Furnished Property or Unfurnished One?

There’s always a dilemma when buying a home on choosing between a furnished and an unfurnished property offered by a developer or an individual seller. It’s not just the cost difference that will play in your mind, but also whether the finished product will comply your needs and taste. With many developers today offering fully furnished properties for buyers who always wanted to give their personal touches to their house, it’s a decision that demands some thinking.

With both unfurnished and furnished houses having their own merits and demerits, we will, in this article, take a look at the factors based on which you will be able to easily decide which one suits you best.

Furnished Houses
Furnished houses come in a selection of styles. Some are all inclusive and have everything you need from a bed, sofa, appliances, plates and cutlery.
Pros for Furnished
Moving into a furnished house is so easy since all you have to do is bring your clothes and personal articles. There is no need for lugging up heavy furniture or packing and unpacking. Additionally, you do not need to spend any time or extra money shopping for anything-it is there already.
Cons for Furnished
Furnished houses cost more to rent because everything is easily accessible. The furniture may be an outdated style. There is a chance that an item might get broken or dented, and if that does happen, the renter is responsible.

Unfurnished Houses
Unfurnished Houses do not consist of furnishings such as beds, couches or anything else. Also, some may not have any appliances at all.
Pros for Unfurnished
An unfurnished house gives you the liberty to decorate it the way you wish. You can paint the wall personal colors, add memorable artwork and pick out your own style of furnishings. Meanwhile, you wouldn’t have to be bothered with the idea of causing damage to the landlord’s property, in case it is rented property.
Cons for Unfurnished
Unfurnished houses can be annoying if you have no patience for shopping, or have no idea how to decorate a home. Furnishing an apartment is quite expensive, and a bother to deal with is bringing up bulky pieces. At the same time, it is your responsibility to move everything in and then once your lease expires, you’d have to take it all out.
