The biggest factor of home staging is to de-clutter the home and make the decorations as neutral as possible. This process includes removing all personal artwork, photographs, books and collectibles from the rooms. The goal is to allow the potential buyers to envision their furniture and belongings in the room. It is not a good idea to “stuff” the personal items into a closet or put them in a corner in the basement. These are areas that the buyer will be looking at as well, so you don’t want them to be cluttered. Renting a self storage unit for a short period of time is a great way to stage a home for sale. The homeowner’s personal belongings are safe and secure in self storage while the home is up for sale, closets, basements and garages are free from clutter and the home just looks bigger. Once your home sells and you are ready to move, don’t forget to get the items in your self storage unit or just keep them in the storage unit until you decide on where to put them in the new home. ezStorage offers month-to-month rentals that are perfect for homeowners that are staging their homes.
If you decide to stage your home on your own, there are some very important items that need to be taken care of in order to show your home at its full potential:
1 Bedroom Apartment
2 Bedroom Apartment
2-3 Bedroom House
4+ Bedroom House
