If you’re selling your home this summer, then we’re willing to bet that you have a lot on your plate. You’re probably looking at other homes in the area and contacting sellers, and you might be looking for a moving company that can help you package and move all of your belongings. You’re probably showing your home to prospective buyers as well, and while it can be nice to keep everything in place until you’re ready to transition to a new home, depersonalizing your home can actually lead to a faster sale! In today’s post, we’ll cover a few ways to depersonalize your home as you attempt to sell it.
Come by Eagle Crossing Self Storage when you’ve determined everything that needs to go!
How to Depersonalize Your Home
Take Down Pictures and Artwork
Whether you live alone, with a partner, or have a family, taking down your decor is one of the first things you should do before you open the door to buyers. We know that you have great taste, but too much of your personal decor can make it difficult for buyers to imagine what their belongings would look like on the walls.
If you have fine art prints, original paintings, mixed-medium artwork, or any other decor that needs to be stored in a stable climate while you show your home, then bring it to our Windsor storage facility and ask about our climate-controlled storage units.
After you’ve taken down your artwork and personal pictures, you should remove most of the furniture from your home. While couches and chairs in the living room are normally fine, removing as many of your personal effects as you can will make your home look larger and more inviting.
Our storage units are available in a number of different sizes, so whether you have a sectional sofa and a large dining room table or just a few small furnishings, you’ll be able to find a self-storage unit that accommodates your needs.
Paint Your Walls
Have you painted accent walls or entire rooms in your home? If so, then you should consider going back over them with a neutral color in order to make your home more appealing to buyers. Moving into a home is hard work, and it’s even more daunting to think about taking on a DIY painting project!
Instead of moving the items in one room to another, get a jump start on moving day by packing the room up and bringing everything to Eagle Crossing Self Storage. You can store everything else in the unit at your convenience, and our month-to-month leases allow you to retrieve everything at your leisure after you’ve moved into your new home.
Take a Neutral Stance
As you’re going through each room in your home, take a moment to consider your personal effects. Do you have anything religious, controversial, or politically oriented on display? Whether it’s books on your shelf, religious symbols, or anything else that might deter buyers, it’s best to pack everything up and avoid making anyone uncomfortable. Just pack these items and bring them to your storage unit along with everything else!
