AvenueWest Phoenix connects private landlords with those in need of corporate housing. Corporate housing is defined as fully furnished rental apartments, homes or condominiums offered for rent on a short-term basis, usually for one month or more.
Meghan Hartman, the owner of the AvenueWest Phoenix office, says Phoenix is the perfect place to set up a corporate housing shop.
“As the economy continues to strengthen, more and more people are relocating to the Phoenix area. Phoenix has a very dynamic housing market, and property inventory is at a premium so it may take several months for people moving into the Phoenix market to find a new home, and short term housing presents the best solution during that transition.”
Hartman continued: “Phoenix has always been a destination market and we have a large number of visitors every year. Many people want to stay in a home with all of the amenities, and AvenueWest offers the perfect solution for those who want the comforts of home rather than a transient experience at a hotel that can potentially be more expensive.”
Hartman, whose past experiences include corporate positions with a number of real estate related franchisors and owning and operating her own real estate brokerage, will officially open the AvenueWest Phoenix office on October 1, 2013. Hartman adds: the interest in managed corporate housing from corporations, investors and real estate professionals alike is exceeding her expectations.
“With such interest brewing from corporations in the entire valley, the real opportunity lies with individual homeowners who want to offer their furnished homes as corporate rental properties. They have the opportunity to work with us to capitalize on and profit from the growing need for temporary housing solutions in the area,” she says.
“…the real opportunity lies with individual homeowners who want to offer their furnished homes as corporate rental properties.” Like the beautiful Optima Biltmore Towers building which has lots of condos for sale.
Kimberly Smith, the CEO of AvenueWest Global Franchise, says that opening an office in Phoenix has been on her bucket list since the day she started her business. She says she believes managed housing is the best solution to meet the short term housing needs of the Phoenix market.
“An executive who wants a furnished property with all the creature comforts of home and high-end furnishings will have a strong preference for AvenueWest’s corporate rental properties over a transient hotel setting or other generic apartment rentals,” says Smith. “With Meghan’s knowledge of the area and industry, AvenueWest Phoenix now offers the kinds of rental properties required by discerning executives. It also offers the opportunity for private landlords to earn greatly increased rental income on their properties.”
