People usually consider a real estate as an investment, and they might be right, but the majority of them don’t know that even the furniture can be considered as an investment. If you have an old house with furniture of 100 years old or more, you could restore it, and the general value of the property would be significantly increased.
However, the principle can be applied for new houses, with an impressive modern design. In this case, the furniture is a part of the house, so it can be considered as a real investment. The disadvantage is that a buyer might not like the décor, and he would probably want to change it. In this case, even if you have invested thousands of dollars in modern furniture, you might need to take it with you, and you can be sure that the respective furniture would not be suited in any other place.
Furniture is an investment as long as you can find a buyer that is willing to accept it, and to buy the house with it. Furniture is an investment only if it is customized for the respective house. However, the modern houses, and especially those with values of millions of dollars are sold this way, and the tendency might appear even for properties with smaller values. The condition is for the house to look good with the respective furniture, and to be unique, specially designed for the respective house.
Furniture designers recommend new owners of houses to decorate their homes this way. It is one of the best methods to increase the value of a house with small costs, and you will probably like the furniture. In the majority of cases, the new buyers of the respective home would like the décor, so they would accept to buy it this way, changing only a part of decorations and appliances.
