You probably have lots of questions about home staging, what it's like being a home stager and different training options. Please take some time to review these answers to commonly asked questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

General Home Staging Questions

What exactly is Home Staging?

At its most basic definition, Home Staging is the art of decorating a home to ensure it sells quickly and for absolute top dollar.

Home staging can be as simple as rearranging existing pieces in a home or as complicated as bringing in several new pieces of furniture, interesting accessories and eye-catching art. Many home staging projects fall between these extremes.

You may have heard Home Staging referred to in different terms including:

  • Real estate staging
  • Real estate enhancement
  • House staging
  • House fluffing
Bedroom Before Home Staging

Bedroom After Home Staging
House staging can be as simple as losing the clutter, choosing a more appropriate paint color and rearranging what a client already has in new ways.

Is there any difference between Home Staging, House Fluffing and Real Estate Enhancement?

No, there really isn't. These terms are all used interchangeably to describe decorating a home to sell on the real estate market.

Do I need a background in Interior Design to be a Home Stager?

Absolutely not! You don't need a background or formal training in interior design or decorating to become a successful home stager.

However, you do need good taste and a good sense for arranging furniture to make a room look appealing. If you often have friends asking you to decorate their homes, chances are you already have what it takes; you just need to know how to turn that natural talent into a business.

The Staging Diva® Home Staging Business Training Program will address the things you need to focus on while you're staging a house, at the same time it will help you become more comfortable with your own talents.

What 'accreditation' or 'certification' will I need to be a real home stager?

"Had I not subscribed to your training program, I would have taken a completely different approach to this business. You have laid out a strategy to make this career so much more enjoyable than it would have been otherwise! I paid big dollars previously for another company's training, which did not begin to compare to the Staging Diva Program.

There were so many blank spots left in the other program that I couldn't get my staging business started. You've answered so many lingering questions and now I am really prepared to get right out there and start to work. I really looked forward to each course because you are such an entertaining speaker!

The Staging Diva Program is the best investment I ever made in starting my staging business."

Pearl River Home Staging Company (CA)

"I simply love the fact that the Staging Diva curriculum is a 'blueprint' with all the ins and outs of developing a Home Staging business— what a gift! I’ve invested in a number of programs in the past, some were a total waste of money; but the Staging Diva Home Staging Training Program proved to be 'over-the-top' on a scale of 1 to 10. Thank you Debra for ‘giving me my wings!’"

   
         
 

Actually, there is no such thing as credentials in the home staging industry. While you can't snap your fingers and have a successful home staging business right this very second, you can actually start calling yourself a Home Stager right now!

Some companies market their training programs with "certifications" that sound official, but they are actually only there to try and convince you to take one course over another. In other words, the idea of "certification" or "accreditation" was invented for marketing purposes. You are only "certified" or "accredited" by the company offering that particular course, not by any independent regulatory body, since home staging is an unregulated and unlicensed field.

It's important for you to know that there aren't any OFFICIAL CREDENTIALS in the field of home staging. Any associations or organizations are owned or financed by the people who have developed the training programs they're trying to sell to you.

"Misleading the public or potential students is not my style," says internationally recognized expert home stager Debra Gould, creator of The Staging Diva® Program. "That's why I never even considered creating a fancy set of initials to put after people's names when they graduate from my program. Instead, I bring value by offering solid business training based on my MBA in Marketing, BA in Communications and almost 30 years' business experience (20 as an entrepreneur), combined with the first-hand knowledge gained in building an incredibly successful home staging business from scratch."

I'm a realtor. Should I become a Home Stager?

Some Realtors® take the Staging Diva Home Staging Training Program because they want to get into house staging to get out of the 24/7 demands of selling real estate.

Because the Staging Diva Program is designed to teach you how to make a really good income as a home stager, it's only appropriate for agents who want to shift their focus to home staging as their primary source of revenue. This is not the program to take if you want to remain a full time real estate agent and stage your own property listings for free.

You don't need a real estate license to be a home stager.

