Corporate housing rentals have become a popular alternative to hotels. If you aren’t familiar with the idea, people utilize them for many reasons – business trips, temporary relocation and extended vacations, to name a few. Here are three aspects of a quality corporate rental:

1. Furnished Space

One of the first things you should find out from a corporate housing provider is whether or not the location is furnished or unfurnished. Most corporate rentals are temporary. Many renters also don’t want to take the time to move big furniture pieces to a temporary space. However, in some cases of extended stay, you may want the comforts of your own furniture. Either way, know beforehand what household and furniture items you will need and which ones will be provided for you.

2. Lease Flexibility

Many renters looking for short-term corporate housing aren’t sure where they will be in a year! This isn’t a bad thing, it might just reflect the nature of your job or situation. Most people in situations like this don’t want more than a six-month lease. Month-to-month leases are ideal. Whatever your needs, ask your renter if they can be flexible with lease options.

3. Location

The location of your rental is very important, and it all depends on what you’re trying to accomplish. Some want a quiet neighborhood where they can work from home, others prefer a location with a short commute to their office building and if you’re vacationing, you may want to be near the beach, mountains or urban centers. Regardless of your motives, don’t overlook the importance of location!
