What are the advantages of offering a furniture package as part of a development inclusion?
Apartments available in occupancy ready condition are proving to be a huge sales incentive for buyers and investors. FMA services help to give developers and property marketers a greater competitive edge in the market. The bottom line is that a furnished apartment sells faster.
The number of discerning buyers seeking a move-in ready solution is growing exponentially. An ever increasing number of developers are turning to our furniture packages. Not just to secure apartment sales, but also to offer a value add to their projects. This type of offering has been integral to the successful outcome of many large-scale multi-unit developments.
Benefits of a furniture package:
- Value add for purchasers
- Sales incentives
- Investor rental returns
- Getting sales over the line in an unsure market
- Extended offering to purchasers as part of the whole lifestyle package
- Great for overseas clients
- Perfect for build-to-rent properties
- Lifts the bar for the development
- Tax benefits
- Save time and money with great value packages supplied and installed with one point of contact throughout the process.
- The on-going after sales service provided to purchaser
How do FMA’s furniture packages help to create a better investment opportunity?
The inclusion of a quality furniture package within a development provides a huge incentive for both the buyer and the rental market. An occupancy ready apartment not only equates to an increased return on investment and higher rental returns, it will also attract a better type of tenant. For the developer, that means attracting the required demographic.
Tax benefits are also an added advantage, especially for acquisition groups. Our view is with projects now being retained by entities (specifically for rental markets), there will be entities formed and high worth individuals taking a long term hold on all or part of new and existing developments.
How does FMA’s customer focused service help businesses?
Our development specific furniture packages bring value to a development and have proven to be a powerful incentive in securing sales for off the plan purchasers.
The benefits of working with FMA are two-fold; The headache and stress of being time poor and having to appoint an in-house team to source and order the right type of furnishings, plus manage the deliveries is completely removed for our clients. We add value to our client’s projects and bring a unique offing to the market.

What do you see for the future of developments in Australia?
The Build To Rent Model
The build-to-rent model is becoming an increasingly popular housing solution for Millennials. Young people looking for alternative options for living. They also seek greener options for high rise living, a shared community and even a shared economy.
High-end amenities and conveniences
The future of housing is set to see a new asset class for Australia and with it will come a greater demand for improving the housing experience for tenants. High-end amenities and conveniences are going to be the biggest selling point for this new way to rent.
Over supply and valuation issues
There is potential for over supply and valuation issues with build-to-sell developments, which is where FMA’s furniture packages will provide a value-add bonus and help to secure sales. The inclusion of a project aligned furniture package will become a standard offering within new developments.
What is FMA’s focus for 2020?
Furnish My Apartment will maintain our focus of providing high quality turn-key furniture packages while further developing our extensive style range.
We will continue to support developers and property marketers with furniture solutions that help to secure sales and tenants, with particular emphasis on driving the build-to-rent and vertical retirement living movements forward.
