Furnished Rentals Atlanta
Many people come to Atlanta for a shorter stay or simply don’t want the hassle of adding shopping for furnishings on top of a stressful relocation, and as such the competition for furnished apartments in the city is high in spite of the number of apartments. As a result of this, rent in these apartments is on average 10 - 20% more than unfurnished places – more still if utilities are to be included. If you find a furnished apartment that you like – we advise to move quickly and professionally – be flexible in where you want to base yourself and show the landlord why you deserve the apartment over the other applicants.
