Home Staging ranks #1 Career Choice
According to a CNN list of ‘Seven emerging jobs poised for growth,’Home Stager ranked as the #1 career choice. Christine Rae, President of CSP International™ Staging Training Academy said she is not surprised. It is the result of two major factors.
The economic down turn in 2009 forced home sellers to strategically plan the marketing of their properties to help them sell faster and gain a higher ROI. Secondly the corresponding lay offs forced people in general want to take control of their destiny. A report from Royal Bank of Canada suggests 3.2million Canadians dream of having their own business at some point in their life.
CSP International™, the largest, independent staging training business recently confirmed global expansion plans with the appointment of Duncan Scott as their Director for International Sales
Scott, a former Equestrian, Real Estate agent, and stager said ” It is really important for people in this industry to align themselves with credibility; the staging industry is non-regulated and some sellers and stagers have fallen victim to poor training providers and poor service, leaving them disappointed and disillusioned.
CSP has always stood for quality education; taking steps to higher standards both in education and after market support in order to protect stagers, real estate professionals and homeowners alike.” Duncan states “Strong training is an essential foundation for any business.”
“We have rapid growth expansion plans, Rae said; CSP International™ has a solid reputation, consistent growth, excellent standards, great training and continuing education requirements.” Duncan added the “CSP Foundation program married with National vendors means a person can fast track their business. Continuing education is key to continued success and growth”
A market study by Royal LePage forecasts increases in house sales and prices during 2010. Although CREA said even with steady economic growth the real estate market will still struggle; house prices are expected to drop until the middle of 2010 across Canada. Rae and Scott both agree regardless of price, location or condition all property on the market can benefit by being properly prepared for market, making home staging the most effective tool to beat out the competition.
