DENVER, November 15, 2012 - To help landlords of furnished housing gain insights into industry trends as well as understand how such trends can help shape how they manage their properties, CorporateHousingbyOwner.com (CHBO) today announces the kick-off of its fourth annual "by owner" corporate housing survey. CHBO is a website that connects private landlords with those in need of furnished, short-term rentals.
The survey results will be used to develop the 2012 By Owner Corporate Housing Annual Report, which will provide corporate housing landlords, real estate professionals and property managers useful information and insights about everything from how to better promote their rental properties to how to improve the way they furnish their for-rent properties.
An independent property owner or any manager of short-term furnished rentals is invited and encouraged to complete the survey online. Data is being collected now through December 15, 2012 and findings will be reported on January 15, 2013 and published in the 2012 By Owner Corporate Housing Annual Report.
"We believe the findings of this survey will be useful to anyone currently managing or marketing a rental property, whether it be a corporate rental or vacation rental property," says Kimberly Smith, founder and CEO of CHBO. "Simply understanding how other corporate housing landlords are pricing, marketing and managing their properties, for example, can offer crucial insights and takeaways that other landlords can emulate in their own efforts."
The fourth annual by owner corporate housing survey will provide insights into:
-Pricing trends for short-term, furnished housing
-Average security deposit fees charged by corporate housing landlords
-Required length of stays in the short-term rental marketplace
-Pet policies for furnished housing
-"By owner" corporate housing landlord sentiment about the future
Complete the survey at this link. The first 50 people to complete the survey will receive a $5 Amazon.com gift card and all entrants will be entered to receive a free Kindle Fire courtesy of CHBO. Winner will be chosen at random from those that complete the survey. All emails collected will be kept confidential.
