Storage and Home Staging

When you’re preparing to sell your home, your real estate agent may recommend staging. Staging is a great way to set your home apart from others on the market. Removing an abundance of personal items and clutter will make your home look more appealing and allow potential buyers to see themselves living there. While staging, consider moving your extra items into a storage unit. Here are some benefits of utilizing storage when staging your home to sell.

Remove Clutter

In order to make your home appear as tidy as possible, we recommend removing any unwanted or unnecessary items. You want to make a good impression on your potential buyers. If the space is clean and tidy, they’ll be able to imagine making your home their own. The benefit here is it will encourage you to sort through your belongings and make some decisions as to what to keep and what to get rid of. Sell or donate the unwanted items and store the rest!

Prep for your eventual move

Since you’re planning to move once your home sells, removing extra items is a great way to jumpstart your process! By reducing clutter and storing items that are used less frequently, you will have fewer items to haul on moving day. Everyone knows that moving isn’t easy, so anything to lighten the workload day-of is a step in the right direction.

Keep your items safe

Storing your personal items is a great way to keep them safe. When you have extra foot traffic in your home through the selling process, you may have certain items you want to secure. Moving those items out of the home into a secure storage unit is a great way to keep them safe.

As you can see, there are many benefits to utilizing storage during the staging or moving process. Your goal is to present your home in the best light possible to potential buyers, while also making sure your personal belongings are secure.
