In today’s fast paced world with cut throat competition in every sphere of work, there come a time in everyone’s life when they have to leave the comforts of their home and go to a new city or a new state in many cases for work or for higher education. Among the various other struggles that one goes through in this process, one of the most strenous tasks is to find a good house. When we look at the growing Real Estate sector, we may feel that this is a cake walk given the number of properties available in the market. However, if we dig a little deeper, we find that this is the most important and difficult task at hand, moreso if you are a bachelor. To derive a solution to this very problem GetSetHome was set up.
GetSetHome is a service, a platform and an access to good quality shared accommodations. Founded in March 2014 by Shabnam Kadwani, Junaid Shaikh and Muddassar Virani. GetSetHome aims to revolutionize the way individuals seek housing rentals for their long term accommodation needs.
Shabnam Kadwani, an MBA in Marketing from NMIMS, Mumbai, was a part of the core team at BookMyShow responsible for the launch and growth of the brand. Worked there for 8.5 years and headed various verticals in that period and has great expertise in Advertising, Marketing, Brand Launch, Mobile, CRM and Sales. Junaid Shaikh has also worked with BookMyShow and was Business Strategy. He has great experience and well-rounded knowledge in Business Strategy, Expansion, Operation, Product Innovation, Technology & Execution. Muddassar Virani has an MBA degree in Operations from Symbiosis and is a green belt certified six-sigma professional with 14 years of Experience in Operation & Sales.
They have recently added Ashish Hemrajani as an Advisor. The team apart from the 3 co-founders has 10 other employees across Business, Sales, Tech & Operations. They are working with a few freelancers for design & content.
GetSetHome provide completely furnished homes – a set home that takes away the mental stress from both the Owners & the Bachelors. They lease the property from the owner, completely furnish it & add all necessity amenities like Microwave, Fridge, Washing Machine, TV, etc. We then offer these houses to individuals on a sharing basis. We also offer services & house bills like house cleaning/maid, Wifi, DTH, Water & Gas Bills to the tenants. Our staff on their weekly inspection visit ensures maintenance of the house. We also provide choices on room sharing plans such as single occupancy to triple occupancy for a room with like-minded individuals. We have flexible stay terms by the month or year to suit any budget or lifestyle. In short these are all inclusive, no-stress packages for bachelors where they can simply walk in with their luggage.
GetSetHome currently operates out of Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore and has 35 properties listed on its portal with 90% occupancy ratio. So far 450+ tenants have stayed with them. Their plan is to offer quality accommodation to more than half a million bachelors over the next 3 years.
With these statistics by their side GetSetHome aims at becoming the largest platform for managed & shared rental solutions that provides access to quality accommodations for long term stays. They are definitely on the path to become a platform that cuts down and eventually eliminates the unorganised channel prevalent & growing rampantly today but which misses to fulfil the need & expectation of the stakeholders.
