  • (1888PressRelease) October 24, 2009 - San Antonio - If you’re thinking twice about trying to sell your house, Susan Dietzman, a real estate investor and realtor, encourages you to go for it. She recently wrote a book describing the home staging process for people who don’t have the time or money to hire a professional home stager. The book, Simple Home Staging on a Budget, promises insider staging techniques culled from her years of experience buying and selling houses.

    This timely book, which can be accessed from, comes on the scene after a few years of dismal sales and lowered prices for existing homes. In it, Dietzman clearly guides her readers through a proactive approach she used to sell her own houses faster and at a higher price.

    She says, “The competition is astounding. When you consider all the comparable homes on the market (maybe even in your neighborhood), you’re going to be really frustrated if no one even looks at your house. The key to an offer is drawing people in; that starts at the curb.”

    Home Staging has been known for years as the key to positioning your house above others in a sea of similar properties. The process of positioning furniture, using artfully placed objects, and creating an oasis of pleasant sensations for prospective homebuyers was made popular during the heyday of the real estate boom. But in a bleak housing market, the process is far more critical for attracting that second look.

    While there may be many professional home stagers in your town, their fees can be in the thousands. If you need straight talk about what people want to see, smell, and feel when they walk through your front door, Simple Home Staging on a Budget is the only source you need because it shows you exactly how to get your prospective buyer to respond to certain proven cues.

    “The only advantage a professional stager can provide is encouragement to the homeowner who is dragging her feet, and physical help,” says Dietzman. “I’ve helped many friends and clients sell their houses with my guide to home staging, so I finally decided to put these tips into a book so that more people can benefit.” These days Dietzman finds she needs to be less of a cheerleader about convincing folks to use these staging techniques before listing a house, because people are desperate for their houses stand out in this market.

    “These tricks almost always work,” she asserts. “It doesn’t even matter what style your house is because most buyers respond to many or all of these tips; a well-staged home almost magically wins them over.”

    After seeing the results of home staging her own properties, Dietzman swears she will never attempt to sell one of her homes without feathering the nest with a few specific details. An empty house has its own set of challenges, just as a home bustling with family activities. Both strategies are outlined and thoroughly explained in the book, with solutions for alleviating the stress most owners feel while maintaining order in a house they are actively trying to sell and live in at the same time.

    In addition to photos and examples on almost every page, the book offers suggestions for placement of key objects that compel prospective buyers to come closer. Getting your buyer inside the rooms is what you want, and the psychology of homebuyers is universal regarding certain key factors. The human component is critical; the homeowner needs to see his home from a different point of view.

    If you’re short on cash, Simple Home Staging on a Budget, is long on easy and creative ideas from a real estate insider. Property owners will discover how to make their house feel like “home” to everyone who enters. The result: a quick sale.
