9:30 AM - 1:00 PM


With the rising use of litigation across the real estate industry it is imperative that a real estate agent be educated on the most up-to-date laws, concepts, trends and resources available to their clients.

By not being properly informed on the subject of staging the agent is putting themselves and the real estate firms they represent at considerable risk for potential lawsuits for breach of duty. By taking this course not only will an agent be able to effectively communicate the benefits of staging to their clients, the agent will be able to facilitate the screening of a professional stager. Not all stagers are created equally. Hiring a hobbyist stager who may be operating unethically and may not be following standard staging practices could not only adversely affect the sale of the home, a homeowner could end up in a liability situation should damages or injury occur during the staging or showing process as a result of using a hobbyist stager. This course will educate the agent on how to look for red flags that would indicate a stager is operating their business as a hobby vs. operating as a legitimate professional, including but not limited to knowing the type of insurance a stager should carry as well as understanding standard staging contract clauses.
