I've done this in the past, and paying for a small storage unit for a few weeks is well worth the cost. The home we sold on the East Coast was much too "bare" for a family of four, but we removed most of the furniture and staged what was left to make the space look larger and easy to clean. We sold out house in just three weeks in a very competitive market, and the agents who showed our home always remarked on how our home stood out because it featured only the basics, with no personal items in sight.

My first customer installed a bromm bay window trellis in her kitchen. It makes it easy for her to keep the kitchen looking fresh and alive, but she also uses it to hang and dry out the herbs she grows.
