3 Benefits of Renting a Storage Unit When Selling a House, Stevens Creek, Nebraska

Moving involves several steps. Whether you’re just listing your house on the market or getting ready to hand over the keys, renting a storage unit can help make matters run more smoothly. The guide below explains how.

Ways a Storage Unit Can Make Life Easier While Moving

1. Improves Staging

When buyers come to view your house, they are looking for how their lives will fit into the space. As a result, most real estate agents suggest removing personal items—such as framed photographs or trophies—to make it less “yours” and more potentially “theirs.” Furthermore, if you have outgrown the square footage of the house—with too many coats stuffed into closets or bedrooms cramped by furniture—they might perceive it as being too small, even if they don’t have as many items. Putting unnecessary belongings in a storage unit will help support the idea of space, which can help you sell quicker.

2. Start Packing Early

Building boxes and bubble-wrapping items can take a surprisingly long time, so it’s best to spread it out across weeks if you can. During the process, you might also uncover items you no longer use—and this gives you more opportunity to gift, sell, or donate them.

3. Keep Your Belongings Safe

Storage units also provide peace of mind while you’re showing your home to strangers. Use the space to keep any fragile, valuable, and sentimental belongings, in the event that they become lost, damaged, or stolen during open houses.
