Getting Ready to Sell Your Home: Packing, Staging, Storage, and More!

Are you considering selling your home? You don’t have to feel overwhelmed by the process; we’ve got all the information and resources you need to make sure that when it comes time for showings, your house is showing its best self! With proper preparation and the right mindset, you can make the process of selling your home smoother and more successful. Let’s go over some key tips and tricks to help you get ready to sell your home.

Declutter and Organize

One of the most important things you can do to get your home ready to sell is to declutter and organize. This involves getting rid of any unwanted or unnecessary items, organizing what’s left, and making sure everything is in its proper place. This will help your home feel more spacious and inviting to potential buyers. To make it easier to dispose of your unwanted items, consider requesting a dumpster from a local junk removal service, or contact a thrift store in town to request at-home pickup for larger items that are in good condition and can be donated. This will also help when you go to move, bringing along only the items you want to move into your new place.

Make Repairs and Renovations

When it comes to selling a home, the little details matter. Take the time to make any necessary repairs and renovations, such as fixing leaky faucets or repainting chipped walls. Not only could taking up these relatively easy maintenance tasks translate to greater appeal of the property while bringing out its full profile, but it could also mean an increase in value of your home.

Stage Your Home

Staging your home means setting it up to look its best for potential buyers. This involves arranging furniture in a way that makes sense for the space. That could be as simple as making sure there’s ample seating with walkways in between to make rooms look open, spacious, and inviting. Throw pillows, plants, and small pieces of artwork can add interesting pops of color, and scents from candles or reed diffusers are perfect to create ambiance. Make sure everything is clean, vacuumed, and tidy in order to give off the best first impression to potential buyers.

Packing Your Items

After your home has been successfully sold, it’s time to pack up all of your belongings. Packing can be one of the most daunting tasks in a move, but no need to stress! Mad City Moving offers both full and partial service packing. Whether you just need a few boxes and packing supplies or need help packing your entire household, we’ve got you covered. We are happy to provide packing services, along with moving or loading services.

Temporary Storage

Oftentimes a move does not all happen within a single day and you need a place to store your items between houses. When you move with Mad City Moving, we offer a few temporary storage solutions to fit your needs. Your items can be safely stored on our moving trucks overnight for shorter-term moves, or we can place your items in one of our storage facilities if there is a lapse in your closing dates.

Selling a home can be an overwhelming experience. But, by decluttering, making repairs, staging your home, packing your items, and utilizing temporary storage solutions, you can turn a potentially challenging process into an organized one. Plus, you don’t have to go through this alone! Mad City Moving is ready to help make the selling and moving process a breeze. Contact us today to start planning your move.
