7 Factors to Look for When You are Setting up Temporary Housing

Do you need temporary housing? Thinking about setting up your own? Here are some considerations for setting up a temporary furnished apartment.

Gated Apartment Community in Eagle Pass

Gated apartment communities like this one provide security for travelers seeking temporary housing.

 

1. Where do we look?

Location is an important consideration. When you are new to the community, go to the Chamber of Commerce to find out the nicer neighborhoods in town. When you are setting up for yourself to save money, you want to find locations that are safe and provide security. It may be necessary to spend a little more, but in the end, it will be worth it.

 

 

2. How many people do you need to house?

If you are looking to house a group of people, the sooner you start, the better. Companies that have a large contingent to find housing, can often put 2 people in a 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment and provide almost the same amount of privacy as 2 hotel rooms. This can save your company money and give everyone their privacy.

Be sure to check out your utility company options. Be sure to ask about deposits. Many time, corporate housing providers have included these costs in your rent.

3. How long will you be working in the area?
Often people come to us looking for short term leases. Most landlords and apartment communities require leases of 6 months or more. If that is the case, you could end up spending more money on rent alone than in finding an already furnished unit. Be sure to ask for the minimum length of lease before proceeding with your plans. This can be a very important consideration for your budget.

4. How do I connect utilities?

When setting up your own temporary housing, you will need to get the names of utility providers. In some locations, one company may have the monopoly. In other places, you may have a choice. Taking the time to research is important to be sure to get the best rates. Many companies rely on local corporate housing providers who already have established relationships with local vendors to get services set up quickly with the best pricing. The choice is always yours.

5. What about cable and internet?

Setting up cable and internet is extremely important. I’m covering this separately becomes these services have become indispensable. In remote locations, they provide entertainment and connection with the outside world. Without these luxuries, workers can feel isolated, which affects their perception of the job. Unfortunately, these 2 services are tied together and require people present for installation or repair issues. While it seems like you save money by doing it yourself, the cost of handling glitches in services can often be precious hours that you can be doing something else. Having a third party at the location acting on your behalf can save you time and stress.

6. Have you considered furniture rental?

Many locations have local Aaron’s Rent to Own or Rent-A-Center. Check with these vendors for furniture delivery. Often, these companies have used furniture you can rent at a discount. Corporate accounts are often available for companies, too. Sometimes, it can be worth the extra cost to have someone else handle these details for you. Corporate housing companies specialize in taking care of these little details.http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photography-3d-man-moving-furniture-image16411157

7. How about housewares?

These you can purchase locally or have your employees bring their own. Some people do have their own kits, because of all the travel they do. Depending on your location, having someone locally who can take care of placing the linens can be a great benefit and time saver.

Sometimes, it makes sense to do it yourself. We understand that. But when you want to leave all the details to someone who is on site to take care of your people, then finding a corporate housing provider to take care of valued employees can make even more sense.
