How should I price my corporate housing rental property?

“How should I price my corporate housing rental property?”
“When should I negotiate, and when should I hold firm on my rates?”

What are the most asked questions at CHBO? You got it, “What are the current Corporate Housing Rental Rates.” Because these are the top questions we’re asked at CHBO, we’ve divided this topic into three sections in our CHBO Annual Report: Variance, Actual and Discounts.

Variance: Changes in Rental Rates


We asked respondents to evaluate their current rental rates compared to the previous year for the exact same rental property.  Rental rates

The great news is that 39% of respondents – an all-time high – report having higher or much higher rates in 2015. This number has been rising since 2013, and it’s significantly above the 22% reported in 2011.

Another positive sign… We saw a 3% decrease in the number of respondents who say their rental rates were identical to the previous year.

In 2015, only 4% say that had “lower” or “much lower” rates than the previous year. (This is consistent with 2014.) Collectively, this is a big contrast to the 2011 Corporate Housing Report in which 16% said they had “lower” or “much lower” rates than the previous year.
