For months, U.S. vacancy rates have been increasingly high across the board. In July 2009, apartment vacancy rates hit a 22-year high during what is usually the peak season for leasing. Although it was expected that those unable to afford homes would turn to renting, the overwhelming amount of job losses led to high vacancy rates. The positive aspect for those in the market to rent is that rents are falling faster than they have in over a decade. The most drastic fall in rental rates has affected the markets of New York, San Jose, Las Vegas, and Orange County California. While some markets, where unemployment rates are not as high, have seen a small growth in renting rates, such as in suburban Maryland and in Washington, D.C.
So what does this rental environment mean for corporate housing? While the corporate housing industry cannot completely escape the weak economy, corporate housing occupancy has generally remained high because providers can remove and add units according to demand. Also, temporary housing is more appealing to consumers during times of economic distress. Unlike most average apartment rentals that require a year lease, most corporate housing providers only require a 30-night minimum, which is easier for customers to grasp financially. Also, many relocating employees are coming into the market with a far different idea of renting and leasing than your average renter. These renters/employees have corporate jobs and salaries that can pay the rent. Also, no matter what the economic environment, corporate housing remains a strong alternative to simple and unfriendly hotel rooms.
