Current Statistics on ASP Staged Homes proves that Staging WORKS. 95% of all ASP Staged Homes sell on average 11 days or less and sell for 17% MORE!
You may ask yourself,
You may ask yourself, "Why would I need or want to Stage® my home with an ASP® or ASPM®?"
"What is an ASP® or ASPM® anyway?" And, "Can't anyone Stage® a home professionally?"
It is interesting to see how many people have started to call themselves Stagers out in the world today. Basically they have just proclaimed themselves as Stagers. After teaching the concept of Home Staging across the country since 1985 and after Staging 5,000 homes myself since 1972 I have begun to see self-proclaimed Stagers appear who have no training or Home Staging experience at all. These people have not studied how to Stage Homes... they just heard about the idea and began to call themselves Stagers.
As in any industry it is so important that training and professionalism be the norm, not the exception. This is what we are all about at Stagedhomes.com and also our International Association of Home Staging Professionals Association, www.iahsp.com .
At Stagedhomes.com we provide the most detailed and finest Staging training in the Staging industry today. Our Designations of ASP or ASPM® mean "Accredited Staging Professionals" or "Accredited Staging Professional Masters". In other words our graduates are Accredited and are thoroughly trained to Stage® Homes as Staging was intended to be done. This is what the public can now count on. ASPs® and ASPMs® have invested a great deal of time, talent, and financial investment to become Accredited Staging Professionals. The ASP®/ASPM® Designation now sets the standard and is the benchmark of excellence and training in the Staging Industry I am privileged to have first started in 1972!
ASPs® and ASPMs® have the guidelines, skills, talent, and knowledge to be able to serve the client creatively in the best way possible and at the most reasonable cost. ASPs® and ASPMs® follow a professional code of ethics and have set policies, as standards of excellence to follow, as they serve their clients.
As the woman who actually invented Staging and created the Staging movement and industry I feel it is crucial for the homeowner, the buyer and the Realtor® to make sure that the Staging is being done and performed by a ASP®/ASPM® Stager who has been professionally trained. When you list your home for sale, list it with an ASP® Realtor® and then have it professionally Staged by an ASP®/ASPM® Stager and you will be served in the highest way possible to help ensure you receive top dollar for your home in the most reasonable amount of time. You will find the perfect ASP®/ASPM® Realtor® and Stager right here on our site. Just go to 'Find an ASP® Now' on our menu bar above and enter either the zip, city, state, or even country where you live and you will find our ASPs® ready to serve you. You can also go to our ASP®/ASPM® Featured pages found through the banner on this page to find featured ASPs® who have also written more information about themselves for you.
I hope this helps you, the visitor to our site, know more about why you should always work with an ASP® Realtor® or ASP®/ASPM® Stager. The proof is in the training, and the education our ASPs®/ASPMs® have and in the quality of work our people do for you! Thank you for coming to Stagedhomes.com!
We look forward to serving you!

LOCAL PROFESSIONAL EARNS ACCREDITED STAGING PROFESSIONAL® DESIGNATION
The softening Real Estate market is increasing homeowner demands for tools to help bring a profit in the sale of their homes. ASP Home Staging has become one such tool. By properly cleaning, decluttering and preparing a house before it is listed on the market, homeowners have a better chance of selling their home at or above list price.
In a recent study conducted by Stagedhomes.com, of over 1000 homes, (55% Vacant, 45% occupied) across the United States and Canada, showed that homes that were prepared for sale by an Accredited Staging Professional (ASP®) were on the market 80% less time before selling than non ASP Staged Homes. And the average ASP Staged Home sold for more dollars depending upon the market, price range of the house and the neighborhood. Averages ran from 7.9 % more dollars to over 25% or more than non ASP Staged Homes.
Janette Zahar and Invest in Staging is now serving the Boston area as an Accredited Staging Professional (ASP®).
