Finding accommodation is one of the first things an international student or a newcomer will want to tick off their to-do list and doing that is more of a pole vault than a hurdle for anyone who is new to a country.
In most cases, people end up getting an Airbnb, which is far beyond their budget, simply so they won’t be homeless in a new country and most importantly, so they have peace of mind.
“In our early days here in Canada, we faced this struggle ourselves”. With the experience of helping over 2000 International students with their rental during the middle of the pandemic and together 5 years of property management experience, Haletale co-founders, Anashwar Parayil (CEO) and Mohammed Roshan (CPO) have made the call to give up their aerospace careers and since worked hard on developing a solution to it.
Finding an appropriate rental is a tedious process and it’s twice as hard for International students and newcomers, with no existing rental accommodation system supporting them due to the lack of history in the country.
It’s almost impossible to plan to arrive in a new country on the first day of a month and move in. In addition to this, no landlord would allow living in a property without at least signing a minimum 1-year agreement. With no experience of living in this country, how does one predict and plan all of this, and find a place they can call home? As a result, people are either forced to book expensive Airbnbs or end up working with individuals who take advantage of this helplessness.
Haletale is a co-living platform creating affordable and flexible housing solutions to facilitate an easy transition for International students and newcomers to the country. We provide all-inclusive, budget-friendly and move-in-ready units.
We’re currently operating out of Toronto and looking to expand our reach to help newcomers to have an easy transition throughout North America and globally