But you might choose to maintain your real estate license if you already have one since home staging is a great source of listing leads. Many homeowners stage their homes before hiring an agent and you would be building a relationship with them through the staging of their homes. If you have a license it would be easy to extend that relationship into getting the real estate listing for those clients who hadn't already hired an agent. Remember though, you'll be charging clients for your home staging expertise, not giving it away for free. These issues are discussed in the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program.

This article about real estate agents and home staging explains more about some of the financial difficulties faced by Realtors® in today's market.

In the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program you’ll learn how Debra Gould gets media coverage like this so you can do it too in your local market!

Should I worry if I'm the first home stager in my area?

No, but it probably won't last so get out there! As one of the first home stagers in town, you have a wonderful opportunity to become THE expert local home stager. Once you are an established expert home stager, that's a huge competitive edge. As more home stagers appear in your area (count on it, they will!) you will forever be able to market based on your superior level of experience and expertise.

Course 4 of the Staging Diva Training Program - Staging Diva Sales & Marketing Secrets to Boost Your Home Staging Business teaches you how to take advantage of being a home staging pioneer in your area.

Yes, you'll have the important job of educating homeowners and real estate agents about the benefits of home staging, but you'll definitely reap great rewards for your efforts!

There are plenty of media stories to prove that home staging works and will help to pave the way for you.

How do I know if there are already too many home stagers in my area?

We have yet to see a market that is saturated with too many expert home stagers. Some cities have more home stagers than others, but there are also lots of stagers who approach their business as more of a hobby. In other words, they don't really pose a competitive threat to someone who is serious about building a home staging business and who has the knowledge to approach it correctly.

It's worth contacting your local real estate board and finding out how many real estate agents there are in your geographic area and how many homes are listed and sell in an average year.

Then try and find as many home stagers in your area as you can and pay attention to how professional they seem and how easy or hard it was to find them.

Notice how many real estate agents there are compared to real estate stagers and consider what small percentage of homes listed in a year that you would have to stage to make a living.

Now imagine how, with the right knowledge, you could quickly establish yourself as a local home staging expert. When Debra Gould, The Staging Diva launched her staging company in 2002, there were already hundreds of stagers in her area. Yet, she quickly rose to international prominence as an expert in the field. In the Staging Diva Home Staging Training Program, she'll teach you how she did that and how you can copy her formula for success!

Bedroom Before Home Staging

There were no children living in this house, which had been purchased to renovate and resell. A family home should be shown with children’s rooms, so Debra Gould sourced rental furniture and accessories to quickly convey the idea of a girl’s bedroom.

Girl's Bedroom After Home Staging

Will I have to invest in inventory to become a successful home stager?

One of the advantages to home staging as a business over others, is that it's incredibly inexpensive to get into because you don't need to invest in your own inventory. Home staging expert Debra Gould has personally staged hundreds of millions of dollars worth of real estate without ever investing in her own inventory of furniture or accessories. She teaches you how to do that in course 2 of the Staging Diva Training Program, The Business of Home Staging: What you need to start and how to grow.

Questions about the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program

What do you focus on in The Staging Diva Training Program?

Our focus is on providing you with the information you need to start a profitable business around your love of decorating. The content of our expert home staging training includes information on pricing, marketing and sales training, and has been designed to help you grow a creatively satisfying home staging business that also meets your financial goals.

Will I have to travel to take The Staging Diva Program or to complete an exam?

Staging Diva Training Program PackageOne of the best parts of this program is that it's 100% home study. You take the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program from home or wherever else is convenient for you!

The format is engaging audio courses, all recorded by expert home stager, Debra Gould - training is not delegated to assistants. Debra brings all of her real world experiences from her own home staging business to the program, and delivers it in an entertaining and organized way.

Our five courses come in a set of 10 audio CDs and they're accompanied by comprehensive study notes, a complete workbook, two checklists and a resource guide.

You'll get fully edited recordings, picked from the best of the best of all Staging Diva Courses. You'll follow along in your study notes and listen to Debra Gould, creator of The Staging Diva Program, as she presents the material - sharing what she learned in her own journey of building her staging business plus her answers to questions from a small group of 8 students.

There is no exam required, but each course has a homework assignment to help you move your business forward.

