- less wear and tear risk
- longer tenancy contracts as tenants are investing more effort into the property by moving their items into it (if you want a longer contract)
- less need for management
- it's cheaper and faster to get ready to rent out
- it's cheaper and faster to get ready to sell if you are looking to sell it after tenants move out
Whatever you decide, you need to be as certain as you can be as to which route to take. Some landlords equivocate on the above, and try to "go down the middle". They end up half-furnishing a property and they struggle to rent it out, or get reluctant tenants who can't find anything better. No half measures!
