What is Corporate Rental?

Corporate Rental is high-level furnished housing with a flexible lease of 2-12 months, and includes amenities such as internet and utilities. Tenants are typically business clients, professionals relocating, and people going through transitions such as remodeling.

Who invests in corporate rental? People like Ed Collins.

Ed returned to real estate investment last year after a 20-year hiatus with the goal of buying and selling rental properties he could flip for a profit every two-five years.

I recommended a property that had recently been gutted and renovated, and Ed agreed to it right away. He appreciated its excellent condition, since he wouldn’t have to worry about the hiring process of fixing it up.

“Julie helped manage the closing, the move-in, and the advertising, and she qualified the first renters. She basically handled everything. I had to do very little, if anything.”

Ed’s property was an instant success: we had a qualified renter waiting for the property before we even put it on the market. It’s been rented consistently since then, and the cash-flow has been positive since day one. I advised him to ask tenants for a higher down payment than normal, and it was effective.

“Julie is an expert in market analysis, and that’s very important in knowing what the market will bear for monthly rentals.”

Ed appreciated my close connection to the Austin market and my understanding of both buyers’ and sellers’ needs. 

“Our renters come from all over, but a lot come from California for 2-3 months to work in a business environment. Whereas otherwise they’d have to live in a hotel or motel, they find it more attractive to live in a single-family residence.”

Corporate Rental investors benefit from high-level tenants, 30-40% higher monthly rental amounts resulting in better cash flow, and well-maintained properties.

If you’re intrigued by the expanding Corporate Rental market, give me a call! I’d be happy to answer your questions and work together to figure out the right path for you.

Who are the tenants of Corporate Rentals?

Phil and Sam met in Montana and moved to Wyoming after marrying. Their jobs recently compelled them to move to Austin, and they needed a suitable living environment while they finalized the sale of their home in Wyoming and searched for a new home here in Texas.

Excited about their prospects for a future in Austin, they connected with me while searching for temporary housing.

“Julie made the transition to temporary housing very simple. We felt very comfortable with the change and the housing situation. Julie was at the rental upon our arrival to make sure we had everything we needed and to walk us through the property. She also helped us in our initial search for homes by listening to our wants and needs and creating a personalized list that met our criteria and were in locations which would work for us both professionally and personally.”

Their stay in a corporate rental helped alleviate much of the stress of moving across the country. They were able to leave their belongings in storage and live in a furnished home while searching for a permanent option.

“We would recommend this experience to others. The furnished corporate rental has really helped simplify our transition to Austin. We can’t wait to continue our life here in our newly purchased home, and we hope this rental helps others transition to their lives in Austin as it did for us.”
