Why Co-Living Today?
The housing market is in crisis. Increasing prices, demographic changes and property scarcity has created a new generation asking desperately for living solutions beyond home ownership. Add to this a rental model that lacks any kind of service with long term contracts and ever escalating costs and you’re left with a large proportion of the population unable to live in the types of homes and in the kind of locations that would offer them they lifestyle they desire. I’m sure that many of you reading this have experienced this very real situation, if you don’t own your own home, the options available to you are few and far between.
What Is Coliving?
