Home Staging Credentials

Many training companies claim to offer home staging credentials, or they say that you will be "certified" or "accredited" after taking their courses. It is important to know that home staging is a completely unregulated field. Therefore, there is no such thing as an official credential to become a home stager. There are also no completely independent associations in the home staging field. All are tied in some way to a particular training company (because they are owned by them, or their owners hold executive positions within the organization) or group of training companies (because they pay to be endorsed by the association). Furthermore, most companies offering so called "credentials" will charge you an ongoing fee to say that you have their certificate. This is further proof that it's not a real credential, you are essentially paying to license their terminology. Clever for their marketing, but not necessarily in your best interest as an aspiring home stager. Additional Reading: 15 Questions You Should Ask Before Paying for Home Staging Courses
