Moving to a new city can be stressful all on it’s own, but finding a place to live? That really takes the cake. There’s just so much to decide when you want to rent a house in Pune – the budget, the location, the utilities, the neighbourhood. And once you actually choose a place you need to actually arrange everything and make it livable, at a huge expense. There’s got to be an easier way to do this, right?
Well, you’re in luck because there is an alternative housing solution that’s the perfect solution – coliving. The privacy and freedom of living in a flat combined with the fun and community feeling of living in a hostel comes together in this new accommodation form that’s becoming all the rage in Pune. So, if you’re looking for a place to stay in Pune, here are a few reasons why coliving might be the right answer for you.
When you’re in your twenties, the last thing you want to do is shell out a huge chunk of your hard earned money on rent every month. And that’s beside your other daily expenses on food, travel, utilities, etc, not to mention your initial security deposit, brokerage and furniture installation charges. Let’s have a moment of silence for your drained bank account. Well, with coliving, things don’t have to be that way. Coliving spaces are designed to be used by multiple people, allowing you to split the cost of rent utilities with your co-residents. You’ll also have access to a host of communal spaces and gadgets, making your life a lot more sustainable. Affordable living = coliving.
Let’s be honest for a moment. No one actually likes doing household chores. Well, imagine if we told you that you’d never have to do a chore again. Coliving makes that possible. Since these spaces are often professionally managed, you’ll have access to housekeeping and laundry services included in your monthly rent. Which means never having to worry about your health and hygiene in your accommodation. Plus, they’re going to have strong, tech-enabled security systems in place so that you can feel safe too. Some newer places like Stanza Living even have tie-ups with different brands for salon or food delivery services so you’ll literally have the best of both worlds.
If you’ve thought about living in a hostel, but are worried about the lack of privacy, or if you’ve always wanted to get a flat but don’t want to end up bored or lonely, coliving is the happy medium that you’re looking for. Here, you get to enjoy the best of community and privacy. Inside your room, you’ll be free to live autonomously and make your own rules. But when you’re in the mood for company, all you need to do is head to one of the many communal areas in your residence. You can hang out with your friends in the common room, catch a movie or share a meal together, before retreating to the privacy of your own space. It’s the simplest balance between me-time and we-time that you’ve been looking for.
Traditional leases last for at least a year. But if you’re trying coliving, you’ll be amazed at the level of flexibility that it offers. Brands like Stanza Living will allow you to take a lease that’s as short as three months, if you’re someone who moves a lot. Plus, since coliving spaces are fully furnished and kitted out with all the amenities you could possibly need, you don’t need to invest in furniture or home appliances. This gives you the flexibility to live light and only bother with your personal belongings. It’s the perfect solution for youngsters today who are constantly on the move.
We’re sure that these reasons are enough to convince you to give coliving a try. But if you want some more proof, go and visit one of Stanza Living’s residences and see the magic for yourself. You’re going to want to try this new take on traditional housing solutions as soon as possible!
