When people contact a broker about selling their home, selling their condo, or leasing a vacant apartment, the very first recommendation from the broker is often to hire a home stager or at least clear out a number of things from various rooms. Self-storage is the perfect, affordable solution for professional and DIY home stagers, with a variety of unit sizes to meet small and large storage needs and the ability to rent for as little or as long as it takes to show/sell the apartment, home, or condo.
“One of the reasons self-storage has become so popular is because it’s ideal for so many different uses, including home staging, when a temporary storage solution is needed,” said Stevey Heinrich, Operations Manager for Beyond Self Storage. “Self-storage also needs to be convenient and reassuring, especially when the sale of a home is involved, and that’s the experience we’re delivering to our customers,” added Heinrich.
Beyond Self Storage facilities feature a number of amenities that appeal to professional and DIY home-stagers, including a drive-thru loading area with complimentary carts & dollies, 100% climate control, state-of-the-art security with computerized access control, digital video recorded cameras and motion-detected lighting, a business center with conference table, workstations, printer/copier and free Wi-Fi, online rentals and a self-service kiosk, a complete line of moving & packing supplies, and professional on-site management.
Heinrich pointed out, however, that “the drive-thru loading area really makes a difference for professional home stagers because they want to be extra careful when handling someone else’s items, while the folks clearing out stuff on their own find it much easier to do when they can lift things directly from their car or truck onto a cart without having to worry about weather.”
So, if you’re planning to sell your home/condo or rent out some space, think about how much better it will show with clutter and other unnecessary items stored away and consider a self-storage unit to help you get it done!
