According to Kimberly Smith, founder of CorporateHousingByOwner.com, a portal that fills in the need for homeowners in search of corporate renters, receives numerous calls by the hour from homeowners enquiring about renting their homes. Ms Smith who is also president of Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA) says that the opportunity to find a corporate renter willing to rent your fully furnished home is proving to be a hot emerging real estate trend. 60% of the homes listed on their website were rented as a result of homeowners’ relocation needs. Demand is increasing as corporate apartment rentals prices rose due to increasingly strong demand.
Kimberly Smith discovered troubling news while having lunch with an executive headhunter. He revealed that corporations were broadening their search for job applicants as they did not want to end up with an employee who is experiencing trouble with their ‘underwater’ home. Corporations may discriminate against job applicants based on the status of their financial struggles.
For many homeowners who are job seekers, this is disturbing news. As gloomy it may seem, corporate housing rentals maybe one of the few alternatives for ‘underwater’ homeowners seeking a way out to relocate for a new job.
