Benefits of Renting a Furnished Apartment
As a professional, if you’re regularly in need of rented accommodation due to work the benefits of renting a furnished apartment are pretty obvious. But it’s not only professionals that can benefit – almost anyone can reap a variety of advantages.
Let’s consider some of the key benefits of renting an apartment.
Benefit #1. Repairs to be Done?
In your own home, if repairs are needed to anything from lighting to appliances to roofing, it’s all on you to get things done. Plus, you have to pay for your own repairs.
When you rent an apartment you’ll be covered for all repairs. Simply inform the owner and soon enough – or hopefully soon enough, you’ll have things put right. And you don’t have to spend a single cent either.
Benefit #2. No Upfront Costs for Furniture, Appliances, Etc.
Buying furniture, appliances, and more costs a pretty penny, and if this is your first home that’s exactly what you’d have to do – buy all your own stuff. If, on the other hand, you opt to rent, there are no upfront costs involved besides the rental downpayment.
On top of that, if you need to relocate anytime soon, you’ll have to find a way to take all your items with you. Obviously, there’s more expense involved in doing that. Rented apartment? There’s none of that to worry about.
Benefit #3. Ideal on Short Notice
If you buy a home it typically will take months to make up your mind about which home to go for. After all, it’s a very big investment so there’s a lot of calculation involved.
On the other hand, when you rent an apartment, sure, there’s quite a bit of thought that goes into the process, but you can sign the contract and move in within a matter of a few days or even less time than that. Then, it’s fully furnished already so there’s no shopping to be done.
Benefit #4. Add-Ons
A further upside to renting a furnished apartment is that there are likely some highly beneficial add-ons to be had. Perhaps there’s a waste collection service? These days, there’s bound to be internet. Possibly cable TV as well.
Benefit #5. Saves Time
While some of us love to invest our time looking on Pinterest for decor, others, including me, prefer to allow someone else to handle all of that.
With a rented apartment, you’ll get a nicely decorated place without having to look on Pinterest or without having to spend any money.
Benefit #6. Easy Move
When you’re moving into a new place, you’ll have a busy day ahead of you. But with a rented apartment, there are none of the hassles that come with moving furniture from one location to the other. You simply need to pack up your belongings, grab the keys to your accommodation, and you’re all set!
Benefit #7. No Long-Term Lease Commitment
Many of us know how long we’ll be living over the next 12 months or more. But for some of us, we simply do not know – and we don’t necessarily know where we’re going to be 12 weeks from now, let alone 12 months from now. For furnished apartments, leases are typically far shorter than the traditional lease counterpart. So there are no concerns that you’ll be breaking your lease when it’s time to move on.
