Corporate housing firms were first designed to offer relocating employees apartments that were fully furnished. These apartments came with WiFi, cable, furniture, linens, and pots and pans, and they were more spacious than the cramped rooms found in hotels, according to travel expert Brian Ferdinand in a recently released article. However, corporate housing firms have evolved over the years, catering to more than just employees who are relocating. Here is a look at other ways that corporate housing has been used in recent years.
Teachers and Students
In the recent article, Brian Ferdinand, who is the managing partner of CorpHousing Group, explains that corporate housing companies have come in handy for teachers who have to lecture in faraway cities for an entire semester. Likewise, this type of housing is ideal for international students seeking temporary housing close to campus. Thus, corporate housing can be just as handy in the education field as it is in the corporate sector.
Patients and Traveling Health Care Workers
In addition to helping relocating workers, instructors, and students, corporate housing can help patients who are undergoing medical treatment in a distant city. A furnished corporate housing unit features plenty of space and amenities for both the patient and his or her family members. In addition, because these types of housing units are often located in city centers, you can easily use them to access a hospital or other treatment facility located in an urban area.
Just as patients can take advantage of a corporate housing unit’s amenities and location, health care workers can also enjoy these corporate housing perks. When they are finished working lengthy shifts as traveling health care workers, for example, they can quickly get to their temporary homes and relax, prepare some dinner, and hit the sack to prepare for another day of delivering patient care.
Moving To a New Home, Or Undergoing Home Construction
Let’s say that you suddenly need to move out of your home and are searching for a temporary place to stay until you can find a new home. Or, perhaps you’re selling your house and it sells much more quickly than expected, which means you need a temporary home right away. Or, maybe you need a temporary home while your real home is under construction/renovation. In any of these scenarios, a corporate housing unit can meet your need by flexibly bridging the gap between your former home and your future home.
