10 Things to Know About Short Term Rentals, Pt 2

Can I just call to let someone know when I’m leaving?

No. Send your notice in writing! Your lease requires it. In writing can mean a physical letter sent to the provider, or an email. Check with your provider to make sure they will accept email. The notice becomes effective on the date the notice was received by the provider. Get confirmation from your provider that they received it,    DON’T TEXT! Text does not serve as official notification.   short term no call

 

What are all these fees?

Apartment communities charge various fees for the application. There can be an application fee and an admin fee. Additionally, there are installation fees for cable, electricity, and other utilities. Is your security deposit refundable? That’s important to know, too. Your corporate housing provider will often include all those fees in your monthly rental charge, so you just write one check every month. Stress free, right?

I don’t want to move my furniture twice. What about furniture rentals?

Furniture rentals for individuals can be pricey. Unless your company has an account with a nationwide furniture rental company, you will pay more for furniture. When you work with a corporate housing provider, you will get a better deal on furniture that is included in your package.

Should I get renter’s insurance?

Renter’s insurance is always a good idea. In your furnished apartment, your provider is responsible for the furnishings and housewares, however your personal property is not. It often costs just a few dollars a month, to have peace of mind that you are covered.

I can save money by setting up my own temporary home, right?

Of course! You could, but every choice has a hidden cost. There is the cost of time: the time you spend coordinating the utilities, the cable, furniture rental. Time from work to oversee the delivery of rented furniture and installing the cable. Instead, you could be using that to focus on your work or taking care of your family. The choice is yours!

THE BENEFITS OF CORPORATE HOUSING: A TRAVELER MUST KNOW

Due to the increasing demands of the world today, business and travel have been greatly on the rise. On the other hand, some business trips last for weeks or even longer. Prolonged stay in a hotel room is not always the best setting for business managers and leaders.  The longer the stay, the more they would long for a place that will make them feel close to home. This is the main reason why corporate housing is also experiencing an enormous growth. Corporate housing as defined by Corporate Housing Inc. as a “furnished apartment, condominium or house made available for rent or let on a temporary basis, primarily for 30 days or more.” There are a number of benefits why corporate housing is an excellent choice when one is travelling for quite some time. Here are the top 5 benefits we can think of.

  • Good Location

Most of the corporate housing units are situated in the heart of the major cities. This eliminates   the need for long hours spent on commuting and just be readily accessible to the commercial areas.

  • Equipped, fully furnished

One of the many good things about corporate housing is that the units are complete. This would typically include the furniture, full kitchen, private bath, linens, housewares, electronics and utilities. Housekeeping services may also be available. This makes one’s stay hassle- free and more comfortable!

  • Cost-effective

The company is usually, if not at all times, is held responsible for the expenditures of business trips. Hence, the goal is to get affordable terms without having to sacrifice the comfort of the employees and this is what corporate housing is all about. Everything you need at a lower cost!

  • Better living conditions

After a long day at work, you would want to be in a warm and relaxing environment rather than be in an impersonal hotel room. Guests can do their own cooking which saves them from expensive dinners.

  • Feeling of being home

It always feels great to be home! It doesn’t really mean that when you’re travelling, you won’t be able to attain that feeling anymore. The atmosphere that corporate housing units have are aimed to keep this feeling even when you’re away. No one wants to travel and be lonely anyway.

We at Capri Temporary Housing understand the overwhelming task of finding temporary housing in a place you’ve never been before and we’re here to help. Call us at 800-258-3959 to see about your next hassle free stay anywhere in the United States.
