Home hunting at this time of year is an unpleasant endeavor for buyers and renters alike. It seems like everyone and their mother is interested in the same space and beating you to it — whether in terms of price or literally getting arriving at a showing first. Add Boston’s temporary seasonal residents — summer term professors and students enrolled in summer programs — to the mix and the apartment hunt becomes even more torturous. That’s where Furnished Quarters comes in.
These days you can lease everything from handbags and designer dresses

companies starting to sprout.
