Corporate Housing: Standards and CHBO Complete™

CHBO has long been a supporter of Corporate Housing Standards and that is why we believe CHBO Complete™ is the most important tool CHBO offers to both our travelers and our properties.

In a recent Worldwide ERC Mobility Magazine article “Online Marketplaces – What you see is not always what you get” Amanda Cook, Director of Membership and Marketing for the Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA) talks about the lack of housing standards for the Corporate Housing Industry and says “Not All corporate housing is created equal.”

We totally agree and that is why from the very beginning of CHBO we setup the CHBO Complete ™  standards to allow tenants and properties the platform of standards and sCHBO Completeet expectations.

What is CHBO Complete™?

CHBO Complete™ is a quality seal that identifies properties that meet or exceed the minimum standards as stated by the corporate housing industry and expected by the standard corporate housing tenant.

We created CHBO Complete™ as a way to quickly identify properties that include everything experienced renters expect to find in a quality furnished rental. When a property listing bears this seal, it communicates value, indicates the housing provider has followed the guidelines given in the CHBO Handbook.

CHBO Complete

CHBO complete includes specific inventory items and utilities (phone, cable, internet, utilities) are all included in one monthly rental rate facilitating a quality rental experience. The “tenant review process” successfully serves as a checks and balance system.
