If your business brings you to Atlanta, Georgia for an extended stay — or in anticipation of a permanent move — a furnished corporate apartment is usually an excellent alternative to staying in an extended-stay hotel. That said, there are many options from which to choose — so here are 5 tips for finding the perfect corporate apartment for you!
1. Determine your needs
How large of an apartment do you need? Are you coming alone, or will you bring the family along? What amenities are important to you (e.g., business services, pool, laundry facilities)? Corporate apartments are usually available in 1, 2 or 3-bedroom floor plans, and are located in complexes with a wide range of amenities. Decide how much space you’ll need before beginning your search.
2. Determine your target area
Atlanta is a sprawling metropolis with quite a few business hubs, like Midtown, Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Decatur, just to name a few. Quite possibly you’ll want your corporate apartment to be located near where you’ll be working. If you’re working in the hustle and bustle of intown Atlanta yet you really want your corporate housing to feel more like a getaway, you might even look as far out as Peachtree City and commute to the city.
3. Determine your transportation needs
While staying in Atlanta, will you be using a car? Will you want access to public transportation like buses or trains? Do you want to be in a walking neighborhood? Traffic patterns can be quite congested in certain areas of the city, so commute times may affect where you stay. If you want to skip the highways, your perfect corporate apartment might be steps away from a MARTA train station.
4. Get help from a local professional.
Once you have an idea of how much apartment you need, where in Atlanta you’d like to stay, and what your transportation needs are, you’ll still want help from an established local company to guide you to the perfect solution. No matter how well you do your homework, there will still be insider “secrets” regarding neighborhoods, amenities and traffic patterns that only a local would know. To make sure you don’t get locked into a living situation you hate, let a corporate housing professional assist you in your search.
