It’s true what they say – knowledge truly is power.
Home staging is a self-regulated industry. Unlike real estate, you can choose to ignore professional training. And people who do often struggle, fall into debt buying inventory without planning, and give up within their first year of business.
While you may have a creative eye, there is significant value to being certified as a home staging professional, and having a greater understanding of home staging principles. With your RESP® Certification, you will learn how to provide professional home staging services (not just make a home look pretty), manage clients, find clients, run a business, and scale without burning out, in order to provide your clients with the highest quality of service. There are a number of changes coming to the home staging industry, and a level of regulation is in the works, with certification being a requirement. What the “regulation” will look like as a whole has yet to be determined, but you can expect to see this rolled out over the next couple of years. Whether you are operating your business part-time or full-time, your clients will have an expectation to receive expert advise for preparing their largest investment for sale, ensuring that they attract the right buyers and maximize the sale of their home.
We want you to have realistic expectations, and we want to help you to achieve your goals. As with any career you embark upon, it is important that you understand what is entailed and what will be expected from you. Home Staging is gruelling work but very rewarding if you have a passion for it. SLS Academy and the Real Estate Staging Professional (RESP) Certification can provide you with the professional home staging training you need ~ providing a real-world view. Your professional training can be a key differentiator in the marketplace.
