Begin in 7 days or less, work from home, and build up a six-figure business with a guide based on the author's years of work. From furniture rental and business record-keeping to check-lists for sellers and enhancement design tips, this manual is a unique 'must' for any library catering to either re-career readers or those seeking tips on home staging. --Midwest Book Review

From the Author

My goal in writing this guide was to help anyone learn in the comfort and privacy of their home how to start and grow a successful staging business - and to do so without having to take an expensive, time consuming seminar. It has been a work in progress. I'm delighted that so many peole, from every background and experience level conceivable, have found the guidance to be helpful, practical and easy to understand. It is very gratifying to know that I have had a small part in helping so many women achieve their goals and dreams and become as independent as they choose to be.

Compared to the two other books I've read on the subject, this one is by far the best.

I'm switching careers and have decided to try the home staging business. After reading about the author and her experience, I ordered this book and I'm glad I did. It provides the exact information I was seeking. It's informative and written in an extremely easy style to follow. Although some of the information is obvious/basic - (decluttering) - it is important enough it probably should be emphasized. The author even provides a list of potential names for your new business. She also includes a question and answer section in which she provides good guidelines for potential situations. I purchased another book at the same time I ordered this one and there is no comparison. I would definitely recommend this book.

As an interior designer, I was looking to expand my business into the home staging arena, but wasn't really interested in spending thousands of dollars on one of those 3-day courses. After reading many reviews, I decided to purchase this book and I am so glad that I did! I think the author provides an in-depth guide about home staging as well as steering you in the right direction to operate your own home staging business. I found her book to be very informative and thought she provided great tips and examples. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in running their own home staging business. Also, I would recommend her other book, Rearrange It! - How to Start and Grow a Profitable Home-Based Redesign Business - In my opinion, I think you would need both these skills to successfuly run either business.

I ordered the book based on another review about it. I was pleased with the information contained in it, however, I will say that it is written like she is speaking to you and feels at time to be unorganized as to topic. With the subtitle leading you to believe you can be up and running in 7 days, there really is not a Seven Day plan as such, but you need to extract what is needed from each chapter. I also found a few of the things she suggested in staging to be a bit odd, ie: cleaning out gutters. Although I realize this would be necessary in selling a home, I do not feel this should be the job of a Home Stager. There is a lot of marketing information and some good ideas as to how to market the business, which I did find helpful. Most books like this on this topic generally tout the products of the author and this is no exception to that. However, unlike another well-known home stager-author they are not mentioned on every page. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to start this business, but I also feel that if you have no design background, this book will not help in that. My suggestion is to read all you can on the subject, take what works for you, then build your business.

Format: Paperback
This book is remarkable. This is an extensive course in house staging. It covers every facet of the business and industry.As I am from Australia I was unsure of the relevance to my situation but can state that this is suited for any one thinking of getting into the staging industry anywhere in the world. The book misses nothing. In addition to teaching Home Staging it also teaches business techniques, marketing, interior decorating, buyer psychology, seller psychology. With plenty of photo examples, business forms and question and answer examples this was the best read on this subject I have come across. The author addresses every possible situation and the training is written as if she was in the room giving you one to one training. As there are no means of doing any kind of courses covering this industry in Australia, I was lucky to find this book and training and believe I have saved myself a lot of money in doing so. This is far more thorough than any of the interior design courses I have done. This book is straight to the point with many hints and ideas from the author. It is well written and is easily understood by any reader.

A brilliant training source

Home Staging for Profit: How to Start and Grow a Highly Profitable Home-Based Staging BusinessThis book is great! It provides so many things to consider when staging a home as a business. It covers the business as it pertains to both the customer side and the importance of running the business in a structured way. It also covers working with people, such as realtors, who can be a good source of referrals. It provides samples of forms, letters and suggestions as to wording for advertising and much more. It really is a complete reference book for a well run and successful home staging business.

I purchased Home Staging for Profit to find out more about this area of design support. I am a decorator/redesigner and was very pleased to see the amount of detail and information. It contains everything you would need to know to provide these services and how to set up and manage the business. It is very clear and offers a number of lists, forms and other resources. I was so impressed that I have enrolled in the author's training, mainly to get the other books. The book is sometimes repetitive and does offer the other resources, but it is information that is well worth repeating. I would recommend this book highly!
