CHBO Annual Report Review: Property Locations and Number of Properties

The results are in, so let’s dig deeper. Each week CHBO will analyze data from the annual corporate housing report and open a discussion. Please provide feedback with your experiences in 2017. This week we discuss CHBO Property Locations.

CHBO Property Locations

We received hundreds of survey responses from property owners and real estate managers across the UnitedCHBO rental locations
States including 43 states and the District of Columbia.
Similar to last year, the top U.S. states for responses​ were:

1. California: 27% (up 6% from 2016)
2. Colorado: 15% (up 2% from 2016)
3. Texas: 10% (up 2% from 2016)
4. Washington: 5% (down 3% from 2016)
5. Georgia: 4% (down 2% from 2016)
6. Oregon and Illinois 4%

Number of Properties

46% of respondents say they have one rental property, tying the highest response we have had two years in a row. 37% report they have two to five properties (up from 35% in 2016). Perhaps the most interesting trend​ to note is that over the last six years, the property ownership numbers have generally stayed the same. (The one exception was in 2011 when we saw a 6% increase in property owners with one rental unit.We believe that may have been due to
the number of “accidental landlords” who entered the market at that
time, due to the economy.)

Given that more than eight in 10 survey respondents​ say they only have one to five rental units, the responses in this annual report truly reflect the independent corporate housing real estate segment.

Annual Report: Corporate Survey Respondents

Corporate Survey Respondents

  • Property Locations. Hundreds of property owners from across the United States (including 38 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico) and Canada responded to the 2013 survey. The highest response rate came from property owners in California, followed by Colorado, Texas, Washington and Illinois.
  • Number of Properties. 42% of corporate survey respondents say they have one rental property – about the same as 2012. Meanwhile, 41% report they have two to five properties. This group is up from 35% in 2012 – but the percentage is back to a similar level seen in 2010.
  • Years as a Corporate Housing Landlord. 38% of corporate survey respondents say they have been furnished landlords for five years or more. This number has continued to grow over the last few years (up 4% over 2012 and up 13% over 2011), indicating that property owners are finding long-term financial success in their rentals.
  • Reasons for Being a Corporate Housing Landlord. At an all-time high, 59% of corporate survey respondents said the reason they are corporate housing landlords is for the long-term investment.
  • Corporate Housing Terminology. Similar to last year, 75% of corporate survey respondents list their rentals as “corporate housing,” followed by 51% who list their properties as “furnished rentals.” After two years of seeing a decrease in the number of people who refer to their properties as “vacation rentals,” there was a slight 4% increase in that terminology.
