If you’re moving to a new city for work, even just for a few months, you’re going to have a lot on your mind. Most pressingly, you’ll have to find a place to live when you arrive, and that can be the most stressful part of the whole process. After all, if you’ve never been to New York or Las Vegas, how are you going to pick the best neighborhood to live in while you get to know the area and choose a permanent home?
You could just look at a map of the area, pinpoint where you’ll be working, and find temporary apartments in the surrounding area. However, that can be really problematic in a couple of ways. First of all, you’ll have no idea what kind of neighborhood you’re moving into. You could be moving into an area that’s crime-ridden and has no accessible amenities nearby, like grocery stores or restaurants. Likewise, you might have trouble finding a great place that will allow you to rent on a month-to-month or week-to-week basis. Fortunately, though, at CHBO, we have solutions for all of these problems with corporate rental apartments.
Talk to Your Boss About Corporate Housing
First of all, your corporation may actually already have a program for relocating employees. If they rent corporate housing units, then you may be in luck because you won’t have to do any of the work at all. They’ll already have you taken care of with an apartment or house to meet your temporary housing needs in a good neighborhood that’s probably just five to ten minutes from the office.
If your company works with CHBO, you may even be allowed to choose your own corporate housing option from our listings in the area around your work. If your corporation is really trying to woo you into moving to this new location and staying with them, they’ll pull out all the stops to impress you with an incredibly well appointed property.
Look Into Corporate Rental Apartments On Your Own
Even if your company does not specifically partner with CHBO, you will probably have a stipend or allowance for your relocation. The rental rates for properties listed on CHBO are very reasonable, especially for fully furnished apartments, and you should have no trouble paying your rent with part of your moving stipend.
Also, because these apartments and houses are all fully furnished, you won’t have to worry about moving all of your own furniture to your new location right away. You also won’t waste money on buying temporary furniture and either throwing it away or finding something to do with it when you do move your furniture to your new home.
Don’t Bother With a Traditional Lease
Now, some people get the idea that they should move into a traditional rental property with a full yearlong lease when they first move to a new city. Then they move all of their things into that space, and they have to stay there until the lease is up if they don’t want to lose their deposit.
Meanwhile, they find the place they actually want to live in much faster than they thought they would, and they find themselves frustrated, trying to find a way to break the lease or find someone to sublet the space while they move. Not only that, but did you notice that in this scenario they had to move all of their things twice instead of just once? This is another big expense and hassle that fully furnished corporate housing takes care of for you.
Also, if you’re not planning on moving to the area permanently, you can run into even more trouble with a traditional lease. For one thing, you will probably not be living here for a full year if your contract expires in six months. And for another, it’s really not worth it to either move your furniture or buy new furniture if you’re only going to be living here for a few months. In fact, doing that could actually mean spending so much money that your temporary work here isn’t really worth the hassle or cost to move to the area for just a few months.
At CorporateHousingByOwner, we have listings for all kinds of types of corporate housing – from lofts and apartments to houses – all over the country. If you need to travel for work for a few weeks, a few months, or to relocate permanently, we can help make the whole process easier. With fully furnished corporate housing, you will have luxury accommodations at a fraction of the price of staying in a luxury hotel, and you won’t have to worry about whether or not you’re moving into a good temporary apartment near work, either. With these properties, you’ll always find the best places to live within an easy commute of your company, but without all the hassle of finding a traditional lease on your own.
