5 Warning Signs To Watch Out For When Booking Executive Accommodation
Are you looking for furnished apartments for your employees? Do you need long-term hotels for your colleagues who are working on extended projects for your company? Do you need those apartments to be fully furnished and comfortable? If you’re looking for executive suites for your company’s employees, read on to learn our top five warning signs to know before you begin booking:
Tip #1: Note Poor Websites and Photos
Your first warning sign when researching short stay apartments for your employees is the rental property website. The website should be well maintained and feature high-resolution, clear photos. Photos are especially important when you don’t live locally and cannot tour the apartment before booking. So make sure you see the photos before you book.
Tip #2: Abort If You Can’t Talk to Someone
Be very suspicious if you are unable to talk to someone directly. This does not include email. You need contact information and a phone number to call a representative. Some companies do not provide people to talk to — and that’s a problem if something goes wrong.
Tip #3: Be Wary If You Can’t Visit Locally
If you are looking into local rentals, then try to visit. If the representative does not allow this, then you should keep looking at other executive housing. It should be no problem to take a tour of a local apartment before you book.
Tip #4: Keep Looking if the Apartment is Empty
One of the greatest benefits of executive apartments is that they are fully-furnished housing that makes the experience comfortable and easy for the occupant. If you have an employee who is going to be staying long-term for a project, then that person needs a comfortable bed, a fully-functioning kitchen with all the utensils and appliances and a couch. You shouldn’t be furnishing executive housing. It should already be there.
Tip #5: Reconsider if the Fine Print is Blurry
Finally, read the fine print about the money required upfront and the nuances of your security deposit. If the fine print is blurry in your mind, then expect to lose money in the end or to have a dispute with the executive housing landlord. Make sure you know what is required of you — and the conditions of returning the executive apartment in working order to the landlord.
Keep these five tips in mind as you decide on your executive housing for your employees and you’ll not only save money but you’ll provide a necessary and helpful resource that makes your employees feel comfortable and ready to work.
