Why High Spec Furnished Apartments in Wellington Are in Demand 

There are several key reasons why Wellington’s furnished apartment market is booming:

Rise in domestic and international travel – the borders are open and there are minimal local Covid-19 restrictions. This has led to an increase of arrivals into the Capital for both work and vacation purposes. Many overseas corporates are also taking the opportunity to visit for several months to liaise with local teams, many of whom bring their partners and family with them.

Location – apartments located in or near to the CBD are favoured by both corporate and holidaymakers alike. With the availability of local transport and parking opportunities, and being near cafes, shopping and workplaces, well presented furnished apartments are being snapped up.

Convenience – being able to simply move into an apartment with just your personal belongings offers a whole new level of convenience many are looking for. Corporate clients often travel long distances, work long hours, and entertain at home. Knowing their furnished apartment will be beautifully maintained with furnishings and features of the highest spec, provides them with peace of mind.

Lifestyle appeal – many professionals are choosing to rent furnished apartments because of the highly sort after lifestyle they provide. Unlike purchasing a property, tenants have no maintenance to do, and can enjoy a minimalistic lifestyle as they do not own large pieces of furniture. This frees them up to socialise and enjoy exploring Wellington instead. Also, many newly arrived professionals choose to rent long term before they purchase a property. This gives them the opportunity to identify their preferred suburbs and type of housing.
