Trying To Sell Your House While Packing Up To Move? Steps You Can Take

by Susan Beck

When you have already purchased a new home and are getting ready to move into it, the process can be a challenge. However, when you have done so and have yet to sell your current house, the process can seem downright impossible. Trying to sort, pack, and organize everything while trying to keep your house looking clean and beautiful can be tricky. Get to know some of the steps you can take to make this process easier. Then, you can strike the right balance between getting ready to move and successfully selling your home.

Put Your Garage to Use

As you have potential buyers coming in to take a look at your home through appointments with a realtor or open house events, you will want to have your space as clear of clutter as much as possible. However, when you are packing up boxes, it can be hard to keep everything clutter-free. One of the ways that you can keep the main living areas of your home free of clutter is to use your garage as storage. Most potential home buyers only want to see the general size of the garage and whether or not it comes with built-in shelving or a utility sink. They are not looking to explore the garage the way they would the bedrooms and living spaces.

Because of this, your garage is an ideal place to put boxes once you have packed them. Your possessions will still be safe but will also be out of the way, making your home's interior look homey and inviting to visitors.

Consider Renting a Storage Unit

If you are a family that has a lot of stuff hidden away in large closets, the basement or the attic (or just scattered elsewhere around your house), your garage may not be the ideal place to put items that you plan to take to your new home with you. Instead, you could use your garage as a sorting area in which you divide items into boxes to keep, boxes to give away, and boxes to throw away.

The items that you choose to keep can then be moved to self-storage units that you rent temporarily. This will help to get clutter out of closets and other spaces that potential homebuyers will want to see, give you a place to sort and organize items that is out of the way, and then give you a safe space away from your home to store the things you will be taking with you in the move.

Knowing the steps you can take when you are trying to stage your current house and pack up to move, you can be sure you are doing everything you can to make your move go smoothly as well as get your house sold as soon as possible.
