Use self storage to de-clutter your home when selling
The UK is in the middle of a housing squeeze with some of the smallest homes in Western Europe and a growing population. With more space and value for money becoming increasingly desirable for home buyers. Recent research has shown that over 20% of buyers wouldn’t make an offer on a property that was too cluttered and untidy.
This is why it’s important to maximise the space in your property and show any potential buyers the true potential of every room. In fact, not only can it help to clinch a sale it can actually increase the amount of money you get for your property! In some cases decluttering and removing unnecessary bulky items to maximise floor space pushed the sale price up by as much as 11%!
If you decide you want to make more room, you may be wondering where you are going to put your items. Some things you will declutter you may realise you don’t need them anymore and will recycle or throw them away. Of course, not all of your stuff is only fit for the skip or tip. There will be some things that you might want to store away safely for the long-term. If you don’t have a loft, cupboard or spare room that can be a tricky. Things that either hold a sentimental value or just might be worth something one day.
Consider self storage as an easy and affordable way to securely store your items, whilst still giving you access to your items when you need them. No matter how much you have to store self storage facilities should have rooms of various sizes which can hold as much or as little as you want and for as long or short as you want.
