Why You Should Rent Self Storage When You’re Selling

Moving means stress. In fact, it’s the most stress you might face in your entire life. Think about what comes with selling your home: you have to find a company to work with – Doorsteps is a great choice! – you have to decide on a selling price, and you have to continually clean and prepare your home for potential buyers. It’s a lot to consider, but self-storage can help.


What?!? How can self-storage help you prepare to sell your home? There are actually a number of ways working with a self-storage unit can help lower your stress level and help you prepare to sell your home at the same time.


?     The perfect place for packing! No likes to pack and, honestly, it’s one of the most stressful parts of any move. Packing up all of your belongings is extremely time-consuming and a lot of work. If you rent a storage unit, you can pack much more slowly. Take a day, pack up part of a room and then unload the boxes at your storage unit! There it will sit until you’re ready to move to your new home, no matter how long that might take.

?     Your extra furniture. In order to make your home the most appealing you possibly can, it’s a smart idea to get rid of some of your furniture. Some people even opt to remove all of their furniture and rent beautiful, new furniture. Just place all of your old furniture in your storage unit and it will sit there until it’s time to unpack for the new home.

?     Staging! Many studies indicate staging your home can help get it off the market faster, and with self-storage, that becomes infinitely more possible. Because you can move items that don’t fit with the theme of each room into storage, you can rearrange your furniture and belongings to reflect the purpose of each room, and that could mean a better selling price and less time on the market.
