If you’re getting ready to list your home for sale in Lake City or any of the surrounding communities, you probably already know how important staging is.
Staging your home for sale can help you take better pictures, get more showings and impress more prospective buyers. This can mean selling your home quickly—and for the highest price possible.
Pack Away Your Personal Belongings
Removing personal items from view is often the first step in staging a home. Then, you’ll probably continue by decluttering; removing piles of stuff from your closets, furniture and shelves. Of course, that can leave you with a stack of boxes—not the most attractive décor.
It may seem like a good idea to store the belongings you’ve packed in a garage, basement, closet or unused room. However, this will prevent you from staging that area to make it look its best. Even a basement or garage can benefit from a bit of care in making it look roomy, versatile and useful.
If potential buyers see your closets and storage areas filled with boxes, it will be hard for them to see the potential for how they might use the space. This is doubly true for a bedroom or other spare room.
Making a small investment of time and energy by moving your packed items to an off-site storage space can really pay off—in a quicker sale and possibly a higher price. Get a unit at a local storage place. You could also order a storage container, which you can then have shipped to your new home. If you opt for the container, be sure its location doesn’t make your yard or driveway look small or awkward.
