You can overlook what you spend on furnishings - until you check your bank account the following month. And it can tie you to a specific location, which isn’t how people often wish to live these days. We have interior designers in-house, experts making the decorating choices so
roommates don’t have to - so no afterthoughts or fights. These are professionals, this is what they do, and we can leverage our size to make better purchases. So we are able to open that gap and pass on that value.
We also bring down the price point by designing a home specifically for co-living. What typically drives up pricing in real estate is paying for unused square footage. If you’re not using the square feet to the highest potential, if you’re paying for private space that you would be happy to share, you’re driving up the price. If you bring design to that equation, and invite people to share, you can create value, to both the developer and the renter. You can also take
that to add more value, by creating additional outdoor spaces, or community rooms. Design can add richness in the movement paths and the intimacy of the spaces created.
