    • We have a couple of ladies here on Maui who do that for the real estate industry. I think it’s a great concept. It helps more than people realize when trying to sell a home.

    • Thanks Cynthia,

      I am trying to find someone who is a Home Stager. I want to find out how they got started.  I am interested in becoming a Home Stager and thinking of doing a home study course.

    • I am presently taking a correspondence course through Haverhill for home staging.  They supposedly guarantee employment if you pass their class with 80% or more.  I did not do much research on this company before hand as it was on HGTV so I thought it must be a good company for home staging and certification.  I will be finished next month and hope to start working.

      On the other hand, I have been reading some negative things about Haverhill like they don’t usually pass anyone or if you do pass they don’t call you for employment.

      They do promise to return your money if you don’t pass and finish the course by the deadline.

      If you want to talk more, u can email me at [Link Removed]

      I hope this helps.

    • Hi Renee,

      Thanks for the info.

      Unfortunately, I have read the same negative things about them as well.  I’ve seen their commercials and thought about it, but.....

      Keep me posted!

    • I didnt realize that you had to be certified in becoming a home stager.

      I would think that you can just talk to some realtors and see if they would mind if you  staged one of their clients home before they do an open house.
      If the realtor likes you and thought there was some value to it- he/ she can recommend it and put it as part as their package to the sellers.

      I would also think the other thing to consider is that you wouldnt get paid until the home sells.

      If you are interested in this line of business maybe you can call one of the realtor offices and ask if you can talk to the realtors during their weekly meeting before they show their homes to the other realtors.
      Get an idea of the feeling and how much you can expect to get paid (it would be out of the commision I am sure- or from the sellers pocket from when they sell)

      I dont know alot- I was a realtor for 2 years so I dont have a lot of experience with marketing.  But it could be a great market especially if you also staged the outside of the home as well.
