Hunting for a place to live with every job/company change is nothing less than a nightmare for working professional which adds a ton of extra pain in terms of time, energy and budget. Startups like Homigo are resulting fruitful in making life of such people a bit easy.
Homigo, an online platform that provides working professionals with fully-furnished houses on sharing basis, has raised $200k in Seed funding.

Homigo provides tenants fully furnished space at an extremely low security deposit and also saves them from brokerage, security deposit. Homigo takes up houses on rent from owners and turns them into ‘Homigo Houses’ by furnishing, providing electrical appliances, household objects like cutlery, utensils etc., and services like electricity, Internet and others, to make it convenient for people.
“We are choosy when it comes to selecting houses. If you see our current houses you will notice a lot of good societies where there all the amenities like gym, pool and a well-maintained club house. Most of the upcoming Homigo houses that you will see will be in societies where bachelors find it difficult to get a house.
