4 Tips for Planning a Successful Business Trip

The below was contributed by Gemma Vine:

Business TravelTravel is an important aspect of many successful businesses – and can be one of the most rewarding parts of your working life! However, there are plenty of things which one should think about before packing bags and departing. We’ve got you covered in regards to accommodation with our comfortable and convenient corporate housing, but temporary housing isn’t the only thing you might want to consider. Here are a few tips which might help you plan your next business trip:

Corporate Housing Business Travel

All of our fully furnished rentals are all real residential properties with fully stocked kitchens, high quality linens, full living rooms, and other amenities. Establish Your Objectives

 

Establish Objectives.   It’s really important to get clear in your mind the reasons behind your trip and what you want to gain from it. This will help you manage your time more effectively. Doing some research into your objectives will also be of great use when you reach your destination – when you know what you want, you will also have a better idea of who to seek out and meet with when you arrive. You will be able to look at anything you’re researching with a more educated eye. Knowing what you’re doing when you arrive is a great time saver and will also lend you the confidence which comes with prior knowledge.

 

Cover Your Back.   Travel is exciting and provides boundless opportunities for business growth but it can also bring certain risks with it. If you want to make sure that you and your business are prepared for all eventualities, have a look at your business insurance policies before you go. You might find, for example, that your corporate health insurance doesn’t cover you if you fall sick while traveling. Hopefully, of course, you won’t ever need to use these fail safes, but it’s best to be protected just in case. Also, if you’re coming from overseas, it’s a good idea to learn the location of your embassies in the event that you need to avail their services.

Do Your Research.   Business Travel ConnectionsOnce you’ve established your objectives, you can further streamline your time and make your trip generally more efficient by researching the people and places you want to meet and/or go. In this age of the internet, it doesn’t take long to do a bit of background research, which will ensure that you’re hitting the ground running, so to speak, when you arrive. Of course, business research is an essential component of any good business, so it’s likely that you already have the requisite skills! Seeking out some expertise from people who know the area and/or the people and places you’ll be visiting also makes for a great research opportunity. The more you know before you go, the more time-efficient your trip will be, leaving you with more time to enjoy yourself! The people you’re meeting are likely to be impressed if you’ve taken the time to learn a bit about them and what they do, which may in turn bring about a favorable result for your trip!

Enjoy Yourself!   Business trips don’t need to be all about hard work. In fact, if you’re actively enjoying yourself, you may find that the work is much more productive. Enjoy Your Business TripPeople who are relaxed, happy, and not stressed are generally better workers than people who are harried, pressured, and miserable. People who present a happy persona in meetings are also more likely to leave a good impression and come away from the table with their objectives completed. And, of course, the best way to present a happy persona is to actually be happy!

Business travel is a fantastic opportunity to see the world and have some fun, so be sure to let your hair down a little, take in the sights and experiences of the places you’re visiting, and generally have a great time! It will not only be great for you, it’ll be great for the business as well.

Corporate Housing is Not Part of the Shared Economy and CHBO has the Data to Prove it – CHBO Launches 7th Annual CHBO Corporate Housing Real Estate Survey

As smart investors look to diversify their real estate and investment portfolios more property owners are turning to monthly corporate housing rentals as the best way to adhere to real estate rental laws, minimize time needed to manage a property and maximizing rental income opportunities.

DENVER, Nov. 15th, 2015 – Corporate Housing rentals have been an essential lodging solution for more than half a century and should not be inadvertently lumped into the new trends and restrictions of today’s “shared economy” and CHBO has the data to prove it. For the 7th year CHBO is launching the CHBO Corporate Housing Real Estate Survey to document the trends, standards and needs for this monthly furnished lodging solution.

Successful corporate housing property owners and managers have found that investment and management trends reported in the CHBO Corporate Housing Real Estate Report are essential tools for their financial success. Did you know that 2 out of 3 corporate housing landlords say their tenants stayed on average 3 months or longer? CHBO also found that last year 17% of the properties were rented for a year or longer.

The 7th annual CHBO Corporate Housing Real Estate Survey will provide insights into:

  • Pricing trends for monthly, furnished corporate housing
  • Average security deposit fees charged by corporate housing landlords
  • Required length of stays in the monthly corporate housing rental marketplace
  • Pet policies for furnished housing
  • Predictions and corporate housing landlords sentiments about the future

The survey is broken into 8 main sections: Property Owners – Who, What, Where, Why and When; Outlook and Profitability; Rental Rates; Property Management Trends; Rental Properties; Tenants; Pets and Marketing Trends.

