If you’re planning on selling your house, whether you use a realtor or not, you should consider staging your home. Staging is the act of making your home look as appealing as possible to potential buyers so that it can be sold. The more comfortable and stylish your home looks when it’s staged, the faster it’ll sell. In order to properly stage your home, you should rent or buy a portable storage container. These containers play a large role in home stagings. Here’s how:
Clutter has a new home
The more furniture and stuff you have in your home, the smaller it’ll look. With a portable storage container, all the clutter that is making your big home look tiny now has somewhere to go. Plus, the decluttering process will help you get rid of things you don’t need. Another great bonus of a portable storage container is that you can fill it at your own pace so you can tackle one room at a time.
Create a blank canvas
Someone is more likely to want to buy your home if they can picture their own stuff in it. By moving your items to a portable storage container you are creating a blank canvas for the people viewing your home. The goal with home staging is to remove some of the furniture but not all of it. Don’t go nuts and leave entire rooms empty. Instead, store items that are taking up a lot of space. For instance, if you have two dressers in your bedroom, put one in the portable storage container to open up the room.
Move out faster
After you’ve found a buyer for your home, you can promise them a quick move-in date. The majority of your stuff is already in your portable storage container, which can then be transported to your new house. The items that aren’t in the portable container can go in a moving truck or you can simply get another container. You already know how effective portable storage containers can be, so why not eliminate the need for a moving truck and have the containers brought to your new house? They’re portable for a reason.
Portable storage containers give your extra belongings a place to go while you’re showing your home. They allow for a faster move-in date and help you create a blank canvas so potential buyers can picture their own furniture in the home, making them want to buy it.
