10. Dynamic Pricing, Hotels Versus Corporate Housing

See below — an article about dynamic pricing in the hotel sector.

IHG Claims Growing Use Of Dynamic Pricing
http://www.management.travel/news.php?cid=dynamic-pricing-growing-IHG.Dec-10.15

In the hotel sector, dynamic pricing has been part of their business model for the last 10+ years. And their pricing strategies can shift daily and weekly.

What is your approach to the pricing of your furnished suites? What are the trends for pricing in your specific market? How is it similar/different when compared to competing extended-stay hotels and other corporate housing companies? How often are you shopping/comparing pricing in your market---then tucking this into your sales presentations/proposals? How is your pricing strategy being included in the sales scripts being using by your inside sales team…when they are handling inbound leads and prospects?

Want to learn more about the topic/discussion above? Join our LinkedIn® professional networking services group at the url below,

9. Bullish Apartment Outlook = Higher Rents Coming

Surf the url below:

Stars Are Aligned For Bullish Apartment Outlook In 2011
http://nreionline.com/property/multifamily/bullish_apartment_outlook_1201/

and also, this one:

http://rismedia.com/2010-12-01/consumer-confidence-at-highest-level-since-june-2010/

While I am grateful to read the news and projections for 2011 in the apartment sector — a sector that I have worked in since 1988…from a corporate housing perspective — this means higher rents are coming— , right?

So as you look towards 2011 — good/strong are your property management relationships?

From your point-of-view…are you getting the best pricing? The least amount of move-in fees/costs? The best contractual term/conditions + flexibility and vacancy credits?

And, do you have all of this — writing?

4. Record extended-stay bookings in 2010

Just saw/read the news below — and because the extended-stay market is so closely related to our corporate housing sector/industry — I wanted to share this with you.


Extended-stay hotel room nights accommodated in 2010 were the highest ever recorded in the first nine months of a year and room revenues hit a record for any third quarter period, according to The Highland Group's US Extended-Stay Lodging Report: Third Quarter 2010. Double-digit demand growth combined with a sharp decline in new rooms opening caused occupancy to rise more than 10%. Quarterly changes in extended-stay average rate turned positive following six consecutive quarters of decline. Extended-stay hotel RevPar should be up 7% to 8% in 2010 compared to 2009.

The rate of increase in extended-stay hotel supply plummeted to its lowest level in at least 15 years and it will go even lower in 2011. Record low supply growth coupled with rising demand and room rates portends even stronger extended-stay hotel RevPar growth in 2011 than in 2010.

Your take on these trends for 2010? Your thoughts on how extended-stay hotels are impacting your revenue?
