If you are moving your family to a new area because of a job transfer, you may be feeling overwhelmed. Don’t stress! First ask your employer if the company offers relocation services that will cover the costs of getting you situated. Alternatively, find out if funds can be provided for a short-term, furnished apartment or corporate housing, tailored to the needs of those relocating for business.
Then ask yourself the following questions:
If the answer to many of these questions is “no,” consider a short-term, furnished rental. Although they tend to be more expensive than unfurnished apartments, move-in ready, fully-furnished rentals with flexible lease terms are ideal for those who are waiting to purchase a home. Furthermore, if the new job or location does not work out, you are not stuck with a mortgage or breaking a lease and losing your deposit.
In addition, short-term rental properties, such as those at Hosted Quarters, very often have the following taken care of: utility management, updated kitchen appliances, complete tabletop and serveware, refrigerator stocking upon move-in, newspaper service, lawn care, snow removal, and even maid service upon request. These services and amenities can go a long way in helping you adjust to a new life in a new location.
