Revive Tired Spaces

You walk by it every day: 

  • that deck that you simply had to build to get the views of the valley, but never use anymore…
  • or maybe it was that huge house to accommodate all of the children who have now grown up and those rooms are all monuments to the days gone by…
  • the pool that you managed to convince yourselves you would use every day, but just can’t be bothered going for a dip anymore. The allure has worn off…
  • the home office that has become the storage room instead of the working office…
  • the tennis court that was such a neat feature when you bought the house, but never actually learned how to drop a serve into that little square on the other side of the net (how does Federer do that every time???)…
  • the giant dining table that goes unused for so much of the day in your quiet lonely house…
  • or it could be the shed that you fit out for a workshop, but never really started on any projects…

The list could go on and on… we live in enormous homes. According to a real estate industry article we have the biggest houses around the world:

“It’s not just that we like our houses big, we’ve also got a lot of rooms to spare. Three in every four homes has a spare bedroom, and the average home has no less than 3.11 bedrooms, according to ABS data from 2012.

While whole families cram into single rooms in other parts of the world, new off-the-plan Australian houses are commonly available in oversized 6 bedroom models, with multiple lounge rooms and bathrooms.”

It can’t be that we are actually using all of these rooms… We can’t possibly have so much stuff that we need to have all of these extra rooms and space in our places.

So what to do with all of this extra space… all of these extra resources?

SpacetoCo offers the opportunity to not only to leverage those Spaces that simply aren’t getting the action they used to but to actually meet people in the process!

Imagine the opportunity to make available a space in your home for short bursts of time. Sounds complicated, doesn’t it? Not really. It takes about 5 minutes to list a Space on SpacetoCo.

It could be that your unused Space is exactly what someone in your neighbourhood, whom you haven’t had the chance to meet yet because we just don’t have time to talk to our neighbours anymore, is looking for to do whatever it is that they need to do.

How good would it be to make a bit of cash, meet some new people, and finally revive that tired old unused Space!
