Growing Through Challenges

We still remember vividly when the pandemic first hit. All the travel restrictions and shelters were put in place, and we realized immediately that this would be an unprecedented challenge for the global mobility market as a whole. For Month2Month, our business is closely tied with the rapid change of the mobility market and Month2Month’s ability to rapidly adapt is critical.

Luckily, back then, we already had most of our houses occupied with families who had longer-term housing needs. We were also able to maintain and cater to the vital needs of insurance relocation. With our devoted investors’ support, we were able to expand our inventory to quite a few new locations outside California such as Texas, Florida, Nevada, Oregon and West Virginia.     

During the slow season, we didn’t just sit idle or choose the lowest hanging fruit. Instead, we focused on streamlining our operational procedures – from Finance, HR and Product Management to Sales Outreach focused on investing in our people. 

For example, we provided employees with opportunities to develop cross-disciplinary expertise. By rotating the staff through various departments, learning on the job has been made easy, and the excitement in the workplace got generated naturally. Our sales team now offers a fresh perspective to our property maintenance manager, and our property maintenance team finds it exhilarating to observe how the marketing process works. 

For example, our sales veteran Ashley has been with the company for five years and in her own words: “2020 is the year when I saw myself growing professionally fastest and become a better version of myself surprisingly during the pandemic!”.

 

But what really keeps us afloat and even thriving in the past year is the unswerving devotion from our loyal employees. We didn’t scale back or let anybody go due to the pandemic. Instead, we were able to maintain all the jobs by instituting temporary pay cuts. We appreciate every team member – from CEO to ground level contractors who were making sacrifices to help our business weather the industry recession. We have doubled our business staff since last year, and we are still actively hiring! Everything we have experienced in the past 12 months proves to the industry and our investors that we are resilient and Month2Month’s ability to rapidly adapt will continuously guide us in our future adventure.

Month2Month Takes You to Explore What Vegas Looks Like Right Now

Month2Month is expanding its inventory to Vegas Nevada and would like to share why it’s a good idea to relocate your clients there during the pandemic. Our furnished housings in Summerlin, NV terms provides a safe and spacious work from home setting while still allowing guests to enjoy the amenities and experiences Las Vegas is known for. 

The hotels seemed crowded, but a lot of safety measures in place

Technically, The well-known Strip isn’t even in Vegas; it’s actually in Paradise, Nevada. The four-mile Las Vegas Boulevard corridor is home to world-class food and top-notch entertainment. A lot of activities have reopened with safety guidelines and measures in place.  The city is working really hard to promote and create a safe environment for guests. Visitors are finding that the hotels adhere to the safety protocols well and people respect and appreciate those precautions. Hand sanitizer, safety-related signs, and masks are everywhere. The new marketing strategy is less “What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas,” and more “Stay Smart. Stay Healthy”.

Life does not happen on the Strip

For people who know the “Sin City” well, life does not happen on the Strip. Beyond the slot machines, dazzling neon lights and fancy hotels, Vegas has just as many amenities as other major cities, but with much affordable prices, surprisingly. As a Vegas local you’ll probably never visit the tourist trap. Instead, you would check out the restaurants and entertainment in areas like Summerlin and Downtown Vegas. Downtown Vegas is home to Fremont Street Experience, which offers everything from zip-lining to live music to dining.

Summerlin is perfect for your relocation needs

Summerlin is a premier urban and residential community nestled against the breathtaking Red Rock National Conservation Area. It has an all-star roster of national homebuilders, ensuring that quality, innovative, and progressive home design remains a community hallmark. Contact us today if you need furnished housings in Summerlin, NV! Click here for more information about the property.

Temporary Housing Market Has Never Been Hotter

As we all know the supply of single family properties for mid-term rental varies drastically among different cities. The demand never balances the supply in some locations.  For the temporary housing relocation market, we are competing with Sixteen Million customers in the U.S. today who rent a single-family home.

