How a Dumpster Rental Can Help You Sell Your Bel Air MD Home
Selling a house can be a stressful process. Even if the property is in one of Bel Air’s most sought-after neighborhoods, if it looks like a hoarder lives there, it can be a tough sell. Spring and summer are prime times to sell your home. Whether you’re downsizing, moving to a larger home, or selling the home of an older loved one after they’ve passed, a dumpster rental can make selling your current home easier.
How? Let’s take a look.
Removing Clutter Makes Your Home Look More Spacious
After location, the size of a house for sale is the second most important thing for most buyers. If it’s a young family with children, they want room for their family to grow. If the prospective buyer has kids who are old enough that they now want their own space, they’re looking for extra bedrooms and bonus rooms.
While your home may have the number of rooms they’re looking for if they’re filled to the max with furniture, clothing, and, dare we say it, junk, it may look cramped. Few buyers bring a measuring tape with them to see how large the rooms are.
Sort through your belongings. It can be helpful to do this room by room. Create piles or staging areas for Keep, Donate/Sell, and Toss.
- Keep items you will need to comfortably live in your home until you sell it, or will use it in your new home.
- Donate or sell items you don’t need or use anymore, as long as they’re in good condition.
- Toss items that are broken, ugly, or smell like pets or cigarette smoke, into the dumpster. The same goes for piles of magazines. If you’ve lived in your home for more than 10 years, you’ve accumulated a lot of stuff. Don’t keep stuff that’s still in boxes from your last move. Purge it.
If there are belongings you plan to move to your next place but they take up a lot of room, consider renting a storage unit until you sell the house. Talk with your realtor about how to make some of these decisions.

You May Be Able to Sell Your Home Faster, for Top Dollar
If you remove extra furniture to make your home look more spacious, clear out the closets to make them look bigger, and clear out the garage, you may be able to sell your home faster, and for top dollar. Most buyers are looking for room to expand in.
Make it easy for them to imagine their stuff and their family in your home by removing clutter and staging the rooms.
You Have Fewer Things to Move
If you do a good job decluttering your home before you sell it, you’ll have fewer things to move. This means it won’t take as long to pack or unpack. And if you hire a moving company, you’ll pay less than you would if you kept all that junk.
