Where to Put the Clutter Before Listing Your Home for Sale

Real Estate Agent with Fred Sed Group ~ Your Premier Southern California Realtors CA BRE #01423187


If you’re planning on selling your home it doesn’t matter if you’ve been living there for one year, or 50 years, your house is going to have a fair amount of “clutter” that should be kept out of sight of home buyers.

Eliminating the clutter in your home will showcase the space that your house has to offer and get more buyers to envision themselves living there.

The big question though is where can you put the clutter? 

In this post, we will provide you with an easy solution that you can use for dealing with clutter before you list your home for sale.

Invest in A POD Rental For 30 Days

Over the last 10 years, POD rentals have become the new way to ship and store items in the United States. 

A POD rental is essentially a large box, or portable storage unit, that a storage company will deliver to your home for you to fill it up. Once the POD is filled, they will pick the POD up and take it to their storage facility where they will store it for you.

What Do POD Rentals Cost?

One of our clients recently invested in a very large POD for 30 days. It cost them $400 and $125 to store it.

What was fantastic about our client’s investment in the POD rental is that they were able to store a large number of items from heir home and were able to sell their house quickly.

Are POD Rentals Worth the Investment?

You may be asking if POD rentals are worth the investment? The answer to this question is it depends.

If you feel that you don’t have anywhere to realistically put the clutter in your home other than storing it, then investing in a POD rental and paying $500 to $700 for 30 to 60 days makes it well worth the investment.

Homes that are decluttered, cleaned up, and are ready for sale always show better than homes that are not decluttered. 

In our experience, we’ve been able to sell homes for up to $15,000 more once those houses have been decluttered, compared to homes that were not decluttered. 

Renting a POD certainly helps with decluttering because it makes it possible for the homeowner to remove all of the clutter from their home quickly and easily without having to take multiple trips to a storage facility themselves, sell items on Facebook, or have a very large yard sale.

To learn more about POD Rentals near you, just Google “POD Rental”, followed by your city name, and you should be able to find a list of companies in your area.
