Out and about today for a client, I came across a unit that's likely to sell for between $520-540K realistically. A similar unit in the same building (same size and similar outlook) is currently being advertised for rent fully furnished for a whopping $900 a week! This got me thinking..... naturally I know there's a huge demand for furnished rentals in some parts of major cities, especially for short term executives and relocating individuals/families. Prices and type of accommodation range from your cheap bedsit type places inner city (think backpacker style) through to whiz bang executive roomy apartments with all the mod cons, overlooking water. Has anyone here had any success with furnished rentals in major cities, and, if so, how did their vacancy rate compare to a more permanent rental unfurnished? How did you go about managing, advertising etc?
