Increase Your Profits
by Working with Builders
This online learning session helps you take on the challenge of working with builders by reviewing, step by step, how to make this strategy come alive.
- Do you want to consistently have builders as a part of your portfolio?
- Do you want a healthy business segment from this niche?
- Unsure of the “How”?
Steps include understanding your budget allotment for this new initiative and writing a detailed plan for spending. Even when budgeting seems difficult there are ways to put trust in an estimate based on trends from your occupied staging jobs. You will walk away with a comfort level doing this. Maybe you see other stagers building their inventory and making vacant staging a priority but you just don’t know how to approach it or there’s a fear that’s dissuading you. I think many stagers have that same collective sentiment. Likewise, managing your budget can be even trickier so we will dive into how best to forecast to not take on too much debt when expanding.
Another consideration when adding vacants/builders to your portfolio is maintaining the perfect space allocation; when to expand, when not to expand. Evaluating all of your options, along with understanding timing is a logical next step.
The last stage of preparation is getting to know the builder in order to determine your pricing and contracting. At the conclusion, once all the steps are laid out, you will be able to initiate a solid builder strategy with the utmost of confidence.
Participants will learn:
- How to prepare a budget and allocate funding prior to approaching a builder
- How to plan for appropriate inventory purchases and space allocation
- How to understand the builder’s position and close the sale
