Just wondering how you let your investments. Furnished or unfurnished? I am guessing furnished is easier to rent and you can ask for higher rents. (assuming decent furniture) Downside being wear and tear and replacement costs. Are you more likely to have a greater turnover of tenants as it is easier for them to move on? I assume that unfurnished is the opposite of the above. Therefore does it boil down to "Replacement costs of furniture v Increased rental?" What are your thoughts?
