UrbInfo Manchester Furnished vs Unfurnished Analysis July 2020
We've analysed every single property let in Manchester City Centre over the last year - nearly 11,500 in total - to bring you the most comprehensive comparison into rents achieved for furnished or unfurnished properties and which option is best for both landlords and tenants. The report also includes an analysis of flexible landlords who offer tenants a choice between having their home furnished or unfurnished.
The data we used were property listings from a multitude of sources from between June 2019 and June 2020. We then analysed the description data for these properties, selectively picking out those which detailed whether they were furnished or unfurnished. Rental data is presented gross (£ pcm) as well as per sq.ft. per annum to ensure a thorough like-for-like comparison is made between apartments in Manchester City Centre offering furnished, unfurnished or flexible.
