Self-Storage Makes Staging Your Home Easy

Self Storage for your Open House .

To make your home seem more attractive than all the rest, consider, well, making it seem more attractive than all the rest. The experts call this “staging.” You can hire a professional to do the job for you, or you can do much of the work yourself.

The overall goals of home staging are to:
1. Show off the square footage of the property. Make rooms appear larger by getting rid of excess furniture and clutter. Keep it simple and clean. You also want to clean out closets, cabinets, counter tops, basements, garages and other storage areas. Keep only the necessities and store the rest offsite. Show buyers how much space they’ll have.

2. Create a sense of flow throughout the house. Draw the eye to any special features such as a fireplace or bay window by creating focal points or “vignettes” with small groupings of furniture and accessories.

3. Inspire potential buyers to see themselves in the space. You want the house to look like it’s ready to be lived in, but not like someone already lives there. Remove photos of your family and friends as well as any personal decorative items.

Think of it this way: You’re not selling them your home. You’re selling them their home.

The trouble with removing items from your home is that you will need a place to store them in the meantime. Since no one can predict how long your home will be on the market, you may need access to some of those things while they are in storage. If furniture pieces are included in the items that you are storing, you may need more space than relatives or friends have to offer.

Self-storage can solve both these problems. You can rent the amount of space you need to comfortably fit your possessions and have access to them whenever you need to, without inconveniencing your friends and family.
