If you’re looking to sell a house that’s completely empty, you may face quite a tricky challenge. While some potential buyers are imaginative and love the blank canvas offered by a house on the market without a single piece of furniture inside, an empty home can be an off-putting prospect to some buyers. With this in mind, if you need to sell your home, let’s take a look at your options.
Selling a house without furniture
Just as a house with great kerb appeal will sell easily, staging your home with beautiful interior furnishings is often much more appealing. Unfortunately, it’s sometimes unavoidable that you’ll have to sell an empty house. Perhaps you’ve had to move cities for a new job, or you’ve simply been unable to sell a home before you needed to move into a new one.
Whatever the reason, having a bare and empty dining room, master bedroom and living room can make it difficult to sell a home as it’s hard for many prospective buyers to imagine themselves living there.
What can you do?
One possible solution is to employ the services of a home stager – someone who can prepare your home specifically for sale. This can involve the rental of temporary pieces of furniture and soft furnishings or even the rental of art for the walls or crockery for the cupboards. The trick, of course, is to make the house seem lived-in and welcoming, but neutral and uncluttered. A bit like a boutique hotel room.
Of course, this sort of prep for your house comes at a cost – and can be time-consuming – so may not be a sensible option.

Another reason houses can end up for sale without any furniture inside is the hugely variable timescales that selling a house can have with a traditional real estate agent. And the longer your house is unoccupied and empty, the harder it becomes to sell.
That’s why it could be worth getting a free, no-obligation valuation from UK Property Cash Buyers. It’ll cost you nothing, it guarantees you an instant offer, and if you’re happy with it, we can complete within 7 days. This way, you can be sure you’ll sell your empty house with zero hassle.
