Finding a realtor you can trust is key

Sponsored by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Hawaii Realty

The housing market is constantly changing, and that can make selling your home a daunting task. Luckily, the agents at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Hawaii Realty are always on top of neighborhood trends. Tracy Bradley and Earl Lee are joining HI Now host Kanoe Gibson to share some tips for sellers.

When looking for an agent to sell your home, the number one thing to do is find someone who loves your home as much as you do. This is because they will be the one responsible for telling the story and painting the picture of life there for potential buyers and co-operating brokers. You should also look for someone with a clear strong point of view. It’s the agent’s job to sell your home for the highest price in the shortest amount of time. They should come to your appointment with a plan ready!

When it comes time to show your home, de-cluttering is key! A good realtor will make strong recommendations about what needs to be done in order to reach your highest return on investment. This could be anything from just stripping away some personal items, to full staging, to minor home improvement and remodeling.

It’s also important to keep these things in mind when looking to improve your home to get the biggest return:

  1. Curb appeal and smart landscaping investment. This isn’t planting the garden of your dreams. Think clean up and pops of color with well-placed flowers.
  2. Paint inside and outside to give a fresh feel.
  3. Minor kitchen and bathroom remodeling. Paint or refinish cabinets and add new pulls or hardware.
  4. Lighting. Nice, bright lighting will make photography and showings pop!
