1.What kind of PG accommodation are you looking for?

It depends on whether you are moving alone or with family. Depending on your requirements, you can find a single or double accommodation. If you are single, then you would prefer PG accommodation. In a new city, it takes some time to study the neighborhoods and identify a place close to your college or workplace which meets your requirements and is affordable.

You may need to depend on recommendations from relatives or colleagues or register with the brokers. Brokers work on a commission basis, and they would be interested in getting you one that fetches them the best commission. Getting into an agreement with private house owners is a hassle because they can dictate their terms and conditions, which may even be, at times, irrational. They may stipulate that you will have to return by a certain time which may not always be feasible. They may have rules regarding visitors or music or use of shared facilities which may not suit you. 

Moreover, the security deposit charged is quite high, around 6-10 months rental, which is quite steep. The place you get may or may not be fully furnished. Fully furnished rooms would be expensive while unfurnished rooms wouldn’t serve your purpose. You would need to spend a fair bit at one go to get the basics.

Colive offers you PG accommodation in single/double/triple room occupancy. You can pick the format you want based on your budget. Colive Rooms are available in the best residential areas in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Pune. They are high-end fully furnished modern living spaces with premium amenities. You get a private space with a bed and study. The residents of the apartment share common living areas. Yet you don’t need to pay an arm and a leg for it. Compared to the lifestyle you are offered, the rates are very reasonable. The security deposit is only 2 months’ rent which is way cheaper than the market rates.

2.How long do you want your daily commute to be?

Ideally, you would wish for accommodation that is within walking distance so that the daily commute is short. However, it is not easy to find affordable accommodation in good residential areas. The other option is to look at areas that have good connectivity to your workplace/ college. Colive properties are located in all the important residential areas. They are close to the IT parks and other areas which are well connected via public transport.

3.Would you be comfortable doing the household chores?

If you are single, in a new city for your education or job, you might not have the time to do all the household chores by yourself. Doing the cooking, cleaning, and washing daily is not an easy task. Hiring a maid would involve matching the time to your schedule. If you like cooking, you can do it yourself. Else you would need to check if there are decent eating joints/food delivery services.

All Colive Apartments come equipped with a modern kitchen with basic appliances where you can do your cooking. Also, there is a large community kitchen on each property. Most Colive properties serve dinner and some of them serve breakfast as well. This depends on the demand of the residents. Some Colive properties have Big Bazaar vending machines so that residents can buy provisions. Colive properties have housekeeping staff who keep the place clean and spotless. There are designated washing areas fitted with industrial washing machines. So you can enjoy your life as a single and focus on your job or studies instead of being bogged down by the routine.

4.What kind of social life /activities would you prefer?

If you are an extrovert who loves to mingle with people and have an active social life, you would need a neighborhood with malls and movie theatres. Every apartment has a television in the living room in case you want some entertainment or catch up on the latest news or sports events.

The Colive properties have a Wifi connection so that you can work from home comfortably. Colive has an exclusive cinema room for the entertainment of its residents. You can even book the entire room for a special screening with your friends. If you love games, you can use the Playstation in the Game Room that has foosball, table tennis and a few board games as well.

In case you are a fitness enthusiast you can sweat it out in the fitness room. If you are looking for a special evening with your date, the starlit lounge on the terrace would be perfect. 

You would also be able to mingle with professionals from various fields and find people who have similar likes. Better still, you can move to a Colive property along with your colleagues/ friends.

5.What about Safety?

Well, when you look for accommodation in a new city, safety is perhaps the most important factor to be considered. That’s why we have saved it for the end. In a new city, where you do not know anybody, it is dangerous to trust strangers to take their word on anything. You don’t know what kind of trouble that could land you in. In today’s world where crime rates are increasing and happen for the silliest of reasons, it is better to watch your back at all times. When you take accommodation on rent from a private house owner, it is a risky proposition. Despite the written agreement, it is difficult to predict human behavior. In case it doesn’t work out after a couple of months, it would be difficult for you to terminate the contract without a financial loss.

Colive properties, on the other hand, are completely stress and hassle-free. They come with 24-hour power backup. All properties are under 24*7 camera surveillance. Residents are provided with a tech-enabled access card that works on facial recognition. This ensures that unauthorized access is impossible. Colive has an Emergency Response Team and a 24-hour helpline to manage emergencies of any kind like an intrusion, assault, medical emergencies, accidents, natural disasters, etc Colive also offers exclusive All women PG accommodation for those women who are not comfortable with unisex options. Given the Covid-19 pandemic, all Colive properties have extra precautions around hygiene and sanitization.

6.Would you like to have an online house hunt?

In today’s Covid-19 affected world, it is next to impossible to go on a physical house hunt. The safest option would be to surf the internet for suitable options before narrowing down on a suitable property. When you visit www.colive.com you can have a wonderful new experience of virtual house hunting. Welcome to the world of Co-living where you can pay for your space and get access to a host of shared amenities. 

You can check the properties available by setting your filter to the city (Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune) and the neighborhood that is closest to your workplace. You can browse through the available options till you find something that fits your requirement. You can request the property manager for a virtual tour of the property. If you like what you see, you can book the property by paying a nominal amount of Rs 4000. This is adjustable against the security deposit when you check in. In case you cancel before check-in this amount will not be refunded. This is to eliminate casual bookings since Colive properties are always in high demand.

Colive properties can be taken even on a one-month lease which is extremely convenient for people whose job demands frequent relocation. Security Deposit is only for 2 months, far cheaper than the rates charged by house owners. You will not have the house owner breathing down your neck daily.

The spaces are fully furnished, so you just need to bring your bags. You can live your life the way you want. You can find your own set of people with common interests. You can request a transfer to another Colive property if the need arises. What you see is what you get. There are no hidden surprises.
