Apartment rental Seattle is a popular choice in particular among business travelers who made need a place to stay for an extended amount of time in Seattle but who are not actually moving to the city and would rather find a rental home. Seattle luxury apartments in the downtown area are a great choice, and many Seattle furnished apartments offer the cozy feeling of home without having to worry about furnishing an apartment yourself for a shorter stay.
One popular way to find an apartment rental Seattle for travelers who may come to Seattle at times but not to stay is the short term lease program, which works somewhat like a timeshare. Short Term Suites is one such company offering this sort of Seattle luxury apartment rental program. Renters are required to rent their Seattle furnished apartments for a minimum 30 days, and after that are allowed to reserve their time at the apartment on a need-basis. After the initial 30 days, per-night rates are pro-rated, so you are only charged for your apartment rental Seattle on the nights you actually stay there.
Another way to find Seattle furnished apartments is by renting from a private owner. Networking through various websites dedicated to this kind of rental agreement is the best way to go. Often, owners are looking to rent out properties they may own but do not live in and have purchased as an investment. This can sometimes be a great way to find a lower price on Seattle furnished apartments. If you do choose to go through a private owner, however, be sure you carefully all signed documents, and be aware of your responsibilities when renting an apartment for a shorter stay in Washington State.
The price range for a Seattle luxury apartment can vary, but expect prices to start in the $1000 per month range for a small one-bedroom or studio apartment downtown. Prices can be as high as $3000 per month if you are really looking for ultimate luxury and multiple bedrooms. If your apartment is part of a larger apartment building in the downtown area, you will find that many downtown properties come with some extra amenities to justify the higher price. Rooftop swimming pools, small in-house movie theatres, complimentary dry-cleaning and on-site tanning beds are just a few of the amenities renter’s can expect from luxury apartments. For the most part, these high-end amenities are concentrated in the downtown area, particularly in the neighborhood known as Belltown, or in the Eastlake neighborhood which is on the east side of Lake Union near downtown Seattle.
