What exactly IS “corporate housing?”

It’s a question we’re asked on a regular basis – especially when trying to tell our friends what it is that we do – “What IS corporate housing?” “What does that even mean?” or “Wait, WHAT kind of housing?”

According to Wikipedia [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporate_housing], “corporate housing is a term in the travel industry meaning renting out a furnished apartment, condo or house on a temporary basis to individuals, military personnel or corporations as an alternative to a traditional hotel or an extended hotel stay.” In layman’s terms – when we say we’re “experts” in corporate housing, we mean that we are skilled in setting up furnished housing for those who are in need of a temporary home.

When you walk into a corporate apartment, you can expect your accommodations to be clean, well maintained and immediately operational. Your power will be turned on, the cable and wireless internet will be installed and ready to go, the couch will be yours to get cozy on after a long trip. Even your linens and kitchen amenities will be prepared for your arrival. In essence, you’ll be walking into a fully functional home-away-from-home.

Many people try to compare a corporate apartment to an extended stay hotel, however, corporate housing apartments offer some major advantages. From the ability to end the constant cycle of unpacking and re-packing a suitcase every time you check in and out of an extended stay hotel, the more “home-like” lifestyle a furnished apartment provides, and the added bonus of having your own washer and dryer in your apartment – not to mention the extra space and more economical cost of corporate housing, the choice becomes a no-brainer.
