About us
Jet City Housing is a new take on Seattle corporate housing and furnished executive apartment rentals.

About us

We know relocation.

 

After 7 moves across 5 cities and 2 countries…in the span of 8 years…we’ve learned a bit about what it feels like to be an employee moving to a new place. Now we’re turning the tides, providing all the services and amenities that would have made all the difference during our moves.

 

We offer Seattle corporate housing, perfect for relocations and short-term contracts. We love working with travel nurses, interns, and others in the area for a short time. We also serve local Seattle families needing furnished apartment rentals during remodels and throughout the buying and selling process. Combined with our full service concierge packages, moving has never been easier.

FAQ

How does this process work?

There are a lot of unknowns when you are in transition, and we’d like to clear up some questions by explaining our process and what it’s like to work with us.

We’ll review your initial email and ask a few follow up questions to determine if we think we could serve your needs. These questions are usually around the dates you need housing, your budget, and the size of unit you need.

If we believe we can find you suitable housing, we will ask for a $100 deposit to begin work. This $100 will apply to your first month’s rent, if you choose to sign a lease with us. If you find alternate housing, it is a nonrefundable fee that compensates us for the time and energy we put toward finding you housing.

Once we have found the perfect unit for you, the application process is as follows:

– complete a rental application

– complete a credit check ($35, payable directly to TransUnion Smart Move)

– submit a $300 security deposit, refundable if you or Jet City are not approved for a lease, or upon completion of the lease, less any fees for damage outside of normal wear and tear

It typically takes 3 days to hear back about corporate leases, so don’t fret if you don’t get an immediate “yes!” We will be in touch with you every step of the way so you know where things stand.

Once a lease is approved, we will verify the information submitted in your application and present you with a lease. Upon receipt of the signed lease and the first month’s payment, you are all set and ready to move in!

How much does an apartment cost?

We don’t have a standard price for our furnished, short term executive rentals. Each corporate apartment price is determined based on your needs. Pricing will vary based on location, size of unit, time of year that you are renting, parking needs, and pet fees, if applicable.

These differences exist because the base price of an apartment changes depending on these factors. We take the base rent, allow for the additional expenses involved in getting a short term apartment rental up and running, and present you with an all-inclusive price.

Take a look at our Pricing section, and please contact us to talk through your individual needs so we can create a quote tailored to your situation!

Why is the price you quote me higher than what I see online?

There are a few reasons why the end price we quote you is higher than what you will see the same unit renting for online. Let’s break those down:

  • Base rent – The advertised rental price will be for a 12-14 month lease. Short term leases, defined as anything shorter than 12 months, will be charged extra, sometimes as much as $400 per month
  • Required deposits – Seattle apartment buildings require both refundable and nonrefundable deposits for each lease. Your nonrefundable deposit can be anywhere from $200-$400, depending on the length of your lease
  • Utilities – We manage utilities for you, so you don’t have the hassle of setting up a temporary account
  • Parking – We factor in parking costs, if you need them
  • Internet/cable – Every unit comes with high speed internet, and cable on request
  • Cleaning – We don’t want you to worry about a thing during your stay. We take care of weekly cleaning, on the day and time of your preference, so you can always come home to a clean house
  • Furniture rental – Cost of furnishing your unit is included in your quoted price
  • Pet fees and deposits – “Pet rent” is $25-$35 per month, per pet. This is on top of the regular price of the unit. Additionally, there are refundable and non-refundable deposits required for all pets. These total $500-$600, with half being refundable upon move-out.

How long does it take to find an apartment?

That depends a lot on your availability. The ideal time to start looking for an apartment is 30-45 days before move-in. This is when buildings will get their vacancy notices and we can talk specifics about price.

If you are available to review a proposal and make an immediate decision, the timeline can be as short as a week from start to signing a lease. More commonly, the process takes two to three weeks.

I need an apartment in 3 months. Why can't we start looking now?

We welcome all inquiries, regardless of how far in advance you are planning. If we have current inventory that will be available during your dates, we can certainly plan ahead.

If we will be starting a new lease for you, we will have to wait until apartment buildings have published their availability. This happens 30-45 days before an apartment is ready for move-in. As soon as that time window opens, we’ll jump into action to find you the perfect place as early as possible.

Why should I work with you instead of a larger corporate housing company?

We are a local, woman-owned business, and we are proud to represent Seattle. This is our focus and our home, which allows us to know the places that other companies don’t.

We focus on service. Exceptional customer service is what drives our business, and we believe we do it better than anyone. We will work with you and get creative to find the perfect temporary housing for you. If your budget doesn’t quite meet our averages, contact us anyway. Chances are, we can still find a great spot for you.

Why are your prices lower than other companies'?

We’re a young business and aiming to grow fast. To do that, we’re trading profit for experience. We hope to knock your socks off so that you will refer us to friends, leave honest reviews, and help us grow this into the premier Seattle corporate housing company.
