How a storage unit will help sell your house

Etobicoke storage is great help when preparing your house to sell.  At Self Stor we have storage facilities throughout the GTA serving Etobicoke, Mississauga, Milton, North York, Scarborough, Markham and Richmond Hill.

When it comes to selling real estate in Toronto, there is no shortage of competition. Finding a real estate agent, staging, renovations and open houses are all part of the selling process.  A key element of being able to sell your home is getting a clean, secure and affordable storage unit.

Here is how a storage unit will play a key role in selling your home:


Store toys, kitchen items, nic nacs and other belongings you don’t need today but would like to keep for you new home. When prospective buyers walk through your home, they need to see enough negative space for envisioning their own personal touches in your condo or house.

When preparing for viewings and open houses, think like a prospective buyer. What items around your home are necessary to display functionality and comfort? What can you place in storage?

Keep valuables secure

When selling your home, prospective buyers, real estate professionals and contractors will be walking through your home – mostly in your absence. Keep your jewelry, sensitive documents, priceless collectibles and other valuables safe in a secure and affordable storage unit.

No matter how much traffic goes through your home, your valuables are safe and out of harm’s way in a storage unit.

Store furniture to make way for staging

Staging with furniture and accessories that will help your home be more appealing to prospective buyers. Stage your home and  increase the chances of a home selling quickly. Use staging to transform your home into a design concept that is on trend to what buyers are looking for.

While your home is staged, store your furniture, wall art, curtains and other decor items in a clean, secure and affordable storage unit. At Self Stor you can rent a storage unit for a long or as little as you need it.

Store landscaping equipment and tools to clear out your garage

When prepping your home to sell, do not overlook garage and outside storage spaces! Clear your garage and shed of clutter so that buyers can see how spacious and functional they are. Store whatever items aren’t needed in the present season like your snow blower or lawn mower, sporting equipment, large tools and toys to create a clear and clean space.

Get a clean, secure storage unit that suits your sizing and timing needs at Self Stor.

Store Furnitures and valuables during renovations

You may want to give your home a bit of a facelift to attract the right buyer. During renovations contractors will move material throughout your home and use power tools creating dust and debris. Lots of space is needed to create room for renovations to be done.

Keep your furniture, nic nacs, electronics, area rugs and clothing from dust, debris and potential damage by keeping them safe and secure in a storage unit.

Our units are always clean, secure, pest-free and available for as long or as little as you need them.

Please get in touch with us to find the right storage unit for you, we are happy to help you sell your home!
