Experience with using Furnished Finder

Mose Gebremeskel

Curious what's people's experience with using Furnished Finder for your MTR. Also what other alternatives are there if I'm primarily looking for those in the medical fields?

I receive a lot of inquiry from them, but all of my bookings have come through Airbnb

I listed my beach house there this summer to rent it monthly in the winter, which is the slow season. There is a hospital about 7 miles away. I’ve gotten multiple inquiries and 3 requests for showings. 2 of those showings went with other rentals due to location, and one tried to lowball me with a ridiculous price. Most of the general inquiries want unreasonably low prices running into the high season. Or they want to pay for a smaller place, mine is 4 bedroom. So it hasn’t worked out for me or the other nearby rentals listed.

Furnished Finder is a lead generation source but it's been great. I've gotten reservations from traveling medical professionals, corporation, and even one from a MLB agent through Furnished Finder. 

I also recommend listing on Airbnb, Facebook Marketplace, Zillow, and Temporary Housing Directory to name a few
