Home staging is preparing a property for sale or rent by making it look more attractive and appealing to potential buyers or tenants. Home staging can help increase the property’s value and reduce the time it takes to sell or rent it. A property agent will tell you that if a property can create a positive impression on the viewers, it is more likely to sell quickly and for a higher price.

One of the challenges you need to overcome when home staging is dealing with the clutter and excess belongings that may be present on the property. Clutter can make the space look smaller, crowded, messy, and less inviting. It can also distract the viewers from the features and benefits of the property and make them wonder about the lifestyle and habits of the current owners or occupants.

This is where self storage can help you with home staging. Self storage is a service that will allow you to rent a secure and convenient space to store your belongings for the short or long term.

What are the Benefits of Staging Your Home?

  • It can help you sell your home faster and for more money
  • It can highlight your home’s best features and minimise its flaws
  • It can create a positive first impression and connect emotionally with buyers
  • It can make your home look more spacious, clean, and cozy

There are different ways to stage your home. Your realtor may suggest that you prepare your home for virtual staging as there may be out-of-town buyers who can then view it online. Decluttering, cleaning, painting, repairing, and decorating can all be done yourself and will help show your home in the best possible way.

Self Storage and Home Staging

Self storage can help with home staging when you need to sell your home. It will help you obtain the best possible price for your home.

  • Self storage will free up space.

    By moving some of the furniture, appliances, clothes, books, toys, and other items to a self storage unit, your property will immediately look more spacious, airy, and bright. This can help showcase the layout, functionality, and potential of the space, and make it easier for the viewers to imagine themselves living there.

  • Hiring a self storage unit will assist you to declutter.

    By removing some of the personal items, such as photos, collections, souvenirs, and documents, to a self storage unit, the property can look more neutral, tidy, and organised. This can help create a sense of calmness and simplicity and make it easier for the viewers to focus on the positive aspects of the property.

  • Home staging by styling, with self storage.

    By storing some of your outdated, mismatched, or worn-out items in a self storage unit, your home will look more modern, stylish, and appealing. This can help enhance the aesthetic and mood of the space and make it easier for the viewers to appreciate the design and quality of the property.

  • Flexibility when preparing your property for sale or rent.

    By having access to a self storage unit, you as the property owner or occupant can have more flexibility and convenience in preparing your property for sale or rent. You can move your belongings in and out of the unit as needed, without having to worry about finding a new place to store them or disposing of them prematurely. You can also use the unit to store some of the items that you may need after you move out of the property, such as seasonal clothes, holiday decorations, or sentimental items.

Self storage can be a valuable tool to assist in your home staging. It will help create a more attractive and desirable property that can attract more buyers or tenants to enable you to sell or rent it out faster and at a higher price.

Self storage can also provide peace of mind and security for you as a property owner or occupant, as you can rest assured that your belongings are safe while they are in storage. They will be easily accessible when you move into your new property.

Here are Some DIY Tips for Home Staging
