Albuquerque Furnished Housing – CHBO City Spotlight

With so many corporate employers in the region, Albuquerque is a growing hotspot for business travelers. The need for Albuquerque furnished housing has been increasing over time, and if you are headed to “the Q” for a lengthy stay it is unlikely that you will want to spend your time in some typical extended stay property. This is why you should consider your options in corporate furnished housing and furnished corporate apartments. Why enjoy a visit or begin your move to the area in a less than comfortable setting? You don’t have to, and there are plenty of solutions for you to explore.

Information About Albuquerque

The city has more than one million residents, and as already mentioned, is home to a long list of corporations. Intel, Sandia National Laboratories, and TempurPedic are but a few of the global companies with a major presence in this region. Rated as one of the top ten cities for engineering professionals, it is expected to face an increasing demand for furnished housing in the coming years.

As the city of Albuquerque’s website reads: “Albuquerque has all the elements necessary for successful tech clusters: research centers, an environment of innovation, low cost of doing business, a sizable population of scientists and engineers, low utility rates, venture capital, support networks, and a quality of life that’s attractive to innovators.”

However, as is the case with all cities, not all of the neighborhoods of Albuquerque are alike. Many different neighborhoods provide an abundance of housing options. There are apartments in the “Uptown Loop” area of the city and there are townhouses and gated communities within easy reach of the busier downtown and industrial areas. The thing to remember when considering furnished housing in Albuquerque is whether you want many outdoor amenities or if the city life is for you.

Facts: Corporate Relocation Trends and Workforce Mobility

Did you happen to catch the most recent Mobility Magazine? As relocation continues to be the number one reason people need to stay in corporate housing it is always a good idea to watch the numbers, see the trends and know what is going on.  Mobility Options for corporate travelers

Why? Really it is simple:

Need + Mobility = Corporate Housing Renter

Understanding Relocation Trends and Workforce Mobility

Annually Weichert Relocation does a Mobility Survey and they asked “What external factors are driving the demand for a more agile workforce.”

This is how the corporations surveyed responded:

78% Talent Shortage

62% Competitive Nature of the Industry

47% Overall Economic Conditions

42% Increased Project Work

27% elocationeal Estate Market

16% Reluctance Toward Permanent Relocation

8% Regulatory Changes in the Industry

Translation:  A more “agile” workforce means more need for corporate housing.

Of course it makes logical sense to stay in a corporate housing rental if you are only going to be in a new city for a few months.  But what if you are doing a permanent relocation?  One of the trends we are seeing here at CHBO is the need for people to “Test Drive” a neighborhood.  You would never buy a new car without a test drive to see if you like the way it feels, if you can see around any blind spots, or simply to see if it works.  So why do most people just buy a house without understanding more of the details.  Before you buy you should know if you like the local grocery store, know how long your commute will take and maybe even what noise happens in the area at night.

If you are relocating, take the time to find a corporate housing rental on CHBO that is in the area you want to buy.  Take a few  months to actually live in the neighborhood to find answers to your questions and ensure you are making the most educated buying decision possible.

Just WRONG! Corporate Housing Rentals are not “crash pads”!

I really hate it when people are just WRONG!Corporate Housing Expert

FACT: Corporate Housing Rentals come in ALL shapes and sizes.

FICTION: Corporate Housing is only for corporate travelers.

FICTION: Corporate Housing Rentals are Boring.

Truth: Corporate Housing Rentals are AMAZING and should be more than just a “crash pad.”

There are very few things is this world that are worse than ignorance. If you don’t know the answer it is okay to just say so, there really is no need to just make stuff up – really!

Recently a senior director of global mobility for some large credit card company decided to write an article about 5 tips when relocating. Tip #4 and I quote, “Don’t expect temporary housing to be a penthouse at the Ritz (But smile inside if it is!) This is why it’s called temporary-because you won’t stay there long. Yes, it probably won’t face east or have an ocean view.  It might not have shiny new appliances or hardwood floors. But you can expect a bed, a TV, and Internet access, and you’ll be able to wake up and go to work every day. It’s not intended to be a luxurious all-expenses-paid private villa.  Think of it more as a crash pad for the first few weeks, so you can concentrate on ramping up in your new position.”

OMG did she get it WRONG or What!!!

After I get over my frustration that she is just wrong, I guess I just have to feel sorry for her because of her ignorance. I find it hard to believe she has never been to the CHBO website or worked with any of the other AMAZING companies that I work with every day that offer incredible corporate housing rentals.

There are so many incredible corporate housing rentals on CHBO that any corporate housing renter who just settles for a “cash pad” I guess deserves to stay in a less than amazing property.
