Co-living, especially in the San Francisco area, has been a trend that has been gaining lots of popularity recently in the housing industry. The recent rise in co-living has been of great help to students, interns, and tech-workers in the bay area and many more individuals are choosing this option when coming into the city.
So what exactly is co-living and why is it so prominent in large cities?
Co-living is actually a term that is short for communal living, where individuals such as entrepreneurs or interns are offered short-term housing when coming into a new city to work. It is especially common in cities such as San Francisco, the center of technology and innovation. The concept offers an opportunity to live in apartments and residences at a very affordable price, a fraction of what you might have paid for otherwise!
Apart from saving you money, choosing a shared community housing within San Francisco also offers you a chance to meet new friends and people with the same interests as you. Students, interns, and young professionals from all over the world choose our San Francisco shared rooms, offered at affordable prices, where they can participate in fun socials, events, and hangouts with all different kinds of friendly people.
Resident managers also live on-site and often organize fun social events such as pizza parties, game nights, and other opportunities for tenants to gather and meet other people living in the residence!
