Short-term Housing for Professionals

A lot of professionals are on the road all of the time trying to help their company reach new regional marks. Sometimes these professionals are forced to be away from their hometowns and from their families for longer than thirty days and this is a difficult ask. It’s super hard to be away from your home for thirty or more days. But at least there are good options nowadays for these traveling workers as far as accommodations go. Now professionals are not forced to live out of their suitcases in a cramped hotel room. They can instead take advantage of smaller leases at short-term housing spaces that are furnished and well appointed. (I’ve been to West Texas for nine months before and found Lubbock short-term furnished housing to stay in for an affordable price.)

Here’s what to look for when you are booking this sort of short-term housing:

  1. How attentive is the management staff in regards to your needs? You should be able to tell right away when something is amiss by watching how professional the management teams are. Ask them how their maintenance teams work and how fast that broken things get fixed.
  2. What amenities are on site? Does the short-term housing have a pool? Does it have in house washers and dryers and if not, do they have a laundry spot on site? Is there a workout room open to the guests? Is cable or Direct TV included in the price or do you have to buy it separately? Are mailboxes on site? Etc.
  3. How old is the furniture in the room? Has it all been thoroughly cleaned since the last tenant was there? Were there pets in the apartment they want to put you into? Are there any newly reconditioned apartments available for you to choose?

Those are the main questions I made sure to ask during my last stay and I was glad I did. I looked at several of the short-term housing options and the only ones that fit into my standards were Home Style Suites and At Home Corporate Suites. They provided amazing places to stay for world-weary working travelers like me.

So, what do you think? Have you ever had to make use of these sorts of short-term housing units? What companies did you think were best? What kinds of questions did you ask of these companies so that you wouldn’t be surprised when you got there?

Let me know. I’m sure I’ll be sent out again shortly. I don’t want to miss out on the best places to live in my temporary state.
