Is A Furnished Apartment Right For You?

posted on March 05, 2021

Looking for the perfect place to call home, but don’t want to invest your time and energy in decor? Whether you’re moving to a new city, temporarily relocating within the city, or in town for work, you have some options to explore. 

Top reasons to choose a furnished rental

Convenience and peace of mind

Finding the right furniture takes a lot of time and energy. You have to choose every single piece of furniture (bed, mattress, side table, desk, chair, couch, dining table etc.) to make your rental apartment more comfortable and livable. Assembling and/or fixing the furniture, and properly arranging it, takes time. If you have your own furniture, transporting it to the new rental takes a lot of time and energy. 

furnished rental saves a lot of time and trouble. It eases the transition. All you have to do is enjoy your pre-furnished home and the amenities that it has to offer!


A furnished rental can save you money. You don’t have to buy anything new. You don’t have to use moving services to have your furniture moved from one location to the other.  You simply move in, relax and enjoy the freedom of furnished living!


If decorating isn’t your forte, then a furnished rental may be a good option. Hanging a few paintings on the walls will make it feel homier. Your time and energy are free to spend on other priorities. 

A quick transition

For anyone new to the city, a short-term furnished rental helps you with the transition. With a short-term rental, you have the option of renting for a shorter period and won’t have to start looking for furniture, kitchenware, a microwave etc. or pay the huge costs associated with those things. If you are someone who has newly moved due to work or studies, then all you have to worry about is food, transportation, your work and your studies. The rest has been taken care of for you when renting one of our beautifully furnished suites.

How to Find Furnished Apartments or Condos

For those looking to find a furnished rental apartment or condo, you have options. If you need a furnished apartment, here are a few tips to help you find the right place:

1.    Ask. Sometimes apartments or condos can come furnished or unfurnished. If you see an apartment or condo that is right for you, it never hurts to ask if there’s an option for you to rent it with furniture.

2.    Work with a property manager. Working with a professional is a great way to find exactly what you’re looking for. They can scour the rental market and shortlist only the furnished apartments or condos that meet your needs.
