SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--2nd Address, formerly known as Homesuite, has undergone a rebrand as the company strengthens its offering to best serve business travelers seeking extended stay furnished housing rentals. The rebrand illustrates the company’s journey over the past two years: from launching a marketplace of vetted, trustworthy Guests and Hosts to now concentrating on the technology and hospitality experience to make business travel easier and more enjoyable.
"The vacation rental space is crowded, however there are surprisingly few brands serving professionals with extended stay options,” said Chung-Man Tam, CEO of 2nd Address. “We are giving those businesspeople a housing partner they can rely on for comfortable and stylish apartments and homes in prime locations across the country."
Backed by Google Ventures, Foundation Capital, and Battery Ventures among others, the company launched in 2015 and quickly set out to modernize the furnished rentals space. The company was able to streamline and digitize a process that at the time required a lot of legwork, including scouring various websites and manual vetting. As the company grew, the municipal legislation landscape shifted, with many U.S. cities furthering restrictions to short-term rentals (fewer than 30 days). As a result, the industry became more confusing for many renters and property owners which increased the company’s value to both groups.
As 2nd Address grows and focuses on bringing simplicity and enjoyment to business travel, the company is dedicated to the following pillars:
- Expertise - We cater to the detailed needs of the demanding business professional who requires a streamlined experience so they can focus on their work. With vetted Hosts and Guests, a guarantee for the duration of the stay, and Business Stay Approved properties, 2nd Address ensures that Guests have the amenities and service they need to deliver a job well done.
- Fueled by technology - 2nd Address is making the process of finding, leasing, and moving into a property faster and easier than ever. From in-depth imagery that helps Guests experience the property as though they were there to local pricing data and online lease signing, we’re bringing overdue transparency and simplicity to longer term business travel.
- Personalized service - Our selection of unique, high-quality properties ensures guests will find the right property in the right location for them. On arrival and throughout their stay, we help them help them make the most of their stay with personalized recommendations and services - making their lives easier so they can work better.
