Though corporate housing in San Francisco is recognized as some of the most popular and in demand, it still remains a wonderfully savvy option for those in need of a furnished rental. While long stay business hotels still exist, the constant demand for short term rentals throughout the San Francisco region makes it a wonderfully ripe marketplace for travelers of many kinds.
However, if you are the owner (or intended owner) of a furnished rental, you will want to pay attention to the challenges facing corporate housing in San Francisco. As one of the first cities in which the Airbnb model really exploded, it is also a city in which legal issues have also appeared.
New rules require any furnished rental to be officially registered and it can be available for no more than 90 days out of each calendar year. However, if you “host” (meaning you remain on the premises during the “visit”), the potential is unlimited. Thus, something as simple as a locking, dividing door can make the difference between a limited rental and an unlimited one.
Does it mean you won’t want to offer property or rent it when in San Francisco? No, not at all! The city is still one of the busiest markets – even with new guidelines in place. When looking for a place to stay during a longer visit in San Francisco, consider the short term rentals and corporate apartments scattered throughout this charming region.
