Self Storage Tips When Selling Your House

Selling your property? De-clutter and stage wisely! First impressions count. Professional stagers will often remove 50% of a home’s contents to make it feel more spacious and immaculate. De-cluttering helps make rooms appear larger and is critical to a successful sale.  Sure, your home has that personalized, lived-in look, right?! Well, that’s exactly what buyers don’t want to see. They ‘ll want to feel comfortable and be able to imagine themselves living there.

Almost every home shows better with less furniture. Place large furniture and items that are rarely used in a storage unit so a potential buyer can see the actual space and size of your home. Think of this process as a head start on the packing and removal you will eventually need to do!

Leave just enough furniture in each room to showcase the room’s purpose. Make sure potential buyers can determine what each room can be used for. Here are a few, helpful self storage tips to consider when staging your home.

  •  De-personalise –  I’m not saying to throw away your child’s drawings or family photos. This is a perfect time to utilize self-storage to keep all your personal items conveniently packed away until your home sells.
  • Stay Motivated – buy some boxes and do one room at a time. Create a plan and set a time limit for packing so you stay on task. Gathering personal items can certainly be tempting to flip through!
  • Neutralise – non-neutral items are those that fit a particular taste or style. Your home décor should be less about showing off your unique (but impeccable!) style and more about maximising the amount you can get for your house.

Simplify the renovation process by using self storage. Are you a business? Store extra stock offsite and save loads of money!
