Add Short-Term Rental and Airbnb to Your Business
You may know the Airbnb industry has grown 1000% since 2011!. The short-term rental market is exploding, even in small, non-touristy towns all across North America. Stagers have a fantastic opportunity to help short-term rental properties and their owners stand out and become profitable for years to come.
This industry is quickly becoming mainstream and the need for short-term rental design is in high demand. Designing for short-term rentals goes above and beyond making a space look inviting! Stagers are in a great position to capitalize on this exciting industry; helping property owners not only make the space look amazing but get it set up right the first time and create systems so each guest who checks in feels like they’re the first person to ever stay in the space.
Join Christine Rae for this 1hr webinar where her guest, expert short-term rental designer and Airbnb Superhost Sarah Karakaian will share tips and tricks so you can confidently add short-term rental design to your list of services.
When Sarah first presented this information at RESACON2019, everyone was blown away! She is a fabulous presenter, incredibly well informed and presents the information as actionable practice.
Participants will learn:
- The basics of short-term rental platforms – a working knowledge of the business-side will help you in your short-term rental design pursuits.
- When to employ design practices from hotel and residential industries and how to think outside the box – what works, what doesn’t, and why.
- Why it’s important to provide training for your hosts and cleaning teams(spoiler alert: first impressions and reviews are everything to success in the short-term rental economy!)
- About smart technologies that will benefit you or your clients in running short-term rental properties.

Is Staging Certification Necessary?
The home staging industry is unregulated and there is no “governing and regulating association”. Don’t let this alarm or dissuade you from pursing your dream. The Home Inspection industry is non- regulated also, in fact many industries are rooted in non-regulation. What it means is simply anyone can say they are a stager and anyone can provide a training course, online or in person………….. without ever having staged a home! Shocking isn’t it? We believe as a new business starting out you need as much ammunition and information as possible to position you as an expert instead of a newbie. Certification for a stager is as vital as a license is to a real estate agent.
The first house I staged sold over asking last night!! Put on the market at $339K and sold 9 days later for 400K! The happiness I feel is so indescribable!! I just want to thank you so much for BEING CHRISTINE RAE! I don’t think I could ever have done this without your guidance and amazing program! CAN’T WAIT FOR MORE PROJECTS! The real estate agent wants to work with me too !! WOOHOO!
Yesterday I was listening to and reviewing some of the information from the “FastTrack Business Package”, it occurred to me how much thought went into putting this package together. I felt I needed to say Thank You to you and your Team. All the information taught in the class and provided in this package has given me the confidence I need to start this new chapter in my life.
