Well it seems like everyone and there brother/sister is becoming a stager. Which is a good and bad thing.
GOOD... because it means the industry and the concept is growing.
BAD... because is seem like all a person needs to do is get a cute name, business card and an accredited/certified “staging fairy” can turn them into professional stager. Hocus Pocus!
Well tonite I JUST went to a staged home site where a “professional” proudly displayed their work. AND I KID YOU NOT... the BEFORE was BETTER THAN the AFTER! The BEFORE was BETTER!!!!!
NOT every home needs staging... AND JUST BECAUSE YOU MOVE STUFF AROUND DOES NOT MEAN IT IS STAGED!!!!!!
OK, I am a bit miffed! NO, in fact I am VERY miffed. WHY? Because this is NOT helping our industry grow.
Bad staging AND bad stagers makes the rest of us look like a bunch of charlatans trying to take people for a ride.
THE FACT that the "staging professional" did not even have an understanding of what constitutes good staging ticks me off. AND on top of it all this person has the audacity to boast that they are “accredited”.
