From packing the memories away to finding the next home, selling your house is a big step. How do you prepare to sell your home? West Creek Self Storage knows how a little extra space from a storage rental can make the process so much easier. We also want to walk you through a few do-it-yourself projects to get your listing the recognition you want.
- Wash your curtains, shampoo the carpet, shine the hardwoods, etc.
- Get behind hard to reach areas, like the fridge or toilet.
- Open windows a few hours before guests arrive as long as the weather cooperates.
- Moving furniture around may be the fresh vibe you need but if there are too many items storage is the answer.
Set a scene
A home is meant to be shared with friends and family. One way you can help buyers see the entertaining value in your space is by setting the scene for them. Put out plate settings as if you were about to host this week’s dinner party. Go the extra step and have a card game going on the coffee table.
Storing is important if you want to show your guests how large your space is. Many professional stagers will suggest emptying your closets about 50%. Moving sweaters, dress clothes, or anything you do not need regularly, will show how beneficial your in-home storage is. Another place buyers will look are your cabinets. Make sure all your plates and cups are in order. If the mug cabinet is overflowing, keep the best mugs and store the rest.
Moving does not have to cost a fortune or be stressful. Our storage rental in Ocean County NJ gives you space at home so your house sells quickly and you can start packing for the new house sooner. Let us help you get moving today!
