So you want to set up your own Dallas corporate apartment?5.19.17
You’ve decided that you need a short term rental for your stay in Dallas and you don’t want to pay the high prices that you see listed for most corporate housing you’ve found online. So you set out to save some money and do it yourself…
Well, from what we have seen, it usually doesn’t end up saving any money at all (it often actually costs a lot more) and it definitely ends up taking excessive amounts of time to put everything together.
Let’s look it over. For a typical furnished apartment in Dallas, you’re looking at needing:
- A couch and loveseat set
- A 42 inch HD TV
- A coffee table and two end tables
- A dining set with four chairs
- A king bedroom set complete with two nightstands, a dresser, and a headboard / footboard
- All kitchenware and cookware
- WIFI and cable TV service
- Electric service
- And a short term lease that won’t obligate you to stay for 6-12 months like most standard leases
To get all of that together you are going to either need to buy furniture or rent furniture. Neither of which is cheap, as you will quickly find with a few phone calls to furniture rental companies.
Next you are going to have to spend wasted time on the phone, calling to set up services for the apartment and spend time meeting the installation technicians as well as paying install fees. Lastly, nearly all apartment complexes charge significant markups for short term leases.
In the end, when it comes to corporate housing, do-it-yourselfers, end up costing themselves a tremendous amount of extra money and a huge headache.
