There are many reasons as to why you might want to rent a furnished apartment in New York City including; extended business trips, visiting the city for leisure, and even for living purposes. Whatever your reason for needed a place to rent in NYC, it’s important to choose wisely so that your stay - however long - is as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible. As you may already be aware, some accommodation in NYC is less than acceptable, so take a look at these tips to keep in mind when looking for a furnished apartment in New York City.

Think about your lifestyle

A fatal mistake that many people make when looking for an apartment in NYC is forgetting to think about their lifestyle. You need to take into consideration factors such as:

Whether you’ve got a pet

What kind of internet service you’ll need

How large you’ll need your apartment to be

If you’ll need to use a laundry service

Getting to locations such as the gym

What amenities are close by such as schools, shops, and even libraries

How easy the apartment is to access if you or a family member struggles with mobility

Having a doorman to collect mail for you and sign for packages

Thinking about these kinds of factors before viewing apartments will help you choose the right accommodation for you. Did you know that you can rent furnished apartments that allow pets and have services such as a laundry service, a gym and, of course, a doorman. Finding an apartment that can offer these kinds of services will make your life much easier in the long run. After all, New York is a busy city that’s easy to lose your way around!

Think about the view

If you’re going to be working from your apartment, or at least spending a considerable amount of time in your apartment, then it’s important to think about what kind of view you’ll have over the city. Did you know that the view outside of your window (wherever you live) can greatly affect your mental health? Not only that, if you are going to be working from home then having a scenic view will help promote inspiration. 

Take commuting into consideration

As mentioned earlier, New York is a very busy city and as you’re probably already aware, commuting can become an issue if not planned out properly. If you’re going to need to travel multiple times a week to get to work, it’s important to think about how far you’ll have to commute, how you’re going to commute, and also how long it will take you to get to your destination. While a place of work shouldn’t totally dictate where you live, if the cons outweigh the pros it might be worth thinking about moving closer to your destination.

Look at area statistics

Like pretty much anywhere in the world, there are going to be neighbourhoods with increased crime rates and, of course, it’s a good idea to avoid these areas when looking for an apartment to rent. Do your research before booking any viewings so that you can be sure you’re as safe as possible in your new home. It’s especially important to do your research when living in New York city because crime rates are considerably higher than many other cities around the world. You should also look at statistics for noise levels at night and anything else that might affect your day to day life.

Tour properties in person

Thanks to the use of technology you’re now able to view properties completely online using video and imaging technology. While this might be super convenient for you (especially if you’re moving from another state or country), it’s a good idea to tour all of the properties that you’re considering in person. The problem with video and images is that it’s easy for a realtor to hide problems that there might be with the apartment. Be sure to visit each prospective apartment so you can avoid this problem.

As you can see, there are quite a few things to think about when choosing furnished apartments (or any property, for that matter). Take these tips into consideration and you’ll find that your property search is much easier, and without disappointment!
