. I am fortunate to have a husband with a truck and two college age sons who are my moving men. I also have a big garage for storage, but I haven't had to use it. Otherwise, I could see the problem with costs for storage, moving, trucks, etc. God has certainly planned things out well for me - as always. (7 comments)

The doughnuts went over really well. I remembered in staging class that Wanda Hickman said to take doughnuts with you when doing PR. I never tried it before and I have to say it really worked. I'm not a Krispy Kreme glazed fan, but it seems that most folks are. I got possitive results everywhere I went. (0 comments)

Getting closer to staging that model. Got a new listing. Working with another buyer. Have another staging job lined up in Mrytle Beach later this week. Have some big ads about to run. Plan for mid week - PR with doughnuts! My sons bought 9 dozen doughnuts at a fundraiser, Guess where they're going? (6 comments)

Computer was down for several days. Real estate business is picking up. Wrote 4 contracts on houses last week. Got 2 staging jobs also the same week. Vacant - of course. That seems to be the market here. Also working on getting a model. Plan this week - PR, PR and more PR. I used to manage a Hilton Hotel in PA. Hospitality is in my brain. This is really helping my business. One of my other careers was a newspaper reporter - I handled local government business. Does anyone home school and stage? I did that too. My background in muti tasking is really paying off. (1 comments)
