Benefits of Furnished Apartments


Most professionals who travel for business prefer to lease furnished apartments as opposed to other short-term alternatives such as hotels accommodations for several of reasons. The main reason of course is professionals are on temporary assignments and don’t have many options to start with. However this also doesn’t mean business travelers should sacrifice the comfort and convenience of a home away from home and elect to stay in a cramped hotel.

Corporate apartments come fully stocked with all the basic necessities an individual or family needs to start living from the very first day. The items a person can expect are tables, couches, coffee tables, chairs, beds, linen, kitchen appliances, utensils, tableware, pots and pans, containers and anything a normal person needs to walk in a new environment and start living like home.

Leasing furnished apartments for a short term period can offer many benefits as compared to the hotel accomodation. Renting a hotel room is usually more expensive. Many cities have limits on how long a person can reside in a hotel. Hotels are usually one room, some have an adjoining room with a sitting area if its a nicer hotel. These hotel rooms do not have the home away from home feel or offer the amenities travel nurses are used to when living at home. There generally are no cooking facilities in hotel rooms. Renting a furnished apartment with all of the amenities such as a full size kitchen, a bedroom, a living room stocked with all the necessities is much more comfortable for business people, investors, expatriate e.t.c and far less expensive too.

The most problematic part of being away from home is that nothing is available when you need it. Your house is stocked with everything you need and is placed in a convenient location for use. A sewing needle or pair scissors is nowhere to be found in a hotel room, the rooms are way too small and confining for anything but sleeping. There is very little privacy because there is a room right next door and you always enter through a lobby. When leasing a furnished apartment these issues don’t exist. A furnished apartment is set up just like a normal house or apartment. There is a living room, bedroom, full size kitchen stocked with all the necessities a travel nurse would need.

The beauty of renting an extended stay apartment or furnished apartment is that it is very simple. All of the details are worked out by the property agent; all you have to do is say what your needs are and everything is supplied. The only detail you need to focus on is the contracting specifics and ensuring you’ve made a good selection with a caring provider. Payment is a simple process too; many locations will allow you to use a credit card as a security deposit so there is no need to provide a lot of upfront cash.
