After renting off-campus for three years, we experienced the challenges that students face every year. From finding a quality place to live to landlord-tenant communication to dealing with countless house repairs, and coordinating everyone's rent in order to get it paid on time. These issues were distracting us from our education and caused our parents unnecessary headaches as well.
We later became investors in the area ourselves and began seeing things from the other perspective. As landlords, we not only faced similar issues as students but now had to deal with headaches ranging from filling the home with quality tenants to managing the financials. All while trying to expand our portfolios.
We quickly realized the problem was that college real estate was not professionalized. It's neglected by real estate agents, students are learning about real estate for the first time, and landlords have to deal with an ever-changing landscape of tastes and preferences where they cannot find or manage their tenants in traditional ways.
dwel.co was born out of these problems, with the simple mission of Simplifying Living. We are eliminating headaches and hassles for landlords, students and parents by automating the rental experience. We consistently look for new & innovative solutions to help modernize the off-campus housing experience, and improve the lives of everyone involved.
