About Housr

At Housr we are building India's biggest co-living brand. And, would want you very much to be a part of this journey.

We are a mega aggregator of properties focused on creating experiences, fostering communities and bringing millennials together by providing state-of-art co-living spaces enabled by technology.

Founded by real-estate veterans, Deepak Anand and Kalpesh Mehta, Housr is backed by industry heavyweights such as Abhishek Lodha (MD-Lodha Developers), Pirojsha Godrej (Executive Chairman - Godrej Properties) and Harsh Patodia (CMD - Unimark Group and President-Elect - CREDAI.

Housr will become the largest co-living player in India in the next 12 months, with plans to launch 15+ properties and 10,000+ beds across 8 key cities. In the last 6 months, Housr has locked in 5000+ beds across 6 properties in Gurgaon, Noida, Mumbai and Kota.

Housr's strongest differentiators are its product and service offerings and its 'mega communities model'. Housr is the ONLY co-living player in India that is able to rent entire residential towers from landowners on 6 to 9 year leases. This long-term lease model provides 2-3x better yield for builders.

Each property will have 500-1000 residents. This enables strong economies of scale and unparalleled service and community offerings that no other player in India is able to provide.

Housr's product design, done in-house, has a trendy international aesthetic that resonates well with the millennial taste.
