There are homeowners who are hoping to improve furnishings in their vacation home, but they are tight on a budget. Our owners often find the best deals on Labor Day, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. Due to COVID-19, a lot of major box stores have been forced to release their deal for the upcoming Black Friday a lot sooner since most shoppers will not be entering stores this year. Here are the best deals we have found this year for vacation rentals that might need some updated appliances.
Home Depot and Lowe’s are pretty common to shop appliances. Home Depot is selling an LG stainless steel microwave for $198 which saves you $120 off the original price. For those owners that prefer to decorate their vacation rental for guests who visit around Christmas time, they are selling a 7.5’ Pre-Lit artificial Christmas tree for only $80! That’s $120 off the original price.
The most common item bought on Black Friday for vacation rentals is TVs. Walmart is selling a TCL 55-inch 4K UHD Roku TV for $148, one of the lowest prices on 4K TVs that we could find. The brand Onn. Has a 50-inch 4K UHD Roku Smart TV for $128 saving you at least $100.
Walmart also has a deal on a Keurig K-Compact brewer for $35. This is a good selling feature for guests when advertising a fully equipped kitchen. This is convenient for families on the go before heading out to the parks. Macy’s is featuring a deal on an 82” Lylie sofa for $529 when it is normally $999. They are also offering up to 75% off bedding. Comforters and sheets are the most often replaced items in a vacation home. It’s time to stock up on sheets for the year and get those Disney-themed comforters to help your property stand out among the other rentals.
Take advantage of all these stores having to release these deals early so you have some time to better plan out what you need for your vacation rental. No more having to rush and fight off. Just click and ship. If you have a property management company that oversees your property, they will more than likely coordinate delivery of these items for you if you can’t be there yourself. Your property manager is also the best source to tell you what you think your vacation home needs. They are the ones communicating with the guests and have years of experience on what a rental needs to be successful. If you’re not sure what is needed to properly equip your rental, it’s best to find a property manager who can guide you through this process. We are here to help, just give us a call today!
