When you look at housing options, you have to remember that furniture is usually not included with the apartment or home. If you are looking for temporary housing, it may not be worth your time, effort or money to furnish the home. A way to get around this is to rent a short-term furnished room, apartment or house. There are several steps you can take to find the perfect accommodations.
Consider Corporate Housing. Corporate housing can include apartments, homes or condominiums that have been furnished and are meant for a month to several months stay. They typically come furnished with all of the amenities you would find in your own home including pots and pans, utensils and linens. Corporatehousing.com helps those who are looking for short-term furnished housing find corporate housing all over the United States. Simply select the area you wish to find your housing in and wait for the results to come up.
Search Craigslist.org. Many people are willing to rent their apartments or homes on a month to month basis. Typically these month to month leases come fully furnished for the convenience of both the tenant and the owner. Craigslist.org allows users to search for housing in their area. Either scan each advertisement in the "housing" section of your desired city or search the words "short-term" and "furnished" to expedite the process. If you are looking for housing for only a few days or a few weeks, searching the vacation rentals section of craigslist may be a better option for you.
Consider Extended Stay hotels or motels. Extended stay hotels or motels come fully furnished and are intended for short-term stays. Extended stay hotels do not require you to sign a lease and many even allow you to bring your pet. They are typically cheaper than a regular hotel and include fully furnished kitchens or kitchenettes. Visit Extendedstayhotels.com to find an extended stay hotel in your desired area.
