Renting … Everything!


ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) – Los Angeles, Manhattan, Philly, and San Francisco are just some of the cities that are getting a big influx of millennials. And according to The Independent, 43 percent of millennials are only staying at their jobs for two years before packing up and leaving. With all this moving, what do you do to make your move easier?

For sale signs are popping up … and staying up.  In fact, according to a recent economics and discussion series, only a third of millennials own a home. More and more of the younger generation are renting … not just their living space…but what they’re putting in it.

For furniture, there is the app Feather. You can choose between the three-month minimum or an annual contract. From dining tables to couches and even air conditioners, users just have to pay a monthly fee of 19 dollars … furniture costs extra, but payments go towards owning. There is also Cort and Brook where you can add those accent pieces like pillows and plants. You can even rent what goes in your closet. Rent A Runway gives users a chance to expand their closet for up to 80 dollars a month. They offer free shipping and dry cleaning. For some more luxury in your handbag, use Bag, Borrow or Steal where you can borrow for up to a month, buy a new handbag or even sell some. With a small glimpse into the renting life.
