Furnished Leasing & Management

While many agents avoid furnished lets, we welcome them with open arms! Furnished leasing doesn’t just provide convenience for renters to move in with only their suitcases. It also makes your investment property a more attractive option in a competitive Melbourne marketplace.

At Living Melbourne, we can provide sound advice on your furnished let options. Our extensive experience in dealing with high-end corporate lets has given us extensive knowledge of all aspects of leasing & managing furnished property successfully.

While furnished apartments are often related to short lets, many corporate clients are also seeking long-term furnished rentals. We have built strong relationships with relocation agents who seek a diverse range of furnished properties for their clients.

But, you should also know that having a fully furnished property does not guarantee you will achieve a higher rent. There are many contributing factors which contribute to attaining increased rent. These include the property location, time of the year and also the standard in which the property has been furnished.

Are you considering leasing your property as furnished or would like some sound advice on your furnished leasing options?
