So if you have not figured it out yet... I have a BIG mouth.
I would rather share what I know and NEW THINGS I have learned about staging then hold it as a trade secret. WHY? Because the staging industry is young and the faster we all share what we learn the better realtors are helped, seller's benifit and the quicker the enitire industry grows.
(For an AWESOME example of sharing to the industry, see fellow stager Cindy Lin's blog from earlier today)
Anyway, today I visited a Retirement Community to set up a time to come in (open my big mouth) and talk to "residents in waiting". What I mean is that the Retirment Community has new residents who are wanting to move in and enjoy their golden years... if only they could sell their existing homes.
The Retirement Community wants me to come in and share my ideas, insights, thoughts and benifits of staging with these folks. The management is being both savvy and proactive... as they want to educate and help future residents sell their current homes. HOW cool and clever is that?
Considering the audience, this will take a bit of targeted message crafting for sure... but it is an opportunity I welcome.
Oh and where did the Retirement Community find me and my big mouth? Right here on AR... because of my blogging.
CHEERS TO ACTIVE RAIN... it is making a difference!
