Is furniture important? I always tell my clients to ignore how a home is furnished, because they are not buying the furniture, which is usuallly the case, only once has a home I have sold been furnished and included in the sale.
But I have to admit I love watching house hunters international on HGTV, and so many of the homes are furnished and it does make a difference to the buyers what furniture is included. They often choose one home over another because of the furniture. Now I am the first to admit some of these homes are vacation homes, so having everything included is a nice package deal for the buyer.
But, several of these homes are in countries where they take their kitchens with them when they move, can you inagine, taking all your appliances, cabinets and counters off the walls. That would be an interesting walk through.
But sometimes it seems to make sense and I wonder how many of you are finding clients who are relocating, or getting married willing to include all their furniture? Let's leave aside the problems of mortgage appraisals for now it is not a bad idea. Everything is turnkey, just move in and everything is there, what you don't like you swap out. Do you find this an option in your markets?
Would builders do better to include a furnishing package, everyone loves those model homes? So how important is the furniture?
