4 Tips For Renting A Storage Unit When Selling Your Home

Posted on

When you start thinking about selling your home, your initial thoughts may not include renting a storage unit to help with the process. However, even if you have a decent-sized home with a bit of available storage space, you will still find it beneficial to rent a storage unit at a local facility.


Leaving all your decorations on display for listing photos and tours may be worth avoiding. While your family may love the decorations that are on display inside, especially the sentimental ones, you should try to make your home appeal to the largest percentage of potential buyers.

This means that putting away sentimental decorations and non-neutral ones is a smart decision. It may seem like your home has been stripped of its visual appeal, but this will come in handy with buyers because it will allow them to imagine their own decorations throughout the house. 


While you may have a cohesive furniture arrangement in your home, you may benefit from storing several pieces. For instance, you should not hesitate to store your most worn-down pieces because they could make it rather challenging to showcase a visually appealing room. You may also want to store furniture in bold colors that could stand out to some buyers in a negative way.

If you do not have enough furniture to use and make each room look well-furnished after putting some into storage, you should consider renting neutral pieces to fill in the gaps.


When you look at your kitchen, you may find that your family likes to leave a few small appliances on the countertops for quick and easy access. At the same time, you may find that the cabinets with glass doors can look a little cluttered with your kitchenware and collections on display.

To make the kitchen look more appealing to potential buyers, you will find that storing some of the kitchenware, collections, and small appliances can help tremendously. Making the kitchen look more spacious and inviting is an excellent goal worth trying to accomplish before listing.


If your garage and closets are at or near full capacity, you may want to remove some of the boxes and oversized items to make it easier to impress buyers with these spaces. For the garage and walk-in closets, you will benefit from making it easy for people to move around inside.

Renting a storage unit can help you with selling your home in many ways.
