Any business person knows that efficiency and organization are what set you apart from your competition. Portable storage containers are the perfect solution to help real estate agents increase productivity. In order to be successful in this industry, it takes more than smiles and good selling tactics. It requires well-organized documents,  clever marketing materials, and home decor accessories that can turn any home into a showplace. Unfortunately, most real estate offices do not have room for all of these items so real estate agents need a space to store their real estate materials. Portable storage containers are the perfect way for real estate agents to organize their materials in order to stay on top of their game.


Storing Signage and Marketing Materials

Between signs, banners, and brochures, there are loads of signage and materials needed to market every listing. On average, a real estate agent will use about 20 different signs to promote a listing. This includes those popular “For Sale,” “For Rent,” and “Open House” signs that you are accustomed to seeing. Apart from outdoor signs, realtors also use a number of marketing materials such as brochures, flyers, and catalogs. These items can quickly clutter a small real estate office so a portable storage container is the perfect place to neatly store and organized these materials.


Storing Important Documents

In most states, realtors are required to keep closed files on hand for several years. This means they cannot discard these documents as soon as the house closes. Rather, they must find a place to store all of these important (and bulky) documents. It would be difficult to fit all of these documents in a couple of file cabinets in the office but a portable storage container can provide ample space for this paperwork.


Decluttering a Home

Every realtor knows that a neat and organized home will sell faster. Portable storage containers are the perfect solution for those clients who need to do some serious decluttering. Perhaps your client isn’t ready to part with their beloved items, but they would probably be willing to store them out of the way in order to sell their home.


Add or Remove Furniture for Home Showings

Showing a home is all about giving potential buyers the chance to envision themselves living in the home. That can be difficult if the home is crammed with bulky or misplaced furniture. By removing what doesn’t belong and placing it in a portable storage unit, sellers can stage the home so that it appeals to prospective buyers. On the other hand, a home that is too bare will not feel cozy and inviting. Real estate agents who keep additional furniture on hand in a portable storage container can use some of this furniture to create a more alluring look that will attract buyers.


Storing Staging Accessories

There is a lot more that goes into staging a home than simply placing furniture in the right place. A well staged home has flower arrangements thoughtfully placed throughout the home, a dining table set with placemats and dishes, cozy blankets folded over the couch, and a few pieces of art hanging on the walls. A real estate agent who really knows how to stage a home will keep their own collection of staging accessories that can pulled out at a moment’s notice. A portable storage container is the perfect place to store all of these much needed accessories.
