Move-in Ready Apartments (Already Furnished!)

a move-in ready apartment in West Village
These furnished, move-in ready apartments are only missing one thing—and it's you.

Everyone has their own priorities during their apartment search. For some, it’s all about granite countertops and top-of-the-line appliances. For others, it all boils down to cost. Other renters, however, love a different convenience: furnished, move-in ready apartments.

Though more expensive than their empty counterparts, move-in ready rentals offer a quick, easy, and stylish way to kickstart life in a new place. If you’re too busy (or too design-challenged) to outfit your own place, furnished apartments can be well worth the extra cost. And here are a few that are as fun to look at as they are easy to move into.

a move-in ready apartment in Atlanta

The location is as prime as the furnishing are modern in this Atlanta apartment. See more photos here.

1. Atlanta, Georgia

Upscale apartment community near work and play


In a large metropolitan area like Atlanta, it matters where you settle. Situated between popular suburbs Druid Hills and Decatur, Gables Emory Point is an ideal rental community for someone working at or near Emory University or the CDC. Besides offering a quick commute, the neighborhood is a short walk or drive from several restaurants and retailers—including Emory Point, a food and shopping hub.

You can rent a furnished one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment there for $1,634 per month—though there are other price points available for studios and larger units. Fitness buffs will enjoy living within walking distance of Orangetheory Fitness, Pink Barre, and Empower Yoga.

What’s better, that couch or the view? You don’t have to choose in this Clearwater, Fla. rental. See more photos here.

2. Clearwater, Florida

Window-lined condo with ocean views


Located a safe distance from larger “spring break” cities, Clearwater is known for its top-rated, family-friendly beaches—but residents and tourists can still expect to find fun on shore as well. Once a year, jazz cats flock to the Clearwater Jazz Holiday, and every night is a party with Sunsets at Pier 60, a daily music festival featuring local musicians, vendors, and artisans.

This two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo in the Island Estate neighborhood offers beautiful ocean views and an address near the city’s best attractions. (It’s a six-minute walk from the Clearwater Aquarium.) The many shops, restaurants, and white-sand beaches of Clearwater Beach are less than 10 minutes away.


a move-in ready apartment in

This sweet New Orleans duplex is in the heart of the Big Easy and ready for an easy move-in. See more photos here.

3. New Orleans, Louisiana

Charming duplex in a quiet neighborhood


New Orleans is a vibrant blend of live music, nonstop nightlife, and cross-cultural cuisine. For an idyllic retreat that’s still convenient to the Big Easy action, look no further than Marleyville – Fontainbleau. The neighborhood is filled with charming homes in a variety of architectural styles, and it is also home to Palmer Park, a neighborhood retreat that hosts a monthly arts festival.

If you like hardwood floors and a fireplace in every room, you’re sure to love this two-bedroom, one-bathroom duplex. The quiet, tree-lined street offers a peaceful alternative from New Orleans-style nightlife, but you can still find yourself on Bourbon Street in 20 minutes or less.


a move-in ready apartment in Asheville, N.C.

This Asheville, N.C. apartment is Southern through and through. See more photos here.

4. Asheville, North Carolina

Elegant apartment in a vintage home


A lively city in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville is a celebration of natural beauty and fine art. The Downtown Arts District, the Basilica of Saint Lawerence, and the Biltmore Estate are other popular attractions for those who enjoy art, gardens, and architecture. Near the University of North Carolina at Asheville, the Jackson Park neighborhood is a great area for any renter looking for fun close to downtown.

This one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment offers quintessential, turn-of-the-century Southern style. In this house-turned-boutique-rental, you can pass the time drinking sweet tea on the back porch—or make the 10-minute drive into downtown Asheville and enjoy some of the city’s best restaurants and breweries.


a move-in ready apartment in San Francisco

San Francisco’s SoMa neighborhood is the place to be, and this rental is close to all it offers. See more photos here.

5. San Francisco, California

Pristine, stylish apartment in SoMa


The San Francisco neighborhood of SoMa is an up-and-coming tech center in the midst of rampant growth and redesign. Formerly a warehouse district, the area is now home to big-name headquarters like Salesforce, Airbnb, Pinterest, and Dropbox—to name a few. Not that it’s just a business district; many of SoMa’s abandoned buildings and warehouses have become trendy art galleries, pubs, and coffee shops.

