5 Perks of Coliving for the Young Entrepreneur or Digital Nomad
What is coliving you ask? To put it simply, it’s a niche industry of intentional, community-style housing, usually facilitated by a company like Roomrs. This phenomenon is focused on creating spaces that form authentic communities for students and young professionals to thrive.
But what can you actually expect from a coliving experience and why is it worth looking into? We broke it down for you.
Flexible lease options
Whether you’re a young entrepreneur relocating to a new city, or a digital nomad with no foreseeable plans of settling in one place for too long, flexibility is key. With Roomrs in New York City and many other similar companies around the world, members can choose from lease terms ranging anywhere from 3 to 12 months. This range of lease options allows members to easily find a place to call home, regardless of their future plans. Whether you’re just in the city for a few months, or are looking for a more permanent solution, you can rest assured that you won’t have to search far and wide for what you need.
All you really need to bring is your suitcase
It doesn’t matter if you’re relocating cross-country, or just cross-town, moving requires a ton of time, effort, and assets. What if you could find someone to provide all the basics for you, so you didn’t have to?
That’s exactly what coliving is all about. The actual items offered to members vary from company to company, but the overall point is: coliving takes the hassle out of the moving process. At Roomrs, your apartment comes fully furnished with all the essentials, so you can arrive with your suitcase and just start living.
Utilities are included, too
In a typical new apartment scenario, not only is it on you to hunt for your new home, negotiate pricing, hire movers, make that inevitable trip to Ikea to buy furniture, lug said furniture back to your apartment, and somehow put it together, you are ALSO responsible for setting up your utilities with a number of third party companies. One for Wifi, another for gas and electric, yet another for water. . . it can become tiresome and near impossible!
With coliving, you don’t have to worry about any of that. Everything is all set up, ready for your arrival, and all looped into one easy, monthly payment. Instead of spending all that time stressing, you can spend it doing things that count.
A built-in community
It doesn’t matter how shy or sociable you are, meeting new people isn’t easy. To make matters worse, whether you’re new to the area or not, finding the right ways to network in today’s digital age can seem overwhelming.
Luckily, coliving offers the solution to this problem, with minimal work for its members! When you move into a coliving apartment, you are embraced by an automatic community and network of individuals with similar goals and interests. With the help of your new housemates, and an array of events exclusively for members, you’ll have all the resources needed to find exactly what you’re looking for.
If all of that wasn’t enough, many coliving companies also offer additional perks to the members of their communities. In Roomrs’ case, we offer discounts and benefits to local, neighborhood businesses (such as coffee shops, restaurants, and leisure activities), and national partners, including grocery services, fitness studios, co-working facilities and more. The goal behind this? We’re here to supply our members with trustworthy businesses they can count on, at a price they can afford. You may be brand new to the area, but you’ll be navigating like a pro from day one.
As our lifestyles begin to shift, and many move towards more flexible ways of living, the coliving experience is needed more than ever. In many ways, traditional real estate just has not progressed to keep up with our ever-changing goals and desires.
Like we said, that’s where Roomrs comes in. Although it is still a new concept, coliving offers a unique and convenient housing solution that has been vastly improving the way people live and experience new cities.
Roomrs also partners with Croissant, to offer our members a discount to their awesome coworking services! As an entrepreneur or digital nomad, what more could you ask for?
