Frequently asked questions
How much is the membership?
The great thing about Haas is that it's flexible! We offer a sliding scale of membership starting from $1200/month.
What's included? (Hint: everything)
In addition to clean, curated coliving spaces arranged with relaxation and comfort in mind, Haas members all get plugged into a vibrant international community from day one.
What does the co-living room setup look like?
Each bedroom includes three to five of our custom sleep pods and dedicated member storage. The designs are simple and modern. Here is an example from our lastest addition to the fleet. There are more examples of the interiors of our homes on our Community page.
Are the coliving rooms gender specific?
This is awesome! (It is). What's next?
It's a pretty simple process! Often you can even join the same day in time to be home for dinner. General flow is as follows:
We pride ourselves on being human first - no formulaic terms that protects us, and not you. We do this via good old talking and collaboration. Before all is said and done, we do have a digital conversation trail that backs what we are promising you, and your promise to us in return. Everyones covered, but we make sure you know what to expect by talking to you in language you understand.
Coliving is a lifestyle that prioritized access over ownership and experiences over things. People in major cites around the world are discovering that coliving inspires collaboration, serendipity, and authentic connection in a way that networking simply cannot. With basics like rent, utilities, home supplies, communal food and cleaning and home management included in membership, and community affiliation built in, colifers find they have more energy to spend on professional goals, hobbies relationships, and general thriving. Coliving environments are designed and serviced to inspire and empower and support creators, thinkers, and doers so they can live more authentically.
How do I become a Haas Home?
The easiest way is to shoot us a note via our contact page.
Our standard model of building up homes is to offer existing members an upgrade path to having their own private room. This means finding a modern 2 bed/ 2 bath unit they like and then letting us do the rest. In return they get a fully managed home, protected from the traditional roommates hassels (unpaid rent anyone?), while still getting to come home to great people and having room to yourself at about $1000 dollars under other market options. That's more money for you to do!
What about rent?
Haas operates on a model where we pool all the lease payments across the homes on our platform, and then bake it into the full membership fee. The benefit of this is it allows us to better shield anyone home from shocks when the unfortunate happens and someone does't pay their share, or when one home is mid transition with some homemates moving on. We update what this portion is periodically, but practically speaking for you, you simply pay your membership, and we deal with the ups and downs in the background. A portion of the value you are getting with your membership is the insurance against the unfortunate reality that some people don't care who they hurt or use after they are done with them. Now you don't have to deal with the financial and emotional pain this causes. We are you're outsourced punching bag!
Why the name haas?
We come from tech geek roots, and since we are moving home to the cloud, it's a play on S-a-a-S (Software as a Service), that was first popularized by today's heavy weights such as Salesforce.
H-a-a-s is --> Home-as-a-Service. And that's HOME, not Housing.
