Professional Home Staging® is the fastest growing new career opportunity in the real estate industry. Recommended by top real estate agents and as seen on television, Home Staging® is professionally preparing homes for sale, so that they appeal to the most amount of buyers and generate the highest price in the least amount of time on market. In today’s market conditions, Staging® sells homes. Home Staging® is NOT decorating, fluffing, interior design or redesign! Instead, Home Staging® is detailing, de-cluttering, depersonalizing and preparing a seller’s home to give it a “model home” appearance so that the potential buyer can “see” themselves living in the home.

The Accredited Staging® Professional® Course was created by Barb Schwarz, the Creator of Home Staging®, President and CEO of and the International Association of Home Staging® Professionals. Barb developed the concept of Home Staging® in the early 1970’s and has since educated more than one-million people on the subject. She is a nationally known and award-winning speaker, author and trainer.

Statistics gathered by shows that 94.6% of homes Staged® by an Accredited Staging® Professional®, ASP®, sell within 33 days compared to an average of 196 days for non-Staged® homes. ASP® Staged® homes are on the market 83% less time than a non-Staged® home.
