For clients selling a vacant property we often get asked ‘should we furnish the property?’
Obviously it is the client’s choice, however here are just a few reasons why it is a good idea to do so:
•Viewers like to see how they can incorporate their own furniture into a room i.e. where their sofa or double bed would fit.
•Having furniture in a room can surprisingly also make the room look larger than an empty space.
•It can also help potential buyers understand the flow of a property; which room can be used as a living room, dining room, study etc.
•Finally, if the property is completely empty it’s very easy to spot flaws, scratches on walls, marks on carpets, having furniture in a room, draws the eye away and may prevent you from needing to re-decorate rooms.
We are working with Elaine @ Lemon and Lime Interiors who provides a furnishing service to clients wishing to rent furniture whilst their property is on the market. She gives some great examples of rooms unfurnished to furnished, the transformation is amazing!
