Some of the questions Christine answers include:
What is the best way to hang art on the wall without hammering or drilling large holes into the wall.
What would you recommend to someone just starting in the business to use as staging furniture and decor – rental furniture or invest in an inventory? I’m just starting out and I’m afraid of committing to a storage space and too much inventory.
Do most people take out a business loan to buy furniture? I gather you need to be able to fill an entire house or 2 before you start marketing yourself as a stager?
Had a Realtor reach out, he wanted my portfolio and some MLS’s to see my work. I have not had any official work yet and referred him to my web site that has pictures of before and after, one address, mine. He has a staging company he uses yet wants to hire a second one to keep up with the demand. He is a high hitter and very seasoned. How do I get him to hire me since I am so new? Im afraid he will not be interested in my company.
I’ve been in business about a year and am still having trouble with pricing for vacant staging projects (in Tampa, FL). My clients are generally investors and realtors and all seem to be on a tight budget.
