Co-Living London spaces are emerging as a more viable, more affordable and flexible way of living compared to traditionally renting rooms or apartments, especially in times of uncertainty and hybrid work models.
But what makes co-living so attractive and what are its advantages?
Co-living is a saving grace for many who are new to London or pass through as digital nomads and don’t want to commit to a 6-month rental agreement at extortionate rates but rather remain flexible and explore different London hubs before they settle down.
Some property developers are now smelling the coffee and follow suit with their shared ownership properties, which help Londoners get on the property ladder sooner by just buying a more affordable share. They include communal areas in their designs and mix living with pleasure by offering commercial spaces in such buildings for Starbucks & Co. to be conveniently at the ready for residents before heading out to work in the morning.
Most co-living housing costs less than the usual rent as the space one rents is smaller and its communal character reduces overall costs. Renters get access to many communal spaces and are therefore a suitable choice for people who do not value a huge bedroom as much as a vibrant communal kitchen where everyone cooks together.
Another plus is that all bills and amenities are usually included, as well as regular house cleaning and residents can choose between short or long-term leases.
Considering that most co-living spaces are located in central London with an average monthly cost of around £1,000, we can see that to rent a studio apartment without bills and other perks included costs even more:
Co-living presents an opportunity for people to build a social network and connect with other professionals or students from all over the world. For many, co-living has become a lifestyle or business opportunity.
Something they’d do over and over again, like Fernando Raymond, the #1 SEO consultant and digital nomad in London who sometimes works from The Collective Canary Wharf.
