Corporate Housing News
Interim Homes understands the value of a good “Walk Score” to every furnished corporate apartment resident. Many residents of corporate apartments come to their new home without their own vehicle and rely heavily on public transportation and their own two feet! Check out this recent article of the most “walkable” cities and rest-assured that Interim Homes’ relocation specialists search for the best “walkable” options for all guests. All Interim Homes properties on our website are rated with their individual Walk Score.

Support of Small Businesses!
The second annual Small Business Saturday is coming up on November 26, 2011. This day is dedicated to supporting our neighborhood small businesses. On what stands to be one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year, shoppers are encouraged to step away from the large chains and support the small vendors that are so vital to our local, state, and national economy. What a wonderful way to kick-start the holiday season!
Supporting small businesses, however, should be more than just a seasonal event. Small businesses in all professions and industries are a stabilizing force in the economy. By seeking out companies that are certified small businesses, buyers can be assured that their dollars are stimulating economic growth. The US Department of Commerce has provided some important facts about small businesses:
• Small businesses represent 99.7% of all employer firms
• Small businesses employ just over half of all private sector employees
• Small businesses pay 44% of total US private payroll
Given these statistics, why not choose to spend your money wisely and seek out to support small businesses whenever possible? From the quaint clothing boutique to the neighborhood plumber to the start-up IT company, buyers can make a conscious decision to contribute to the success and growth of our economy.
Interim Homes is a certified small, woman-owned business that provides short-term corporate housing throughout Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, and Delaware
