One of the main components of a home staging project is to de-clutter and re-organize the home. Realtors and staging companies rent self-storage units for their client’s excess items during home staging. This is a great household storage solution to temporarily remove additional items from the home and kick-start a de-cluttering process before a move. The homeowner’s personal belongings are safe and secure in self-storage while the home is up for sale, and the home’s closets, basements and garages are free of clutter. With excess items removed, the home also just looks bigger. Once your home sells and you are ready to move, you can keep your items in the self-storage unit until you decide where to put them in the new home.
The purpose of staging a home is to allow potential buyers to see their own belongings in the home. So, it is important to make the home’s décor and color as neutral as possible. In a home staging project, the homeowner must look at all aspects of the home, inside and out, to make a great first impression on a buyer. Indoor and outdoor home staging is vital during the busy selling months and even more important during the slower winter selling months.
