Only about 6% of homeowners who want to sell their homes utilize the concept of home staging to improve their chances of getting a quick sale, with lots of offers driving the sale price higher than the asking price. While staging cannot guarantee results like this in every case, statistics prove that staged homes typically out perform non-staged homes. Barbara Jennings, the originator of home based training in home staging at Decorate-Redecorate.Com, believes homeowners should hire a professional stager to do the work for them but if they can't, they should at least attempt to do it themselves.

Home Staging for Yourself cuts through all the hype and unessential detail found in most books on the subject and gives readers a really useful and thorough 50+ page checklist of the most common tasks one should consider when staging a home. Not all tasks listed will need to be addressed, however diligent homeowners should at least check to see if these details need to be addressed.

A typical home is made up of several distinct areas: the exterior front, the interior and the exterior back and sides. Readers will discover that using a comprehensive checklist that covers all areas, plus room by room analysis, is the handiest way to make sure the home is properly prepared to be sold for the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time. Each bulleted task is itemized in advance for the user with plenty of blank lines to write in specific tasks unique to the home. A nice sampling of before and after pictures of staged homes is included in the back. This booklet/check list, so popular with professionals, constitutes the core of what recommendations they would make to a client. The guide serves as the perfect prompter to cover one's bases in five categories: 1) Decluttering; 2) Depersonalizing; 3) Sanitizing; 4) Repairing and 5) Enhancing. Each step is important to achieving the best results. The guide can also serve to help owners and their agents make sure that a professional stager is implementing the right techniques in the right places.

Jennings is also author of Home Staging for Profit, Staging Luxurious Homes and Rearrange It, among other helpful guides.
