MONTHLY RENT: NOTHING IS PERFECT!!! You will find that our monthly rent is on average 10-20% higher for the equivalent rooms rented through the other agencies. Thus we do not recommend our company for tenants planning to stay for more than 2 years. Monthly rent is cheaper but to see the real monthly rent do not forget to add the initial MOVE IN COST and to divide it by the numbers of months you are intending to stay in one place.
