What to look for when renting an apartment for a short period of time
If you are about to go to a business trip that will last a few weeks or up to a few months, a hotel room will not be the best choice from a financial standpoint. To this extent, you will probably have to rent an apartment and this is what you need to look for in order to make a good decision:
Look for something furnished
If you are not planning to stay that long, you will probably not be interested in making any type of investments in furniture. This is why it would be best to look for something that already has everything you need to live comfortably for a short period of time. You will find plenty of Calgary furnished rentals to choose from, so take your time when viewing various apartments to make sure you have everything you need.
Proximity from work
The closer the apartment building is of your office, the easier it will be for you to get there every day. You may not have a company car at your disposal, so you should look for an apartment building that is close to a public transport station or within walking distance of your office in case you would rather explore the city a little bit on your way to work or after hours.
If you are planning to rent a car, you should make sure the apartment you are about to rent either comes with a parking space or has a parking lot nearby where you can leave your car while you are at home. This way you will not have to worry about finding a parking space every day or give up the idea of renting a car altogether.
Ask whether or not utilities are included
This is a pretty important question, because you can make an idea regarding the renting costs. This way you will know if there are any additional costs that you will have to take care of or if the price you pay for your rent is the final one.
All in all, these are aspects you need to look for whenever you want to rent an apartment for a short period of time, as they will guide you to making a good decision. Even if you may not plan to spend a long time in that apartment, there is no reason why you should not feel comfortable throughout your stay.
