Coliving: reasons to try it in Mexico

Because renting is getting more expensive. Sharing department is increasingly painful. It's time to try the coliving in Mexico.

Renting is becoming more expensive

Mexico City stands out as one of the cities with the most expensive rents in Latin America (CAF, 2017). In this city, the market forces you to choose between location and space. Living close to the main work centers can cost you up to six times more expensive than living on the outskirts of the City. A person with an average salary of the CDMX only has enough to rent 14 m2 in the central delegations. But in reality these spaces do not exist or are service rooms on the roof.

Sharing is painful

Therefore, more and more people are sharing apartments with strangers. These people use platforms like DadaRoom and Facebook groups to find rooms where they share spaces and expenses with different roomies. But sharing a department in the informal market is not fun at all. Just googling "roomates" and "Mexico City" to find articles on how to avoid fights with your fellow department. To show a button: "5 ways to cut with your roomie ", Cubic Meters.

In theory, sharing department helps you meet new friends and save money. In reality, sharing in Mexico City today is an experience full of uncertainty and pain. If you are not lucky, sharing means reaching a department with terrible maintenance and furniture that is about to collapse. Almost always, sharing means living with people who do not know if they are going to pay the rent or the services that they receive on time. The normal thing is that sharing involves living with people who have a different lifestyle. They leave the dirty dishes in the kitchen. Or that they organize long parties during the week when you want to sleep.
