Why buy, when you can rent?

Moved into a new house…. Moving into a new city? Worried about how you would take all your furnitures & appliances along with you?

This is a very common worry for working professionals who keep moving in different cities for work. A research has found that young workforce between age of 25 – 35 years keep shifting their base every 2 years. Once we move to a new city, we look for an affordable semi/fully furnished accommodations. However, in Tier 1 & Tier 2 cities, the word ‘affordable’ is very perspective based. So, I suggest to get an unfurnished accommodation for rent in a steal deal and furnish it according to your need.

You might question me that it buying new furnitures & appliances would again jack up the prices and so would getting them shifted from other cities. My article today is about curbing out such problems. Luckily, my shifting to a new place last February, helped me get more insights which I thought to share with you.

Start going Rental… Sounds little overwhelming? Well the concept of rental might be old, however many startups have come up with innovations to it making it easier and affordable. I will try to dissect few them and would love to hear from you, if you have had any experiences in the comment section below.