These homework assignments are not marked or submitted to us, they are there to help you get your business going. Each assignment is something you should do for your business so we made it homework to nudge you along. There is no "make work" stuff here. It's all what you need to help you be successful.

What's different about The Staging Diva Program from others I've seen - where is the main focus?

Our biggest differentiator is we don't want students who want home staging to be their creative hobby. If you want to be an expert home stager - becoming financially independent while doing what you love each day - our program is made for you.

Our expert home staging training will guide you through how to deal with clients and handle your home staging projects, but what sets this program apart is that we dive deeply into teaching you how you'll actually make good money at this. The difficult part of being a home stager is not deciding where to put the couch in a particular living room, it is learning how to grow a profitable home staging business - understanding what it will take for you to become a successful entrepreneur.

More and more Staging Diva Graduates are coming to us after taking a more "hands-on" home staging program where they totally missed the business-side of the equation. We also have several interior designers and Realtors® taking the Staging Diva Training Program.

We know you're a creative person and would hate a dull, dry business program. The Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program delivers the business knowledge you need, but the information is applied to the home staging field. Lots of amusing, and sometimes scary, true stories about actual staging projects and experiences are sprinkled throughout the 5 courses to suit the creative personalities of our students. You'll learn first hand from Debra Gould, a successful home stager, what it's really like to be in this business day to day, the challenges you'll face and how to overcome them. And you'll get to know a small group of students in each course as you listen to them ask Debra questions about the material.

I feel as though I got to know you and the other students during the Staging Diva program even though I was just listening to the course recordings. I have learned so much and feel more confident. I just staged my first home. It sold the first day on the market, with 2 other offers behind it in 3 days."

“The Staging Diva Program was the exact push I needed to get my home staging business going. The classes were inspiring, well organized, and a wealth of information. Debra’s entrepreneurial insight was exactly what I had to learn. She gave me the confidence to be proud and excited about my abilities, and to create a worthwhile service and business. I’m so glad I chose The Staging Diva Program instead of the other training programs offered.”

   
         
 

I'm anxious to get my business started - how long will the Staging Diva Program take to complete?

The Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program is made up of five courses on audio CDs. Each course will take about two hours to complete, so the full program takes about 10 hours (excluding the time you take to complete the homework assignments). Your program includes course notes for you to follow along with the audio. This program can be completed over the course of two days if it fits into your schedule, or you can spread it out over a number of weeks. It's entirely up to you!

How can I be sure the Staging Diva Program meets my needs?

Be aware that there are no industry standards for home staging programs, and there isn't an "official" home staging program. For the same reasons anyone can call themselves a home stager, anyone can offer a home staging training program.

You should definitely do your homework before signing up for any Home Staging training program, this one included.

You should be paying special attention to:

- course content and whether it meets your needs
- what past students say about the program
- the qualifications/relevant experience of your trainer
- whether your trainer is a recognized expert in the field
- ongoing support for graduates

In the Staging Diva Directory of Home Stagers, you'll find contact information for many of our graduates. We encourage you to contact any of them for their feedback on the program. You can also read comments from others here.

Debra Gould guest on HGTV

By the summer of 2003, home staging expert Debra Gould had already made her second appearance on HGTV.

It's your responsibility to research the credentials of the person or company offering the home staging training program you are considering. Most importantly, if it's your goal to make home staging a profitable business for yourself, ensure the person who will train you has experience and business credentials. Ensure they have built their own successful home staging company. Unless they have done so, how can they teach you to start one? An easy way to check this is to do a Google search on the name of anyone offering training and their company name.

Expert home stager, Debra Gould, is the world's only MBA graduate that offers home staging business training. She has obtained 'expert' status in the home staging field in the US and Canada, which is evident from the significant attention she has received from the media. She single handedly started her home staging business, Six Elements, Inc. and in record time it grew into a very profitable business. Visit her site and look at all the photos of her projects. Read through her students' reviews and comments from clients and agents.

"Rave reviews for Staging Diva Training. Definitely a 10 on a scale of 1 to 5! I knew I had artistic talent but was lacking business and marketing skills- major components of Staging Diva Training. I'm truly grateful for the feeling of self-confidence that the program instilled in me. Debra Gould's warm, friendly and caring demeanor--before, during and after the courses--really puts you at ease. She is obviously sincere in her desire to share her knowledge and expertise to help budding entrepreneurs."

