The number of people looking to live with roommates has been growing increasingly. Renters want to share their living expenses with someone because of the skyrocketing prices of rent and lack of adequate housing in the market.
Co living spaces are sprouting up all over San Francisco in response to the demand of youngsters for affordable housing.
They are an arrangement of housing in which people share their living space with like-minded people of similar values and intentions. Having originated from ‘hacker houses’ in the 2000s, these spaces are modern forms of boarding houses.
Here are a few of the co living spaces that are attracting Millennials in San Francisco.
1] VYBE Living
VYBE Living has a mission to bring together people of diverse cultures together who want to help each other grow professionally and personally. With community support being a central tenet in their vision, they want people forming lifelong connections with each other.
Housemates are matched with each other based on personal preferences and interests. Residents are provided with housekeeping services, groceries, wifi and monthly community events. They now are spread over 30 locations throughout San Francisco.
2] Zeus co living
Zeus co living wants to replace the impersonal feeling rentals have for people who are always on the go. Instead, the company wants people to feel at home and experience relief and enjoyment while they’re in the city, whether for a month or six months.
