Partner Content: Buy your home—and get a deal on furniture too
Buying a home is a massive, exciting undertaking—there’s the thrill of the hunt and the excitement of the deal—not to mention the fun of decorating the new place and buying furnishings and accessories to make it yours.
What you need before you get to this point, however, is a good real estate agent. But with so many to choose from in San Diego, picking the agent that’s the right fit for you can be a real challenge. Obviously, you need to hire someone with whom you have a good rapport, who honestly has your best interest at heart, whom you can trust, someone with a track record, and perhaps someone who can offer you additional perks, such as Michael Bilicki of Bilicki Rees Real Estate.
Greathouse Furniture, co-owned by Michael and Paul Rees, now offers new homeowners a full package designed to save you thousands of dollars in furniture and flooring after you close escrow—a definite plus since the majority of homebuyers forget to account for new furniture purchases until they get the keys to their dream home.
“There’s a very small percentage of the population who can afford to buy a house and furnish it right away,” Michael says. “Most people want to paint, change flooring and buy new furniture, but that’s a lot to budget for. Realistically, it takes years to do it all.”
Furniture is among the costliest of purchases. Fortunately, you don’t have to bury yourself in debt to make your new residence cozy and stylish. Greathouse aims to help make some of those changes more affordable by offering clients who purchase a home with Bilicki Rees Real Estate the opportunity to buy new furniture and flooring from Greathouse at wholesale as long as they live in the home. Complimentary design services are included as part of the package, too.
To help understand the savings and what “at wholesale” really means, Paul, who also co-owns Bilicki Rees Real Estate, says a client recently saved $3,500 on their home furnishings with this program. “The furniture was priced at $9,800 online,” Paul explains. But with the program, the client bought it all for only $6,300.
“Most people are stretched after they buy a home in San Diego,” Michael says. “We can offer hard savings so they don’t have to feel like they’re living on a shoestring budget after they close.”