   
         
 

When you complete all five courses, you will receive a personalized Graduation Certificate in the mail to include in your portfolio. You will officially be considered a Staging Diva Graduate.

Staging Diva Certificate of Completion

What is your reason for not offering "hands-on" Home Staging Training?

This expert home staging training program was designed for men and women who already have great taste and a talent for knowing how to arrange a home.

Our students have already been decorating since they were very young, and grew up to decorate their homes as well as the homes of friends and family members. Because it comes so naturally, most of these people never realized they had a real talent they could profit from.

If you don't have a sense of how to arrange a room's furniture and you aren't great with color, it's not realistic to think you can learn these skills in a few days, so we don't go there! However, if you have some talent in decorating this program will teach you what you need to do to turn it into a profitable home staging business.

You might enjoy this article by Debra Gould on the difference between home staging and interior design.

If you are considering a 'hands-on' home staging training program, ask for all details before signing up. A lot of home staging or interior redesign training programs take 30-50 of their students to a couple of houses in one day while everyone takes a turn at rearranging the furniture. Not only does it burn up your course time (traveling, waiting your turn) but how much will you actually learn?

Staging Diva Ultimate Color GuideIf one of the things you're worried about is how to choose colors for home staging consultations, Debra Gould's new ebook "Staging Diva Ultimate Color Guide: the easy way to pick colors for home staging projects" can help. It includes:

  • When to discuss color in your home staging consultation
  • The process Debra Gould uses when making color selections
  • Different paint sheen levels and when to use them
  • What to do about ugly wallpaper
  • Specific colors to use for walls, ceiling, trim, doors and floors
  • And more

No, there can only be one Staging Diva®! But upon completion of the program, you will be able to call yourself a "Graduate of The Staging Diva Training Program", or a "Staging Diva Graduate". The phrase "Staging Diva" is a trademark of Six Elements Inc. Any variation of it, related to the home staging field, would violate the trademark as well.

Answers to questions about the business of home staging

Is it expensive to start up a Home Staging business?

Not at all. You can start your home staging business with limited funds. There isn't even much need to spend a lot of money on advertising or to build up your inventory of furniture and accessories. All you need to get started is explained in the Staging Diva Course 2 - "The Business of Home Staging".

Expert home stager, Debra Gould, shares the secrets of how she built her business on a shoe string budget in Course 4 - "Staging Diva Sales & Marketing Secrets".

Will I still have time for my family if I start a home staging business?

Of course! You will be in control of the client appointments. You can grow a very lucrative home staging business, even if you only see clients during regular business hours. You don't have to work evenings and weekends. If the weekends or later in the day would be more convenient for you, schedule your appointments then!

Will I have to quit my day job to start a home staging business?

Not unless you want to! Because you're in control of booking appointments, you can grow your business by meeting with clients outside of your work hours. You should be aware, however, that you might have a difficult time furnishing empty homes as deliveries are normally done during regular business hours.

Kitchen Before Home Staging

Kitchen After Home Staging
Debra Gould transformed this kitchen with bold paint colors and new cabinet hardware. An inexpensive makeover that helped the home sell over asking price despite competing with fully renovated kitchens.

If you're very careful about the projects you take, or have the flexibility to take the odd day off from work, you'll be OK.

Many Staging Diva Graduates took our courses in the evenings and were able to start a profitable home staging business around a full-time job. Many of our graduates have young children, and lots of those are divorced mothers.

So can I make lots of money as a home stager?

Yes, but it won't happen overnight. You will have to work hard and stay focused on your goals. The more you take action, the more quickly you'll succeed. But your chances of making lots of money will be so much higher because you'll be following the steps outlined in the Staging Diva Program. The courses focus on all the critical pieces of the puzzle of having a successful home staging business based on what's already been tested in the real world.

Expert home stager, Debra Gould, shares with students how she was making up to $10,000 in a single month at her home staging business after only two years in operation. Debra makes more in a couple of hours than what it takes many people a full work week to earn.

