Why Snowbirds Love Living With Landing

Snowbirds flying south for the winter

As someone who tends to spend the entire winter season burrito-ed under multiple layers of fuzzy blankets, I’ve always admired how my grandparents fled to Florida each year the second their thermometer dipped below 50. 

I always imagined I would be a far happier person if I could have a similar “Snowbird” arrangement, but my yearlong apartment leases and lack of a small fortune to spend on an extended vacation on top of my rent made this impossible.

Well, with Landing, this is no longer the case. If you’re considering a temporary escape to warmer pastures, here’s why Snowbirds love living with Landing:

1. We offer flexible leases

While traditional apartment or vacation rentals require you to sign a rigid lease or fork over a ton of money, Landing offers our members fully furnished apartments with flexible leases that let you stay in your new home for as long as you’d like. So, if you want to live in a southern state from November to March, that’s no problem—and you can even stay indefinitely as part of our Landing Explorer program! You can also easily transfer to new Landing apartments in other cities, making it seamless to live exactly where you want, when you want, throughout the year. 

2. Our cities fit every need

Landing now operates in over 375 cities throughout the U.S., giving our members plenty of options to choose from. Snowbirds love our Florida cities such as Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Tampa, while winter sports enthusiasts may choose to spend the season in Denver, Boulder, or Salt Lake City. Whether you want to bask in the sun on a southern beach or hit the slopes out west, you’ll be able to come home to your furnished Landing apartment at the end of the day.

3. Our apartments come fully furnished

Landing apartments come fully furnished and filled with all the amenities you need to start living in your new city. This means you don’t have to lug all of your kitchenware, toiletries, and linens into your new home—we do all the work for you, saving you space in your suitcase and making your winter move just a little less daunting. Plus, many Landing apartments even have a pool onsite, giving you just one more opportunity to lounge by the water without even stepping foot outside. Work-from-pool, anyone? 

Additionally, over 95% of Landing apartments are pet-friendly, so you don’t have to leave your furry friend at home while you fly south for the winter.
