Revenue Corporate Housing

The Best Corporate Housing Websites

For the longest time, corporate housing has been an offline market where business travelers and booking agents communicated with property managers directly, turning to the internet for the sole purpose of finding contact numbers. This led to all kinds of issues for both the property managers and the corporations doing the leasing. Over the last ten years, however, a number of websites have emerged to bring more transparency and more equitable incentives to the market.

For those who haven’t had the time to scour the net for corporate housing listings, we’ve written this blog post to walk you through the different options on the market. Along the way, we’ll show you what makes each stand out from all the rest.
