Do you buy apartments?

No, we do not.

What are your typical terms of agreement with property owners and managers?

Terms vary depending upon the target market and type of property. Contact us, and we’ll figure out a way to make it work for you. We work directly with property managers and owners of all sizes and kinds from publicly-traded REITs to owners of single apartments.

What’s the minimum length of stay?

Different cities have different housing laws. In New York City, the minimum length of stay at a Stayawhile is 30 days because New York City’s legislation is designed to protect residential buildings from becoming transient hotels. Since most Stayawhiles are located in residentially-zoned buildings, they are subject to a minimum stay of 30 days. In other cities, Stayawhiles may be available for shorter periods of time.

Is this coliving?

No. Stayawhiles are all private apartments with private bathrooms and kitchens or kitchenettes.

How are your apartments cleaned and maintained?

We clean and maintain apartments at least once a month and before each new guest moves in.
