One of the big buzzwords in the real estate industry right now is ‘staging.’ Staging refers to the art of preparing your home so that it appeals to the highest number of potential buyers possible. This practice can involve everything from how the furniture is laid out to which decorations you leave on the wall. The goal is to present your home in such a way that potential buyers can envision themselves living there. One big step to the staging process, for most sellers, is decluttering—which in turn means exploring storage options.
Staging and Storage: Building a Strategy to Sell Your House
If you’ve already bought a house and started the process of moving out of your old residence, then you don’t need to worry about storage. You already have another place where you can start moving your furniture and belongings. You can vacate your old home completely, or leave the items that your real estate agent recommends for optimal staging.
If you are like most sellers though, you are waiting to buy a new home until you’ve sold your old one. Usually, that means storage options for belongings are limited. Certainly, any move should be accompanied by shedding things you don’t need anymore. Even after getting rid of unwanted stuff, though, you might still have more clutter than is optimal for smart staging. Searching for affordable storage is your next step.
Self storage is a terrific option for someone who is trying to sell their home. Instead of leaving your house a mess of packed boxes, you can get those boxes out of the way. Instead of leaving the living room crammed with too many furniture pieces, you can take out a few chairs to create the illusion of extra floor space. Instead of leaving all your clothes hanging in the closet, you can start moving that stuff out so that prospective buyers can better envision living in your house.
