What are teamups?

Roomies on the couch

When searching for a room to rent, sometimes the right combination of roommates and property are not available, so the best solution is to go and rent a whole property and rent out the rooms. Teamups help you do this by enabling you to search for people who are looking for a room in your area and willing to get together to start a new shared home together.

Teaming up to find better roommates

Many roomies believe the people are more important than the property. Teamups allows you to focus on finding the right people first and then worry about the property later. There are many ways you can communicate with a potential roomie to discuss rental interest. You can discuss via phone, text, or email; or you can meet in person at public spaces such as cafes, parks, and libraries. This allows you to โ€œinterviewโ€ the roommate to decide whether they would be the right person to team up with.

Teaming up for a better quality property

Sometimes there are better quality whole properties available to rent than available rooms. By teaming up you can first find amazing roomies and together apply for that amazing home.

Teamup and save money

By teaming up before you rent the whole property you can save money by sharing the agent fees, moving in costs, and splitting the first rent and security deposit. This can make starting a share house a lot less risky than going alone.
