When Does A Furnished Apartment Make More Sense?

Stack of moving boxes and blonde woman with head in hands, stressedSometimes life is funny. One minute you’re gliding through your daily routine and then all of a sudden…Wham! You are hit with something new and/or unexpected. Ferris Bueller said it best when observing, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

That’s what happens for many people seeking a new apartment. There is more to it than simply walking into the first community you see and signing a lease. In fact, for many, the first step is looking around and asking about the things that go inside the apartment. And, if you fall within any of these groups, maybe the first thing you should ask the leasing professional in front of you is, “Does this apartment come furnished?”

Relocating Business Professional

Your job is sending you someplace new for the next 6 to 12 months. Could be shorter, could be longer. The problem is that you have a house full of stuff that you can’t take with you. And, since your family is staying put and you’ll be traveling back and forth, even pieces of your existing place would be tough to bring along. Finding a furnished apartment means that you can have all the luxuries of home while you are away. You can even lease a unit that has all of your electronics and housewares included. Why buy something only to hassle with trying to sell it on Craigslist in a few months? Finding a furnished place saves both time and money.

Going Through a Separation

A breakup or divorce is something no one wants to face, but the reality is, they happen. While finding an apartment is the first concern, the next needs to be what happens to the decor and items that are in the previous home. It can take weeks and sometimes months to agree on the division of belongings. At the same time, you still have a life to lead, work to get done, and other daily responsibilities to consider. It is much simpler to find a furnished apartment than to get stuck in a tug-of-war with your ex. That way, you can focus on getting yourself over this hump in life!

Being a Student or an Intern

On almost every university campus across the nation, first-year freshmen are required to live on campus. And, although the digs of on-campus living may be spartan at times, they almost always come with the items that you need inside your space. Once you transition into off-campus housing, many of the options you have available will also be fully furnished. Finances are incredibly tight for students and, since many don’t have jobs, the meager living funds from student loans don’t tend to leave much wiggle room for purchasing the things you need or want. Furnished apartments are surprisingly affordable for students, especially when you factor in the costs of moving.

These are just three of the many different groups of people who know that having a furnished apartment can make life easier, save money, and lead to greater success. So, when you seek your next apartment, be sure to ask if they offer a fully-furnished option.
