Luneh, a national temporary housing provider, announces a seven-figure investment from Decathlon Capital Partners to scale its growth in the corporate housing and furnished home markets.
The company will use the capital to fund new offerings in response to the growing demand in its primary business areas: temporary housing for employee relocations of the Fortune 1000, insurance/catastrophe-related housing, and long-term government assignments.
“The industry has markedly shifted in the aftermath of Covid. The ubiquity of the various OTAs has commoditized furnished housing in the vacation rental market”, said Founder and President, Dariush Dylan Karbassyoon.
“However, housing isn’t housing. Our core competency has always been in longer-term corporate employee relocations. Over the past 15 years I have been fortunate enough to have met and housed employees at some of the largest companies in the world. These employees and their respective colleagues in the HR and Relocation departments don’t expect a vacation rental, they expect a consistent corporate accommodation.
Though OTAs like Airbnb, VRBO, and the like have changed the world, our goal at Luneh is not to look at Corporate Housing as just a story of what once was, but the basis to a blend of our old world with the new. Our corporate clients expect ‘uniformity of product;’ that’s our value-add and what they are ultimately paying for. They want a housing provider with style and vision that they can trust, who will deliver on everything promised, and be consistent on scale.
With that ethos in mind, in addition to offering traditional corporate apartments, we have been strategically partnering with homeowners nationwide to help convert their vacation rentals into Luneh approved corporate homes. By doing so we have been able to both increase owner ROI and reduce annualized tenant turns. Most importantly, we can now offer our client base a more assorted set of options for every housing request.
Relocation departments will now feel just as confident in Luneh offering their employees a furnished home or condo as they would a traditional corporate apartment from a large multifamily building.” About Luneh
