DENVER, December 5, 2012 – Increasing demand for furnished housing outside of the U.S. has prompted Corporate Housing by Owner to rapidly expand to meet the needs of the international community. In Q4, CHBO boasts 19 corporate housing properties listed for rent in Barcelona, Spain, and dozens of other international properties available in Switzerland, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama and Thailand.
Corporate Housing by Owner, or CHBO, is a marketplace that connects private landlords offering furnished corporate housing with tenants in need of temporary housing. The company has connected thousands of tenants with individuals and property management companies offering unique month-to-month rental properties.
“The concept of corporate housing or serviced apartments, is becoming more widely recognized and accepted outside of North America and is quickly becoming the go-to alternative to stodgy hotels when traveling abroad,” says Kimberly Smith, cofounder and CEO of CHBO. “What tenants love about corporate housing is their ability to live like local residents rather than transient tourists. They also love the opportunity to save money over long-term stays, a top-of-mind concern for today’s budget-conscience world travelers.”
Business travelers, traveling professionals, visiting doctors, traveling nurses and relocated professionals can search corporate housing property listings on CHBO to find a furnished monthly rental property in various cities across North America and across the globe.
“After scrolling through the CHBO property listing page for Barcelona and other cities outside of the U.S., I’ve never been more excited for the tenants who use CHBO and who might be traveling to these beautiful and historic cities. For the first time ever, they can choose from dozens of wonderful, centrally-located properties around the world, making their temporary stays abroad feel less stressed, more comfortable and, of course, more like a home away from home,” says Smith.
To find a corporate housing property in North America or abroad, or to list your furnished property as a short-term, monthly rental, please visit Corporate Housing by Owner.
