Salvation Army, reuse stores, any second hand furniture stores.
Facebook marketplace- I gave up on Craigslist lately . Everyone uses FB now and the deals are awesome
@Tony Wang are there any consignment stores near you? There is a local one near me that gets the furniture from model homes, so that might be a good option for you.
Look up American Furniture Warehouse in Denver. They have everything, super reasonable, and they now deliver all over the country. They own a lot of their own supply and delivery chain and the furniture, while not top of the line, is quite decent. I think it would be perfect for your situation. Good luck, and if you need a local, personal shopper, let me know! :-)
I searched and found this post Open to find something I had not thought of myself. I actually have a wholesale furniture account where I used to onw furniture store and I can make that available to anyone who may need it as well. Delivery throughout the U.S. is not a problem. I used to allow people who purchased homes through me (loan company or flips i did) to get anything they wanted at 20% above cost and I would be happy to do that with anyone intrested.
Quality of furniture is great and it's the main Warehouse Harverty's carries.
Also I would suggest reaching out to furniture rental companies like Rent A Center and speaking directly to the owner for pieces they are willing to sell deeply discounted. You would be surprised at what can come of that.
@Tony Wang I would recommend going during the day if possible to view what's for sale at delaneys, some of their stuff is scratch and dent from the big furniture stores so you would want to inspect. They also sell some new stuff. the first 30 minutes they sell little house wares like lamps and blenders. The furniture comes around 8PM. Also I would recommend going a couple times as prices change one week to the next depending on who's at auction. I think the July 4th week might be a good week as many people leave town and will probably have a smaller crowd. Also the delivery will cost about $100 depending on how they will go. It's through a 3rd party. So the more you buy in 1 session the cheaper delivery, example if you buy 3 things across 3 weeks shipping would be $300 and not $100.
How cheap? In the Phoenix area forget the second hand stores like salvation army for actual furniture, if they get something good it disappears quickly. I have seen few things I would put in an Airbnb. Habitat can be good, I think the central phoenix habitat gets some good stuff. There is also maybe a habitat up towards Scottsdale that should have good stuff. The best I think is consignment and vintage/antique stores, look online before to see what they have on site. Red rooster in Mesa I had luck at but if you are north there are a couple in Scottsdale I can't seem to get to that look like they have nice furniture. They vary in quality so if you look at reviews/websites before you go you might be better idea of what their specialties are. I haven't had luck on craigslist in Phoenix area and it is more time efficient to go to consignment and antique shops. I have seen things on wayfair I like but haven't ordered from them.
@Tony Wang I furnished mine with a combo of craigslist, IKEA, Goodwill, and donations from friends who were replacing their bedroom sets and gave me their quality wood ones. Another great place is SwipSwap Scottsdale or North Phoenix Facebook groups. You might be really surprised by the quality of furniture you can find at Walmart.com and HomeDepot.com. I know I was. Also, there is a store in Scottsdale called Living Spaces. If you buy a sofa, for example, from them for example and pay a premium on top (10%?) they will clean and/or replace it if it gets damaged. But I bought my STR's leather sofa on craigslist for $200, so I'm more likely to go the cheap-but-looks-great route. Happy hunting!
P.S. A friend bought a whole bunch of furniture from someone moving out of state for like $3,000. Look for those whole-house opportunities!
I second Amazon for the mattresses! The reviews don’t lie. They are affordable and great quality. They send them compressed so the big issue will be to let it air out as it does have a strong packaging odor.
