There’s no place like home when it comes to providing a comfortable, welcoming place for tenants and a stress-free rental experience for landlords. The prospect of property management can be daunting, whether you’re an experienced landlord or just beginning to consider renting out your property. Corporate housing companies can make the journey from homeowner to landlord a little easier.

Explore these 5 Benefits to Corporate Housing Companies vs. Individual Tenants

1.) Professional Advantage, Expert Results

Renting out your property is a fantastic source of secondary income. However, with a traditional landlord-tenant arrangement, your side hustle may quickly become a full-time job.

For those who are looking to earn passive income and test the waters of the rental business, working through a corporate housing company is a must. You will receive the benefit of industry knowledge and professional expertise from lease agreements to daily maintenance. The finer details such as security deposits, background checks, and contracts are taken care of. This is ideal for landlords who don’t live nearby, as well as those looking to streamline property management and take a more hands-off approach. 

The difference of a concierge service guarantees guests have a positive rental experience, while owners can rest easy knowing their properties are in good hands.

2.) Five Star Tenants

Every landlord’s nightmare is the tenant from hell. Fears of property damage, broken lease agreements, and late payments keep even the most real estate savvy owners up at night. Much like vampires and other urban legends, inviting the right one in can be a perilous undertaking.

Create the community your guests deserve. Corporate housing offers the advantage of attracting working professionals, providing a targeted demographic for ideal renters. Renters are typically more settled, mature, and business-minded as opposed to noisy or party prone. In addition, short term corporate stays are a high demand segment of the housing market. Furnished apartments in Toronto are much preferred for a comfortable extended stay. These kinds of properties attract a thriving, diverse crowd that will quickly become a legendary neighbourhood.

3.) Easy Communications

Landlords often find themselves wearing many different hats. For long-distance property owners, providing fast, efficient, and direct communications with their tenants can be tricky.

Corporate housing arrangements take the hassle out of rentals. Rather than managing individual tenants, property owners work with a single entity. Residents receive personal communications and quick answers courtesy of their corporate housing authority rather than direct communications between landlord and individual. This is an ideal solution for managing multiple complexes.

4.) Business Rentals are a Smart Investment

Corporate housing is typically more profitable than traditional, residential rentals, particularly when it comes to long term, temporary housing solutions. A minimum 30-day agreement is perfect for capturing this demographic. The ideal unit rent should be 40-50% less than the benchmark hotel for a month’s stay, along with the promise of amenities that far exceed a tedious hotel stay.

Professionals will want to feel at home, even for a short term residence. Furnishings, gym access, and proximity to coffee shops, parks, and restaurants are all fabulous ways to attract tenants. A business community can easily increase rental profits by 2-3x that of traditional residential complexes and long term leases.

5.) High Turnover, No Problem

We’ve address the profitability of renting to corporate tenants. Now it’s time to look at the beauty of the short term lease. 

It may seem counter-intuitive to those getting started in the property rental business, but long term lease arrangements may not be the best fit or the most lucrative. Short term arrangements offer flexibility for both tenants and owners. In addition, landlords receive the added benefit of higher revenue for a shorter arrangement. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Rest assured that we are closely monitoring the situation and taking steps to protect our team members and guests as the situation continues to evolve.

Business Continuity

Our first step was to invoke our Business Continuity Plan. We are entirely digital and do not rely on any manual processes. We are also completely cloud-based and diversified through our use of Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. Our office team is mobile-ready and has access to all critical infrastructure, including our cloud-based phone and booking systems. Rest assured - we are prepared to continue serving you.

Flexible Cancellations

For any new reservations booked directly with us, and until April 30, 2020, the booking can be cancelled at any time before arrival and with no cancellation fee.

New Arrivals

Toronto Public Health announced enhanced measures to protect the public on March 13, 2020, and are currently in effect until April 5, 2020. Anyone who has travelled from anywhere outside Canada, including the United States, is asked to self-isolate and avoid contact with others for 14 days.

For All Stays

Weekly Touch Up Service

For your safety and ours, weekly touch up service is cancelled until April 30, 2020. We encourage guests to utilize the ensuite washer and dryer to launder their linens and towels. For guests wishing to receive fresh linens, please send a request through Guest Services, and we will arrange to pick up your used linens (left in a bag at the front door inside the suite) and drop off fresh linen for you to use.

Our Commitment to High Cleaning Standards

We have always utilized commercial hospitality-grade cleaning procedures and supplies. We use specialized chemicals for different surfaces to ensure optimal disinfection. We also use new gloves and separate microfibre cleaning cloths for each suite to prevent cross-contamination. Any linens or cleaning cloths supplies by us have been professionally sanitized at a large commercial laundry facility.

Suite Visits by Guest Services & Maintenance

Until April 30, 2020, we will not conduct any suite tours for prospective guests, nor will any of our Maintenance or Guest Services team members visit occupied suites for any issues other than those relating to essential services.

We recognize that these are challenging times. Like many before it, this too will pass, and together we will get through it. Know that we are working around the clock to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable stay. We remain at your service 24/7 should you have any questions or concerns.

Yours in hospitality.
