The Value of Corporate Housing

Corporate housing is fully furnished temporary housing, typically in an apartment setting.  Professional providers coordinate these units to include furniture, housewares, amenities, cable, phone, electric, water, etc., usually at one inclusive cost to the company and typically for 30 + days.

Corporate housing is a physical space and a full range of services offered to a client/guest, specific to their unique needs. Corporate housing is more than four walls; it is everything you need to live away from your permanent home.
