The Seductive Power of Home Staging, written by Susan Victoria Phillips and published by Dog Ear Publishing, tells readers how to stage a home in seven easy steps.
Discover how to make your home more inviting and attractive to potential buyers in seven simple steps! Author Susan Victoria Phillips learned from experience that staging a home before putting it on the market increased the likelihood of a speedy and profitable sale. When viewing a home, buyers are often negatively influenced by small details such as clutter, bad smells and chipped paint. By the same token, carefully chosen accessories, well defined spaces, and simple window dressings can greatly tip the scales in your favor.
In The Seductive Power of Home Staging, Phillips walks readers through the process of preparing their home for viewings by pointing out potential red flags, suggesting worthwhile home improvement projects and listing ways to create inviting color and lighting schemes. She stresses that when staging a home, the goal is to create an atmosphere that is clean but not sterile, lived-in but not cluttered.
Potential buyers should be able to imagine themselves living in the house. Because many home buyers base their decision on feelings and instincts, one should never underestimate the importance of a fresh coat of paint and inviting furnishings! However, there are also some bigger renovations and repairs that might be in order. Phillips helps you determine which of these projects are worthwhile and which are better left undone.
With a unique background in theatrical set design, interior decorating, and home staging, Phillips gives sound advice that can save you thousands of dollars. Whether you are selling your home now or plan to sell it within the next five years, The Seductive Power of Home Staging is a must read!
