Staging Industry Releases 2nd Annual Staging Trend Report for North America

Home Stager with Certified Staging Professionals

Special Thank You to Our Contributors ...


Staging TrendsHome Staging Trend Report is released and published. As 2011 begins, the professional home staging industry in North America is coming into its own as a completely integrated adjunct of the existing real estate industry in both the United States and Canada. The two countries, as well as individual regions of each, have had a very differing experience regarding economic indicators and consumer attitudes that profoundly affect the real estate market. The Canadian market continues to outperform the US market, and all indicators predict this will continue in 2011 and into 2012. 

"Trends in the staging business, like in real estate, are driven by events in housing, the economy, financing, unemployment and, to a large degree, by mass consciousness." explains trend setter and home staging expert Christine Rae, author of Home Staging For Dummies (Wiley 2008) and President of CSP International Business Training Academy.  

"Having a positive outlook is a crucial component to any business success; however it's a tough thing to maintain in a world which appears to be falling apart. Here is an example: I read a news item today: 22% of mortgage holders are finding it difficult to make payments when they could have said, 78% of mortgage holders are finding it easy to make payments" Christine Rae is quoted in the Staging Report as she continues on to forecast 5 leading staging trends for 2011. 

Experienced professionals in the staging and real estate industries confirm that regardless of market conditions - buyers' market, sellers' market, or balanced market - the integration of professional home staging services into the marketing plan of a well-priced home brings exceptional results for the homeowner and the real estate professional.  

As the leader in real estate staging training in North America, CSP InternationalTM Business Training Academy is committed to providing quality information to further the understanding and growth of the industry. They have consulted with successful real estate staging and sales professionals spanning the continent to provide a snapshot of the industry as it is now and where it is going.
