Independently owned corporate housing options are as unique as the people who own and manage them. From the basic offerings to higher end finishes to a more diverse location, with managed corporate housing you’ll find a property that is tailored made for your needs.
So, what should you look for when searching for a corporate rental? That depends on what is important to you in your stay, but here are five elements you should evaluate a property for:
– Does the property offer the lease terms and availability you require? Check the dates that the corporate rental is available to determine if its availability corresponds with your lease start time, length of stay and lease end date. Also, if you need more flexibility, like an open departure date, is the landlord flexible with the availability schedule to allow you to extend and end your stay as necessary?
– Does the asking rent fall within your budget? Whether your company is paying for your stay, or rent is coming out of your own pocket, everybody has a budget to stick to. However, posted prices may be flexible depending on the lease terms, length of stay, etc. So don’t eliminate the property without finding out if the landlord is flexible with the rate.
– Does the property offer the amenities and conveniences you are looking for? If security is important, you’ll want to be sure the property has controlled access. And if you’ll have two vehicles with you, does the community accommodate (or even charge for) that extra parking spot. Make a list of the little things in your life that you must have and cross-reference it with the property’s attributes.
– Does the property’s location match your needs? Location should be at the top of your check list. Making sure that a property is located in close proximity to your work, grocery stores, restaurants and, overall, with a setting that you feel comfortable in.
– Does the property size fit your requirements? If you are bringing the family with you or expecting visitors during your stay, you’ll not only want to be sure the property features enough bedrooms or sleeping space for its occupants, but also you’ll want to make sure that guests are okay with your landlord. The same goes for pets. If you’re bringing your cat or dog along for the stay, you’ll need to discuss whether this is permitted with the landlord and if there are extra fees involved as well.
American Express Business Travel gave me a call because their client wanted to know the positive ROI / Return on Investment they would get by having their travelers stay in a corporate housing residential rental vs staying in a hotel.
Great question! Of course there is never a simple answer. I have previously served on the US Advisory Council for ERC / Employee Relocation Council the association for workforce mobility and a study was presented that stated employees who had bad corporate relocations were 50% more likely to get divorced!
As we know, corporate housing is an essential element of a successful corporate relocation. When a company invests in transferring a valuable and talented employee from one market to another the transferee must get to the new city, get settled and be productive at work, as quickly as possible. This is accomplished through immediately having them comfortable in their new local living arrangements and corporate housing provides this. So the question is how do you calculate ROI on this?
If you would rather look at the pennies – let’s choose Downtown Denver as an option.
According to the 2018 Corporate Housing Annual Report by CHPA
1 Bedroom Corporate Housing property = $123.92 per night
2 Bedroom Corporate Housing property = $146.47 per night
3 Bedroom Corporate Housing property = $177.69 per night
I just ran a Google Search for Downtown Denver, CO Hotels and this is what I got:
$149 per night = Embassy Suites – 3.5 Stars
$223 per night = Crawford Hotel – 4.5 Stars
$400 per night = Four Seasons – 5 Stars
In the corporate housing industry we spend a lot of time talking about the “soft” benefits of staying in a corporate housing property, but the reality is the “hard cash” benefits are even greater.

Travel 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:
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. Once 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. People 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.

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.

The Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA) has compiled the six most frequently asked questions regarding corporate housing answered by several different corporate housing providers and they have allowed us to post these here:
“While most industries have rebounded and are making strides, the economic downturn created an entire class of new, innovative ventures – the new sharing economy. While local governments and communities continue to struggle with how this new paradigm impacts businesses and communities, business – and global mobility – moves on. Whether you need a ride, someone to care for your pets, or someplace to temporarily stay, how we get what we need, personally and professionally, is changing. In today’s ever-evolving business climate, corporate housing professionals remain a strong resource in the relocation industry.
We asked several corporate housing providers to clarify common questions of guests about what they offer in today’s marketplace…
- The industry average for temporary living is $140 per day. This equates to a $4,200 per month apartment and seems expensive. What comprises the rate?
When seeking quotes for corporate housing, guests are often tempted to compare this lodging option to extended stay hotel rates. While rates may be similar in some markets, they are vastly different in many others. Be sure to analyze that you are comparing like items. Simply comparing daily rate is comparing apples to oranges. Think beyond just a roof and a bed, and include all the items that make a house a home.
Included in the rate are housewares, linens, furniture, electronics, decor and lighting, and a single source for all utilities and customer service oversight. Other common and readily available services are cable television or satellite service, movie options, wireless internet and even local phone service and housekeeping. Corporate housing also includes many upscale amenities and services expected in how we live today as this housing is in a residential setting. Services such as grocery shopping, business centers, fitness centers, car services, and pet-friendly properties are readily available if needed in this temporary space.
When breaking down the cost of corporate housing even further to illustrate how all of the additional costs and expenses are factored into the price of the accommodation, the profit margins are very small and getting smaller as rents continue to increase. Outside of rent, the additional costs can be 50% or more of the total cost.
‘Factoring in all of the housewares and furniture plus the utilities, the net cost is more than double the base rent per month,’ Gavan James, CCHP, President and CEO of Nomad Temporary Housing explains. ‘Finally, they must have staff to administer their business, sell, set-up, clean and service the apartment and factor in vacancy cost for when the apartment is not rented. The net result is ofter a 5% profit margin on that apartment.’
With more square footage, more residential-type amenities, as well as access to all resident functions, corporate housing guests can participate in a community rather than just pass through a transient environment.
2. Why does availability change from day to day?
Availability fluctuations seem mysterious; however, the answer is simple. While there are many options when it comes to hotel choices, availability at apartment communities is at an all-time low across the country. Available inventory is often difficult to locate and once an apartment has been returned to the community, it might not be available to rent again. These communities are looking for long-term renters, so a returned apartment is often immediately re-leased.
‘Units are only offered once the guest gives a formal notice to depart. These notices are received on a daily basis, making those apartments available to the next renter,’ says Jeff Mahoney, Vice President of Global Business Development for Weichert Corporate Housing. ‘It is important to make a timely decision when an apartment is offered, or the apartment may be rented to another guest.’
3. Why can’t we get a volume discount for larger groups such as a summer intern group?
Corporate housing costs for expenses such as rent and utilities are fixed costs. They do not change regardless of the number of units a provider manages at a property. In addition, market forces can make offering discounts difficult, especially in summer months.
‘Apartment rents are higher during the busy summer months. Availability is also at a premium due to higher demand,’ explains Guy Cook, COO of SuiteAmerica. ‘Both of those forces pre-empt flexibility on price, even for large groups.’
Most corporate housing providers agree that given the length of stay and number of accommodations needed, some flexibility may apply. Proper planning and advanced notice can help inform your housing provider so they can review available apartments to offer a creative solution that could save you money.
‘Most companies would like to see their interns have housing at one location,’ says Pam Wade, CCHP, Vice President of Gables Corporate Accommodations and CHPA Chairman of the Board. ‘Strategically, it makes more sense to work with a provider that has inventory in the market the company needs and place the company associates at several locations.’
4. I need a place for a short stay for 30 or 60 days, why should I rent from a corporate housing provider instead of an online host, such as an AirBnB place? They seem cheaper and more hip.
With all the variables that come with relocating, it is often tempting for individuals to use an online marketplace to manage the housing portion of their relocation. As this is how most people are comfortable finding hotel accommodations, using this approach to finding longer-term housing seems like a logical next step. Individual searches for acceptable lodging can be risky and daunting; however, using a corporate housing provider can reduce the stress and liability of trusting strangers.
Corporate housing providers have a great deal of experience in providing everything a relocating individual or family needs. These professionally managed companies have a vested interest in making sure guests have a positive experience as their company’s reputation is at stake. ‘With a Code of Ethics, best practices training and a network of partners to provide a guest with what they need,’ says Samantha Elliott, CCHP, CRP, President of Preferred Corporate Housing, ‘partnering with a professional corporate housing provider alleviates risk.’ Online marketplaces come with more risk.
Security is certainly one of the major concerns for someone new to the area. This includes security of the property as it relates to the location as well as the safety and condition of the property itself. Apartments are zoned for the correct type of occupancy as well as abide by fire and safety codes. When using a personal residence found through an online marketplace, there is no guarantee the accommodation will be safe and secure.
‘Renting a small room in someone’s house or apartment might be fun for a few days,’ say Piper Ayala, CCHP, Vice President of ExecuStay Midwest. ‘But for extended stays, the comfort, convenience and spaciousness of a corporate apartment is a much better fit for corporate travelers.’
As online marketplaces do not monitor or regulate safety compliance for listings, it is the responsibility of the end user to properly assess the safety and condition of listings. This can be very difficult and time-consuming for guests. There are very few resources available that provide background information or inspection history for listing owners and their properties.
With all the variables that come with relocating, finding knowledgeable expertise to ensure a smooth transition is critical to avoiding an expensive ‘bad’ decision. The majority of individual postings on web aggregator sites do not have experienced mobility professionals to help relocate individuals and families globally. Look for professionals that hold designations from various organizations, including ERC certifications, that reflect their dedication and knowledge in the industry.
Just as relying on online marketplaces can be risky, so can expecting to use extended stay hotels for short-term stays. While there may be some availability, they may not be able to accommodate a guest for the duration of their stay.
‘When comparing corporate housing to hotels, keep in mind that hotels may not be able to offer 30 or 60 consecutive days,’ explains Wade. ‘If there are other events going on in a market (sporting events, conventions, etc.), there may already be weeks or weekends booked months in advance.’
5. Typically, the minimum length of stay in corporate housing is often 30 days, based on local and/or legal restrictions. When and why is a shorter length of stay acceptable? What is the maximum length of stay?
Corporate housing is governed at the local level. Many times, local regulations prohibit stays of less than 30 days. Shorter term stays for less than 30 days may be available where it is legal. Your professional corporate housing provider can advise on this issue on a per market basis. Conversely, guests can frequently stay in corporate housing indefinitely depending on availability, allowing for flexibility for extended assignments.
‘We consistently monitor and stay informed on the local laws and legal restrictions as it relates to the minimum stays in our markets,’ says Billy Cochran, Director of Operations for TP Corporate Lodging. ‘While there are frequently minimum stay requirements, guests can often stay in their accommodation as long as it is available and frequently can extend their stays.’
6. Why do I need to give a 30 day notice to depart a temporary apartment? A hotel does not require this.
A notable difference between hotels and corporate housing is the notice to depart. While hotels typically don’t require any type of notice that a guest is leaving, corporate housing typically requires 30 days’ notice. Corporate housing companies manage their inventory by controlling their vacant apartments. Keeping vacancy low allows them to offer competitive rates, keeping the rates reasonable for guests.
‘An extended stay hotel allows guests to depart without notice; however, they would charge significantly more per day for a comparably sized apartment alternative,’ says James. ‘Corporate housing providers ask for a 30 day notice so they have time to re-rent the apartment and avoid a vacancy.’
With more housing options today than ever before, the answers to these questions are critical to a successful temporary stay. Understanding the reality of today’s marketplace will help set expectations and ensure a smooth transition by alleviating stress. One way to do this is to partner with a qualified corporate housing provider for all of your needs.”
