Tips for renting your apartment

Renting your furnished property for short term periods is a decision not to be taken lightly. Indeed, in order to be rented on a regular basis, your apartment will have to respect a certain number of criteria both to comply with the rules and to correspond to the quality standards that we wish to propose to the customers of GLAMAPARIS.

Offer a quality property

At GLAMAPARIS, we are committed to providing our international guests with high quality apartments. Therefore, it is important to us that the apartments we manage are particularly well equipped, aesthetically pleasing and suitable for rental.

Of course, a primary residence is the place where the owners live most of the year. Therefore, we will never ask for major work to be done in the apartment. Nevertheless, some elements seem necessary to us in order to benefit both the tenants and the owners.

Offer quality bedding
Decorate your apartment with care (avoid objects of high value)
Leave storage space available for tenants

The decoration and the equipment

Choose modern and contemporary furniture
Optimize storage space
A renovated bathroom and kitchen will make a difference
Opt for up-to-date, energy-efficient light fixtures

Respect the current legislation

In order to fight against the increase of rents, the government and the city of Paris have put in place rules to limit certain abuses in the recent years. Among these rules, we can mention:

  • the prohibition of renting a second home for short periods of time,
  • the limitation to 120 nights per year of the rental of one’s main residence,
  • the registration of one’s accommodation at the Paris City Hall with a registration number.

Since 2008, GLAMAPARIS specializes in the short term rental of furnished apartments. Therefore, we have been able to witness from the inside the different legal evolutions regarding the rental rules.

So, do not hesitate to contact us in order to know if your apartment can be rented or if there is a certain need to take some measures to put it on the market.
