We are two decades deep into the 21st century and technology has changed the way we approach life. In 2000, the current world would have looked futuristic but today it is a reality and humans have adjusted and adapted eagerly to the new normal. When technology has made life easier, why complain. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the new age experience!
Do you need to leave your home for anything these days? You can get whatever you need by pressing a few keys. Whether you need to buy groceries, milk, clothes, jewellery, or even take a loan or buy insurance, all you need is to go online, place your order and wait for it to be delivered home. Technology has completely changed the way we live and do things.
Today’s millennials have got used to the online shopping culture. They are accustomed to getting the online Genie pop out and attend to their every wish and command. Whether it is a midnight craving, sudden guests, running out of groceries, or paying fees you have an app for it. Left something at your friend’s house and can’t go all the way to pick it up? Well, there is someone who takes care of that as well. Technology and innovative startups have made our life a lot easier and hassle-free. So, why on earth would you need to stick to the old-fashioned way of house hunting? You can surely find a way to do your property hunting online.
So what if it is PG accommodation? If there is demand, it is bound to be supplied. That’s market economics simplified for you.
It is a busy life we are leading and nobody has the time to go through the physical stress of house hunting, going up and down unfamiliar streets in a new city, trying to find the right place at the right price. It can be quite tricky dealing with brokers and house owners on your own. Unless you have a fair idea of the prevailing prices in a locality you could easily be taken on a jolly ride. While taking a PG accommodation on your own, you need to be extra careful about the people you would be sharing space with. Who vouches for their integrity? What is the recourse if something goes wrong later?
What are the advantages of booking a PG accommodation online? Let us explore these, one at a time.
The entire range of options at your fingertips
Unlike the traditional style of house hunting where you depend on the neighbourhood real estate broker, today, you have access to complete information at your fingertips. You can just type in the right keywords on your google search and voila, a list of search results will pop up. When you apply the right filters, you can narrow your search to the neighbourhood and price range that you are looking for. There is no need to walk up to every address that the broker provides and waste your time and energy. A little bit of smart navigation will throw up all the information you want.
Once you identify a few properties that meet your needs you can opt for a virtual tour of the property on the website. The property manager can conduct a guided tour of the property and you can get a fairly decent idea of the size and location of the property.
If you are unsure about the property or the quality of the neighbourhood, you can just look it up on the internet. You will get all the information you want about the neighbourhood, what it is famous for, whether it was in the news lately for the wrong reasons, law and order situation etc.
This information can help you to make a prudent decision regarding the location of the property.
Even in this regard, an online booking gives you the flexibility to compare multiple options before you decide to choose the PG accommodation that suits your pocket. There is no need to rush and agree to the first property you see. You can shortlist a few properties, create a comparison chart and arrive at the best deal. Online booking sites normally have their pricing and policies mentioned on the website. You can scroll through their FAQ section to get what you are looking for.
There is no need to run around with cash or cheques any more. You can just pay the booking amount online, once you finalize a property. This is usually adjusted against the security deposit. The balance can be paid when you move into the property. Normally, this is a non-refundable amount in case you cancel your booking before moving in. This is a normal practice to discourage frivolous bookings.
So how is Colive different from others and what do they have to offer to people looking for PG accommodation online?
Colive is a concept of shared living where you can co-share living spaces with other like-minded people.

Only Colive residents, guests and housekeeping staff have access to the property using tech-enabled access cards.
