Becoming a home stager was a natural evolution for Debbie Fiskum who worked with her husband doing “fix n flips” and rentals in Denver, Colorado before taking the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program and starting her business, Perfect Home Staging Denver.
It didn’t take long for Debbie to learn that there was a future in home staging because through successful staging projects she was steadily educating her market that staging works.
One excellent example is a “fix n flip” she was hired to do for a real estate investor husband and wife pair last month. The wife was sure home staging was an excellent idea but the husband wasn’t so quick to get on board. The home had been beautifully renovated and upgraded and he didn’t see the need to go further before going to market.
Luckily, the wife ended up making the ultimate decision to go ahead and stage the vacant home before putting it up for sale.
Rental furniture and accessories were brought in. Furniture was kept minimal but Debbie splurged on accessories, creating vignettes and “emotional pockets” throughout the home to draw in potential buyers.
To her clients’ delight, the home sold in two and a half weeks, at Christmas time!
That’s all it took to educate the husband about the power of home staging and needless to say, both investors will be staging all of their future investment properties.
“Taking the Staging Diva Program helped me to speak more effectively to agents, investors and homeowners and to convince them of the value of home staging,” writes Debbie. She adds, “I gained insight about marketing my business and that continues to be an ongoing process as I follow Debra on Twitter and keep up with her blog posts. By doing the things Debra recommends in her program, you can build a profitable business.”
