We are upset by how the oil spill has already devastated tourism and real estate in the Gulf. We want to show our deep support to investors and homeowners in the community as BP and the U.S. government work towards a solution.
Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) June 16, 2010
Last week, Corporate Housing by Owner officials learned that a vacation rental owner in Alabama had every single one of her summer reservations cancel for this summer, leaving her without rental income on her investment property. To help, Corporate Housing By Owner is offering free listings on its popular online furnished housing marketplace to any property owners currently offering a furnished rental in the Gulf states, including Alabama, Louisiana, Florida and Mississippi, and who are being adversely impacted by the devastating oil spill. Vacation Rentals are typically offered to tourists for one week stays while corporate rentals are offered to individuals in need of housing for one month or longer.
Kimberly Smith, the founder of Corporate Housing By Owner, says, “We are upset by how the oil spill has already devastated tourism and real estate in the Gulf. We want to show our deep support to investors and homeowners in the community as BP and the U.S. government work towards a solution,” says Smith. “We’d like to encourage those currently marketing their properties as vacation rentals to also market their properties as corporate rentals. This way they can help house the teams of experts and volunteers flocking to the area to help and who are in need of short-term housing.”
If you qualify for a free listing on CHBO, please contact the company. For additional information, please contact the company at 877-333-CHBO (2426). You must be a new CHBO customer to qualify and the current owner of a furnished rental property located in the Gulf.
Homeowners interested in offering their investment properties as furnished, corporate rentals can access the Corporate Housing Annual Report and the CHBO Owner Handbook to learn more about corporate housing.
CHBO was founded in 2006 out of a need to connect private homeowners and real estate investors offering furnished, short-term rentals with corporate housing seekers such as traveling executives, relocated professionals, traveling nurses, actors, athletes and more. The company gives individual homeowners and investors tools to manage a corporate housing property themselves as well as helps them market their property to a mass audience turning to corporate housing to fulfill their housing needs.
