By this time you have likely heard quite a bit about the process of home staging.
Between TV and the internet home staging has simply become an accepted part of selling a home.
It seems that staging is another one of the real estate related passions that is sweeping the nation along with loft condos and home flipping.
In reality this is really a bonus to the industry as it is helping to tech people how to get the most from their real estate sale.
At the base level it helps people to understand that their homes have both strong and weak points and how to properly deal with these aspects in a productive manner.
It has greatly assisted in creating a generation of home owners who have a better understanding of how to sell real estate properly.
Some owners are shocked after hiring a home stage to come in and work over their home.
"Where is everything?" they ask.
Then once it has been explained, it makes perfect sense to them and when looking for their new home they may start looking at things that they learned during the staging of their home.
Getting smart about what is required for a home to valuable will only lead to smarter buyers and smarter sellers.
as with any industry when you have intelligent and knowledgeable people in it, the industry booms.
Perhaps not in the fashion that it did in the past years, but this elevation in the market should be more stable and have a stronger base.
As stated before TV is partially responsible for this as the number of shows that deal with real estate is staggering.
One thing that should be keep in mind though, is the fact that most of these shows show you the success stories of investors, stagers and flippers.
There are also shows that deal with the disasters and correcting them.
The problem is that we typically don't see the middle of that equation, the part where investors fail or home sales do not happen promptly and for a nice profit.
This is unfortunate as that is an integral part of a good real estate education.
Learning where mistakes are commonly made so that buyers and sellers, both can profit from the knowledge would really help to further the education of people interested in real estate.
