Short-Term Apartment Rentals

This Network of Co-Living Spaces Lets Workers Live All Over the World

— May 3, 2016 — Lifestyle
Instead of singing a long-term lease, consumers can now use a platform called 'Roam' to secure short-term apartment rentals that allow for continuous moving. With more and more consumers working remotely, this platform provides an easy way to live and work nomadically.

Roam consists of a network of communal living spaces located all over the world. The short-term apartment rentals are largely aimed at those who work remotely and are looking for temporary housing. While the rooms themselves are private, residents have access to coworking spaces and communal areas that help to foster a sense of community among those living abroad. Not only are the spaces affordable, but they can also be rented on a weekly or monthly basis.

Roam ultimately combines co-living with nomadism in a way that will appeal to a new generation of remote workers.
Trend Themes
1. Short-term Living - The rise of short-term apartment rentals is disrupting the traditional long-term lease model, creating opportunities for more flexible and affordable living solutions.
2. Nomadic Workforce - As more people work remotely, there is a growing trend towards a nomadic workforce that needs flexible housing solutions, opening up opportunities for platforms like Roam.
3. Co-living Spaces - Co-living spaces like Roam offer communal living arrangements for remote workers, creating opportunities for community building and collaboration among like-minded individuals.
Industry Implications
1. Hospitality - The hospitality industry can leverage the rise of short-term apartment rentals to cater to a new generation of nomadic travelers looking for more affordable and flexible accommodations.
2. Real Estate - Real estate professionals can tap into the demand for more flexible living arrangements by developing and marketing short-term rental properties like those offered by Roam.
3. Remote Work - The trend towards remote work is driving demand for more flexible housing solutions, creating opportunities for platforms like Roam to serve the needs of the growing nomadic workforce.
