Selling Your Home? Here’s How An Extra Storage Can Help

February 25, 2020

After living in a home for years, people tend to fill it with many possessions, to the point where there might be some clutter. If you are taking the next step by planning on selling your home, then you may want to invest in a self-storage unit. Make sure your possessions are stored safely while you try to make your home presentable and appealing to any potential buyer.


Space Sells

When giving a tour of your home, make sure that the potential buyers can visualize themselves living in it. This can be difficult when too much of the space is occupied by all of your own possessions. If it feels too full, then it may feel too cramped or smaller than it actually is. You want the buyers to feel like the home is full of possibilities. They need to be able to imagine themselves living there.


The home needs to be spacey enough for the potential buyers to imagine their own possessions in it. You can leave some furniture to help future occupants visualize what they could bring in, but make sure there is not any clutter on them. You also want to rearrange the furniture so that there is enough room for potential occupants to walk around.


Declutter and Organize

A storage locker has space for a lot of objects, but you might not be able to move every single thing into the unit. Prioritize by figuring out which items need to be stored so as to depersonalize your home. Prepare by removing family photographs, trophies of personal achievements, and artworks that display your family’s personality. 


The potential buyers might want to see the space within closets and cabinets. If you have an abundance of clothes, cups, and dishes to the point where these storage spaces are overflowing a bit, put them in the storage locker. You do not need to get rid of everything temporarily, but move enough items out of these spaces and into a storage locker so that you leave an impression of how organized the place can be.


Make Moving Easier

Depending on how many items you have in your house, it can be a struggle moving everything from your old house to a new one, regardless of whether you use a moving truck or try to drive back and forth yourself. However, the hassle is lessened if you decide to keep certain items in a storage locker as you can pick them up as needed. This is also true if you end up moving into a smaller house. A downsized living space is one of the signs you need storage.
