How Storage Can Help You Sell Your Home Faster

In a recent blog post we talked about organizing and packing your belongings for storage, so it’s natural that this week we talk about how storage can help you sell your home faster.

According to this article on, 77% of buyers agents said home staging makes it easier for buyers to see themselves in the home.  Additionally, according to the Real Estate Staging Association, staging your home can help you sell your home 73% faster than if you did not.  Pretty compelling, right?

In order to stage your home, you most likely will need to do some major decluttering and quite possibly you’ll need to remove a lot of your own furniture and belongings from your home.  This is when a storage unit can come to rescue. You have a couple of different options for storing your belongings:

  1. Self Storage Unit is a space where you load and unload your belongings on your own.  This would be a good option for someone who is able to have their home staged using their own furniture and simply needs to do some decluttering and depersonalization.
  2. Full-Service Storage Unit is when the storage company comes to your home, packs up your belongings for you and moves them into and out of your storage space.   If you are staging your home with all new furniture this is the best option for you since you’ll need large, heavy and bulky items moved out.

Stay tuned for a future post containing information on different ways you can go about staging your home.
