As the term means, co-living is about living together as a community with like-minded individuals who may or may not be known to you. In a fast-paced world that has become increasingly dependent on technology, the way we live, eat, behave, transact, travel, and interact has transformed. Co-living brings a whole new dimension to PG accommodation, far removed from the image of shabby unfurnished bachelor digs that usually come to mind.

1.Freedom to live independently

Co-living spaces give residents the freedom to explore an independent lifestyle. As newcomers to a city, nobody wants to cramp their life. An independent PG accommodation can seldom meet all the needs and expectations of an individual in terms of amenities and social life. Meeting all the needs would be extremely pricey. If you can find alternate solutions in terms of Co-living options, it makes sense to explore them. Co-living spaces provide residents with a mix of privacy and shared spaces which makes life interesting. Having a house owner breathe down your neck by living in the same premises is not great fun, is it? It takes the fun out of living independently if new rules are going to be imposed every day depending on the house owner’s whims and fancies. Colive understands your need for independence and gives you the freedom to live as you please.

2.Comfort of upgrading your lifestyle

It is difficult to maintain an upscale independent PG accommodation unless you are ready to shell out a bomb. The USP of Co-living spaces is that you can get premium accommodation, great shared amenities, and a happening social life at reasonable rates.

Everyone wants an upmarket lifestyle, but not all can afford it if you need to arrange everything for one person. You do not need to buy any furniture. Imagine the comfort of just moving in with your luggage! You can settle down as soon as you move in because Colive has everything covered for you. The benefit of shared amenities in Co-living spaces is that the cost gets distributed while the enjoyment is shared. It makes tremendous sense to look for a Co-living space as it gives you the best of both worlds. You get the privacy you need plus all the great amenities you can use when you want at no extra cost.

3.Freedom from Household chores and Maintenance

Honestly, how many of us would love to do household chores? Probably none of that was indeed possible. Imagine getting home after a long day at work/college and having to do the cleaning and washing and taking out the trash. It would be so convenient if they could get themselves done on their own. Well, at Colive, you get complete freedom from these chores. Doesn’t that sound like music to you, guys and gals? Co-living spaces have dedicated housekeeping staff to handle the sweeping and mopping and keeping the place spotless. Smart laundry is available for washing. What’s more, dinner is provided at most Colive properties and breakfast at some places too. Of course, if you love your cooking, every apartment comes with a well-equipped kitchen where you can display your culinary skills.

4.Comfort of a safe and sanitized environment

Keeping in mind the Covid-19 pandemic, it is even more important to have a safe and sanitized environment for PG accommodation. At Colive, extra precautions are taken to maintain hygiene and sanitized living spaces. Residents are given tech-enabled access cards that work on facial recognition. Nobody has access to the property except Residents, their guests, and the housekeeping staff. All Colive properties have cameras fitted for 24/7 surveillance. Besides, there is an emergency response team and a dedicated helpline to handle all emergencies. In case women are uncomfortable about unisex accommodation, Colive also provides all women PG accommodation to address safety concerns.

5.Freedom of finding like-minded people

Life can get pretty frustrating when you have to share your living space with people you have nothing in common with. At Colive, you can find people who share common tastes and interests. We try our best to ensure that you find people you are comfortable with based on your tastes and preferences. 

Co-living can be fun because you get to interact with a lot of people from diverse walks of life. It gives you a new vista to explore. In an independent PG accommodation, you would have limited or no choice. At the end of the day, you need to unwind and relax and not be upset or irritated by the incompatible people you are living with. At Colive, you can request a transfer from one property to another and the minimum lease period is only one month. In an independent PG accommodation, the minimum lease period is 11 months, and premature termination needs two months’ notice or a penalty. So one wrong decision can leave you stuck with the wrong people for a year.

6.Comfort of affordable rates due to economies of scale

Getting an affordable PG accommodation is not an easy task, especially in busy cities like Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, or Pune. You will either end up getting a bare, unfurnished place or an overpriced plush accommodation. Nothing can give you a middle path where you can get a private space combined with shared common spaces. This is the niche where Colive operates. Colive can provide premium PG accommodation at reasonable rates because of the economies of scale. The security deposit demanded by private house owners in Bangalore can be as high as ten months’ rent. However, Colive charges only a nominal two months rent. Depending on your budget, Colive offers you single/double/triple bed occupancy.

The price charged by Colive includes the cost of electricity, Wifi, and maintenance. You pay nothing extra. The rooms are modern, well furnished, and well ventilated. You get a private space with a bed, study, and storage space. The living area and kitchens are also well equipped. The shared amenities are excellent, and it would be impossible for you to get the same in an independent PG accommodation. Moving to Colive would be a smart choice for newcomers for it would give you a great experience.

7.Freedom from Boredom

We all need our freedom of choice, the flexibility to choose the way we want to live. We need flexibility around how we want to spend our time outside of work. Living alone can be boring, but at Colive, you will never feel bored because it is such a happening place.

Colive organizes quarterly tournaments in cricket, badminton, foosball, tennis, and FIFA. There is a reading corner for book lovers and a gaming zone with a Playstation and Board Games. You can party on the weekends and enjoy the DJ nights or a Barbeque Party. There is a Screening room where you can enjoy a movie or the Netflix series or cheer for your sports team. You can call your colleagues over and have a brainstorming session. 

Most Colive properties serve dinner, and in some properties, they serve breakfast as well. Smart vending machines from Big Bazaar and other partners allow residents to buy what they need at attractive discounts. Bounce and Yulu offer discounts on commutes and free bike rides as well. Whew, there are so many perks of living at Colive. If you just feel lazy, you can stay in your living room and watch television.
