Advantages/Disadvantages of Offering a Rental Furnished?

I have a basement unit that I’m planning to (eventually) rent out.  I was thinking about maybe offering it furnished.
 
Landlords, have any of you offered rental units furnished?  If so, what would you say are the advantages/disadvantages?
 
My guess is that offering a place furnished might mean that the tenant is likely to be younger and less likely to stay past the initial lease period.  Presumably, the latter would be a disadvantage; from what I hear, it’s difficult enough to find a good tenant that once you have one, you want that person to stay.
 
Thoughts?
