When you’re moving to a new city for work, it can be difficult to find a place to live while you’re still juggling all the intricacies of relocation. Corporate housing can be a godsend while you look for a place of your own, but what factors should go into your decision?
You’ll want somewhere close to your job, of course, especially if you have no idea what your typical commute will look like. Also consider the proximity of things like hospitals, grocery stores, ATMs and any schools that your children will be attending.
You shouldn’t have to buy anything in temporary housing. All appliances, desks, dressers and beds should already be present in the home. You might also want something with a sense of style if you’ll be entertaining clients as part of your job.
You don’t want your neighbors to keep you awake at night. Look for a certain level of affluence in your corporate housing, one that includes things like a gated community or concierge service.
Last but certainly not least, don’t break yourself with a high-priced apartment. You’ll need those funds to find a place of your own, and they’ll be even more expensive with rents, deposits and utility bills.
These are just a few things to keep in mind when looking at corporate or temporary housing. You don’t have to live in squalor while searching for your dream home. Just plan ahead and consider your options carefully. Check out our housing options to learn more!
