Tips For Finding Furnished Rooms For Rent

Staff Writer · Feb 9, 2011

If you’re looking for furnished rooms for rent you have to keep a few things in mind so that you find yourself a good place to live, without blowing your budget. The easiest way to find furnished rooms for rent is to look up the Internet. There are several websites that help you find accommodation in the state or town of your choice. You must make sure you narrow down your search options so that you get search results that best match the kind of accommodation you’re looking for.

Searching for Furnished Rooms to Rent

You could look up websites like ForRent.com, ApartmentFinder or Rent.com to find furnished apartments or rooms that are vacant. Alternatively look up craigslist.org to find rooms that are up for lease. Apart from researching the Internet, you can look through your local newspaper (under the classifieds section) to find rooms in that particular area. There may be several people looking for roommates to occupy other rooms that are available in their apartments.

Things to Remember Before Taking a Furnished Room

You should make sure that you carefully inspect the apartment or the rooms that are available for lease. Find out more about the type of furnishings that are available and if they’re in proper working order. Read the terms and conditions of the rental contract carefully and try to negotiate the cost of the rental.

If you have to move into an apartment with another roommate you should try to sign a roommate prenup as this will protect your rights and interests in the future.

If you have good credit score you may not have to pay a deposit amount to the landlord or the rental company. Also find out what’s included in the rent you pay. While some landlords include utilities, others may not. Before moving in to the furnished room or signing the contract it would be beneficial to read online reviews about the place you’re moving into. This will also keep you aware of any safety issues that may arise during your stay at the apartment.
