Collateral Effect of Interior Design Regulation on Real Estate Stagers

Home Stager with Designology Interior Design

I  don't know if you guys have seen this yet but this was e-mailed to me and it might be of interest to all of you. What do you think of this?...




Dear Stagers,


Recently, we became aware of positions and statements originating from the staging profession purporting that regulation of interior designers does not affect real estate/home stagers and they should not become pro-active in protecting their freedoms.


This is not only far from true, but is a dangerous position that could potentially place real estate stagers at great risk.  Practice laws in states like Florida and Alabama have been a detriment to real estate stagers, and if similar practice acts are allowed to be enacted, stagers will continue be impacted.  Sadly, the advice which has been given to stagers recommending that they do not look into this issue lacks a clear understanding of the nuances of regulation, and instead of advancing member protection, it serves only to encourage stagers to withdraw back into complacency instead of continuing to actively engage in this important issue that has and will continue to impact staging professionals if left unchecked.

The article itself was marginally interesting, but the comments posted on the paper's website were very thought provoking. I am a Home Stager / Interior Redesigner and make sure to point out to clients that I do not have a four year interior design degree and do not have that training. I make sure that I don't get into jobs where the scope of the work is outside my abilities. I personally have great respect for ASID/ALLIED Interior Desginers and I hope that someday I will have the financial ability to get that degree in addition to my business degree.

Thanks for posting.

BTW - can you "unfeature" the featured posts in this group? Some of them are very old.
