Staging is the most important step in marketing your home sale or rental. According to HGTV Real estate "The number one mistake sellers make is failing to stage their home". Home staging is the art and business of packaging your home to appeal to the most discerning and broadest number of potential buyers. Statistics confirm that staged homes sell 70% faster and for more money than comparable properties without staging. Remember that 90% of buyers see a home on the internet before deciding to tour the home, so let us help you make the best first impression right from the start.
The cost of staging varies and is dependent on the scope of work, as well as the owners contribution and level of involvement in the staging process. Mauka Solutions can provide complete start to finish staging, or simply a consultation for do it yourself staging. We can work wonders with any budget, as we specialize in imaginative and budget friendly solutions for all of your staging and marketing needs. We offer preferred agent pricing for consultations and occupied home staging.
We like to point out that your staging cost may end up being free, as staging is typically cheaper than monthly carrying costs for properties which sit on the market too long. The cost of staging is always less than your first price reduction!

OCCUPIED HOME & RENTAL STAGING
Oftentimes homeowners or tenants must remain in the property while it’s being listed. We find that it can be challenging to create sales appeal while accommodating daily life. We work with homeowners to achieve the proper stress-free balance necessary to market and sell your home. Our background in marketing and interior design allows us to create a well-balanced and inviting atmosphere to attract buyers. We’ll help you streamline each room to remove clutter and highlight the positive attributes of your home while blending in our inventory of furniture and decor to make a statement that buyers will love.
If you are selling an occupied long-term rental property, short term staging and photo styling is an option. We can work with your photographer by staging room-by-room and replace the pre-existing items back once we're finished.
VACANT HOME & RENTAL STAGING
An empty home can present challenges for prospective buyers, as it can be difficult to imagine how it will look once furnished. 92% of buyers can not visualize their furnishings in a home when it is shown vacant. Empty rooms look smaller and buyers may not know the best way to configure furniture, or how to best use a space. We remove this obstacle by creating clean, accessible arrangements that highlight the best features and flow of rooms and spaces. We will skillfully and artfully stage the home and outdoor spaces to help buyers visualize themselves living there. A properly staged and furnished home sells 67% faster and for more money than a vacant home. Let Mauka Solutions provide a welcoming vision for your vacant home or condominium.
RENTAL STAGING, REFRESHING & PHOTO STYLING
Both large and small spaces can benefit greatly from staging and we have just the inventory for the job. Let's put your marketing budget to work for you. We'll show the house or condo in its best light by highlighting attributes and showing some style while we're at it. We can bring in furnishings and accessories selected just for your listing, creating an inviting and current look.
Each property is different, and our goal is to use our signature island style and pops of color to ensure photos will be vivid and attractive.
We use current and contemporary styles mixed with hints of island life to achieve quality photos offering a taste of what luxury living in Hawaii could be.
We can also provide live plants whenever possible, but lifelike artificial greenery is always an option.
VACATION RENTAL STAGING, REFRESHING & PHOTO STYLING
Your home or condo rental is a product with some fierce competition.
On any listing site, the first photograph you show has to be your best, or you might drive potential tenants away. Anyone who has booked any accommodation online will know that photos can make or break a listing.
Recent, well-staged, high-quality professional photography is a one-time investment that will pay off year after year when your booking calendar fills up weeks and months in advance.
The key to great rental income is in 5 star reviews and repeat customers. If you provide the barest minimum in the way of features and facilities, your guests will either be barely satisfied, or will complain after they leave. Expectations have risen significantly and what was seen as ‘luxury’ a few years ago, is now considered to be standard. Therefore you must go above and beyond your competition. The expression, "It’s just a rental" is no excuse for old and stained mattresses, cheap linens, clunky and rusted appliances, cast-off furnishings and dated decor. This isn’t a dollar-store business, it's a consumer-driven tourism industry that is rapidly achieving mainstream status as a vacation choice. It’s better to be on the leading edge of it, than in the bargain basement.
Let us refresh and update your rental or turn-key condominium listing. We work within your budget to select fresh and current replacements of linens, household and decor items to provide a five-star guest experience every time. Our team can arrange to work in your rental between tenant check-out and check-in times if needed. We can work side by side with your photographer to help style the photographs for maximum impact.
WHOLE HOME, ROOM & OUTDOOR SPACE MAKEOVERS
Did you like the look we achieved in the home you just sold? Let us help you arrange your furniture, select paint colors and organize your rooms to create a beautiful and tranquil home that reflects your personal style of living. We can also extend your living spaces by creating inviting outdoor environments for relaxation and recreation.
Treat yourself to a one-day home makeover... like a day of beauty for your home. While you are out, we will re-arrange your furniture to create a whole new look from your current furnishings. We can also hand select updated decor and accessory items for a fresh look.
ORGANIZATION AND DE-CLUTTERING SERVICES
We offer kitchen, closet, garage and office organization services for optimal space management and storage maximization. An organized and clutter free home is both relaxing and efficient. We can help you to edit and organize your belongings in a way that works with how you live and work in your space.
