Corporate Rental Rescources

Hi Everyone.  I have a condo in a very nice area of Atlanta.  Location is PRIME with Mercedes Benz headquarters and many other big corp companies in the vicinity.  It's remodeled and furnished with a king and queen beds.  It's sad that it sits vacant!  I stay there about 10 days every quarter and NEVER when the temperature is below 60 degrees.  I was considering using this for a 30 day/ 90 day type corporate rental.  I have ZERO desire to do "turns" and run this like an air b&b hotel.  In addition, it is my second home, so I keep clothes and some personal belongings there.  I have only ever worked with buyers, sellers, & investors so I don't have the slightest idea where to find tenants, corporate renters or where I would even start to find prospects for this saturation.  Any advice? 

Atlanta, Georgia

You should definitely check out Furnished Finder, they are a marketplace with a pretty broad audience of travel nurses, traveling professionals, insurance companies etc. I would also consider simply using Airbnb/VRBO as an advertising platform but setting your minimum stay to 30/60/90 days. The tenants would still be those expecting medium-term stays but the reach on those platforms would help your exposure.

A lot of people list their mid term rental properties on the STR platforms with a 30 day minimum.

I have not had any luck with corporate clientele. My rentals appeal a great deal to academics but not corporate visitors. I think that has a lot to do with my husband's and my tastes in design and furnishings. So I don't have a lot of worthwhile advice. I do know that a lot of our local corporate MTR housing is being furnished by luxury apartment buildings and local hotels. I don't know what platforms they use to advertise their units to this market.

If there is a nearby university, I recommend advertising on Sabbatical Homes (sabbaticalhomes.com) and the university off-campus housing site.

Contact their HR department and make that connection. They'll be happy to have you as a resource.

In your area and considering the type of guests you want to attract, I'd look into corporatehousingbyowner
