How do you sell your home faster this spring? According to experts, the answer is a combination of cleaning, decluttering and home staging. They also agree that renting or leasing one or more mobile storage containers is what will help you achieve all of this. Portable storage will allow you to remove the clutter, depersonalize your space, do a deep cleaning of each room and stage your home so prospective buyers can easily envision themselves living there.
The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) says that keeping a home that’s on the market clean and clutter-free “can make a difference in how a buyer values it and the price a seller might get for it.”
In fact, more than “95 percent of ‘buyers’ agents’ say that home staging has at least some effect on the buyers’ view of the home,” and more than “81 percent of buyers find it easier to visualize the property as their future home when it’s staged.”
