The two best months to buy home furniture is January and July. July is coming up so start now researching the brands, styles and prices for that new couch, love seat, bedroom suite and whatever home furniture you need or want to replace. Then get your shopping shoes on when July hits
Why July? Makes sense when you think about it from the store’s point of view. Which shoppers always need to think about when shopping for the home.
Summer months can be the deadest months for furniture stores so they have to make deals to get shoppers in the store.
Dealing with furniture moving and furniture deliveries and decorating is a lot more appealing in good weather than in snowy, cold weather.
New furniture models and designs will be released in August. Furniture stores need to get rid of yesterday’s models to open up showroom floor space for the new sets. That means making good deals and having sales specials.
It’s been awhile since Christmas season and awhile to next Christmas so money could be burning in the pockets of shoppers without the guilt or fear.
When it comes to home furniture shopping and purchasing, the options can be endless which is why it’s good to start the research now. Look up styles on the web then go to the varying stores to actually sit, touch and look up close to them. Oh, and make sure you measure the space you want to fill first. If it don’t fit then you need to quit. At least for that particular item.
How about payments? You have four choices in how you want to pay. You can go cash, credit, rent to own or used. If you can’t go cash outright then look at your payment options to consider credit or rent to own stores.
There is a time where credit is the way to go then there’s the time when rent to own is the way to go. Both have the same premise – the less payments, the less the cost so do the math on both transactions. Be wary of those stores that offer the 0% interest for the first year or you don’t have start making payments for a year or two. Because when that offer is up or payments begin, the interest rates most likely will be very expensive.
If you go used, then make sure you test that furniture out really well. And, rent to own stores can be great for used deals. They need to have new furniture on the showroom floor so getting rid of used furniture is a priority.
There’s also the showroom models. That exact furniture that customers have been testing out for the past month(s) in the store can be a steal of a deal especially during, well, you guessed it, July.
