HAVE A PROPERTY THAT IS PROVING DIFFICULT TO LEASE OR SELL BECAUSE OF PRESENTATION ISSUES?
Clutter can be a real barrier to new tenant or buyer appeal. Maximise your client’s chance of a swift leasing or sales result by offering temporary storage to address presentation issues – another service City Move suggests you have in your ‘removalist solutions’ arsenal. Makala Ffrench Castelli, Marketing and Corporate Affairs Manager at National Storage, offers her advice on the topic of decluttering: “Many real estate agents and property managers recommend decluttering prior to marketing a property for sale or rent to show the property in its best light. Removing excess furniture and packing away personal items creates space and allows the focus to shift to the property, rather than the current tenant’s personality.” Surprisingly cost-effective, customers are often surprised at how little room is required for their belongings in storage; what would normally clutter a double garage can fit into a quarter of the space when properly stored.
With over 80 National Storage centres offering tailored storage solutions and services to over 30,000 customers across Australia, Makala recommends searching for local storage partners who offer secure premises and professional management. The National Storage website is also a great resource, with online tools and tips for packing, storing and taking the stress out of moving for your clients.
