Opt for a Semi-furnished Rental: Apartments, Condos and Lofts in Montreal

Renting an apartment, a condo, or a semi-furnished loft is an option for anyone wishing to invest in an environment that resembles them.

What is a Semi-furnished Rental?

Unlike the furnished rental, a semi-furnished apartment does not include all items essential to your daily activities. That is why it is necessary to proceed with vigilance by considering all available options and comparing them to your housing needs.

As a general rule, renting an apartment, a condo, or a semi-furnished loft implies that you will have to think of several things once you move in. For example, by renting a semi-furnished unit, you will have five household appliances (refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, washer and dryer). However, you will have to calculate additional costs to cover everyday services (electricity, heating, Internet, etc.).

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Semi-furnished Rentals

In such a context, the longer you'll stay in the apartment, the more profitable your financial investment will be. This is why a semi-furnished rental, although transitory, is usually considered for longer stays.

The main advantage resides in the freedom you'll get arranging and decorating your new home to your taste. 

However, the expenses incurred by renting a semi-furnished apartment are considerable and must be budgeted. You'll also have to consider the total cost of monthly services.  Your arrival may also be more stressful, as you will have to shop for furniture and accessories. And finally, at the end of your stay, you will have to decide whether to sell what you acquired, or plan to move your furniture to your new home.
