Top Real Estate Brokers Share 5 Home Staging Tips, Ewa, Hawaii

The potential sale of a house means an exciting opportunity to start fresh elsewhere. However, before you can actually move to a new place, you have to find a buyer for your current one. Staging is a requirement to sell your home in a timely manner and for a higher price. Top real estate brokers might recommend using a professional staging company, but below are a few tips you can use as a homeowner to get your residence ready for sale on your own.

5 Tips for Home Staging From Top Real Estate Brokers

1. Declutter

A disorganized home is not appealing, so make a conscious effort to donate or throw out items you don’t need anymore, including furniture. Staging companies will often only use half of a homeowner’s pieces because it makes the house look more spacious.

2. Paint

3. Fix the Kitchen

Top real estate brokers will tell you the kitchen is the room that sells a house, but that doesn’t mean you need to completely renovate yours. Instead, purchase updated drawer fronts, cabinet doors, and hardware. The same goes for any appliances. For example, call the manufacturer of your dishwasher to learn if you can buy a new front for it. If that’s not an option, laminate paper is a quick and easy option.

4. Enhance the Lighting

Your home becomes more inviting with additional light. Instead of purchasing more fixtures, switch out the bulbs in your current lights so there’s 100 watts in total for every 50 feet. Also, use a variety of light types in a room. For example, a mixture of ambient overhead lighting, pendant lighting, and an accent wall light makes a room more comfortable.

5. Add Fresh Flowers

Your home will look much more welcoming with some fresh flowers and plants. However, you don’t need to spend big money on floral arrangements. Instead, try grabbing flowers and other clippings from your yard. Place them on kitchen countertops, bathroom sinks, nightstands, dining room tables, and any other surfaces. Plus, they’ll make your home smell lovely.
