We used to offer short term furnished accommodation rentals through MoveToPerth. From time to time we received enquiries from people who gave a maximum budget way below the costs of our advertised properties. We took the time to explain to them the reason for prices being as they were and subsequently matched them with a property which they have been happy with. As a result we have produced this short guide to explain what you should expect to pay and why:
Sort term fully equipped rental properties vary greatly in price. Many things determine this: location, property size, facilities, furnishings and what'sincluded.
The majority of homes that are offered for short term let are fully-furnished and fully equipped. This means that you will find everything from a lounge suite to a garlic press in your home:
You will have space and privacy for your whole family.
You will have the convenience of a fully equipped laundry with washing machine, iron and ironing board.
You will have a kitchen equipped as well as most home kitchens.
You will have separate lounge rooms so the adults and children can have their own space.
Some have gardens,
Some have swimming pools,
All have owners who have taken pride in their rental homes. Taking the time to furnish them well and providing all the things you need to make your stay there comfortable and enjoyable. You also have included in the price all your utility bills unless stated differently in the home description.
All these things don’t come cheap. The owner of your home will have to pay electricity, gas, council rates, water, and insurance premiums for the home - whether someone is staying there or not. Homes with gardens will have garden maintenance, if there is a pool then pool maintenance and chemicals to ensure your safety. If the home has a monitored alarm system that also is paid by the owner. The homes have to be cleaned from top to bottom between each arrival to ensure everything is perfect. There is also the general maintenance inside and out of the property to keep the home looking and feeling it’s best for you, their guests. Finally, furniture and equipment have to be regularly replaced and serviced to always ensure an acceptable standard and make sure that you are not disappointed.
