Selling a vacant home poses all sorts of challenges for real estate professionals. It feels uninspiring, doesn’t photograph well, the rooms appear smaller than they are, there is typically a lack of light, and you often are competing with furnished homes in your price point.
Staging a vacant home with furniture solves all of these problems and more.
So what do you need to know about renting furniture?
- There is typically a minimum rental term. Industry standard is three months. Shorter terms often require a surcharge.
- Payment requirements vary. Some companies require the entire rental to be paid upfront, others charge monthly with a security deposit required upfront.
