With a chronic housing shortage, rising house prices and further restrictions on mortgage lending, fewer people are finding themselves in a position to upsize or move.
House prices are set to rise by 3%- 5% nationally in 2015 meaning that many homeowners will have to really consider the cost of upsizing their home this year.
While you may be fooled into thinking that a bigger house is the only way you will be able to fit comfortably into your home, a recent survey has revealed that 77% of us admitting to using ANY remaining space in our homes to hang on to things we don’t even use anymore.
While moving to a bigger house may not be an option for a number of years, it doesn’t mean that you have to be constrained by lack of space in your home.
More and more people are turning to self-storage as a practical way to open up huge amounts of space in their homes, creating a clean, open look.
Self-storage units give you the freedom to store all types of goods, from valuable items to sports equipment, general household furniture and appliances.
Simply by decluttering an area of your home (e.g. loft), you could potentially gain an extra bedroom, guest room, office, or room to let out, without having to throw away any of your possessions.
Spaces and Paces self-storage units provide you with an option to have:
· Your own private space
· Individually alarmed storage rooms
· 24/7 access
· Sole right to own its key
· Video surveillance inside and outside
If you do find yourself in a position to move house this year, then you could maximise your price by presenting your house in the best way possible for sale. A spacious, open, de-cluttered home will often sell for thousands of pounds more.
With such cluttered homes, it’s no wonder that us Brits don’t feel as though we have any room – put your things into a self-storage unit to reveal how much space you truly have!
