Matching busy people who have a spare room with people who need one, The Room Xchange is challenging Australia’s housing affordability crisis.
2016 has been one of the most exciting years of my life. I’ve experienced challenges and wins in equal measure, and it’s been one of the best.
The Room Xchange has potential to change how people live and connect with each other. It could even help the elderly sustain independent living by connecting them with young house Guests.
Hosts utilise their empty bedroom and, in turn, gain their precious time back. Guests can exponentially cut their cost of living and travel experiences by providing help around the house.
It’s a little known secret that the cost of living and housing in Australia is on a continual rise. The effects of this can be seen across the country and through all walks of life.
The Room Xchange founder Ludwina Dautovic says the platform will be similar to Airbnb, but instead of paying for the accommodation, users will complete chores around the home instead.
