Ask these 5 Questions before Signing up for Furnished Corporate Housing

We all understand that we get what we pay for. We just need to ask the right questions to ensure we get full value for our money. When considering leasing a furnished apartment, ask the agent these questions:

  1. Are the furnishings included in the rental price? Some companies lure you in with rental rates for their unfurnished places and then tack on furniture rental. When you choose a fully furnished apartment from Corporate Housing Experts, you pay one fee each month that covers both the residence and the furniture within.
  2. What type of furniture is included? Believe it or not, the definition of “furnished” can be fluid. For some, it means a couple of end tables, a couch, a bed, and not much else. For Corporate Housing Experts, it means much more. Rent as much or as little furniture as you need. It’s up to you.
  3. Do I have to pay an extra security deposit for furniture? It is possible there is a furniture deposit that is separate from your apartment deposit. This depends on the company and their practices.
  4. What, if any, utilities are included in the rent? Sometimes water, electricity, and the internet are included in your furnished apartment—other times they’re not. Knowing what your housing company offers helps you determine if you need to make any additional phone calls to set up utilities. We believe your apartment should be move-in ready, so we have all the services available to go when you turn the key in the lock.
  5. Can I choose furnishings for my new apartment? Some companies offer different packages while others let you pick and choose what you want. For example, we give you customizable furniture and housewares packages. Each package can include standard furniture and others leave no detail out. Think shower curtains and a broom and dustpan.
