Contributing to the resolution of the housing crisis

Finding adequate accommodation, whether short- or long-term, may be difficult for young people worldwide. There is a substantial gap between the demand for and availability of homes. At the same time, interest rates on mortgages are rising, making it more difficult for people in this age bracket to acquire quality homes.

By employing digital technology to standardize the housing process, Habyt hopes to improve the renting experience for occupants of rented properties. The new company does away with stages not essential to getting accommodation, such as the cumbersome paperwork. Travelers, locals, and professionals all have the opportunity to take advantage of its versatile living possibilities.

Renters have the option of choosing between communal and private living spaces based on their individual preferences and the constraints of their budget. Because we want your move to be as stress-free as possible, every Habyt unit comes completely equipped.

To get the ball rolling, a prospective renter must fill out an online application to reserve the housing they want. The sales staff at Habyt will contact the applicant to finalize the reservation details.

After that, the renter is responsible for signing all required paperwork and selecting a move-in date for themselves. Habit will provide instructions for the move-in procedure. All of these tasks may be completed over the Internet.
