The Benefits of Renting as a Home Manager

1. No long-term lease

Home managers are able to enjoy the flexibility of not being bound by a long-term lease. Oftentimes, people go through certain life situations that may make it difficult to commit to strict leasing agreements, or have occupations that require short-term living arrangements. Home manager programs typically last between 2-5 months depending on how long it takes for a property to sell, providing a convenient compromise for those looking for a nice place to stay for a short period of time. Working professionals such as contract workers, those in the military, or workers who are being relocated, are all great candidates for home managing because the programs will be better suited for their timing needs.

Becoming a home manager will take away the burden of making any concrete decisions, and will be a better fit to tailor to timing needs without any added stress. You will be able to simply join the program without committing to any long-term agreements or contracts. If a home happens to sell quicker than anticipated, you will easily be moved to another luxury property in the area.

2. Fully-furnished homes

One of the most stressful parts of moving is having to transport a multitude of household items and heavy furniture from place to place, especially when you are only planning on staying for a short amount of time. Home managers enjoy the convenience of staying in fully-furnished luxury properties that have everything you need to make life comfortable. Furthermore, all luxury homes are professionally designed to create charming and elegant settings to make you feel right at home. 

3. Many properties have luxury amenities

Managing a luxury home will allow you to live a lifestyle you have always dreamed about. Instead of settling for an average rental home or apartment, enjoy properties that have multiple desired features that are simply incomparable. For starters, home managers get to enjoy living in properties with large square footage that they may not be able to obtain with a rental home or apartment. The luxury properties are also modernized with open-concept living spaces and high-end appliances for ultimate comfort. Many of the homes have spa-like features in master and secondary bathrooms that provide a resort-style living experience, along with other added features such as swimming pools, large backyards and beautiful views.

4. Explore new areas of town without a commitment

If you are someone who enjoys traveling and exploring new places, home managing may be a great fit for you. A typical home manager lease runs between 3-5 months, depending on how quickly the property sells. Therefore, home managers in Northeast Florida can experience living in a variety of different neighborhoods and properties across the five-county area that range from high-rise riverfront condos, to beachfront estates and lavish country clubs.
