You’ve toyed with the idea of buying a furnished home or even renting one but you’re either arguing with yourself or maybe a partner or spouse about whether that’s really a good idea or not? Here are three great reasons to consider buying a furnished house, especially in Hawaii.
If you’re relocating from overseas or across the county, you’ve probably been told to sell as much as possible and move as little as possible. People often have a hard time doing this because they become attached to their own items or they simply don’t want to pay to re-furnish an entire house. This is where buying an already furnished house is such a great idea. People may be moving from here to other states or even other countries, which means they also don’t want to move an entire household full of furniture. Shipping furniture and items across the sea can cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars so buying a home that is already furnished with everything you’ll need to save you a lot of money.
It’s a good short-term option.
If you’re planning on buying a vacation home in the Bay Area and only plan on using it certain times of the year, you might consider renting it out and having a property management service take care of all of the necessary details while you are away. Having a completely furnished house saves you time, money and is obviously more appealing to potential renters.
It saves stress and time.
Consider walking into a model showroom home and being able to put an earnest money deposit down on everything, the furniture, the appliances, the drapes, and the decorations. It’s all done. You don’t have to decorate, stage or design the house as the majority of it is all done. Of course, you want to add your own little touch, but this can save you hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars. You can simply move right in with no more than your close and personal items.
There are several furnished apartments, condominiums and homes throughout the island that may be a great option for you. Some homes may also just have a guest room or house that is furnished, which could offer the best of both worlds; half furnished, the other half your own design and furniture.
