I found the book to be a practical, comprehensive, and provides detail, with all-inclusive information on how to sell a home faster and for more money-even in today’s challenging real estate market. The book features current facts and statistics, resource lists, photographs, room-by-room and step-by-step guidance, and home-preparation checklists. Its target audience includes homeowners, realtors, builders, investors, and home stagers, and those individuals interested in exploring a career in home staging. I have read many books on the subject of home staging and would definitely recommend this to be at the top of your must read list.
