I am trying to decorate my airbnb rental and need a full set of dining and bedroom furniture. I went through a few local furniture outlets, as well as wayfair, overstock, etc, but any decent sets will cost at least 5-6k. Does anyone know places where I can get cheap furniture, and most importantly, in sets? Located in Phoenix, AZ.
Yard sale/garage sale is out of the picture because it is simply too time consuming and unpredictable.
@Tony Wang Ikea?
@Andrew Zannotti Yep tried it there. No luck.
What area are you in? I've had really good luck with craigslist for furniture. Also, antiques are super cheap right now, look on ebay for antique shops in your area.
Craigslist, second hand stores, goodwill and salvation army all places I would start.
oh and habitat for humanity restore, amazing what I find at the one by my office.
@Tony Wang possibly check estate sales?
@Tony Wang my wife and I were recently in this position. We did a mix of IKEA, Amazon, and Costco. We were able to fully furnish our unit for $3k.
How big is your space? That will be the main driving factor in your budget to furnish the space.
@Jill F. I'm in AZ. Got my old furniture from craigslist before, but it was really time consuming with a lot of hassle. I guess I am going through the trouble to find the one store that is a perfect balance of price and convenience for me, so I don't need to worry about the furniture stuff in any future projects.
@Chris Svendsen I tried several second hand stores and most furniture there is in ****** condition. Thanks for the suggestion of humanity restore though, I'll give it a shot tomorrow. Looks like they have some decent stuff according to the pictures.
@Kevin Allen Never heard of that. Google leads me to a few local stores. I'll check them too.
@Ryan Riches It's around 800 sqft, 1b1b with a living room. Amazon is going to be my last resort if I can't find any good local deals.
Facebook marketplace hands down...we are setting up an AirBNB in Delaware.
Lazy Boy sleeper sofa - $225
Full metal/glass dinette - $200
Washer/dryer combo, single unit - $250
For my private home - 104" Crate and Barrel dining table with bench, with 5 ivory tufted chairs...$900.
All FB Marketplace. Sellers and buyers rate each other which is awesome.

@Amanda W. I’m with Amanda on this one. Facebook marketplace allows you to purchase furniture at at lower cost while also helping your neighbors/community.
@Tony Wang . My wife and I just furnished a small beach cottage with Salvation Army, Goodwill, and letting friends and family know what we needed. I was worried I was going to have $5000 into furniture for this place, but I think we have about $500 in the furniture ($100 just on pillows!). This is our own personal place, not a rental, so I would like to think we didn’t just settle for junk, it is the look my wife had pinned on her Pinterest boards. Some pieces may need painting, but that is easy enough.
@Tony Wang FB marketplace
@Tony Wang It is a bit of a hassle but sometimes you can get some great deals on floor models. Just let the furniture store I know you’re looking and they will let you know what they’ve got a what’s coming up. Try something low end like Bob’s or Value City if you have them in your area.
@Tony Wang Delaney auction we furnished 2 units from there. Wednesday nights and they can deliver.
We do mostly Amazon. They have a steel frame bed with headboard and memory foam mattress we buy. Reviews almost always say.... wow great mattresses. Dressers we find locally o FB marketplace or goodwill and paint.
Congrats you bought a STR. Furnishing it is only part of the hard work you will be doing.
Also, we set up reoccurring shipments for all the stuff we use. Toiletries, cleaning, etc
How close are you to Scottsdale? Find garage sales/Facebook pages in North Scottsdale.
Lots of 1%ers in Scottsdale who get rid of their "junk" most of us would consider quite nice.
Or use OfferUp and target Scottsdale/Phoenix/Chandler.
@Tony Wang Facebook marketplace.
@Collin Smith Unfortunately I am not a handy guy so even painting furniture is too much for me...
@Erin Malone My washer/dryer pair is lowes floor model. I had my info left to a few sales reps, but no one called yet.
@Stone Jin That looks like what I am looking for, one-stop shopping, delivery and deeply discounted price. I'll try it next Wednesday. Thank you!
@Uriah D. Thank you. Airbnb itself is probably gonna be a full-time job. I'm just giving it a shot.
@Matt McConkey I am in north Phoenix, a bit far away. But yea, I'll keep an eye on the sales in that area.
@Tony Wang cort furniture outlet in chandler has great deals on full bedroom sets. Also American furniture warehouse always has killer deals and the best delivery fees.
@Tony Wang try OfferUp. Better than fb marketplace IMO
@Tony Wang the flea market
@Tony Wang offer up... I once sold a couch for 75 and bought a better one for 50
It’s a great place to find good deals
