Flatio analysed the data from Eurostat of companies offering medium-term rents. The analysis showed that the only other company on the market , except from Flatio, is flt-club.com. “It seems that medium-term rents are undiscovered segment on the real estate market. The results of our analysis supported our idea to expand beyond Czech borders. We are already working with investors who will help us to become a service with offer of medium-term housing in all big European cities,“ says Rezek.
The analysis is based on publicly available data from Eurostat from 2014. It shows/registers nights spend divided according to length of stay. Flatio added the data of average cost per night in individual cities.
Flatio is a specialist for a-few-month housing and it is here for those who need temporary home usually for longer work visits, studies, Erasmus program or during reconstruction of their own properties. It also serves those who come from other countries to visit their families and friends for a longer time.
The idea is to connect real estate business with the newest technologies to simplify the whole process of renting.
