Furniture For Your Student Son Or Daughter
 
In recent years there has been an increasing trend for well-heeled parents who have substantial equity in their homes to use some of that equity and arrange a further advance with their mortgage lender to buy a one-bedroom apartment for their student son or daughter to live in whilst away at University. Some have even bought a larger investment property to be occupied by their child along with a number of their student friends as a commercial venture.
 
Having completed the purchase what then needs to be arranged is all the furniture that will be required by the occupants. Just the thought of visiting a couple of retail parks looking at various furnishings is probably not a pleasant thought – it is not as though the items are for your own use.
 
Wouldn’t it be great if you could visit one location and purchase almost all the furnishings that are required? Well, you can and that location is called the Internet. There are numerous companies who provide furniture online so that you can order most items on the computer.
 
However, you must remember that the furniture you require is to be used by students and, whilst your son or daughter, may respect their belongings and other peoples that may not apply to some of their guests or other students whilst they are living away from home at University.

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?”
