Whitegoods for Rental Properties

Whitegoods for Rentals and Properties for Sale

As a property owner looking to furnish a house or apartment and whether you’re preparing for rental or renovating prior to sale, you need quality household appliances. From fridges and freezers to washing machines and dryers, quality whitegoods can boost your rental income and improve your property sale presentation.

Let’s look at both of these scenarios so you can make your property dreams come true.

Houseold appliances in rental properties

In Australia, rental properties come with or without household appliances. Depending on your property type and location, you’re likely expected to supply certain items. For example, ovens are included in the vast majority of rental properties, air conditioners and dishwashers feature in many, and fridges and washing machines are included in some.

What you’re expected to supply comes down to two factors: location and price. Inner-city apartments are often full of whitegoods, but suburban properties are less likely to include them. If you’re dealing with short-term or high-priced rentals, tenants are more likely to expect whitegoods. Even when it’s not an obligation, supplying whitegoods can lead to higher rental prices so it’s worth looking at your options.

Purchasing new retail items is often unnecessary in this situation, with factory seconds offering all the benefits without the unwanted costs. We keep a large variety of whitegoods in stock at our Brisbane warehouse, many of which are ideal for rental properties.  They come with full manufacturers warranty and are a fraction of the cost of new items.

Whitegoods and property sales

If you’re selling an apartment or house, consider the details. While property extensions and renovations make a huge difference to the outcome, staging is also incredibly important. Property staging, or home staging, is the preparation of a private residence for sale. It’s about getting your home ready for the market so it appeals to the right people at the right times.

Staging makes a great impression by highlighting the positive features of your home. It helps you appeal to a wide spectrum of buyers, so you can sell your home faster and command the highest price. Furniture and household appliances are central to staging because they make it easier for people to imagine living in your home.

Factory seconds are ideal for property sales, as you can stage your property perfectly without breaking the bank. These items look and function just like retail units, with a few minor differences. For example, some units may have small scratches and dents, and others may have been returned from previous customers.  A fridge looks much better than a large gap in the kitchen adn it certainly looks better in photos.  A fridge is often difficult to fit into a new place so incuding a new (scratch and dent) fridge in the sale price can tick another box for buyers.

If you want to lower your property management costs or improve your home sale presentation without compromising on quality, factory seconds are the perfect solution. Contact our team to learn more.
