PRES Staging Training is totally HANDS-ON!

PRES staging certificate training course is unlike any other! Home Staging Guru Dana J. Smithers has been teaching professional courses in interior decorating, interior redesign and home staging for over a decade. As a pioneer (she prefers trail blazer) in the redesign and home staging industry she has seen this industry go from $0 sales to a million dollar industry in North America.. Other countries around the world such as Australia and South Africa are quickly gaining momentum in providing staging services for their home sellers.

It has become the ‘norm’ in many cities across North America that a home would be staged prior to listing. A recent statistics indicates that about 70% of buyers want a ‘Move-In Ready Home’ because they do not have the time, money or energy to do that once they move. As a home stager you need to be able to advise your client on their best ROI (Return On Investment) and provide the best recommendations on how the home should be staged to stand out from other similar homes on the market. We teach you this in the PRES staging training course.

Not only does the PRES staging certificate training course teach you how to do this we give you HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE! We take you into REAL CLIENT’S HOMES + teach you in the FLUFF DESIGN STUDIO WAREHOUSE so you learn how to select rentals furnishings for vacant homes!

Remember the way you live in your home is not the way you sell your house…

The ‘real function’ of a room is the key to attracting a buyer’s eye! It’s a proven fact that most buyers are not good at visualizing what their furniture will look like in the homes they are viewing. This is why it is so important to create rooms that represent the very best way to live in this home.

PRES home stagers and redesigners are trained to know what the best function of each room or area is. Here are two examples of what helped this home sell:

The home seller used this room as their dining room and then it became the ‘catch all’ room. Not impressive for selling.

BEFORE as their Dining Room…

A Dining Room that’s not quite working for them…

AFTER as their Library a sanctuary looking out at the beautiful garden…

Quiet library sanctuary for anyone…

The home seller made this room into their Family Room but the furniture is awkwardly placed.

BEFORE as their Family Room….

An awkward family room with a gorgeous fireplace…

AFTER as their Dining Room…

Gorgeous and spacious dining room with a beautiful fireplace…

So the moral of the story is remember that the way you live in your home is not the way you sell your house! So turn your rooms back into the function that would appeal most to your home seller. It’s still all about creating great first impressions!
