How to set up corporate housing – If you own a property in which you’re not currently living, and/or which is not currently rented out long term, then renting it out as a short-term rental is a fantastic way to cover the monthly bills and earn ancillary income.

A rental house should be immaculate. Clean the house thoroughly, including inside the refrigerator, the woodwork and walls, and carpets.


Amenities are often included in the total rental price. Most houses will not rent well short-term without certain basics included in the rental price: Gas, electric, water, heating, basic cable and wireless Internet. High on the list of requests also will be: Air conditioning, a landline telephone for local calls, and a microwave. Further appreciated amenities include: Off-street parking, laundry facilities, and a fold-away bed or a pull-out of some type. Cleaning service may be offered at an additional cost.

The house should be supplied with at least the number of place settings and cutlery as the maximum number of people allowed to stay in the house. Kitchens should encompass the basics for cooking meals. Also allow for plenty of towels and linens. Make sure emergency phone numbers are posted for the renter, include the owner’s number.

Consult your insurance agent regarding coverage for your property as a rental and make any necessary changes to your policy. Have the renter sign a rental agreement before they occupy the house, and include the intended dates of occupancy along with the amount due. There are numerous sample rental agreements to be found online, and they can be tailored to a owner’s specific needs. To solidly book the house, make sure to acquire a security deposit that can then be applied to the total rental amount once the renter arrives or pays the balance. For short-term rentals under 1 month, it is safest to be paid in full before the renter is given the keys.