 While the insured clients are waiting so anxiously in the small hotels, the available house options are so limited that your competitors are working around the clock to search and bid. Even if you are lucky enough to finally find a house owned and maintained by private owners or “mom and pop” landlords, you start to worry their lack of systems and procedures create huge headaches for your Customer Experience and Accounting team. 

Bringing this new asset class to a functioning operational scale is never easy. As an institutional firm with 10 years in the single-family rental space, Month2Month is very proud of our seasoned processes and metrics in place from our years of partnership experience providing premium insurance and temporary housing for you folks. To help destress you a little bit, we’d like to announce we found the following properties in the most competitive locations and please be prepared for matching your needs far ahead of your competition!

San Dimas, California is Ideal for Relocation

San Dimas is a lovely city where many people who find temporary housing there will end up adoring it so much that they wonder why they haven’t explored it sooner.  Southern Californians who are familiar with major cities and noisy tourist towns know the true character lies inside its smaller cities and towns. For working professionals with a remote work mode now, families who look for a temporary home and need good schools for their kids, or adventurous couples who just need a change of scenery in a laid-back environment, Month2Month highly recommend giving San Dimas a try for relocation. It is an underrated gem full of parks, equestrian vibes and plenty of local history.

Month2Month’s Temporary Housings in Houston

Month2Month is thrilled to announce that we now have temporary housings in Houston.

Houston 

“Space center”, “Houston Zoo”, “NASA”, “the fourth largest city in the country by population”,  “aggressive driving culture” and “Tex-Mex restaurants” are just a few factors on everyone’s lips when people think of Houston, such an impressive major city.   

Surprisingly, Houston is the most ethnically diverse metropolitan area in America— more diverse than New York City, Los Angeles or Chicago. That’s because no other city has as equal of a distribution as Houston does of the four major ethnicities found in the United States. It is truly a minority-majority city. More than 90 languages are spoken in the Houston metro area, though the most common are English, Spanish and Vietnamese. 

Known as home to happy growing families, Fort Bend County 30 miles southwest to Downtown Houston is complemented by consistent good weather, a variety of dining and retail options, open green spaces, and numerous family attractions. The county has also been named one of the safest in the US, and it is a regional leader in household income.

 

Holidale Rentals Location 

Our two brand new properties are in the Sienna Plantation, Missouri City are just a few minutes away from the metropolitan area. The top-selling community nationwide provides the perfect mix of amenities and wide-open spaces perfect for family relocation needs. With the quiet, well-kept neighborhoods, exceptional schools, 100 acres of parks and proximity to Houston,  it is the ideal place for families who look for temp housing solutions.

Irvine CA is Ideal for Insurance Housings Placements

We had to show you why you should provide our Irvine housing options to meet your insurance clients‘ relocation needs, even BEFORE they realize it themselves. As we had quite a few success cases of families who resided in other cities and chose to relocate here in amazing Irvine California, we would like to introduce you Irvine as a perfect place for relocation and invite you to consider us to provide insurance housings to your clients. 

Orange County is the smallest county by area in Southern California and it is easy for people across the regions to commute and move without a hassle.  However, Orange County is sometimes divided into northern and southern regions, where the significant political, demographic, economic and cultural distinctions make some residents reluctant to relocate to other cities, even if it only means ten minutes of driving away. 

Orange County is also the second most densely populated county in the state with more than 3 million residents and understandably strong insurance and corporate relocation needs. Located in the center of South OC, Irvine boasts the unparalleled convenience of a 15-minute drive to any other OC city. It is known for its stunning landscape, dynamic retail destinations, thriving economy and award-winning school district. Irvine provides residents with an unparalleled quality of life especially for families with young kids. One of our current guests staying in Irvine was relocated last year from Fullerton, northern Orange County and had even their first newborn girl here in our nice property! We also had the disappointing experience of meeting a family from Laguna Niguel who preferred to get stuck in hotel rooms in the same area over spacious single-family rentals in Irvine.   

One of the best parts of living in Irvine is your proximity to any other city in Orange County and the most popular hiking trails, parks and nature preserves, which we believe the insured families appreciate, a great relaxation from their stressed situations with the complicated insurance claim process and small hotel rooms. 

