Decorating vs Staging to Sell a House

Homeowners decorate with color, furniture placement, surfaces, window treatments and accessories to personalize a home to make a statement about themselves.

Stagers like me use the same items, but use different principles to help the house make a statement to prospective buyers.

using professional stages seems to be increasingly in popularity these days.

Fox noticed the same trend that you have.
June ’11 Fox news did a story on the "Top Five Businesses to Start in 2011" and design and staging is listed as #2! With a 12-month growth of 6.2%, staging and design is one of the few industries that appears to be untouched by the economy woes. Listed as number two in the line-up, the article states that "In bad times, people want to make the best of what they have. In real estate, for example, Horton said this trend is common."

Can any service business grow if it doesn’t work?
