Furnished, Unfurnished Or Part Furnished?

Having decided that you are purchasing an investment property to rent out you then need to make a decision whether to let it out either furnished, un-furnished or part furnished. Yes, financial considerations are a consideration but let’s have a look at some of the other things that you need to bear in mind as well.

The fist thing to say is that the decision is solely that of you - the landlord. You can let it out with absolutely nothing in it, full of top quality furnishings or just partly furnished with everything except the beds in it as many people actually prefer to bring their own beds. 

Whilst furnishing the property does involve an initial outlay you may be interested to note that there are a number of companies that specialise in providing furniture packages. These furniture packs come in various price ranges so if you were catering to the executive rental market you can purchase a top quality furniture pack that will help you achieve the premium rental you would expect. If you were intending to rent the property out to students there are suitable furniture packs for that sector of the market.  
Furnishing Show Homes

If you are a house builder specialising in constructing and selling one-off executive homes or a major developer looking to build fifty new homes you will both want to sell those homes as quickly as possible and move onto the next profitable project.

These days, prospective purchasers want to have an idea of what their potential new home is going to look and feel like when it is fully furnished. Therefore, whilst numerous photographs of the furnished interiors of some of the previous homes you have built will be of benefit, nothing can have the effect of being able to walk around a show home that has been furnished “to sell”.

How often have you wandered through the rooms of a show home with your partner, talking to one another quietly about each room and then, as you both drive away, you ask your partner the question: ”wasn’t the property beautifully furnished, do you think they will sell the furniture to us as well as the house?”
