There’s a new St. Louis home staging job for graduates of the Staging Diva Home Staging Training Program.
It’s located in Godfrey, Illinois, to be precise.
Lisa, the home owner will be living in her home while it’s on the market. You’ll have plenty of furniture and accessories to work with. You’ll see whether you need to add any new items.
She’s really planning ahead. The home is scheduled to go on the real estate market in 5 months.
Listing the home could be delayed because the owner is building a new house. Either way, you’ll have plenty of time to get this home into tip top shape!
The house you’re being asked to stage is approximately 2,200 square feet and will be listed in the $250,000 to $300,000 range.
Lisa, the owner, totally understands why home staging works. In her request for a home stager she said:
I want my house staged and ready while we build our next home. No clutter and properly staged to optimize selling potential and be showing-ready for the real estate market. A professional home stager’s eye will be a game changer for me!
Won’t it be nice to connect with a potential client who totally “gets it” and will be open to all your suggestions and improvements?! 😀
This Referral Could Easily Turn Into a Decorating Project Too
While Lisa hasn’t mentioned it, I foresee a tremendous opportunity to get a decorating project for her next home out of this single job referral.
You’ll establish a rapport with her in helping her prepare her current home for sale.
Why wouldn’t she seek your advice on choosing finishes and paint colors for a house she’s building from scratch? You could help with how her current furniture will fit in the new space, and help her shop for anything new that she’ll need.
One or both projects will be a great success story for your home staging portfolio.
St. Louis Home Staging Job — How to Apply
Apply for this St. Louis home staging job couldn’t be easier.
Simply complete the form at the Staging Diva Home Staging Project Referral Service.
Please be sure to include “St. Louis Home Staging Job” as the project location in the first line of the form.
This St. Louis home staging job will be referred first to members of the Staging Diva Directory of Home Stagers for free.
There is no referral fee for Directory members even though we’re playing “match maker” for you.
If there isn’t a Directory member available for this project, it will be open to any Staging Diva Graduate with a professional Internet presence. (It’s difficult to convince a client to hire you if they can’t review your staging portfolio, after all!)
If you get any paid work through this referral (and you’re not already a Staging Diva Directory of Home Stagers member), there will be a $125 referral fee. You can build into your home staging consultation fees.
It’s entirely up to you.
This one-time fee only applies if you get paid work from this referral. If you get a decorating project for Lisa’s new home, on top of this home staging job, there’s still only the single $125 fee. And if you receive future home staging projects from the client’s agent, there is no additional fee.
You have nothing to lose applying for this position if you’re in the Greater St. Louis area, and everything to gain!
Please note, if you do not follow the instructions to apply for this home staging job, you will not be considered.
Are Home Staging Clients Able to Find You?
If you’re not already a Staging Diva Graduate consider that just one good project would more than pay for your entire training program. Plus building and hosting your web page on the high-traffic Staging Diva Directory of Home Stagers for an entire year!
