Five Things Every Business Travelers Should Look for in a Corporate Rental Stay

Independently owned corporate housing options, such as the listings you will find on Corporate Housing By Owner, are as unique as the people who own and manage them.  From the basic offerings to higher end finishes to a more diverse location, with managed corporate housing you’ll find a property that is tailored made for your needs.

So, what should you look for when searching for a corporate rental?  That depends on what is important to you in your stay, but here are five elements you should evaluate a property for:

–       Does the property offer the lease terms and availability you require? Check the dates that the corporate rental is available (in CHBO, view the listing’s Availability Calendar) to determine if its availability corresponds with your lease start time, length of stay and lease end date. Also, if you need more flexibility, like the option to renew your lease on a month to month basis, is the landlord flexible with the availability schedule to allow you to extend and end your stay as necessary?

–       Does the property’s rent fall within your budget? Whether your company is paying for your stay, or rent is coming out of your own pocket, everybody has a budget to stick to. However, posted prices may be flexible depending on the lease terms, length of stay, etc.  So don’t eliminate the property without finding out if the landlord is flexible with the rate.

–       Does the property offer the amenities and conveniences you are looking for? If you like to get in a quick workout every morning, you’ll want to be sure the property you choose has an onsite fitness center.  And if an Internet connection is essential, you’ll need to confirm that the unit features that as well.  Make a list of the little things in your life that you must have and cross-reference it with the property’s attributes.

–       Does the property’s location match your needs? Location should be at the top of your check list. Making sure that a property is located in close proximity to your work, grocery stores, restaurants and, overall, with a setting that you feel comfortable in.

–       Does the property size fit your requirements? If you are bringing the family with you or expecting visitors during your stay, you’ll not only want to be sure the property features enough bedrooms or sleeping space for its occupants, but also you’ll want to make sure that guests are okay with your landlord. The same goes for pets. If you’re bringing your cat or dog along for the stay, you’ll need to discuss whether this is permitted with the landlord and if there are extra fees involved as well.

Keeping the above in mind when searching for a corporate rental should help you find the perfect place for your temporary stay in no time!
