PODS... Alien Beings, or Real Estate Tool?

By
Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Plus

When you hear the term PODS, does it invoke images of extraterrestrial parasites bent on dominating the Earth?

If so, you're probably a fan of classic Science Fiction films. However, there is another, less eerie definition of the term PODS, and it can be a very helpful tool for home sellers.

PODS also stands for Portable On Demand Storage. Think of PODSas your own personal storage container. As homeowners, we all accumulate a lot of "stuff" in our homes. That's perfectly fine when you're living there, but when you decide to sell your home, your belongings can become a detriment. Buyers want to picture themselves in your home, and all your knick knacks may not be appealing to them.

That's where the PODS come in. They leave the container in your driveway, you fill it with items you want to remove from your house, they haul it away to store in their secure indoor warehouse, your home looks gorgeous and sells quickly, and they drop the container off at your new home on moving day. Voila! The moving process made easy.

PODS aren't necessary in all situations, but they can be a useful tool for many home sellers. After all, anything we can do to make the moving process go more smoothly is a positive thing!

And I promise these PODS won't try to replace humanity...

I have found PODS easy to use, and they certainly allow people to not only sort through their junk before they decide to store it, but also enable them to realize that they are in fact moving and that this is the start of the process.  Charlie Gantz, Greenwood, IN; J.D., M.B.A.; Owner/Principal Broker, Atlas Commercial Real Estate, LLC
