Using a Storage Unit When Buying or Selling a Home

ForSaleThere’s no doubt the housing market is gaining strength, and it’s interesting the role that storage units play in those transactions. From house staging to quick moves, people buying and selling homes often use storage units to help them out.

Someone looking to sell a home is often advised to stage it. The goal of home staging is to remove personal effects and clutter to make the home appear bigger and allow potential owners to envision themselves in it. Sellers often will rent a storage unit to store family photos, large libraries or bulky pieces of furniture that can make a home appear cramped before putting the house on the market.

If the staging does its job, that house will sell quickly. Amazingly, in very hot markets, homes have been known to sell in just hours! In these cases, sellers might not be ready to move in the 30 to 45 days most contracts allow. Maybe they’re building a home that isn’t ready yet. Or maybe the right job in that dream city hasn’t yet come along. In these cases, temporary housing is necessary. And temporary housing often doesn’t have the room for a houseful of belongings. Once again, storage units to the rescue! As this trend continues, the summer months are not only the busiest times for real estate agents and moving companies, but for storage unit companies, too.

Storage units are a great option for people who need to reduce clutter in the long-term, but they also are fantastic quick-fix solutions for people on the move.