By the time you complete the Staging Diva Training Program and learn how to properly charge for your services and speak confidently about what you do, you'll realize you don't have to feel embarrassed or insecure about charging a lot for your services.

There's nothing wrong with being successful and your clients will appreciate what you offer because they will get a substantial return on their investment in your home staging services.

How do I make sure I get paid? Who will pay my staging fees?

You could get paid by the Realtor®, the homeowner, or both. How to avoid spending your money up front on a client's behalf and how and when you will get paid are explained in great detail in Course 3 - "Taking the Mystery Out of Home Staging Consultations".

How do I determine what my home staging fees will be?

Nailing the proper pricing strategy is one of the top three factors which can determine whether you make an impressive income or get burned out and go broke.

We spend a significant amount of time on the subject of how to charge for your home staging services in Course 2. It also comes up again in Courses 3, 4 and 5.

  • It focused on the business side of getting started in home staging
  • Debra Gould, The Staging Diva, has a lot of media exposure
  • I talked to stagers who were already graduates of the program

A lot of our students come to us after taking other home staging training because they did not learn about proper pricing strategies. Then, after they've worked six months or a year and haven't made any money, the Staging Diva Program totally changes they way they do business.

Expert home stager Debra Gould has supported her family as an entrepreneur since 1989 - if anyone knows the importance of pricing, she does!

Am I going to have to paint, move heavy items and clean houses as a home stager?

Only if you want to! You will certainly recommend cleaning as an expert home stager as well as which rooms need fresh paint and in what color. You will also suggest moving the furniture, but that does not mean you have to do these things yourself.

Sometimes, you will spend a few hours with your client making recommendations; then they do the work themselves. For other clients, you might arrange for the cleaners, movers and painters to come in.

In Course 1 - "Cash in Decorating Homes to Sell", Debra introduces all the services you can offer as a home stager; she then explains how you can determine those you will handle yourself and those you will delegate.

Course 3 - "Taking the Mystery out of Home Staging Consultations" teaches what you will do once you're at a client's house, including "when" does "who" move "what"!

Instead of hiring employees to offer comprehensive services, The Staging Diva shows you how to outsource these to others and still make money on it in course 5 "Over 30 more ways to make money in home staging."

Is it a good idea to start my Home Staging business with a partner?

In Course 1 - "Cash in Decorating Homes to Sell", there is a Self Assessment Scorecard which will help you determine if you need a business partner.

Debra Gould never had a partner and she has grown her home staging company, Six Elements Inc. into a huge success. It isn't necessary to partner with someone to be a successful home stager.

If you are planning to have a business partner, we offer a $300 discount on a second Staging Diva Training Program registration. To take advantage of this offer, contact us with your partner's name after you've completed the first registration, and we'll give you a special link to get the partner discount on your second order.

Should I be looking for apprenticeship opportunities before I start my own home staging business?

Bedroom Before Home Staging

Bedroom After Home Staging
Debra Gould does not maintain her own inventory but she easily transformed this bedroom into an inviting guest room with some rental furnishings and accessories.

Debra Gould, The Staging Diva, receives many requests from people wanting to apprentice with her, but she turns them all down. Debra says, "In fact, I would charge someone if they wanted to shadow me around and see how I deal with clients, because I know they'd be doing it with the intention of taking what they learn and opening their own business."

The easiest thing involved in starting a home staging business is the "decorating" part of it. (That's under the assumption that you have a natural aptitude for arranging furniture in a room.) The real challenge is in turning your talent into a business that makes money, knowing how to price your services (most home stagers get that part wrong and can't earn a living), promoting yourself, building your credibility and how to focus on your four major target markets (two of these are ignored in most other training programs), other ways to make money as a home stager, and so on.

The Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program is focused on these elements (and many more) because it's taught by Debra Gould who knows what it takes to make a success out of a home staging business. She is one of the most successful stagers in a city with lots of competition. Widely recognized for her savvy business practices and marketing expertise, she is a seasoned entrepreneur.

We don't recommend you waste time apprenticing for someone else if you're truly committed to starting a home staging business. Learn all you can about the business part of the equation and go for it. You'll soon become a strong competitor of the people you had considered apprenticing with!