Contact Us! If you have any needs for insurance housings in Irvine, we always have the perfect inventory in the perfect locations!

Furnished Temporary Housing is Perfect for Group Retreat!

Your online writer’s group is planning its annual retreat. Your friends from high school are getting together to plot your 25th reunion. Whether your group is going away together or coming together from different locations all across the country, someone is usually in charge of finding a place for everyone to stay. Booking a block of hotel rooms for a family reunion might seem like the easiest way to have everyone at the same place, but a Month2Month furnished temporary housing is more cost effective, offers better space for group interaction and allows you to cater more effectively to special requests or needs.

Efficient Cost

A furnished temporary housing usually costs less per bedroom than hotels with comparable luxury and amenities would cost. For example, you can book an 8-bedroom rental home in Kissimmee, Florida, at Month2Month for as low as $509 per night during the off-season and as high as $856 during the busy season. Even a modestly priced string of eight hotel rooms is going to cost you well over $1000, no matter what time of the year it is. When it comes to accommodation costs for a crowd, the furnished temporary housing is the clear winner.

Ideal Space

A successful group retreat requires a delicate balance of group time and solitary time for the participants. This is especially important if group members do not know each other very well or are only familiar with each other in regards to the one thing they have in common, such as their love of writing or their family history. Unlike a group of hotel rooms, your Month2Month furnished temporary housing features both indoor and outdoor common areas where everyone can gather without being crowded while still offering private areas where people can take a break from the group when they need to recharge.

Special Requests

It is difficult enough to pick a restaurant that everyone will like when you are only making plans for your family of four. This challenge can become downright daunting when you are trying to please a larger group. Renting a furnished temporary housing home solves a large portion of this issue. With a full kitchen at your disposal, you can plan meals that take everyone’s preferences into account. A kitchen also makes it easier to accommodate any special dietary needs that members of your group might have. With our Month2Month furnished temporary housing,

you can more easily take control of your group’s meals.

3 Ways to Save Money by Renting a Vacation Home

Planning a family vacation can be overwhelming, particularly when you start adding up how much it is going to cost. There are surprising ways to save money, however, that might not be on your radar. Believe it or not, staying at a Holidale vacation rental instead of in hotel rooms can save you quite a bit of money on your vacation. You can spend less money per room, cut your diningexpenses extensively and even save money on entertainment.

Room Expenses

You may be thinking that there is no way a vacation home is less expensive than a hotel. Search for vacation homes online, and you might find that the relative cost of renting a home is a delightful surprise. For example, let’s say your family wants to go on a beach vacation to California. You can rent a 2-bedroom home in Irvine, California, from holidale.com for $247 a night. A midgrade hotel with typical amenities is going to cost you at least $150 per room, so you can save $53 a night or more by booking the Holidale vacation rental. Your family gets more space and comparable perks for a better price.

Food Expenses

Dining costs are often the most alarming items on the vacationer’s budget. Who knew that something as simple as basic sustenance could drive up the overall cost of your getaway so dramatically? Dining out is fun, but if your family is going out for every meal while you are away, food could be the expense category that ends up costing you the most. If you rent a vacation home, however, you have the saving grace of a kitchen. Access to a kitchen in your Holidale vacation rental allows you to plan many of your meals and snacks frugally, making the meals you eat in restaurants the special occasions they ought to be instead of just one more thing you have to buy.

Entertainment Expenses

When your family stays in a hotel, you might feel pressured to draw up a busy itinerary, full of activities and events, most of which will cost something. After all, you are not going on a trip just to sit in a boxy room and watch television. Your vacation home, however, is more likely to be set in a community, where you can enjoy relaxed (and free) activities like scenic walks around the neighborhood or reading while having a cup of tea on the patio. Your Holidale vacation rental gives you plenty of space to unwind right there in the house.

When you are making vacation plans, it is okay to give your wallet a vacation, too. Booking a vacation home through holidale.com can be just the break your budget needs.
