DENVER, CO – October 17, 2012  – To demonstrate its commitment to educating corporate housing landlords, (CHBO®) today releases a revised edition of its comprehensive CHBO® Handbook. In the new edition of the  50+ page CHBO® Handbook, offered on for free, CHBO® details the ins and outs of how to be a responsible and successful corporate housing landlord.

CHBO®, a website that connects individual property owners offering short-term rentals with qualified tenants around the world, has made the CHBO® Handbook available to any real estate investor or property owner who is interested in offering their furnished rental property to corporate housing seekers across the globe.

“Tenants of corporate housing have come to expect a top-notch product,” says Kimberly Smith, CHBO® co-founder and CEO. “That’s why the CHBO® Handbook serves as an important tool for our members and non-members. We want tenants to have a quality experience with their corporate rental, whether they rent from a CHBO member or elsewhere.”
In the CHBO® Handbook, individual homeowners and furnished property managers will find answers to these questions and more:

  • What makes a good corporate rental property?
  • How do you prepare a property for rent as corporate housing?
  • How do you effectively market a corporate rental property without breaking the bank?
  • How do you efficiently manage tenant inquiries and requests?
  • What is CHBO® and how does it work?

“The CHBO® Handbook offers a unique insider’s look into the corporate housing industry and prepares individuals for what it takes to be a profitable corporate housing landlord within the larger monthly lodging industry,” adds Smith. “The Handbook is free because we want to make sure all corporate housing landlords are fully prepared for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead when it comes to managing a unique corporate housing rental. We think it’s important that every property owner only offers quality properties that meet or exceed generally accepted corporate housing standards.”
