Why Rent a Furnished Apartment?

Why Rent a Furnished Apartment?

While looking at apartment homes you may have seen the option to rent a furnished apartment. You might be wondering why someone would pick that option. Furnished apartments can be a very cost-effective and convenient option for many folks. There are plenty of reasons to rent a furnished apartment, here’s just a few of them.

You Save on Moving Expenses

When you are moving, one of the biggest expenses is paying for a moving truck, packing supplies and movers. Moving large pieces of furniture is costly and frankly, kind of a pain. Now imagine you just have to move your personal things. You’ve got a few boxes and some suitcases and you’re on your way. Moving into a furnished apartment means you don’t have to move couches and beds and other big pieces or pay for the moving fees associated with owning such items.

It’s Perfect for Short Term Leases

Furnished apartments aren’t just convenient, sometimes they are a necessity. If you’re going to be living somewhere for a short period of time like a couple months or just a couple years it can be a huge hassle to move all your furniture or buy new furniture you will have to get rid of when you move again. Having a furnished apartment is a great way to feel completely at home no matter how long your lease is.

You Don’t Need to Worry About Furniture

Sometimes you move into a new apartment and your furniture doesn’t fit. Maybe your couch is the wrong size or you don’t have enough furniture to fill the place. By renting a furnished apartment you skip the hassle. You know the furniture fits, you know it looks great and you don’t have to worry about getting new stuff.

It’s Move in Ready

Unpacking after a move is cumbersome, but what if you just had to unpack a few boxes? That sounds like a dream doesn’t it? Well in a furnished apartment it’s ready! You just unpack your personal items and you’re good to go! With a furnished apartment you will save time and the headache of navigating piles of boxes and furniture in rooms that don’t belong.

How to Pick the Right Apartment for You

How to Pick the Right Apartment for You

Finding the perfect apartment can be a little tricky, but it can also be a lot of fun. While apartment hunting, you get to look at different locations, floor plans, unit sizes and layouts. Here are some tips to make your next apartment hunt go a little smoother so that hopefully you can find the place that feels like home. 

Price – Budget is probably the number one thing to take into consideration when renting an apartment. You need to be able to comfortably afford your rent and expenses, so setting a budget and sticking to it will ensure you have money left over for the fun things in life. 

Location, Location, Location – One of the most important factors when picking an apartment is the location. Whether you want to be close to shopping and dining, work, school, friends or family it’s key to pick the right spot. Also, look at the atmosphere of the area. Maybe you like to be right in the hustle and bustle of things, or maybe you want to live in a more quiet secluded area. Either way, it’s important to consider. 

Size Matters – Choosing the right size apartment is very important. Size often dictates price, and if you are needing a specific unit size you will need to make sure the communities you’re looking at offer it. Some other things to take into consideration are inside your unit, like bedroom size, or the inclusion of walk-in closets or double sinks. 

Amenities – These perks are built right into the cost of your rent, so it’s important to find ones you’ll actually use. If having a pool is important to you then look for a community with a professionally maintained pool. If you have a pet you’ll want to make sure your community is pet friendly and maybe you even want to tour ones with on-site dog parks. Whatever your amenity desires are it’s good to check them out before filling out an application. 

Community – Renting an apartment means you’re becoming part of a community. Your community is made up of your neighbors on all sides. Make sure you feel comfortable in this new community and it’s a place you can thrive and grow. Many apartment communities offer things like resident events and socials to help you get to know your neighbors better. Who knows your new best friend might be right next door. 

No matter what you’re looking for, Tonsmeire Properties has it. With rental apartments in Daphne, Fairhope, Foley and Madison we’ve got a place you can call home. Give us a call today to start touring our beautiful properties and find the right fit for you.

How to Make a Rental House a Home

How to Make a Rental House a Home

You’ve finally made the step to rent a house, which means it’s time to put a stamp of your own to make it home. Even if you are just renting, that does not mean your home can’t be the home of your dreams! There are so many unique ways to add a touch of your own personal style to every part of your home. From pops of color to furniture that opens up a room, we’re sure there are design elements and options you’ll love for your space.

Fill your home with things you love

It’s true when they say “Home is where the heart is” especially when you fill your home with the things you love! Whether that’s beautiful artwork, crafts or items that were gifted or brought back from a trip, surrounding yourself with objects you treasure can turn an ordinary space into an elaborate home you love just as much!

Living things for a living space

Having indoor house plants can change the atmosphere of a home almost instantly! There’s just something about having a little piece of nature in your space to enhance the overall feeling and appearance of your home. Not only do house plants look great, but they often have physical health benefits, too. Studies have shown houseplants can boost your mood, productivity and creativity all while helping reduce stress and absorbing toxins in our air. 

Light up your space

Lighting is a simple, yet effective, way to change the atmosphere of a room and your home. Luckily, there are so many unique designs and styles to change the dynamic of your space. Strategically placed floor lamps, free-standing lights and ceiling fan lights will transform your home into a stylish and comfortable abode.

Add color to bring your home to life

Color is a constructive way to personalize your home to your style. Start with how you want your home to feel. Do you want to achieve a calming and relaxed atmosphere in your home? Aim towards adding blues and grays. Do you want to achieve a minimalistic and polished look to your home? Add touches of neutral colors like shades of white and beige. No matter what colors you love, choosing colors that cater to your style is sure to turn a house into a home.

Multi-functioning furniture

A sure way to spice up your rental home is by adding furniture that fits your needs. Depending on how much space you have, utilizing multi-functioning furniture could benefit your space and storage needs. Sleek sofa beds or folding dining tables and chairs can be practical, useful and interchanged on a daily basis. Consider shopping functionality over style next time you need a new piece of furniture!

Should I Rent a House or an Apartment?

Should I Rent a House or an Apartment?

When deciding to rent there can be a lot of options. One of the biggest decisions is should you rent a house or an apartment. The two may seem awfully similar and maybe you aren’t sure how to choose one or the other. Here are some things to consider that will help you if you’re trying to decide between renting a house or renting an apartment

How Much Space Do You Need? 

One of the big things to consider when weighing your options is how much space you will need. You should consider how many bedrooms you will need as well as how much extra space you will need or want for things like an office, nursery, playroom, workout space or guest room. Apartments traditionally are smaller floor plans so if 1-2 bedrooms is what you’re looking for then that might be your best option. If you need more space then you might want to consider a rental house

What Amenities/Perks Do You Want? 

Apartments come with a host of amenities built into your rent. Things like pools, fitness centers and dog parks are right at the tip of your fingers. It’s one of the biggest perks of renting. Luckily there are also rental homes that have communities filled with amenities so you don’t necessarily have to decide. Sometimes houses do have other perks like attached garages and fenced lawns. If you prefer to be off the ground floor or have a balcony then renting an apartment is perfect for you.

Is Accessibility a Concern? 

Both rental houses and rental apartments can be extremely accessible however you will find more accessibility in most houses. Maybe you need a ground floor home because you cannot maneuver stairs, maybe you need an attached garage because you have little ones or maybe you simply want to make life easier when you move by not dealing with stairs. Whatever the reason, accessibility is something to consider.
