Fortunately, you can find them if you know where to look. As experts in our field with many years of experience under our belts, we know exactly where to look.
Rather than keep it to ourselves, we think it’s only fair we share the goodness with you.
What follows is a comprehensive list of websites where you can find good quality furnished apartments with month-to-month leases.
We rate the website on ease of use, accessibility and the features you would look for on a housing provider site.
BLU CORPORATE HOUSING
It’s only right that we begin our list with our own website. Blu Corporate Housing has access to over 50,000 properties across the entire United States. Each represents excellent value and provides exceptional quality accommodation with month-to-month leases.
We also offer dedicated account management, a dedicated team of account staff and regular quality checks on properties.
Our website is simple and to the point. You can browse cities, contact us for more information and find out everything you need.
Pros: Extensive range of corporate housing across most areas of the country. Use the simple email inquiry form or browse cities for properties as required.
Cons: No search option on the website. Email inquiries are answered quickly though!
Shorttermhousing.com also provides furnished apartments with month-to-month leases. They have access to over 30,000 properties in 6,000 cities across the country, so there’s sure to be something where you need to stay. Prices are keen too, which is a definite bonus.
The website is modern, loads fast and is a pleasure to use. It provides accessible language and a browse option for cities.
Pros: Engaging website, works with many types of potential client and excellent feedback from previous clients.
Cons: Another website without search. Fortunately, email inquiry and browsing is simple.
Fox Corporate Housing has a light and bright website, offering access to thousands of corporate rentals across the country. The company has a national presence, but their main offerings are in Texas where the company is based.
Overall, they offer a large number of furnished apartments with month-to-month leases, which is why we like them.
Pros: Wide selection of properties and property types. The City Search function on the website is also a neat idea even if it doesn’t include all the cities the company covers.
Cons: Website is slow, is insecure (doesn’t use HTTPS) and has an awkward layout in places. The service is supposed to be very good though!
Executive Corporate Housing has a very professional-looking website. The company is also approachable and are willing to work with anyone who needs to rent a furnished apartment with a month-to-month lease.
With over 60,000 properties to choose from you won’t be short of choice either.
Pros: Engaging website, dedicated team available via phone or email form, competitive prices, informative property listings.
Cons: A search function might be nice.
Blueground offers an engaging website with a bright and breezy feel. There’s a lot to like about the layout and feel of pages, as well as the city selector feature at the top.
The company offers corporate housing across the country and a few international destinations, ideal if you need to send staff further afield.
Pros: Professional-looking website with a neat city selector feature. Website is engaging and encourages you to explore.
Cons: Language on the website is a little overenthusiastic and comes across more as a sales pitch than others in this list. This erodes confidence, or at least it did with us.
2nd Address is a smaller furnished apartment provider but delivers a high-quality experience. It also has a search option, which makes it very easy to search the 3,500 or so furnished apartments they have on their books.
While fewer than some, the quality is equal so there are no downsides to using them.
Pros: Search function on the website, clear and accessible language explains everything.
Cons: Fewer properties than many others in this list.
Furnished Finder is more a search engine than housing provider, which is fine. Rather than handle everything for you, the website will put you in touch with the owner or management company and you’ll need to do the rest.
The website works well and presents a simple search function front and center. The website has access to 70,000 properties across the country.
Pros: Simple navigation, fast loading and a search engine front and center. The site also lists hotels and other resources too.
Cons: It’s a search engine only. Where Blu manages the entire rental, Furnished Finder just puts you in contact with the owner.
While technically not a provider of the best furnished apartments with month-to-month leases, it does list accommodation. We all know Craigslist. Love it or hate it, the site provides a wealth of opportunities depending on what you’re looking for.
If you don’t mind putting the work in, you can usually find accommodation in almost every city listed.
Pros: Wide scope with a huge selection of properties and property types.
Cons: Craigslist is the wild west and you’ll have to do everything yourself, including verifying the provider.
Facebook Marketplace is another potential source of furnished accommodation. But, like Craigslist, is somewhere you’ll need to tread carefully in order to avoid the scammers and rogue landlords.
That said, once you have performed your due diligence, it’s entirely possible to secure some great value accommodation.
Pros: Global reach with thousands of property listings across the world. Facebook is also universal, used by most people.
Cons: Due diligence is going to be essential if you’re to deliver the quality of accommodation you need. Plus, it’s all down to you again to manage.
Those are what we consider the websites that can help you find the best furnished apartments with month-to-month leases.
Each has its pros and cons, but can deliver the accommodation you’re looking for.
Of all of these, we would recommend the websites that manage the entire booking for you. It’s easier, requires less time and effort on your part and can deliver a superior experience as a result.
Those are the websites we would use! What about you?
