I was reminded once again today how valuable storage units can be when you are selling.
The townhouse I was in did not have a basement. Everything was in its own utility closet. The furnace had one, the breaker box had one. There was a storage space built at the end of the garage and under the stairs.
The seller had a shelf unit in her kitchen for storing extra things. Not a good thing for selling but ok for living. Then of course there were the over the door hooks that helped and the row of hooks for coats as you came in the door.
There were some furniture pieces that needed to be removed to open up some of the rooms. With no basement how could this seller cooperate? Well it came to a choice between a friends unheated garage and renting a heated storage unit. There was no guarantee the friends garage would hold it all.
I'm voting for the heated storage unit. That rack in the kitchen just has to go. It is screaming about the lack of cupboard space and really for the size of home they are not bad. Over the door hooks are easy but extra chairs, bookcases and hope chests are not.
For about $100/mos the problem is solved.
