Being a student is no walk in the park. It's a time when you have to make some of the most important decisions in your life. Like, what kind of University are you planning on going to? Are you staying in your hometown or are you moving away?
If you’re planning on leaving the nest and moving out on your own or with some of your closest friends, I totally get ya! I’ve been living on my own since I was 17 and not once have I looked back. However, that’s not to say that living on your own is easy. One of the hardest things about moving out is finding a place to live.
There are so many things to think about when moving out, like rent, electricity, hot water, gas, and then, of course, you have to furnish the place all by yourself. That's a lot of time spent just to setting up the place that could be spent studying or out partying with your friends!
Fortunately, there’s a company called Sonder that offers beautiful apartments, fully-equipped, specifically for students!Rent this loft-style 4 bedroom in the Plateau here.
The really great thing about Sonder is that each home is fully furnished with everything you need from modern appliances to silverware. This means no tedious trip to IKEA to buy furniture that you’re either going to end up selling in the future, or storing.Rent this spacious 5 bedroom in Central Plateau here.
Now, if you’re not from Montreal, you’ll quickly learn how annoying it can be to find a subletter to take over your lease in the summer if you’re going back home to see your parents. I’ve been there and it sucks because you don’t want to get stuck paying rent for an apartment that's left empty. Well, all Sonder leases are tailored around the academic year which means that you don’t have to worry about finding a subletter! That’s right, Sonder offers 4-10 month leases because they get what the student life is all about.Rent this expansive 6 bedroom in the Plateau here.
Another cool thing about Sonder is that all homes include high-speed internet and free storage over the summer. There’s also optional bi-weekly housekeeping and linen replacement if you’re finding it difficult to keep the house clean. No shame in that, with all the studying you’re doing, it can be hard to maintain a spotless home… right? ;)Rent this modern 2 bedroom in Old Montreal here.
There's also a bunch of free perks included at no cost. 24/7 customer service, VIP access to nightlife events and talks from the city's top entrepreneurs and investors (networking!!) and discounts on local stores and services! What other landlord offers all of those awesome perks for free?!
Moving out is ridiculously easy with Sonder. Every home is turnkey which means that you can move into new home right away, all you need to bring with you are your clothes! Everything else will be waiting for you as soon as you arrive. I wish I had known about Sonder when I was still in University, it honestly would’ve made my life so much easier.Rent this bright 2 bedroom in Festival Quarter here.
Sonder might be the best bang for your buck out there, so what are you waiting for? There are over 150 listings in the city! That’s 150 homes that are fully furnished. If you’re planning on moving out or if you’re an out-of-town student, then you need to seriously check out Sonder!
