Selling Your Home Before the End of the Year

2020 has been an interesting year for everyone, with many changes in employment, living situations, and more. If you’re thinking about selling your home before the end of the year and moving to a new place, then a self-storage unit could be very beneficial as you transition from one place to another. At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, we can help you find the ideal storage space, whether it’s a small unit where you keep a few boxes and tubs, or a larger space where you store furniture and appliances.

Start Planning Now

With only about three months left in the year, now is the time to start planning how and when you’d like to sell your home. Will you list it privately and sell it on your own, or will you employ a real estate agent to help you market the property and attract the perfect buyer? It’s definitely possible to prepare, list, and sell a home in three months, but it will take some planning and organization on your part.

Getting the House Ready to Sell

A big part of getting your house ready to sell is by cleaning it from top to bottom. Your real estate agent might want to stage the home with newer furniture and decor, but before you can do that, you’ll need to move your current furniture and decor out and clean each room. You can hire a cleaning company to tackle all of the tough spots, such as the carpets and the drapes, while you and your family take care of moving things into storage for a few months.

Staging also often requires moving things out of closets and cupboards so that potential buyers can see how much storage space the house has to offer. As you pack up your belongings from each closet and cabinet, you can move these boxes or tubs into storage where they’ll be safe and sound until you’re ready to take them to your new house.

Handling Your Move

Once your current house is ready to sell, you can focus on how you’ll handle your move to your new place. You might need to do some renovations to your new home before you can move everything in, which can mean that furniture, appliances, and other belongings need to stay in storage while you make the necessary updates.

If there’s a period of time between when you move out of your current home and when you can move into your new residence, our team can make sure your items remain secure for as long as you need. We offer monthly leases on every unit, so you can rent for the time you need.
