RENTING FURNITURE IS AN AFFORDABLE WAY TO UPDATE THE LOOK OF A HOME. Renting contemporary pieces of furniture is a very easy and quick way to help update a dated home. It is much more cost efficient to rent than buy furniture that you may not be able to use in your new home.

ONLY 10% OF HOME BUYERS CAN ACTUALLY VISUALIZE THE POTENTIAL OF A HOME. 9 out of 10 people have a difficult time visualizing the function of a room, the size of a room and how their furniture will fit in the room. Rental furniture is a great resource to eliminate the buyers’ hesitation and makes it easy for them to focus on the home.

HOMES STAGED WITH ATTRACTIVE FURNITURE AND ACCESSORIES SELL MORE QUICKLY FOR HIGHER PRICES. When potential buyers see a house with beautiful updated furniture and accessories, it shows as warm and inviting. They perceive a much stronger value to that property. That stronger perceived value often translates into a higher selling price and less days on the market.

THE RIGHT FURNITURE WILL CAPITALIZE ON THE POSITIVE ASPECTS OF A HOME. When a room is empty, people focus on the negative. They will focus on the creaking floors, the lack of storage, the old windows, etc. When a room is furnished, they have something positive to focus on.

BUYERS BUY ON EMOTION. The number one reason a buyer purchases a home is because it “felt like home.” It was warm, inviting and the buyer made an emotional connection with the home. People do not emotionally attach themselves to blank space and empty walls. The right furnishings will create that love at first sight feeling and buyers will pay more and fight harder for a home when their emotions are involved. – Text by Julie O, Lux Furniture Rentals
