Does the idea of a hassle-free living arrangement appeal to you? If you’re a first-time renter, a unit which requires low maintenance from your part would be the ideal. Co-living just might be the perfect solution. Not only does it offer a strong sense of community, but it also removes any maintenance hassle that often comes with renting on your own.
Here’s how co-living lifestyle takes the stress out of maintenance, letting you live comfortably and worry-free.
1. Professional property management
One of the main benefits of living in a co-living property is that it is usually managed by a professional property management company. Unlike traditional rental situations where you may have to deal directly with your landlord, co-living operators have dedicated teams to handle property management, repairs, and maintenance. There is likely to be scheduled maintenance such as for aircon servicing. As there is a team looking after tenant needs, you won’t have to worry about fixing a leaky faucet, replacing a malfunctioning appliance or dealing with a clogged toilet.
2. Regular cleaning or housekeeping services
Co-living spaces typically include regular cleaning services as part of the package. Every week, a cleaner is scheduled to come to your unit to clean spaces such as kitchens, bathrooms and your room. This is a huge relief as you don’t have to spend your personal downtime maintaining the cleanliness of the home. Although you still have to do your part to tidy up your own personal spaces, you can leave the heavy duty cleaning to the weekly housekeeping staff that comes in. This lets you have a better work-life balance and you can come home to a tidy and pleasant home.
3. Fully furnished
Co-living rooms are fully furnished and the common areas are equipped with essential appliances such as a fridge and washing machine. This move-in ready accommodation is very convenient – you can simply bring you personal belongings and settle in immediately. You won’t have to worry about assembling furniture or ordering key appliances.
4. Maintenance requests made easy
If you come across a maintenance issue while living in your co-living space, there is usually communication protocols in place such as streamlined maintenance request process. Often, co-living operators have a mobile app where you can submit a request and a ticket is then logged for your issue. This will be escalated to a maintenance team who will address your concerns promptly to ensure that your living space remains comfortable and functional.
5. More free time
With maintenance well taken care of, you will have more free time to pursue your hobbies, focus on your career or to socialise with your friends within and outside the co-living community. Without the stress of upkeeping your home, you have a better quality of life.
If you prioritise hassle-free living, renting a room in a co-living unit is really a game changer as you can say goodbye to maintenance worries while enjoying an environment that’s well kept with minimal time and effort on your part. If this is what you’re looking for, co-living just might be the ideal accommodation for you.
