Why Short Term Rentals?

By in Articles with 3 Comments

Many people that need a short-term apartment make the mistake of booking a hotel room or suite. There are many situations when a monthly furnished apartment rental is a far better choice at first. We looked at our customer data and will walk you through some of the most common use cases:


If you’re moving to a new city for a year or more, you may be thinking of buying a home, especially if you’re bringing your family with you. Don’t rush the home shopping and move-in process. Use a monthly furnished home rental as a bridge strategy until the moment is right to move into your new permanent home. Even if you’re just going to rent in your new city, a monthly rental is still a very smart bridge strategy.

Temporary assignment.

If you’ve got an upcoming work project in a new city for a month or more, your company will either give you a corporate housing stipend or pay for it directly on your behalf. Either way is easy with CTC.

Here are some of the common industries that regularly need to place employees in this kind of temporary housing.

Film production.

Say you’re the production company filming Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine in San Francisco. Where are you going to house the film crew? Hotels would be pretty expensive. You could save a ton of budget by putting the crew up in a nice big shared home, rentable by the month and fully furnished.


If you need to gather a bunch of your company’s employees for a training event that may take place over a couple weeks or more, it’s likely that you’ll save a ton with a housing partner like CTC.

International assignment/U.S. HQ rotation.

It’s common for U.S. companies that operate globally to bring foreign executives to the U.S. for an HQ rotation. Corporate housing is perfect for that need.

Professional athletes.

If you’re a talent agent for pro athletes, you’ll want to work with CTC. We can house your clients in almost any major U.S. city in a beautiful, multi-bedroom standalone home.


Consultants are the original road warriors. While most consulting projects will only require a weekly cycle of a few days onsite followed by a few days at home, there are some projects that will require you to be onsite for an extended period of time. For those projects, a monthly furnished rental is the right move.

Home remodeling or purchase.

Buying or selling a home? Move in to a furnished rental while you wait for your new home to be move-in ready. Remodeling? Get out of the contractor’s way, and get them out of your way. Get the details on temporary homes during remodeling projects here.

Medical recovery.

Vacation rental.

Take the family away for a month. Generally speaking, the longer the commitment, the less expensive it will be on a per-night basis. So a monthly lease through CTC will cost your family a lot less per night than a weekly rental or a nightly rental.
