Summer is a great time to suspend your day-to-day reality in favor of a little more adventure. Many people take the summer season to travel, study, or work in another state or country. If you’re one of these people, you might want to sublet your apartment.
Your mundane is someone else’s adventure, so while New Yorkers like you might be shuffling off to a teaching assignment in Beijing or a writing program in Dublin, or even just going back to the West Coast on break from school, plenty of people around the country- and world!- are packing their bags for a summer adventure in New York City. If you’re in school, you may also find that many of your fellow students are looking for local summer housing.
Of course collecting rent and having your apartment occupied is a no-brainer, but what about dealing with all of your furniture? Leave it and you can rent that out too! Renting your furniture as part of the sublet deal is an easy and convenient way to make a little extra money while you’re away for the summer, and furnished spaces are an attractive option for new or temporary New Yorkers.
We love furnished listings at DitchTheSpace.com. It’s free to list your space, and our prospective tenants are qualified, responsible folks– exactly the sort of people you want in your apartment.
Is that enough incentive to overcome your lingering doubts about what to do this summer? Go on, get out there! Rent your place furnished, and you might even recoup the cost of your plane tickets!
