Nowadays more and more people are quitting their nine to five jobs and have shown interest in the property market. Whether it is as a landlord, agent or caretaker, there are lucrative careers for everyone. This means that there are more properties available for rent and increasing competition. So how do you make yourself stand out from the competition? The answer is rental furniture.
HAVING RENTAL FURNITURE ALLOWS YOU TO TAKE ATTRACTIVE PICTURES OF YOUR HOUSE OR APARTMENT
Studies have shown that people gravitate more towards furnished units over unfurnished ones. This is especially true for university students, singles, people who have just moved to the city and so on. They are less likely to have furniture to move around at the end of every lease or simply can’t afford any at the moment.
When pictures of the furnished unit are listed, your space can look more polished and possibly even more spacious.
This is also great for new landlords who can’t exactly afford to buy furniture for their units right away but are interested in rent to own furniture! Many times, renting a piece for more than 12 months gives people the chance to take full ownership of the piece.
HAVING RENTAL FURNITURE MAKES YOUR SPACE LOOK BIGGER AND GIVES PROSPECTIVE TENANTS AN IDEA OF HOW MUCH FURNITURE THEY CAN COMFORTABLY FIT INSIDE IT
It is a well-known fact that strategically placed furniture can make a space look much bigger than it really is. Simple things like pulling furniture away from walls or leaving ample walkways can be the difference between visually shrinking and enlarging a room.
A furnished unit can also help a prospective tenant visualize how much furniture can fit inside the room. This is especially important for people who plan to move in with furniture to cut additional rental costs.
A furnished room also allows prospective tenants to visualize living in this area, rather than an empty space that will be a lot less appealing.
YOU CAN GET THEM CHANGED MORE OFTEN, MAKING YOUR UNIT LOOK MORE MODERN
When you purchase pieces of furniture for your property, it is quite an investment. Furniture purchased in 2018 may not be chic in 2025 and in this market, appearance is a very important factor. When you get custom furniture, you will be stuck with them for a while, unless you can find someone to take it off your hands.
With rented furniture, you can get rid of them in no time and rent more suitable furniture for the next batch of prospective clients!
So even if your client says “Love the apartment, hate the furniture” you can let them know that you are willing and able to change things around and suit their needs.
