What Does It Mean to Have a Furnished Rental Property?
The vast majority of rental properties include basic appliances, such as refrigerators, ovens, and occasionally additional amenities such as a microwave. But when we’re talking about furnishing, we mean supplying the property with couches, beds, tables, and occasionally even bedclothes and linens.
Whether or not this is the right situation for you depends on a number of factors.
The Pros and Cons of a Furnished Rental Property
First things first: you won’t have as many choices if you’re looking for a furnished rental property. However, this may be the right choice if you are in a position where you can’t buy and move furniture on your own. So what are the pros and cons of a furnished rental property? On the positive side, moving will be easier. Let’s face it, a furnished apartment means you will have to transport a smaller number of items to your new home. You can plan on having fewer belongings and, in turn, potentially save money on moving services and new furniture.
On the other hand, you’ll likely face a higher liability. You need to make sure you take care of the furniture—just like you would with your own. You’ll also have less control over the décor of your home, but you can often add your own personal touches to bring your own sense of style out.
