Staging a Home?

Staging a home and self storageWhen you are ready to sell your house most of the time you will be told to “stage” the house.  What does this really mean? Well staging your house can mean a number of different things from removing big pieces of furniture to cleaning out the garage.  Both of these tasks can be stressful, but having a place to store everything could help relieve some of that stress.  That is where StorPlace Self Storage comes in to save the day.

If your realtor tells you that you need to take some of the bigger pieces of furniture out of your house to help stage it, well finding a place to put the furniture can be tough.  You can’t put it in the garage because that needs to be cleaned out too. This is one of the many reasons why there are storage units. There are many different sizes of storage units that can fit almost any need.  Storing can vary from just a few boxes to an entire house full of things.  If it is just a few items than maybe a smaller unit will do, such as a 5×5 or 5×10.  Or, let’s say that you needed to store the contents of an entire house.  There are bigger units available for that need as well, such as 10×25 or 10×30.  Also, there are a variety of storage sizes in-between the 5×5 and the 10×30 will accommodate most needs if it is a little bit of both furniture or extra clutter.

Reducing the clutter and removing big furniture can help make the house feel bigger.  This is a major selling point for potential buyers.  This is another reason that storage is a big need for sellers everywhere.  If you are in the Middle Tennessee area or even in Bowling Green KY, StorPlace Self Storage is the place for you to store your belongings where they can be safe and secured.
