Research suggests that staging a home helps it to sell 73% faster, on average. Home staging is important because it affects the way the property is perceived by potential buyers. Buyers will be turned off by a home that is cluttered, dark, dreary, and in need of repairs. Conversely, a well-staged home showcases the home’s bet features and draws buyers in. The object is to have buyers walk in and be able to visualize themselves in the home. It’s all about creating a space that is inviting and where buyers can see themselves living and entertaining. Home staging is a cost-effective marketing tool for sellers, but it does require some effort. Portable storage containers offer a smart solution for staging your home. They provide easy access to your belongings along with adequate storage as you move furniture in and out of your home to stage it. Here are just a few of the ways portable storage containers can help stage your home.


Decluttering Your Home

The first step in staging your home is to declutter it and remove any unwanted items. However, it can be overwhelming to find a place to store all of these items until you are ready for a yard sale or trip to Goodwill. That’s where a portable storage container can really help. These convenient containers provide onsite storage, making it easy for you to remove items from your home. You can store these items temporarily while you stage and organize your home.


Additional Storage

When you stage your home, you might want to try different furniture arrangements and you might need to remove excess furniture. A portable storage container is convenient because it provides ample storage for your furniture and belongings while your home is on the market. This makes your home look tidier and more spacious which is enticing to buyers.


Depersonalize Your Home

An important component of home staging is depersonalizing your home. You want buyers to envision themselves in the home and that can be difficult it your walls are adorned with personal photographs. Realtors and professional stagers recommend removing personal items from the home such as photographs, political posters, personal collections, toys, and decor suited to your specific taste such as taxidermy or nude art. You can safely store these items right on-site in a portable storage container.


Renovations and Repairs

Some people choose to do a few home improvement projects or renovations to help their home sell faster. A portable storage container is a perfect solution for storing your furniture and belongings during a renovation as well as tools, equipment, and supplies.
