Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SAN FRANCISCO - Jun 03, 2019 - Anyplace, the new marketplace platform for short-term, turn-key furnished housing solutions, announces today that it has raised a $2.5m seed round from UpHonest, FundersClub, East Ventures, Jason Calacanis, and LAUNCH Fund. Founded in 2017, Anyplace makes securing a month-to-month living arrangement is as easy as booking a hotel.
Anyplace’s platform brings together established real estate entities in search of reliable occupants — extended stay hotels, serviced apartments, and co-living companies — and renters looking for low-friction, affordable living arrangements. People in need of stable temporary accommodations like students, digital nomads, and business travelers can benefit from Anyplace’s simple online booking process and flexible lease terms while avoiding the hassles of traditional housing arrangements like furniture, utilities, and Wi-Fi.
Anyplace also minimizes the legal and monetary risks to property partners: rental candidates are screened and vetted, on-time rental payments are guaranteed, potential legal costs are insured, and marketing budgets are available to help connect qualified tenants with quality accommodations.
“As a digital nomad myself, I was frustrated with the lack of reliable housing options available to people like me. Technology has freed us to live and work wherever, whenever and however we want, yet traditional housing options haven’t kept pace, requiring long-term commitments, paperwork and endless searching,” said Steve Naito, Co-Founder and CEO of Anyplace. “We’re out to change all that by providing hassle-free, turn-key lifestyle options to people wherever they go.”
Anyplace currently serves 12 North American cities – New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, Austin, Miami, Houston, Sacramento, Atlanta, Montreal and Guadalajara – with Seattle, Washington DC, San Diego, and Las Vegas being added this year. Anyplace will expand to Europe in late 2019 and Asia in 2020.
Founded in 2017 by CEO Satoru Steve Naito and CTO and Koichi Tanaka, Anyplace is a marketplace connecting people to flexible short-term housing options. It provides both renters and landlords with a curated, stable base of options for housing. To learn more, visit https://www.anyplace.com
