A strong design speaks volumes.

Home Design, Decor, and the concept of Staging:  how a few tips and tricks can help you transform your home's interior and exterior to add design value quickly.  At Eric T Chu - SC Realty, we stage minimally but with big impact to help prospective buyers and renters envision a property as home.

Buyers, Sellers and our Property Investors aim for

  • Space to help everybody envision the concept of "home"
  • Interiors that are warm and inviting but luxurious and clean
  • Detail and professional photos while advertising to warrant requests for more information

DIY Actionables to help improve your home's value

  1. Exterior - curb appeal: plants, paint, clear view of house
  2. Interior - consider the areas you spend the most time in
    • Entryway: Keep this area clear, inviting and clutter free; leave some touches that indicate the home is well-kept and well-lived in, such as coat racks, hangers in closet, a shoe rack, a tasteful doormat or umbrella bucket
    • Kitchen: Consider emptying trash prior showings and store away foodstuff and miscellaneous items in drawers while home is being staged; use clean lines and choose neutral colors
    • Bathroom
    • Master Bed/Bath
  3. Parking - Driving on Oahu is a normal convenience:  parking proximity to front door; space size & accessibility, covered/open, and maintenance; and, number of stalls available or street parking availability can often be concerns for buyers / sellers / investors
