To rent a furnished apartment, look at multiple resources, including online advertisements, corporate housing websites and general apartment listing websites; Apartment Guide, CorporateHousing.com, Rent.com and Craigslist are good places to start searching. Most furnished apartments are listed as short-term rentals.
Apartment Guide is a general apartment rental website, but one that often lists furnished apartments; the site contains many listings and makes it easy to filter results. When looking for an apartment, choose the desired location and select preferences. There is a check box for furnished apartments. Select that and other preferred amenities to find a list of available apartments for rent.
For business professionals looking for a short-term, furnished rental, CorporateHousing.com is a good option. The site caters to business travelers who are only in town for a short time and would rather spend their time in an apartment as opposed to living in a hotel.
Before renting a furnished apartment, find out about all fees included. Some landlords require an additional security deposit to provide extra protection for the furnishings in the home. They might also require an additional fee for any pets in the space. Agents who help find such apartments usually request a fee as well.
