My wife and I are in the process of making plans to move to the Charlotte area and need assistance from you, the current residences. I have a friend in Charlotte who has advised me to look for a place in the North/north east area of Charlotte. I am presently looking for an apartment (preferably furished if possible) that, hopefully will be temporary (a few months at the most). There will be 4 of us living in it. I have done some research and one place that came up in my price range that is furnished (and has many of the amenities included) is 901 Place, which I believe is geared more to college students. I'm o.k. with this, but I would like some info. from you in regards to this place and location that I may not find on the Internet. If this is not a place to consider, then are there any apartments that you can recommend I research? Also, I would be glad to work with a realtor who knows the area and who can look on my behalf. As mentioned, the plans are for temporary use because we plan on buying a house after getting employment established.

My wife and I greatly appreciate your assistance with this.

Furnished apartments aren't common in the Charlotte metro.

I had to look up 901 Place. It is advertised as student housing and you may not be able to rent there if you or your wife are not attending a local college.

What is your rental budget? With this type of apartment each bedroom is leased separately so it would be over $1600 a month for you to rent a 4 bedroom. For that amount you could rent a nice house.

We went throught the same thing. Not many apartments offer short term, month to month leases. We ended up at one off of Mallard Creek.

You can rent furniture from third party companies no matter where your apartment is. We have even rented washer and dryers for short term conditions.

This time, we brought small furniture with us (folding tables, lamps, etc.) and bought fold out bed/chairs from Ikea. We already planned on using those in the new house for sleepovers, so it wasn't just for the apartment.

Good luck!

For short term furnished rentals try:

Corporate Relocation Inc. 704-875-2656

or

A Home Suite Home 704-892-0097

I believe Camden Sedgebrook Huntersville
has a few furnished apartments as well
704-865-1005

These companies mostly have properties
in the North Meck area.
Good luck!!

Thanks for the feedback. To cover a couple of points, no children and the plans are to either transfer with current employer or get a job with a prior employer before moving. As for 901 Place, I must have missed the part about the rentals being per room. Their e-mail to me when I inquired about renting there led me to think otherwise. As for renting furniture vs. getting some temp. furniture, if furnished apts. aren't a viable issue, I'll have to weigh this out.

As for apartments, any suggestions? I'm sure it goes without saying, but it needs to be in a safe area that has a good/great rep. Budget is $600-$700 a month.

Hi again! Is that $600-700 per person or total for the 4 of you? Around $700 is the starting rate for a nice one bedroom apartment in Charlotte.

Student housing like 901 Place are like unofficial off campus dorms. I lived in a similar complex when I went to UNC Charlotte. You can rent the whole unit at a discounted rate but but probably still be more expensive than a traditional, non student apartment. From the website:

What does “individual leasing” mean?
Each resident has their own lease for their specific bedroom. So, if a roommate moves out, the other residents are not responsible for that person’s rent.
