More About This Show
Corporate housing is a unique space within the real estate sector that I knew very little about until my interview with Kimberly. Corporate housing provides short-term housing solutions for individuals and families. Corporate housing is primarily for business travel, but Kimberly explains this service is also applicable for renters who have just relocated to a new city, or are temporarily relocating.

The properties are furnished rentals that are typically provided on a monthly basis. Kimberly explains that the industry is not new, but the popularity of services such as Airbnb has shed light on corporate housing.

The reason why corporate housing is largely unheard of is because it is a B2B transaction. Typically, corporate housing works with relocation packages, insurance claims, or even professional athlete contracts.

Kimberly owns two corporate housing businesses. AvenueWest provides property management services for fully furnished corporate housing residences. They have local offices in many US cities. Kimberly’s other business, Corporate Housing by Owner provides marketing solutions to corporate housing owners—this service connects landlords and renters.

On today’s show, Kimberly is sharing more about her extensive knowledge of corporate housing. She’s sharing the main benefits, and how to build relationships in order to get started. We’ll talk about annual returns, the future of the trade, and much more! Please join us for episode 140!
