SqrFactor presents Plug & Play Living Competition in association with Key Players in Co-living Industry

Text by SqrFactor

Co-living, the new lifestyle mantra within the millennial generation; is a form of housing which combines private living spaces with shared communal facilities.

The biggest driving force behind the rising popularity of co-living spaces are the young renters moving to new cities for job prospects who are looking to meet and connect with new people.

Experiences are replacing ownership of assets for the millennials and travel is an important part of their life – be it work related or leisure oriented.

SqrFactor Plug-N-Play Competition

For the millennial population, job mobility is the primary priority and home ownership is secondary. Unlike Gen X, homes are not the same emotional investments as they used to be. Rather, homes are viewed as a consumption product which suits housing requirements in a particular phase of life.

Co-living usually operate on a plug-and-play model that saves tenants the hassle of dealing with everyday household chores and also from the burden of paying frequent utility bills; giving them a lifestyle which is comfortable and with no strings attached.
