When it comes to finding temporary housing, everyone’s personal needs are different, that is why you need to look for a company that works for you. There are several companies that offer “corporate housing” but not every company will provide the services that you might need when it comes to finding housing for yourself or your employees. To avoid choosing the wrong service provider, consider this checklist to help ensure that your corporate housing provider offers you the services you need.
It can be easy to spot companies that offer a more personalized service by asking: how easy is it for you to talk to a real person? A reputable corporate housing provider will develop a relationship with their clients right away. You should be provided with a representative who will personally handle your file from beginning to end. If you find yourself shuffled around or have difficulty talking to a real person, find another company!
There are several furnished housing companies out there that are trying get a piece of the corporate market, but a real corporate housing company will understand the needs of their clientele, beyond just housing. Services offered by corporate housing companies can range from relocation advice to concierge services, with a focus on taking care of their clients, not just taking their money. When you are looking for a corporate housing provider, pay attention to what kind of services they offer.
Sometimes just taking a look at the website will be enough to gage if you are working with professionals. The main things to look for are straightforward information, high-quality photographs, and a personal touch. A professional corporate housing company will provide virtual tours, videos, and plenty of information about their apartments. Some companies will also have a social media presence where you can find reviews and feedback from other clients using their services.
