Are you inspired by The Block and want to learn how to stage and style a property?

We have one online self-paced course to give away in The Art of Home Staging – the same course that many of The Block contestants enrol in to help prepare for the program – together with a beautiful scented Ivory House candle.

Home staging is the art and business of making homes attractive to buyers in order to achieve the highest sale or rental price possible.

The demand for home staging or pre-sale property styling has reached an all-time high in Australia as real estate agents and vendors alike realise how much it can make a difference to final sale prices. This, combined with the popularity of TV shows like The Block and Selling Houses Australia, are making home staging an increasingly popular profession. They are also encouraging people to have a go themselves, and this course can help you do that.

The online self-paced course from the International Institute of Home Staging (IIHS) guides you step-by-step through some core design principles that are essential to staging your property successfully, in addition to specific home staging skills that show you how to showcase a property's strong points.

Students of the IIHS are all across Australia include many contestants from The Block.

This particular course aims to develop foundation knowledge and skills in the following areas:

  • Property buying and selling
  • Design elements in home staging, including styling
  • Home staging.

The course is offered as a distance-learning course with regular assessments to be completed and submitted. It can be started any time and done in the comfort of your home at your own pace.

The total prize value is more than $500 including the online course ($497) and the Ivory House scented candle. The competition closes on Sunday 16th November.
