Q: What makes your short-term, furnished homes special?
A: At Norton Property Services our homes are furnished, maintained, and managed as if they were our own residences. Our furnishings are hand-selected and company owned. The furniture, linens, and kitchen accessories in each home are meticulously maintained, thoroughly inspected, and cleaned before each move-in. We continually consider the comfort and convenience of each home we outfit and maintain. One example of this commitment is our choice of mattresses that we use in our temporary housing. The majority of our clients comment on the comfort of the beds, and many have inquired as to where we purchase our bedding. A well-rested guest is a happy guest.
After the initial home setup, we also take pride in making adjustments and adding creature comforts during the client's stay. Our property management services have successfully addressed many requests over the years, including room darkening, cribs for grandchildren, patio fencing, and additional freezer storage. This attention to detail and commitment to our guests is all part of our goals and determination to make our client's experience not just temporary, but extraordinary!
Q: What is the minimum stay at one of your properties?
A: Most of our homes require a minimum stay of 90 days. There are some cases in which a stay of fewer than 90 days may be available. Please contact us for availability. Because we realize that not everyone requires a three-month stay, we have partnered with Marriott Residence Inn - Raleigh-Cary and Hyatt House, Raleigh-Durham Airport to provide our customers with an outstanding resource for their shorter-term needs.
Q: If my plans change, can I stay longer than my original term?
A: As a tenant of one of our corporate homes, you are able to keep your home for as long as you require. After the original term has expired, the contract will default to a month-to-month agreement at the same rate. We require only 45 days' notice before you depart the property.
Q: What is included in the residences?

All of our homes feature full-size kitchen appliances, as well as a washer and dryer. Our homes include kitchen, bed, and bathroom linens/accessories.
