Selling Up or Moving On? We Can Help!

Moving house

Updated May 2019

The start of the summer is one of the most popular times of year for people to put their house or flat on the market. Lots of people are on the look-out for their next dream property before the start of the next school or university term.

Photos for the viewing schedule look better in the sunshine and gardens and window boxes are full of life, not to mention the good mood the sunny weather puts everyone in.

If you’re selling up this summer, it’s a great opportunity to have a clear out and give everything a fresh lick of paint. It’s a great way to make your home clean and clutter free so that viewers can imagine their own furniture, ornaments and colour schemes.

As well as having that all important clear out, there will undoubtedly be things that are special to you but might prevent viewers from seeing your home at its best.

First Impressions Count

We heard of one viewer that couldn’t get through the hallway without stepping on motorbike parts but that’s an extreme example! We’re thinking of the well-worn chair that’s seen better days or the coffee table you have to walk round to get from one room to the other.

It’s easy to stop noticing what’s immediately around us but when you’re trying to sell your home, you have to see it through your viewers’ eyes. Sometimes a clear-headed friend is just what you need to point out the things that could stop someone imagining their own favourite picture above the fireplace. First impressions count and it could be the difference between a quick sale at the price you want and being under pressure to accept an offer that’s not what you’re looking for.

Different Storage Options

We can help look after anything that might get in the way until you’ve got that all important sale. We’ll keep things for as long as you like until you’re ready to move into the next home of your dreams.

We have units of all sizes from the size of a locker upwards and everything is safe and secure with the most up-to-date digital security. The team here at Edinburgh Self Storage knows that selling up and moving house can be one of the most stressful things you do. We’ll do everything we can to help you work out exactly what you need and make everything simple and straightforward.
