Why rent home staging furniture… when you can buy?
There are more advantages to owning furniture for home staging than renting it.
Every buyer has heard it and every agent has said it…
If you’re an agent, you know that you’ve said it at least once…
Why rent when you can buy?
The advantages are obvious to agents who are selling houses, so why would it be any different for home staging furniture?
When you rent, that’s money you will never get back.
When you buy, there’s always the option to resell… usually for some profit!
The same is true for home staging furniture when buying it at discount prices.
You can post an ad to sell it or put it in a consignment shop.
Either way you get some of that money back, if not all in some cases.
Consignment shops are an excellent way to get money back on slightly used home staging furniture.
They will always try to get the most for you & them.
Is it because your slightly used home staging furniture makes their consignment shop look great?
Better believe that it plays a role.
They want their store to look exactly like a staged home.
Instead of random pieces of furniture sorted out, your home staging furniture usually has a common style.
Consignment furniture stores are a great synergy business for real estate professionals & home staging professionals.

Market uncertainty should definitely add to the decision making when it comes to renting home staging furniture.
Sure, we know that staging a home can help it sell faster, but nobody can be sure exactly how long a property will be on the market.
Could take days or it could take weeks, but the longer it takes those rental fees can add up faster than we like.
That’s money from the sale that you can’t get back.
Rented furniture won’t bring you any money in the end, whereas investing in home staging furniture for your business brings assets & value to your business by impressing your clients.
So, I have to ask again…
