Housing for Permian Basin Workers

A Texas city in the heart of the Permian Basin – Midland, TX – is the epicenter for one of the largest oil booms in recent years. With the rebound of the oil industry, the housing demand in the Permian Basin has surged in the last year. Reports say that a Midland home, on average, only takes 28 days to sell due to the huge influx of workers trying to make their fortune in the industry. Midland is topping the U.S. housing market thanks to this oil boom. Companies are willing to pay large salaries due to a previous labor shortage and many people and companies are looking to strike liquid gold.

Finding the right housing can be difficult if you are relocating to Midland for the oil boom. While many workers are searching for a new home, temporary housing is necessary, as it is substantially cheaper than most hotels and other living solutions. Bloomberg has reported that many Midland hotels are going for 400-600$ a night! Shady hotel owners are taking complete advantage of the situation, as it can be difficult to find housing on such a short notice.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a business owner managing a large team of employees or an employee yourself; this oil boom is bringing in thousands of new workers due to a labor shortage.

Benefits of Exercise

There is a huge list of benefits from exercise. Here are just a few:

1. Happiness: Exercise has been shown to decrease feelings of anxiety and depression in people by increasing the production of hormones like norepinephrine and serotonin in the brain. If you’re feeling home-sick during your business trip, exercise is a very good idea.
2. Weight Maintenance: Just because you are away from home doesn’t mean that you have to gain weight. A proper regimen of aerobic or anaerobic exercise can help with muscle mass maintenance and fat loss.
3. Energy Levels: Exercise can be an energy booster for people that suffer from chronic or debilitating fatigue. Even though exercising may be the last thing you want to do after eight hours in the office, a quick stop at the gym provides numerous benefits.

4. Be healthier: A common cause of chronic disease is a lack of physical activity; by exercising every day, you can improve your insulin sensitivity, body composition, blood pressure, and longevity.
5. Sleep Quality: Even though our beds are incredibly comfortable, many people suffer from insomnia. A study found that people who regularly deal with insomnia benefited from exercise by increasing the overall amount of hours slept.

The Alamo

If you’ve taken a U.S. history course, I’m sure you’ve heard about The Alamo. The Alamo is one of the most historic sites in the Southern U.S. due to the famous battle that occurred there. The Battle of the Alamo played out in 1836 when a small band of U.S. soldiers defended themselves against a Mexican army of 3,000. The battle did not last long, with all U.S. soldiers being killed in minutes. “Remember The Alamo!” became a cry for Texan independence, with the battle site now a National Monument and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The San Antonio River Walk

Considered one of the most popular daytime activities in San Antonio, the river walk lines and flows through the city center. There are many restaurants and stores that sit adjacent to the river and many people to choose to sit and have a meal while watching the barges that take sightseers sojourning through the city flow. Dinner cruises can be set up to accommodate 20 guests and are a fantastic get-away if nightclubs or loud bars are just not your things.

The Pearl District

This district is a hip and up-and-coming part of downtown San Antonio. It is home to trendy shops, historically preserved buildings and a reputation for good eatin’. Weekends at the Pearl District are a treat, with vendors from a 150-mile radius coming to display their goods at a jubilant farmers market.

At Corporate Comforts, we are the premier temporary housing provider in Northern New Mexico, Southern New Mexico, West Texas, Central Texas, and the Gulf Coast. Depending on your needs, we can set you up in cities like El Paso, Albuquerque, Austin and San Antonio.

It doesn’t matter whether you are on an extended business trip, in the Military or work in the entertainment industry. We offer housing to clients from all industries and walks of life. You might be asking the question: “what differentiates corporate housing from all of the options listed above?” Read on to discover the best temporary housing solution for you.

Hotels vs. Temporary Housing

Options such as Air Bnb and traditional hotels can be fun. Room service, maid service and prime real estate are usually some of a hotel’s best selling points. However, staying for more than a few weeks at a hotel can seriously break the bank. Hotels generally do not have a full cooking solution (such as a stove top, oven and dish-washing machine) with the exception of a microwave. Eating out most nights of the week can not only be unhealthy, but it can cut into your savings account. This is why we offer corporate housing!

Imagine walking into a clean, fully-furnished apartment with a full kitchen with dishware and silverware. Our apartments are usually located in rental communities that are leased and turned into ‘turnkey’ housing. What this means is that you receive more amenities than a hotel for a fraction of the price. The majority of our units include appliances, furniture, alarm clocks, bedding, towels, cable and capped utilities. Internet access and entertainment options (such as DVD players) come standard. The amount of money you will save compared to an Air Bnb or hotel can be substantial.

What To Bring to Your Furnished Apartment

We offer full ‘turnkey’ solutions in New Mexico and Texas. All you have to bring to your new temporary housing is luggage, bathroom appliances/toiletries and a grocery shopping list! If you love to cook your own meals and like to eat healthy, our corporate housing is a no-brainer. If you have a child, you will have to provide baby furniture due to insurance reasons. Companies choose us because we are less expensive than a hotel stay and provide a much more ‘homely’ feel.
