Losing a loved one is something that none of us want to go through but unfortunately is something that we will all have to face at some point in our lives. We all have different ways of dealing with bereavement but however you deal with it, you need to make sure you create time and space to allow yourself to go through this process. The problem is this in itself can be difficult as there are often things that need to be dealt with at this time too. You will need to sort out possessions, retrieve important documents and decide how to deal with any property they had as well as making funeral arrangements and notifying relatives.

It’s essential that you prioritise which things to deal with first and also minimise the amount of things that you have to deal with immediately.

Clearing a property

Often, when there is property involved, there is pressure to sell as soon as possible in order that the estate can be finalised. Doing this however means taking the time to clear the property, carefully sorting through all of the contents to make sure that you keep important documents and anything of sentimental value. Possessions sometimes need to be distributed amongst family members too and all this takes planning and requires space to do. There are somethings that you might just not be ready to part with immediately too.

Space to sell property

Renting a storage unit can often make the process of selling a property easier. It may well be that the home you need to sell is quite cluttered with a lifetime of accumulations. This can be quite difficult for some prospective buyers to see past. Renting a personal storage unit to store the majority of the content of the property can mean that the property is more appealing and has a much more spacious feel then when it was full which can command a higher price. You can then deal with the contents at a later date, when you feel ready, and without any time pressure.
