Q: What is co-living? A: Co-living is more than renting a room. When you rent a room, it’s a transaction. You stay in your room and if everyone gets along, great. But it’s all just a business transaction. Co-living is a residential community living model that accommodates up to 6 unrelated people. It is an intentional community that provides shared housing for people with similar values or intentions.
Q: Who is Community Room Rental for? A:You will have endless opportunities to start new and interesting conversations, share ideas and experiences with like-minded individuals, leave your mark and help to build this amazing community. Creatives, consultants, bankers, hospitality managers, healthcare workers, and so on… in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Median age of our tenants is 36, but remember, age is just a number, but Adulting is forever! There are people new to this city, just like you, and they are looking for YOU.
Q: How long of a lease do I need to sign? A: We have leases ranging from 6-month to year long leases. Longer leases give you a discount of course!
Q: How do you handle utility payments? A: Easy! All utilities are included. Trash, water, sewage, wifi, gas and electricity.
Q: Do you provide cable? A: We want the house to be interactive and TV seems to always shut that down. However, you are free to put a TV in your room, attach an antenna or stream content.
Q: How big are the rooms? A: Depends upon the house. Each house has rooms ranging from large master bedrooms to guest rooms. Some have large rooms above garages, former rec rooms, and many other options. Best to schedule some time to check it out for yourself and see if it fits your needs.
Q: If something else in the community becomes available, can I switch out? A: Yes, you can transition to another room or another location and we won’t consider it a break of your lease.
Q: Do you have plans to get to X part of town? A: Chances are YES, as we are constantly adding new places. Check with us on our master plans.
Q: How do I know I’ll have house mates I’ll get along with and that are truly like-kind? A: We have several steps we go through for every applicant to make sure they fit the house. Couch potatoes need not apply! Each applicant is interviewed, must pass a criminal background search, and agree to the common house guidelines. This weeds out those that just want a cheap place!
Q: Are the rooms themselves furnished? A: The house comes fully furnished with the items in the kitchen, living room and shared spaces you need to live comfortably. However, we do not furnish bedrooms directly. However, we have a partnership with Ikea to obtain the Essentials Kit for furnishing your room on a budget.
Q: How much is the security deposit and is it refundable? A: $400 of the security deposit and $300 is refundable.
