Furnishing your second home for personal vacations or short term rentals
Most of the Disney area properties we sell come fully furnished and completely equipped with everything you need for short term rentals, or for your personal vacations. If you are buying a home that was a bank owned foreclosure, these usually come completely unfurnished and in need of some care and attention to get the property back to a condition where someone would be happy renting it.
If you buy (or already own) a property that is already fully furnished, maybe the furniture is suffering from years of wear and tear from constant rentals. A new furniture package can work wonders very quickly and fairly inexpensively. Remember that anything you spend to improve or repair your short term rental property is tax deductible!
It's always nice to buy an already nicely furnished home, but don't be put off if the home you like is unfurnished. If you don't want the hassle of furnishing and equipping to the required short term rental standard, don't despair. We have contacts with local furniture companies who are experienced in the special business of totally fitting out vacation homes with everything you need.
If you choose to work with us to buy your vacation home or investment property, we will be happy to put you in touch with someone who will be happy to take care of every detail of delivery and set up of every item, while you are thousands of miles away! In coordination with us, your Realtor, as soon as you are ready to have everything set up in your newly purchased home, they will take care of all the arrangements for you.
Package prices can vary, depending on the company you choose and how extravagant your tastes in upgrades, but an average would be around $15,000 to $25,000 for absolutely everything you need for a short term rental, delivered and totally set up.
You may be tempted to try and buy your furniture and housewares from various different stores and then set everything up yourself. Our past experience with buyers who have done that (almost all our buyers live thousands of miles away) shows this to be a very time consuming, energy draining exercise, fraught with hassles and often no cheaper in the long run. Why not trust your new investment to the experts who do this for a living!
