Unique unit types

Common has become the global leader in managing nontraditional multifamily assets like coliving and microunits. Any units with 3 or more bedrooms can be operated as coliving, generating NOI premiums.

If your building has large unit types that are difficult to market and lease, Common can turn those units into the most valuable units in your building.
