Do you want to sell your home at a premium price — now?

If you want to sell it fast, and for more money, you need to stage—that is, you need to package your home in a way that emphasizes its strengths, downplays its weaknesses, and immediately appeals to prospective buyers. According to 91% of realtors, home staging is the way to go.

But you don’t need to pay a professional thousands of dollars to give your home a strategic makeover. In Home Staging That Works, you’ll learn all the secrets, tricks, and techniques of the trade.

Staging is all about making a spectacular first impression on a buyer, and staging expert Starr C. Osborne gives you step-by-step, room-by-room instructions on what to do, keep, toss, fix, paint, replace, avoid, update, show, hide, highlight, and more. First, she teaches you how to see what a buyer sees. (Beware: that buyer will probably notice more about your house in 30 seconds than you’ve noticed in the last two years.) Then, she shows you how to make your home look big, bright, warm, and welcoming—in short, everything the buyer has been looking for.

In Home Staging That Works, you’ll learn how to:

Focus on your potential buyers’ tastes (not your own).

Create curb appeal.

Drive Internet interest with photos that flatter your home.

De-clutter and pre-pack at the same time.

Clean and repair your home without spending a fortune.

Keep your home sale-ready–without being afraid to live in it.

Packed with bulleted “must-do” lists, real-home examples, and 65 photos–many “before and after”–to illustrate the dramatic difference staging makes, Home Staging That Works demonstrates how easy and rewarding it can be to redesign your home for the ideal buyer.
