Home stagers learn how to “talk the talk”
One of my summer projects, inspired by an MDF inquiry from Staging Diva Graduate Stacey Goade, was to create a new free resource for anyone interested in the home staging field. You may be completely new to this, or you may be well established as a home stager, but chances are you run into terminology or jargon phrases that you wish you knew more about. Like MDF, or Medium-Density Fiberboard, for example! Did you know that this is a cheap and easy-to-paint product you can use for cabinet doors, fireplace mantles and more?
The Home Staging Glossary by Staging Diva is made up of more than a hundred terms and phrases that will benefit home stagers— whether you need more help in understanding decorating, home staging and real estate terms, or even concepts to help you with the Internet-side of building your home staging business.
One of the things that makes this new FREE resource different is that it’s not filled with standard dictionary-type definitions. I explain things in simple language and include business tips and links to free articles I’ve written for further learning about the concepts.
For example, if you searched for “Alliance” you would find my definition and why the concept is important to home stagers, along with a link to a related article called “Home staging services don’t all have to be done by the stager.”
Some words and terms in the Home Staging Glossary by Staging Diva include: focal point, SEO, bidding war, buyer’s market, free estimate trap, virtual staging, web host, market niche, FSBO, tweet and target market.
Is there a term you’ve been wondering about?
Has a real estate agent or client used a phrase that you didn’t understand? Do you have a website and you’re wondering what the meaning of the terms companies use when they try and sell you their SEO or Pay-per-click services?
Visit the Home Staging Glossary now and either go through the pages one-by-one checking out phrases you would like to learn more about, or search for a particular term using the search box at the top of the page.
More terms are being added regularly and I invite you to email me with any new entries you would like me to create.