With a clean, modern style this one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment comes with a great view of the neighborhood. It also features a sleek kitchen, but with so many great restaurants within walking distance, those countertops may stay spotless.


a move-in ready apartment in Denver

There is room to stretch out in this furnished rental in Denver. See more photos here.

6. Denver, Colorado

Exposed brick heaven in the heart of downtown


Life in Denver offers big-city living without leaving the outdoor lifestyle in the burbs. This holds true even in Union Station, a bustling downtown neighborhood and transportation hub. Living in downtown Denver puts you close to some of the city’s best retail, dining, and nightlife experiences—but it’s just as easy to go fly fishing on the South Platte River. If you’d rather stay dry, head to Pigtrain Coffee for a locally-roasted brew, or meet friends at Snooze for a brunch that’s truly worth the wait.

This one-bedroom, one-bathroom loft is perfect for anyone with a heart for exposed brick, large kitchens, and downtown living. And it’s just a short walk from the many food, drink, and transportation options offered at Denver Union Station.


a move-in ready apartment in West Village

This quaint and cozy West Village apartment is a rare find in New York City. See more photos here.

7. New York, New York

Updated apartment in West Village


The charming storefronts and eye-catching architecture lend West Village an intimate vibe that can be hard to find in many New York neighborhoods. Despite this relaxed atmosphere, the area is well-loved by busy New Yorkers and tourists alike—thanks to the many stylish boutiques, bars, and eateries that line its cobblestone streets. Though still a bustling city district, there’s something about West Village that makes it a welcome reprieve from the rest of the Big Apple.

“Affordable” isn’t a word one often hears in New York real estate, but where else could an already-furnished apartment have more appeal? (Just imagine carrying an IKEA coffee table down Greenwich Street.) This one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment comes ready-to-go with stylish pieces and an outdoor terrace.


a move-in ready apartment in Nashville, Tenn.

This restored 1920s log cabin has the perfect amount of quirk for Nashville, Tenn. See more photos here.

8. Nashville, Tennesse

Charming cottage in tree-lined Music City suburb


In a rapidly-growing city like Nashville, it can be hard to find a spacious rental within reach of local fun. The Talbot’s Corner neighborhood is Nashville’s solution with larger, single-family rentals still just a short distance from popular areas such as 12 South, the Gulch, and downtown.

You can enjoy picket fences, cottage housing, and bright, modern style in this three-bedroom, two-bathroom house in Talbot’s Corner. Not only is this home a short commute from downtown Nashville, but it’s also near popular food joints like The Pharmacy and Mas Tacos.


a move-in ready apartment in San Diego

Glass doors and brick walls set a serene tone in this furnished San Diego rental. See more photos here.

9. San Diego, California

Sleek apartment in a walkable neighborhood


With its enviable climate, stunning beaches, and laid-back vibe, it’s no wonder San Diego appeals to so many. For those who enjoy an eclectic neighborhood and sticking close to the action, Hillcrest is the ideal spot. Celebrated for its diversity and as the starting point of San Diego’s annual Pride Parade, this welcoming community is known for its walkable streets that house everything from gelato shops (try Pappalecco) to wine bars.

This two-bedroom, two bathroom condo is for the renter who loves to walk everywhere. You’ll be able to walk or bike to your pick of grocery stores (including Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and Sprouts), several restaurants, and the Hillcrest Farmer’s Market.


a move-in ready apartment in Austin, Texas

This furnished rental is as stylishly whimsical as Austin, Texas itself. See more photos here.

10. Austin, Texas

Modern, eclectic home made for entertaining


Celebrated for its music scene, outdoor adventure, and endless bars and restaurants, Austin is a unique multicultural hub in the Lone Star State. And Bouldin Creek, one of Austin’s oldest neighborhoods, is as fun and funky as the city itself. The streets are lined with a mix of historic and newly-constructed homes, and the location provides quick access to popular destinations such as Zilker Park and Lady Bird Lake.

Immaculately styled with quirky decor, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom house is perfect for anyone looking to become a full-blown Austinite overnight. The large backyard is the perfect spot to host a cookout. Just don’t bother with dessert, as you and your party can walk to Gordough’s for some of the best gourmet donuts in the U.S.
