Choosing Between a Serviced and Regular Apartment for A Long-Term Stay

July 8, 2016

Moving to a new city because of your job? Changing houses and looking for accommodation in the meantime? Or are you simply looking for a no-hassle apartment that you can move into immediately? In this day in age, life changes might force you to act quickly and change homes in a short span of time. Renting a regular apartment can be a very time-consuming and tedious experience, causing an unnecessary amount of stress. A serviced apartment, on the other hand, will allow you to find stability and security in your new environment, allowing you to focus on things that are more important. 

Here are some of the advantages of renting a serviced apartment versus a regular apartment, even when you are planning a long-term stay:

No frills move-in


One of the biggest advantages of renting a serviced apartment is that you'll be able to move in to your new home within the space of a few days. Moving into a regular apartment can take weeks -- you might have to wait for the old tenant to move out or for the landlord to finish cleaning. This might mean booking a hotel room until your apartment is ready, which is another unnecessary complication in what could be a smooth move. When moving to Sheffield, Homely Apartments will be able to move you into your new place as soon as you sign the rent agreement. All of the available apartments in our catalogue are fully equipped and ready for a new tenant, allowing you to move in as soon as you arrive in the city.

Flexible length of stay


Not sure how long you'll be staying? No problem! Serviced apartments can offer flexibility in terms of your length of stay, while regular apartments might require you to sign a tenancy agreement and agree to a minimum stay of 6 months (or more). This can significantly limit your rental options or force you to risk paying for days or even months that you won't be living in the apartment. Homely Apartments will make sure that you are not paying for a day more than your intended stay in the apartment -- our flexible living options are able to accommodate changes in your plans and give you peace of mind when renting your new apartment.

Fully-furnished accommodation


A huge advantage of renting a serviced apartment is that it is fully furnished from top to bottom. Regular apartments range from semi-furnished to non-furnished meaning you will end up spending weeks equipping your apartment with household products ranging from kitchenware to bedding, as well as unnecessarily spending money on items that you will never need again. This makes little sense if your intended stay is only a few months long. Homely Apartments has your comfort in mind and has equipped all apartments with living essentials, allowing you to feel right at home from day 1. 

Neighbourhood

 

 
Deciding where to live can be the hardest part of moving to a new city. You might find a fantastic apartment with everything you need, but how well connected is it to the rest of the city? Is it safe? Is it in a touristy or a local neighbourhood? These are just some of the questions that will be going through your head as you are making a decision. Homely Apartments offers a range of serviced apartments that have been especially selected for their locations -- they are all situated in central Sheffield and boast exceptionally safe living conditions -- allowing you to think about one thing less when choosing a place to live. 

Housekeeping 


An added advantage of staying in one of our serviced apartments is the free weekly housekeeping and maid service. No matter how long you stay, this service will help keep your apartment stay clean and tidy and assist you in avoiding the chaos of moving and unpacking that can overcrowd your new space. On the whole, staying in a serviced apartment will give you a stress-free and upscale experience, making each day in your new apartment feel luxurious. Homely Apartments are always at your disposal -- do not hesitate to contact us for a consultation or advice regarding your new serviced apartment!