Independent property owners and managers of corporate housing rentals are invited to complete the survey online. Data is being collected through December 15, 2015 and findings will be reported on January 15th, 2016.  The 2015 CHBO Corporate Housing Real Estate Report is offered FREE to all survey participants.

“CHBO Members continue to ask for more facts and figures to make them the most profitable corporate housing providers. The CHBO Team continues to hear from our members about how much this information allows them to make the right choices when it comes to investing in, marketing and managing their corporate housing rentals,” says Kimberly Smith, co-founder and CEO of CHBO.

Real estate investing is back and the trends are showing more real estate growth potential. As smart investors look to diversify their real estate and investment portfolios more property owners are turning to monthly corporate housing rentals as the best way to adhere to real estate rental laws, minimize time needed to manage a property and maximizing rental income opportunities.

The results of this survey will be used to develop the 2015 CHBO Corporate Housing Real Estate Report, which will provide corporate housing landlords, real estate professionals, real estate investors and property managers needed data, emerging trends and insights about everything from how to better promote rental properties, to how to improve the way they furnish and market their rental properties. Historically, responses were received from property owners across the United States and around the world.

New Owners Grow AvenueWest Denver Managed Corporate Housing Franchise; Growth on New Franchisees’ Minds

Since 2001, Angela Healy worked for AvenueWest Corporate Housing in Denver – helping founders, Kimberly and Eric Smith, manage their financials and run the day-to-day operations. Angela was pivotal in helping AvenueWest grow and find success over the years – including early on in the business when the company took a financial hit in the failing economy. Over the years, Angela helped the Smiths create the AvenueWest Managed Corporate Housing Franchise model and even assisted with the on-boarding of the franchisee team in Colorado Springs.

Along the way, Angela learned that Kimberly and Eric’s long-term plans were to eventually franchise the Denver market.

“When I told Tim [my husband] that AvenueWest Denver was available for purchase as a franchise, he said, ‘Have you ever thought of us buying Denver?’ I’d been working in the business for so long that it made sense that I would be the perfect successor,” says Angela. “The best part was that my husband had always wanted to own a business – so it was truly the right fit for us to do together.”

Kimberly says that Angela was a natural fit to take over the business given her experience and deep corporate housing knowledge.

“Between her strong corporate housing background experience and Tim’s impressive business acumen and entrepreneurial desires, Eric and I knew they were the right team to take over the Denver market,” says Kimberly.

AvenueWest Denver Changes Hands

 In 2010, the Healys officially purchased the AvenueWest Denver franchise, thus beginning their journey as corporate housing entrepreneurs.

After taking over AvenueWest Denver, the Healys became iron-focused on their mission: To match those seeking corporate housing in Denver with those offering furnished, short-term rental properties.

“We are lucky to live in Denver as we get to cater to a variety of people in need of corporate housing, from business professionals and traveling consultants to relocating employees, traveling healthcare professionals, on-assignment military personnel, traveling theater companies and more,” says Tim.

The State of Denver’s Corporate Housing Market

Angela and Tim add that Denver is traditionally a high-demand market for corporate housing, and they don’t see that changing anytime soon.

“While we are currently seeing a lot of clients sell their properties because it’s a hot seller’s market, at the same time we are adding new clients who are looking for a competitive advantage when it comes to managing and marketing their unique furnished properties available for rent,” says Angela.

One of the ways Angela and Tim say they maintain steady inventory throughout market fluctuations is by offering great customer service, competitive pricing, unique properties, and win-win partnerships with those who own properties in desirable locations.

“We manage about 30 properties in The Spire (891 14th St. Denver), an upscale condo community in downtown Denver that offers panoramic views of the city and resort-style amenities. We are able to offer these properties to discerning individuals and groups who want to experience Denver’s culture and vibrant downtown scene while traveling to the Mile High City,” says Tim.

Steep Learning Curve

While Tim had little corporate housing experience when he took over AvenueWest Denver in 2011, he says he has since undergone a steep learning curve.

“At first corporate housing was like speaking a foreign language,” he says, “But today it feels like a natural progression in my career and offers me the flexibility I desire to balance my family-life with my professional-life.”

Above all, Tim says that having AvenueWest as the backdrop of their franchise gives them the name recognition and instant trust in the industry.

“Partnering with an award-winning, well-respected name in corporate housing not only brings us high quality referrals, but also helps us solidify relationships with new prospects who have come to know and trust the AvenueWest brand for more than a decade,” says Tim.

_11278Ready to take charge of her career, Hartman jumped on this new business venture, with encouragement from her long-time confidant, Mark Vost, who today helps Hartman run the company’s day-to-day operations.
