Short term corporate housing offers the perfect option for those who are traveling to another city for work, for a duration of more than 2 weeks. Anything under 2 weeks and you can survive in a hotel, but over the longer period of time it makes much more sense to get somewhere which is more comfortable, and where you feel more at home. There are many things to consider when looking for short term corporate housing, which we are going to take a look into today.

If you are heading off to work away from home, here is what you need to be on the lookout for when you search for corporate housing.

Location, Location, Location

The location is going to be just as important as the place itself, and what you are looking for here is a fine balance between being close to your place of work and also close to the amenities. Given that you are not moving to this new city, you shouldn’t have to go through the hassle of trying to learn how to get around. You need somewhere which is a stone;’s throw from some fun activities and some eating and drinking options, which is also not too far from the office.

Style and In-House Amenities

The actual style of the property is unlikely to be a deal breaker if you have found the perfect location, but it is of course something to consider. After all the reason as to why you will not be staying in a hotel is that you are seeking somewhere which feels more homely, so style will certainly still be a factor. On top of this you need to consider the in-house amenities which are going to be on offer. Consider what the kitchen options are like, the laundry room, whether the space has a gym in the building and what other benefits you may be offered.

Reviews and Testimonials

Before you decide upon a place it is always shrewd to check first what other people who have stayed there are saying. For example you may find that the place looks great and is well situated, but the management team aren’t good or that the cleanliness is not up to scratch. he devil as they say, is very much in the details and that is especially true when it comes to shopping around for a corporate rental.


Rules vary with regards to corporate housing and what you can and can’t do once you are inside. This again is something which you should keep an eye out for. Let’s say you wanted a friend to visit or to bring your pet, you should always check first to see if these are possible options for you. The last thing that you want to do is assume that things will be alright and then learn that they are not, so be sure to check.

Invest time in finding the right rental for you.
