Show Off Your Storage Space


Show Off Your Storage Space

Storage space is an often overlooked, but highly valuable feature in a property. Whether your home has an abundance of storage space, unique storage options, or falls somewhere in between, be sure to show off the storage you’ve got when potential buyers are touring your home.

How can you best showcase your storage spaces to help sell your home?

Clean out closets and storage cupboards.
Over time, you’ve accumulated a lot of stuff, much of which has probably been tucked away inside a closet or drawer, or set on a shelf and forgotten about. This is fine for everyday life, but when you are planning to show your home to buyers, you should always clean out as much of your personal belongings from these storage spaces, leaving them looking neat and organized.

Buyers will open the closets, drawers, and cupboards you point out, and often times, the ones you don’t, too. So be sure not to leave anything inside that you wouldn’t want them to see and clear out any unnecessary junk, so that they can assess the space’s true storage potential.

Add built-in shelving and amplify organization.
When you bought your home, your closets and other storage spaces may have had nothing more than a functional door and perhaps a bar or two for hanging clothes. But, organized sellers and buyers are looking for storage spaces that come with built-in shelves, cubbies, and other unique organizational features.

You can easily add shelves and other storage enhancements to these spaces yourself for just a little cash. For unique, modern storage ideas, consider browsing through stores like IKEA or The Container Store, or even clicking through Pinterest boards to find the latest trends. Buyers will appreciate your initiative and attention to detail when staging your home, even in these hidden away spaces.

Convert unused spaces into storage options.
By making just a few quick changes to unused spaces like linen closets, alcoves, and awkward corners, you can easily give your home even more storage options, which will surely impress buyers. Though this might take some thinking outside of the box, you can show buyers that your home not only has the space for their family, but for their things too!

Showcasing your home’s storage options is just another way that you can help buyers envision themselves living in your home. The presence of ready-to-go storage spaces can encourage buyers that the transition to a new home can be easier than they think, and may be the extra push they need to make an offer.

Stress is one of the largest concerns when selling a home. Staging, managing finances and documents, and simultaneously juggling the rest of your life can be completely draining. However, one thing is certain about selling your home: it’s a lot easier when you have a solid real estate agent to handle it. Remember, No-One Works Harder to Sell your Home more than Joe!
