For any of you Game of Thrones fans, you know the term "Winter is Coming!" If you're not a fan, you know its COLD outside, and about to get colder! HOWEVER, when it comes to Home Sales,
Say YES To The PODS
This past Spring, we sold one of my friends homes in Normal. They were looking to build their new dream home, but like most of us, didn't want to have the worry of two mortgages. Soooo, they thought they'd list and see how things went. Well, we sold their home in 2 days! We'd like to take all the credit, but the home was amazing!
Now, we knew it would sell, so there was a plan for renting til the new home could be built. While renting they'd need a place for a large portion of their belongings, and that's where PODS comes in. I helped them pack the pod in May with Furniture, boxes, plastic bins, and more and we closed the door. A quick call to PODS and it was picked up and taken for storage. Fast forward to today, November 23, and that POD just got dropped off in their new driveway.
I think there was a little bit of concern of what could happen to a large portion of their stuff over a summer and two trips around town. The answer was "absolutely nothing"! Everything was just as it was when we sealed it up months ago. No major shifting, leakage, etc.
So my buddy paid a little over $100 per month for storage fees. Pick up and dropoff was a breeze. Call 'em up, tell them when and where to drop. DONE.
There are definitely other storage options out there, but it's not much simpler than loading up a storage unit in your driveway and unloading once on the other side of town! We definitely recommend PODS for Storage during a transitional move, as well as for "Pre-Packing" to prepare your home to be shown in its best light.
I believe in utilizing a consultative approach to enable my clients to make informed financial decisions when it comes to their housing needs. ....
