For corporate executives on temporary assignment, homeowners who are undergoing renovations, or people whose lives are in transition and in need of a short-term rental, furnished apartments are ideal.
Move with ease.
Imagine not having to move large pieces of furniture up a flight of stairs or worry about scuffing floors or chipping the paint. Almost everything you'll need is already there in a furnished apartment. Just bring whatever makes you feel comfortable and move right in!
No need to arrange for movers and coordinate moving dates. Simply pick a day and time that’s convenient for you and arrive to a completely furnished home complete with amenities!
Furnished apartments usually offer shorter lease terms, set around your own personal schedule.
Cross country or international?
Those traveling across the country or internationally for a certain period of time won't have to move, purchase, or rent large pieces of furniture. Furnished apartments provide the perfect solution.
Of course, there are some limitations when moving into a fully furnished space. First, you don’t have the ability to choose your décor or bring any large items into the apartment. Second, since the furnishings belong to the landlord, security deposits and rent may be a little higher to compensate for any wear and tear. Third, furnished apartments are less common than unfurnished, so you may not have a wide variety of locations available to you.
Luckily, near large cities like New York, there are many options available for short-term renters. Hosted Quarters, for example, offers furnished apartments in the towns of Maplewood, Summit, and Short Hills, New Jersey--all conveniently close to NYC via mid-town direct trains.
