Well from the looks of if... 5 different people so far. So there is NOT a lot written about the subject as of yet. I happen to own all but have only read 4 of the 5 books listed here so far. And I gotta admit... not all staging books are the same.
I am actually surprised to say that the ONE BOOK I thought would and SHOULD be the best of the bunch... is a bit of a let down on a number of levels.
While this industry is still on the grow, so I am sure there will be more an more written about staging in years to come.
With that in mind, I will say that the one book that I thought was one of the best for people (both sellers & realtors) wanting to LEARN basic and practical staging tips was Lori Matzke's book. Lori’s book was chock full of beautiful color example photos... and it is a lot easer to SHOW staging techniques than talk about it in just boring black and white text.
So here is the list of Staging Books I know of/have:
- Designed to Sell by HGTV
- Dress Your House for Success: 5 Fast, Easy Steps to Selling Your House, Apartment, or Condo for the Highest Possible Price! by Martha Webb and Sarah Parsons Zackheim
- Home Staging: Creating Buyer-Friendly Rooms to Sell Your House by Lori Matzke
- Home Staging: The Winning Way to Sell Your House for More Money by Barb Schwarz
- Peggy's Corner: Stage Your Home for Profit by Peggy Selinger-Eaton & Gayla Moghannam
These books all can be found on Amazon… if your are interested in learning more I strongly suggest you check out them out before you buy. I will say you need NOT buy all.
If anyone knows of any other books... please let me know.
