Something that has always driven me up a wall is salespeople who insist upon helping me even when I've expressed that I'd just like to walk through and see what they have to offer. And when I start to show any sort of interest in something they'll rush back up and engage in conversation.... And as soon as they understand what I'm shopping for the magic words come out of their mouths.... "Well.... If it's for a Rental you don't want anything as nice as this... " They stand there with that look of disdain on their face, with their nose in the air.... and I tell them "You're right... I really want something nicer.... My guests are usually people like your Mom.... they're here in the area visiting family, and they don't want to stay on your sofa.... They want to stay with me.... because they know that I care about them, and want them to have an enjoyable experience."
Your budget might say "Cheap" but cheap furniture will give your listing a cheap feel... AND... it will wear out a lot quicker, so you'll be back shopping for more cheap furniture sooner than you think. Look for well built, durable furnishings. Your guests will appreciate your attention to detail.
